2018 is your (home’s) year! Your home is a critical part of your life and shouldn’t go overlooked when creating goals for the new year. Here are a few more things to add to your New Year’s resolution list this year.
It probably comes as no surprise that you’ve acquired quite a lot of stuff throughout 2017. Don’t let all the unnecessary things follow you into this new year. Take a weekend to tackle all the cleaning, clearing, and organizing your home needs.
Improve Safety Features
No one should feel unprotected in their own home. Since you spend so much time at home, make sure you and your family aren’t at risk. Check all the locks on your doors and windows. Also make sure your fire alarm and carbon monoxide detectors are working properly — many homeowners forget to replace the batteries.
Reduce Energy Consumption
Did you use to moan and groan when you received your monthly utility bill last year? Make 2018 a year of savings by making simple changes around the house. Shut off the lights when you leave the room, turn off power strips when you aren’t using appliances, and keep your heat as low as possible when you aren’t home or when you’re sleeping.
Last, but certainly not least, make a goal to keep up with the exterior of your home! Looking to undergo some home improvement projects this year?
