3 Easy New Year’s Resolutions for your Home

3 Easy New Year’s Resolutions for your Home

It’s the time of year when everyone reflects on the past year and creates a list of New Year’s resolutions. The most popular resolutions are typically: to lose weight, to save money, to spend more time with family, but how often do we include New Year’s resolutions for our home? As your sanctuary, 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 3 simple New Year’s resolutions for your home that you can actually stick to!

1.) Safety Check: The New Year is the perfect time to do a safety check around your house to make sure there aren’t any hazards that could harm you or your guests. That 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.

2.) Pare Down: With all the excess of gifts over the holidays, you may have found that more things came into your home than out. But in the spirit of cutting clutter, set up an “out with the old, in with the new” system. Every time something new comes in, something old goes out. That counts for everything, from books to clothes to gadgets. The more stuff that comes in, the more stuff that accumulates and needs to be organized. 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!

3.) Store More: We’ve all heard the term “a place for everything and everything in its place.” The same simple principle we tell our children in regard to putting their toys away should apply to us adults as well! Creating designated storage space for messy mayhem makers like mail, cords, and shoes can help keep the “unsightlies” out of sight and give you a place to stash stuff easily. 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.

Regardless of what your resolutions are for the New Year, don’t forget to include your home in your planning process. Have a wonderful Happy New Year!

Happy New Year Wish

My Happy New Year wish for you

Is for your best year yet,

A year where life is peaceful,

And what you want, you get.

A year in which you cherish

The past year’s memories,

And live your life each new day,

Full of bright expectancies.

I wish for you a holiday

With happiness galore;

And when it’s done, I wish you

Happy New Year, and many more.

The Regal Team wishes you and yours a prosperous and Happy New Year!
