In the spirit of new beginnings, we’ve organized a list of some new year resolutions that will make your home more efficient and pleasant to come home to at the end of the day!
Simplify your belongings. After the holidays, most of us have even more stuff to organize. One of the easiest and economical ways to feel better about your home is to get rid of the clutter. Without routine purging, cabinets and drawers become crammed, making it difficult to find the things to use and enjoy the most.
Make it safe and sound. Even smaller levels of clutter can create danger by blocking exits, blocking heating and air ducts, and exposing residents to bacteria and mildew. Consider the low-key type of clutter also. For example, does your home have piles of paper? Are these piles near outlets, radiators, furnaces, or space heaters? If so, they pose a risk for household fires.
Design an exit plan. Decide on what is needed and what you want to keep. Consider going to a storage facility and picking up cardboard boxes. Labels never hurt, making it easier to find your things. If you find it’s time for a rental unit, visit our FAQ area and we’ll provide some answers.
