I am starting prep for HGP for 2024. I have checked cleaning supplies and added what I need to the planner so I can purchase over the next few weeks. I have printed off my lists and added them to my household binder. I have added the rooms to my planner. This year I hope to start late August, I will miss 2 weeks because of a cruise that DH and I are taking in September. I am ridiculously excited to get moving.
