Holidays: The messiest time of the year?

As families prepare for the holiday season by decking the halls with lights and decorations, a new survey indicates they'll also spend a good amount of time cleaning up their humble abodes.

According to a poll conducted by Georgia-Pacific, an American-based tissue and paper goods supplier, the get-togethers associated with the holiday season nearly triples the amount of time homeowners spend cleaning, particularly among women.

Women tend to spend an average of two hours per week cleaning their homes. But the survey found that holiday gatherings and the events associated with the season can add nearly four hours to that total.

"We wanted to uncover cleaning habits, practices, partnerships and perceptions among today's women and families and get an accurate sense of just how time-consuming cleaning has become," said Lanier Thomas, director of marketing for Brawny paper towels, which are made by Georgia-Pacific.

The survey also questioned the participating women about the best ways others could help them with their around-the-house tasks. At 12 percent, cooking was cited as the job they'd most like to have help with.

While Jiffy Self-Storage may not be able to help with preparing dinner, renting a unit can help make chores more easy to manage, as they can serve as a place to house belongings that may be contributing to clutter.
