New Year, New Life: Kitchen and Home Organization Resolutions
Posted on 30 December 2016
As the new year quickly approaches, it’s time to start thinking about your resolutions. Using the motto “New Year, New Life,” we’ve created some simple and quick kitchen and home organization resolutions that anyone can tackle and keep throughout the year that follows.
New Year, New Life for the Kitchen
Clean Out Your Pantry
Cleaning out your pantry is the first step of any organization plan for the new year. New life is easy enough to breathe into your cupboards, just by eliminating expired, old and unwanted items. You can even donate your non-perishable items to a local food bank or shelter. Clearing out old items will help you determine how much available space you actually have and then how to fill it in the most efficient way.
Organize Your Freezer
The next thing you should in the new year is clean out and organize your freezer. Often we package up our leftovers and toss them in the freezer, never to give them a second thought until they come tumbling out when we open the door because there simply is not enough room. You can organize your freezer a few different ways but the one habit you should get into is properly labeling your items with the date and contents. This will help you later on when determining how old something is or whether or not you should keep it.
Replace Your Kitchen Mat
Your new year, new life should include updating your old kitchen mat. Add a WellnessMat to your kitchen and cushion your joints while you make dinner, prepare lunches or chat with your friends. The best part is that once you invest in a WellnessMat, you won't need to replace it given the high-quality materials and 20-year Manufacturer's Warranty. Replacing your kitchen mat when it gets worn is a good way to prevent joint fatigue and keep things comfortable.
New Year, New Life for the Home
Just like cleaning out your pantry, you should also clean out and declutter other areas of your home. New year, new life means eliminating anything you don’t need or can’t use anymore. These items are perfect for donations to thrift stores or local groups. Decluttering will give you more free space and help you further organize your home.
Of the items you choose to keep in your home, sort them so that you can access them easily, readily have them in the same area or keep frequently used items within arm’s reach. Having a place for everything and everything in its place is a good methodology for keeping your home clean and clutter-free. Periodically re-sort and sort your home to keep things neat and organized.
Immediately Put Away
Once you’re done with an item, put it away. Don’t leave it out on the counter or shuffle it into a pile of things to put away later. Simply put it away. You won’t have to return to it and it will already be out of the way. This last point on our list of new year, new life organization tips takes the least amount of time and can make the biggest difference.
These are great, simple ways to stay organized for the new year. New life for your home and kitchen are right around the corner!
