One Hour Until the Doorbell Rings?? Here’s a plan! | A Slob Comes Clean

A Slob Comes Clean 

Guest Coming In 60 Minutes .

Most important? A reality check. An hour is only 60 minutes, and you can’t go from disaster to perfection in that amount of time. But if you focus on the right things, you can make a major impact and be able to do the one thing that matters: enjoy the time with your guests.

Repeat this phrase to yourself over and over for the next hour: Follow the Visibility Rule.

The Visibility Rule is pretty self-explanatory, but does not come naturally to some people (people like me).

What will your guests actually see? Focus your effort there.

This is not the time to sort through the pesky basket of mateless socks that’s been bugging you for months.

Head to your front door, stand where your guests will enter, and see what they will see. You haven’t noticed that pile of papers on the coffee table because it has been sitting there for months. Seeing your home through the eyes of your guests will keep you on track as you make the most of the next sixty minutes.


My real name is Debra (Debbie Sue). Sarah is a nickname given to me in high school. My husband has always called me that so here in Florida It's all I am known by. I was born and raised in Illinois. My son and I moved to Colorado in 1982. I taught school for 17 years. Then I ran a homeschooling/preschool/daycare until 2006 when I moved to Florida after my son, Bobby died suddenly. He was almost 26. Danny and I live and work at a state park here. I miss the mountains and climate of Colorado. I miss snow and the four seasons. I miss Bobby.
