It’s that time of year again as we celebrate Independence Day on the 4th of July! And to commemorate the day, you’re going to throw the biggest party ever! But hold on there…. What’s that you say? Your place is a disaster and not in any condition to throw a huge party? No worries! We’ve got you covered at TheRTAStore! We’ve compiled a list of three easy things you can do to get your home ready for an Independence Day celebration your friends and family will never forget!
#1 Clear The Clutter
Hey, we all know if you live in a home either by yourself or with others, it’s bound to get cluttered. And any parent or guardian knows if you have kids, they can turn a once clean space into a battlefield in all of ten seconds!
If this is what you have going on inside your home, take time now, a couple of weeks before the 4th is upon us, and start clearing the clutter from your living room, dining room, bathroom, and kitchen.
Make a trip down to your local hardware store and pick up a few buckets to quickly pack up most of the kids’ toys, and store them in another location in your home. Toss any old papers, broken toys, and trash.
#2 Organize Your Kitchen
Most of the prep work for your huge Independence Day bash is going to be done inside your kitchen. If you’re not well organized there, it could become a bit of a nightmare trying to locate items to help you prepare and store any party food before the big day.
At TheRTAStore, we have a wonderful selection of kitchen storage items that will help you get and keep your kitchen well organized before and after your party.
Our Tiered Double Cutlery Drawer, Wood Spice Tray, and our Trimmable Knife Block are a few simple and easy items you can add to your kitchen without having to go through a huge remodel before your celebration.
Does your aluminum foil or plastic wrap keep tumbling out on you as you open your cabinet door? If so, we’ve got the perfect solution for this problem. Our Vertical Door Rack will help to keep the foil and plastic wrap within easy reach while freeing up your cabinet space.
Stop by our Inside Cabinet Accessories section on our website to check out some of the other helpful storage solutions we offer.
#3 Get Your Backyard Ready
If your backyard looks like you need to walk through the forest to get to the garage, then you know it might be time to mow the lawn before the party!
Power wash your deck, clean off your patio furniture, and replace any cushions that might be ripped or worn. Check your barbecue grill to make sure your hose has no holes and your tank has enough gas.
Next, make your backyard festive for Independence Day with some really fun 4th of July food, drink, and party décor!
