While it’s sad to see my guests leave, it’s nice to be able to get things back in order!  While I have been keeping myself organized before my guests arrive and while the guests visit, getting myself back to normal once my guests leaves is not such a cumbersome task.  But a few things I like to do to keep myself organized after my guests visit include:

Wash All Sheets And Towels 
I always throw all of the towels and sheets they used in the washer right after they leave.  This helps from laundry getting piled up.  My goal is to have all of the bedding and towels put away before I go to bed on the night that my guests leave.  It really is my way of being lazy so I don’t have to deal with it the following day.

Clean 
The last thing I try to do once my guests leave is to clean the spaces they used like the bathroom.  It just makes me feel like my home is put back together!
