It is common for people to choose New Year’s resolutions to improve health and wellness. Have you also thought about goals to keep your home clean and organized this year? January is a fresh start and the perfect opportunity to implement these new changes for your family. Here are a few resolutions to will improve the comfort and function of your home:

  • Clean the Kitchen Pantry, Fridge, and Cupboards: Get rid of expired and stale food and restock with healthy alternatives. There’s no reason to hang onto the Christmas treats or other random leftovers that collected during the holiday season. Throw out the half-used jar of cranberry sauce and fruitcake that no one is going to eat.
  • Deep Clean the Floors: Dirt and grime build up on the floors over time. Even if you are consistent with a regular mopping schedule, it can be beneficial to hire professional cleaners to help with the carpets and tile.
  • Organize Storage Closets: Dedicate an afternoon to go through the storage closets. Get rid of anything that wasn’t used the previous year. Invest in quality storage containers and label these boxes, so you know where to find the items when they are needed.
  • Sort Through the Paperwork: Everyone has a stack of paperwork that piles up over time. Go through the pile – shred the junk mail, deal with urgent matters, pay the bills, and file the paperwork that needs to be kept. Stay consistent with a regular routine so the paperwork doesn’t stack up again in the future.
  • Create a Laundry System: Piles of dirty clothes seem to never go away. Create a good system that works around your schedule so that you always have clean clothes available when they are needed.

The key to maintaining a clean house is to handle the small daily tasks, such as wiping the counters and washing the dishes. Then, make sure that you keep up with deep cleaning on a regular basis.
