New Year’s Organization Ideas

New Year’s Organization Ideas

Spring cleaning isn’t the only time to really get your house in order. New Years is just around the corner, and it’s the start of the new year. Why not get your house squeaky clean and take care of all of those things on your to-do list?

There are quite a number of great ideas that homeowners can tackle. From your child’s room down to the bathroom, everything can be easily fixed and organized to create a beautiful, organized home.

On the inside, many interior designers believe that it’s time to embrace minimalism. Get rid of all the useless things that make your home a clutter. Focus on getting your home more breathing space which will in turn help you and your family live a little lighter. Trust me, less is more.

Once you de-clutter and sell or donate all of your space eaters, now is the time to go green and save money. Go through your house and install energy saving light bulbs. An ENERGY STAR qualified fluorescent light bulb can save money and reduce your electricity bill. They cost a little more, but by gradually making the switch your house becomes more energy efficient.

If you’re feeling confident, why not give your home a fresh coat of paint. It can do wonders for the look and value of your home.

Installing programmable digital thermostats is also a green way to save energy, especially when you’re not home! By replacing your thermostats with programmable models, you can save on heat and improve your homes energy efficiency.

Ok, if you de-cluttered your house by throwing everything down in the basement, consider yourself busted! For most of us, cleaning these areas will be major New Year’s home improvement resolutions. Clean storage spaces mean fewer pests and fewer hazards. Plus, if your basement is finished, a clean, tidy basement means more living space for you! Good luck!
