Making your home LOOK PRETTY can actually make it look clean. In a pinch, you can cheat and skip the cleaning.
So, let’s say your mother-in-law just called. She is on her way and your house is a mess. What do you do? Don’t even think of cleaning, going through your mail, doing laundry or changing the linen. You are on speed mode. Unless you live in the Taj Mahal, the next eight steps will get your home pretty and guest-ready in 20 minutes.
1. Spend the first two minutes meditating to quiet your mind. Next, turn on your favorite dancing tunes and GO!
2. Grab a laundry basket and a plastic garbage bag. You will start from the bedroom(s). Make the beds, do not change the linens.
