This New Year, take the time to improve your lifestyle by saving time and money at home. Here are five home resolution for the New Year.
1. GET RID OF CLUTTER AND STREAMLINE YOUR “STUFF”
Go through your house room by room and start donating items that you don’t like or use often. You want the objects in your home to make you feel good.
2. CHECK YOUR SAFETY
The New Year is an excellent time to check the safety of your home and set up a routine to maintain this throughout the year. Check your smoke alarms and clean your air conditioner vents regularly to keep your family safe.
3. CUT DOWN ON ENERGY USAGE
Start fresh by being a little bit greener around the home as your resolution. The little things can make a big difference and save you money; switch off lights and power points when not in use, learn how to recycle correctly, air-dry clothes when possible, and water the garden a little less.
4. IMPROVE YOUR HOME OFFICE
If you feel your productivity was low this year, your work-from-home environment could’ve played a pivotal role. For the new year, try decluttering your home office and remove all potential distractions. If your budget allows, purchase an ergonomic laptop or chair to reduce discomfort. You will soon discover making subtle changes to your home office will increase your productivity tenfold.
5. Get your home entertainment ready
You’ve probably rearranged your living and entertaining areas to accommodate Christmas trees or decorations over Christmas, so what better time to revamp your entertaining area. Switch around the furniture layout and add some indoor plants to update your home and invite conversation.
Setting a home resolution and making little changes around the home can make a big difference and can even help you reach your personal resolutions for the New Year!
