Every year, we make resolutions for ourselves. We want to exercise more, spend more time with friends, or save money! We never take the time to think about our homes and the improvements we can make to the place where you spend more of your time. 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. Create a system for keeping your house clean
5. Get your home entertainment readyYou’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!
