How about these three tasks?

1. Declutter your house and garage then hold a yard sale - You’ll raise some extra holiday cash, give a new home to furniture and household goods you no longer need and have your house looking great for the holidays.
Another option is to donate the items to the local Habitat for Humanity Restore and take the tax deduction.



2. Check your bed and bath linens - If you need new items, you’ll have time to watch for a good sale before guests arrive.

3. Baby Proof - Are your children or other guests bringing little ones into your not-so-baby-proof home? There are lots of temporary safety devices to help keep toddlers safe so parents relax and enjoy their visit with you.

If you order childproofing items now, you'll have them on hand to install a few days before guests arrive. You can buy a childproofing kit or single items like cabinet latches, outlet plugs or door knob covers.
