How can I make my home presentable in 2 days? I'm not much of a homemaker, but i don't want my judgmental relatives to find out!

My daughters graduating high school on Monday.  We are all going out to eat at a restaurant afterwards, but they might come in before we go to the ceremony.  

I work full time, and I' d rather have fun than clean.  My house is cluttered and not as clean as it could be!  My bathroom and fridge are a mess!  I just feel like I don't have enough time to pull it off!  What would you focus on and do? Everythings a mess!

HELP!  I take care of myself and always look great, and i don't want anyone to know how bad i let the house get!  Especially my snotty SIL!

"I'd rather have fun than clean"? How old are you?

get a garbage bag and toss everything you never use, find homes for the stuff you do use

If you do a little cleaning everyday, it won't add up.  Also, there is a difference between a little clutter, and being dirty.  MAKE time and clean.

Pull everything out, throw away as much as you can, relegate spare furniture and clutter to closets and rooms you can close the doors to and pull them back out after they're gone.

Most people pay attention to the state of the floors, bathrooms, and kitchens more than anything else.

Scrub the bathroom-don't worry about the fridge.  You can put drinks out on a table (cans or cups with 2 liters).  Hide the "big chunks", freshly vacuum the floors.  Light candle for mood lighting--this will hide dust.

Finally WHO THE FREAK CARES it's your house!

Hire a maid.  I can't understand why cleaning is so intimidating.  Is it really that messy?
