  1. Get rid of old stuff

You may not want to wait for spring before you do some decluttering. Now’s the best time to give away your old stuff to make way for the new stuff! Let your home breathe. Don’t suffocate it with too much stuff. Remember external order and cleanliness can impact and improve your internal disposition as well. You get double benefits!

  1. Do general cleaning

Again, no need to wait for spring-cleaning to get your home in order. Right after you get rid of all your trash and all those old stuff, start your general cleaning at once. With less stuff, you will be able to clean more thoroughly. Plus the momentum and inertia you started by decluttering will help carry you through the cleaning process.

  1. Invest in little things that make a big difference

Spend a little on inexpensive lighting fixtures. You can exchange some white light bulbs into warm LED lights to make living spaces more cozy and comfortable. But try to buy higher wattage white light bulbs for darker rooms like attics and basements to make it appear larger. You can buy other little stuff like new doorknobs, cabinet handlebars, switches, hooks, picture frames etc.

You don’t have to spend thousands of dollars to have a more beautiful home for the New Year. With these little tips, you not only improve your home but also save some extra cash that you can use to invest in other interesting projects.
