How long have you been putting off doing the things that you know you need to do, simply because you don’t want to do them? We bet the answer is a while, and we don’t blame you in the slightest. It’s hard when you’ve got kids to keep your house in order, and don’t listen to anyone on social media who says otherwise because they’re not telling the truth. If you don’t want to spend hours every day scrubbing floors, it’s a near impossible task. But, the time has come for you to face it, and get your home in order. So, let’s get started.
Let’s start with the maintenance side of things so that you can get all of this out of the way first. Get up on the roof and make sure that there is nothing wrong up there as your roof is the protector of your home. Even if you’re pretty sure it’s okay, just check anyway to be on the safe side. Fill those holes in the walls, fill up your dishwasher salt and rinse aid, go and check your boiler pressure, clear out your gutters, complete your hot tub maintenance if you’ve got one of these, weed the garden and all of these basic things that none of us want to do.
The fact that we don’t want to do them doesn’t mean that they don’t need doing unfortunately, so you’ve got to suck it up and get on with it. Nobody else is going to do it for you, so the quicker you start, the quicker you can finish.
Decluttering! Some people love it and some people hate it, and depending on how long you have let junk pile up in your home, it might be a big job. There are lots of different tips that people use when decluttering your home, but you’ve just got to go with what feels right for you. We did do a whole post on this, but it was still worth a mention in this one as it’s such an important part of the process! If you want more info here, you know what to do.
How long has it been since you redecorated your home? Have you ever redecorated your home? Well, the time has come! The world is your oyster, but that doesn’t mean that you should jump in without any sense of direction. You need to know what you want and what your endgame is going to be before you start making any actual changes. It might even be best to speak to an interior designer if you need help with this.
We know that doing all of these tasks seems like it’s going to take the rest of your life to achieve, but we promise you that this is not the case. As long as you are willing to dedicate your time to getting this stuff done, you will manage to get through your list faster than you would imagine. If you can get a little help along the way, then that’s going to be even better!
