The month of October is quickly flying by and before you know it November will be here. With November brings the Thanksgiving holiday. Many families get together for Thanksgiving break. If you plan on having family over for Thanksgiving, now may be a good time to instill a plan to get your home ready for company.

When preparing your home for Thanksgiving guests, make sure your guest room is a welcoming place. Make sure to vacuum the floors, dust the furniture, and make the beds. Sometimes guest rooms can become a makeshift storage room. If this is the case for your room, you may need to find another place to store your items. A great place to store things temporarily is with a Fayetteville storage unit. After cleaning your guest room thoroughly, give it another look over. If your bedding looks old, consider buying new sheets and a comforter. You should also make sure you have enough spare pillows for guests. Also consider purchasing some extra clothes hangers for the closet. This will allow your guests to unpack rather than live out of a suitcase during their visit.

If the guest room has a bathroom, make sure it is clean and stocked with bath towels and shampoo. It is also a nice idea to put together a care basket for guests. This can include medication, Kleenex, toothpaste, magazine, and other useful items. Your guests will appreciate not having to lug all their toiletries and other items to your home with the rest of their luggage.

Preparing your guest room and home early will prevent you from becoming stressed during the holiday time. This will allow you to fully enjoy time with your guests and family.
