New Years Resolutions for Your Home

Everyone makes New Year’s resolutions at the end of the year. However, it is also a good time to make some New Year’s resolutions for your home.

Clutter Cleanup

One very effective way to feel better about your home is to get rid of the clutter. Most of us acquire many things throughout the year, but when we don’t purge our cabinets and drawers on a regular basis, it becomes difficult to find what we are looking for. And, clutter makes our homes look messy even when it is clean. So, go from room to room and clear away anything to don’t need, want or use. Many items can be donated to charity, or can even be sold at a yard sale.  

Safety First

Is your home safe? It may look grand but is it safe? Maybe there are things in your home that could be a fire risk or health hazard. Also, check your home for radon. Install a carbon monoxide detector in every bedroom, in addition to fire detectors. Another safety hazard in your home is dryer lint. Clean the little trap inside the door but also clean the vents and ducts behind the dryer.

Lower Your Gas & Power Bills

There are a variety of ways to lower your energy bills such as turning off the lights when you leave a room, installing LED bulbs and low-flow shower heads. Also, turn off your power strips or set your home computer to revert to sleep mode when not in use. Also, have your HVAC system maintained for both fall and spring, when needed.

Weekly Cleaning Schedule

Tips that will help keep your home clean are putting dishes in your dishwasher every night, placing dirty clothes into the hamper and clean your home by trying the following tips: keep all your cleaning products in a portable carryall; one that moves with you from room to room and focus on one type of cleaning at a time.

2019 Entertaining Prep

Preparing and updating your home for entertaining in the New Year doesn’t have to be expensive. For example, potted plants placed in beautiful ceramic planters, liven up living and dining rooms. Also, colorful rugs or runners can brighten a room and add comfort and ambiance to a room that needs color.
