Your Home: 3 New Year’s Resolutions
It’s that time of year again, when we make a list of New Year’s resolutions. But have you considered making a list for your home? Doing things to make your home more peaceful and stress-free is a resolution that can help improve the quality of your life all year round! Here are three simple New Year’s resolutions for your home that you can stick to!
- Pare Down: after you have sorted through all the new gifts, it might be a good idea to pare down and donate the things you no longer use or need. Every time something new comes in, something old goes out. That counts for everything, from books to clothes to gadgets. Go room-by-room eliminating anything old that you don’t use or absolutely love and donate it to a worthy charity. Less mess means less stress!
- Get organized: We’ve all heard the term “a place for everything and everything in its place.” Creating designated storage space for messy mayhem-makers like mail, cords, and shoes can help you’re your home organized, neat and tidy. There are literally hundreds of creative storage options from behind the door hangers to under the bed storage bins to vertical shelving corner niches. Thinking outside the box and repurposing one storage item to serve the needs of another is a life saver. Over the door shoe organizers can do more than hold shoes. They make handy holders for everything from jewelry and makeup and more in a bathroom.
- Conduct a Safety Check: this is the perfect time of year to conduct a safety check in your home, to make sure there aren’t any hazards that could harm you or your visiting guests. A thorough safety check includes making long overdue repairs (pipes leaking water on the floor mean slipping hazards so don’t delay!), checking your house for radon, carbon monoxide, and replacing the batteries in your smoke detectors.
