Entering into the new year, the first thing on your to-do list is usually taking down all of the decorations. However, what if you added a few more things to your list to help make your home a little bit more fresh and ready to take on the year coming your way?
If you are up for the (easy) challenge, take a look at these 5 things you can do to refresh your home to enter into the new year!
1. Take care of your kitchen
If you take the time now to sharpen all of your knives and do a really good deep clean in your oven, microwave, floors, and everything else, it will make you feel fantastic starting off the new year.
2. Organize your closet
If you really want to spoil yourself, you can invest in new hangers for your wardrobe. Get all new ones that match to make your closet look amazing! You would be shocked at the difference it makes. Also, you should go through ALL of your clothes, and anything that you haven’t worn in the past year, you should think about donating.
3. Clean out your bathroom
Go through your shower and bathroom cabinet, and throw out all of the old expired products. If you haven’t used something in the past year, chances are you won’t use it at all. Take this time to give your bathroom the best cleaning that it deserves and maybe some new curtains!
4. Pamper your living room
Take all of your pillows and throw blankets and get them dry cleaned to give them the fresh start they deserve! Wipe down ALL of your furniture. Get rid of old magazines, books, DVDs, etc, and add new ones to your collection! You can even feel better by cleaning out the storage in your DVR!
5. Last (but definitely not least).. Your Bedroom
Clean out your bedside table drawers, clean off the tops of your bedside tables, and de-clutter them. This will make a huge difference in your bedroom and you will have more space to add new things, like books and magazines.
