The new year is just around the corner. It is the time for holiday parties and resolutions. Most years, you make a New Year's resolution to improve yourself. But in 2018 why not change things up just a little and resolve to improve your home? When the bell strikes 12, commit to making your home a better place to live with these five resolutions.
1. Resolve to Cut Your Home Bloat
It is impressive how fast objects can accumulate in your home. A quick look in your closets and drawers will reveal piles of things you haven't used in years, and honestly, forgot you ever owned. Take the time in 2018 to trim down your possessions, and you will discover how great eliminating excess junk can feel.
2. Resolve to Finish that DIY Project
There is a half-finished home improvement project in almost every home. Besides being an eyesore, stopping in the middle of a project is dangerous. Whether you ran out of money, time or motivation to finish, make 2018 the year you complete it. Set a budget and a timetable to get the job done.
3. Resolve to Clear the Air
You don't allow smoking in your home, why suffer from dust and allergens? The air quality inside most homes is worse than you may think. Pollutants in the air can cause headaches, sore throats, coughing and even life-threatening disorders. Protect your family by installing new air filters or buying free-standing air purifiers.
4. Resolve to Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
Saving the environment is an excellent idea for everyone, but when you protect the planet by reducing your energy use, it is great for your bank account as well. You can lower your monthly utility bills with a few small changes. Start by replacing any high-energy incandescent bulbs with more environmentally friend LED bulbs. You can also save more cash by turning down the furnace and putting on a sweater.
5. Resolve to Spend More Time with Your Friends and Family at Home
A house is only a home when you fill it with your friends and family. Next year, promise yourself you will devote more time to hanging out with the people you care most about. Forget sitting in front of the TV, do meaningful activities together which will help you connect with each other — maybe even a home improvement project?
