During cold weather, I love to snuggle up in my bed till very much later in the morning (rarely though) and then boot my brain with a cup of coffee before I can understand my work for the day.

I know it’s mostly the same for everyone if they get the chance!

The cold is just too good to be true! When you are in bed, sometimes, you just want to sleep all day long…except, you have to make money…( laughs…everyone needs to make money!)

Our house gets very dusty during winter because the air is so warm and very dry, managing the level of dust that enters your house will help you control germs and allergens floating around and also help your furnace run more efficiently.

I also prefer to keep my windows and doors locked at all times except when I absolutely need fresh air. It helps me contain the sand, pollen, and insects that fly around with the wind.

De-cluttering and organizing are some of the fast house cleaning hacks that will keep your house manageably clean during the winter.
