Next throw a couple empty bags in the bottom of the can then put in new liner.
Now place the trash can in the living room within throwing distance, but not to close to smell.
Now for the kitchen, and just like the trash, go ahead and start with a clean slate.
Make sure the sink is empty and the dishwasher is emptied.

These two preparations are going to make that end of the week cleaning spree much easier.
