The first way to prepare your home for the new year is to clean your home. Visit every room and clean the windows, mirrors, end tables, book shelves and other surfaces. Vacuum your carpet and sweep your floors. Throw away trash and put everything back in its place.
Another way to prepare your home for the new year is to organize your desk and paperwork. Store any important documents in its appropriate folder. Throw away junk mail, check your email and get all your business up to date.
Go through your wardrobe and get rid of any clothes you didn’t wear at least once this year. Donate them to your local thrift store, shelter, salvation army, or close friend. If your items are in really good condition you may be able to turn them into cash. You can sell them to a consignment shop or through sites like Depop, Poshmark and Facebook marketplace are where you can list your items right away for little or no cost at all.
The most rewarding way to prepare your home for the new year is to add some fresh scents. You can buy a new candle, light some incents or use aroma therapy oils. Some of my favorites scents include eucalyptus, lavender and fresh linen scent. Find some comforting scents that you enjoy and set the mood. Your home deserves to feel as special as you are.
