Life gets busy, complicated and hectic. In this New Year let’s all make a resolution to slow down and make our lives simpler. Let’s create a little change in our homes without spending a lot of time and money. Shea Homes® put together a few ideas to help you simplify and perhaps create something new and different for your home (and for you) in 2018.
Rearrange Your Living Room
Has your furniture been placed in the same way for years? Moving your furniture around could make your living room or any room in your house feel like a brand new space in your home.
Use the “Fancy’ Dishes
Let’s get crazy this 2018! We all have that dishware we store in a box or somewhere up high all year long for special occasions, only touching the table a few times a year. Why not use that “special” dishware that makes you so happy? Do it for you!
Make your Bed
There are actual studies proving that making your bed every morning can make you happier. Establishing a routine every morning by waking up and making your bed will make the overall room look more put together, and will also have you starting your day off by being productive, and efficient!
Start a Donation Box
After the holidays we always find ourselves with more than we had before. Instead of wasting a day cleaning out each room, make it a quick hour clean up with everyone designated to a room. If you forgot you had it, donate it! After you do one New Year sweep of the house, keep the tradition of donating alive by having a donate box that everyone at home can utilize all year long.
Separate with Baskets
No one enjoys separating out their own dirty clothes from lights, darks, and hand wash -- much less their entire family’s laundry. Let’s skip a step this year by having a separate basket for each load of wash, or buying a sorting hamper with multiple compartments. Make each person responsible for separating their own clothes and make laundry a quick 1, 2, 3!
