2017 is in the rearview mirror and it’s time to start thinking about how we’re going to approach 2018. Setting New Year’s resolutions is a great way to hold yourself accountable and stick to changes in your life, and while you can make large resolutions like finding a new job or moving to a different state, it’s also a great idea to stick to smaller, easier to accomplish ones. 2018 is the perfect year to tackle how you take care of your apartment and try to set some new standards!
It can be hard to remember to do chores like mopping or vacuuming if you don’t set it in stone. Keep a whiteboard and write down days of the week where you’ll get certain tasks done to keep your home in good condition. Your schedules don’t just have to be for chores though—develop meal plans so you always know what you will come home and cook in your apartment. It’s also a great idea to keep a calendar for dinner parties with family and friends!
There’s no better way to make your apartment feel refreshed and ready for the New Year than by getting rid of all the clutter. Consider it a fresh start! Especially during the holidays, we have a tendency to accumulate a bunch of junk that we don’t really need sitting around. Go through your apartment room-by-room and get to sorting it all out.
It’s time to go green in 2018! This doesn’t have to be as difficult as it may seem. Try to be conscious of turning lights off whenever you leave your apartment. If you’re going to be gone for an extended period of time, go through your home and turn off all the power strips as well. Set reasonable, achievable goals regarding your heating and cooling usage too.
Recreate Your Space
If you want your home to feel like a different space without busting the bank on new furniture, try rearranging your furniture in new and creative ways. Wall art is also a great way to change up the look of an apartment.
