This winter, we’re all spending more time at home for the holidays. Do you want to give your family the gift of comfort this year? Keep your holiday home cheerful, safe, and simple with a few of these hacks from your friends at Heating Specialties in South Jersey.

Clean Smarter, Not Harder

If you’re feeling overwhelmed with having everyone home for the holidays, try some simple hacks to help you save time and energy this season. Before a holiday meal or opening presents, line your trash can with multiple bags so that you won’t have to get out another bag when it inevitably fills up quickly.

You’ll also want a trash can nearby when opening presents to keep the floor clear of wrapping paper, or a recycling bin since most paper should be recyclable! If your home is feeling cluttered with new decorations or gifts for the season, consider trying a “one in, one out” rule to donate unused decor, toys, or clothes to others in need and help you feel a little lighter.

If You Enjoy a Live Tree …

Whether a live tree is an old family tradition or this is your first year to try one, you may not know this smart hack for easy clean-up. Place a garbage bag down before bringing in the tree, then place your tree skirt over the top of the bag. You could even use an old sheet if you have a very tall tree.

You’ll have a much easier time removing the tree and cleaning up needles later on, and no one will be the wiser in the meantime. Make sure to also water your tree frequently to prevent excess needles from falling, and to keep the tree from drying out and becoming a potential fire hazard near any heating sources.
