Give me a plan of action!

OK, I have exactly one week until the assembled hordes of my family descend for a big family celebration at our house.

Our house is not particularly large to begin with and DH is King of Clutter.

Sadly, in recent weeks, it's slipped to an all time level of squalor due to me being flat out at work. Can't begin to describe how bad it looks.

I know I need to do a major clean and tidy up before the party but I just don't know where to start.

Can anyone give me an achievable action plan, bearing in mind that after 3pm today I have 3 very small DCs at home full time.

Try that, it worked for me and was the start of getting more organised in the longer term too.

Not sure what to say about the DC's though, maybe bribery with a DVD and treats to eat to get you started?

Good luck
