[tweetmeme]Weekend getaways are grand but your home is the ultimate escape.
Interior Designer, Shelly Amoroso, says: “Why leave when you have everything that makes you feel good right at home?” Shelly suggests using your home as the ultimate getaway rather than fight the traffic or stand in long security lines at the airport.
“The best way to do this is to prepare your home first,” Shelly says. “Clean or have your house cleaned from top to bottom. No chores should be done on your staycation. Pay all your bills and open your mail…or put it all in a manila envelope to deal with after the weekend. Make sure you pre-buy everything you’ll need for the weekend and when you venture out of the house, choose something you have never done. Be a tourist in your own town.”
