Last Minute Holiday Home Prep: Happy New Year!

I’m sharing tips on last minute holiday preparations as part of a sponsored campaign with CVS/pharmacy.

Total Home New Year's Entertaining

Every year on New Year’s Day, we invite Terrence’s parents to our house for lunch and a movie. It’s our way of paying them back for hosting tons of fun parties for the family at their house for Christmas, and has turned into a cool new family tradition. The thing that I like about this new tradition is that it ensures our place will be clean because guests are coming over! Hey, I’ll take the motivation wherever I can get it! Not that I need a ton of it, though. My partners in all things holiday entertaining,  CVS/pharmacy have my back. From snacks to cleaning supplies and everything in between, I can make one quick stop and have everything I need for our get together.

It’s really simple to prepare our home, though. First, I straighten everything up. There was a time that I’d wait way too long the end of January to take down our Christmas decorations, but not anymore because Terrence isn’t having that! After we get the decorations down, we wipe everything down with Total Home Disinfecting Wipes, and handle tough stains with the Total Home All Purpose Eraser.

Once everything is nice and neat, we put the snacks out. One of the things that I love most about my Mother-In-Law, Mary, is that she’s always open to tasting new things. I can’t wait for her to taste the yummy Gold Emblem, Gold Emblem abound, and Gold Emblem Select snacks like the Mint Cookie Balls, Peanut Butter Filled Pretzel Nuggets, and Terrence’s favorite candy, Cherry Sours, that we got to munch on while we’re watching our movie.
