Creating extra storage space for Christmas is always a good idea. Secondly,

you might want to think about rearranging your furniture so that everybody has a place to sit. You might need to bring down some extra seating from upstairs or use your dining chairs as additional seating too.

Have a Deep Clean

Invest in some new cleaning products this Christmas and feel the pleasure of deep cleaning your home before you put up your decorations.
