One of the most stressful parts of preparing to host during the holidays is that many chores have to wait until the last minute. But while you can't bake the biscuits or do the final dusting until the day-of, there's still plenty of prep you can cross of your to-do list ahead of time. For starters, consult our guide to a prep-ahead Thanksgiving to get the food prep underway. Then, let the list below kickstart your holiday cleaning routine. Take care of these six tasks this week, then follow one of these speed-cleaning routines the day before your guests arrive. With some of the work already done, you'll feel less stressed and more festive leading up the event.
