At our house, my husband and I are consistently having guests over, because we love it! We love having people, that we love, in our home. The spirits are high, everyone gets a chance to get to know each other a little better, and you get to share a slice of what your home life may be on a regular day (no matter how crazy that may be). However, there is a major turn-off to having guests over, and that's preparing your house to look guest worthy, a.k.a. clean.
Over the past two years, my husband and I have lived in a small 700 square foot apartment, one bedroom and one bath (luckily it's a mostly open floor plan). So, I have acquired some tools and furniture pieces that help me easily store, hide, and prepare slowly for my guests. Ideally, I have a mostly clean house over the week, and I just have to run around the house like a mad woman for about a half hour to find the little things I'd been putting off.
