With the holidays just days away, youre probably hyperventilating about shopping, wrapping, cooking or traveling. And if youre planning to sell your house in 2011, youve got even more on your plate.
Here are some things you can do over the holidays to keep everyone busy, and that might help your house get in good shape when you're ready to sell.
* Are your kids home from college? Fantastic! Send them out to buy some clear plastic boxes. I like the sturdy ones with interlocking lids because they're easy to stack. Have the kids sort through their own stuff and pack what they want to keep. Remind them that if they havent missed clothing or belongings while they were away from home, perhaps its time to say goodbye to them altogether.
* Middle and high schoolers can be put on toy and childrens book duty. Have them empty the cupboards and make three piles. Pile 1 is for toys with broken or missing pieces. Pile 2, for toys and books they dont want. Pile 3 is what they will keep.
