The holiday party has finally come to an end and it's time to clean up. To efficiently help you tidy up your home, we asked some experts for their best tips to combat post-holiday messes without the stress. From setting up garbage bins in high-traffic areas to using a cleaning caddy as you tackle each room, your home will return to its normal (and cleaner) state.
Read on to find out seven main tasks you'll want to prioritize once your guests depart.
Go ahead and recruit a cleanup crew before your party even begins. Lili Pettit, the founder of Clutter Healing®, Inc. recommends asking guests to stay for 15 minutes after the party to help gather and toss out garbage if they ask to give a helping hand.

Ashley La Fond, founder of home organization company Of Space + Mind, agrees that it's never a bad idea to let guests assist with cleanup if they're willing.
«Being a great host doesn’t mean having to do it all yourself,» she says. «People love to participate and help, and many hands make quick work.»
Once your gathering has ended, kick off the cleanup process with the simple yet critical step of walking around with a garbage bag and placing any trash inside, suggests Tova Weinstock, professional organizer and founder of Tidy Tova. «This will help make an immediate dent.»
If you're hosting a large-scale party, simply keep trash bins set out at all times so that guests can clean up after themselves throughout the evening.
