New Year, New Start: Resolutions for your New Home

We've only just seen in the New Year and we're already excited to see what 2016 has to offer! We think there's no better way to start off a brand new year than in a cosy new home.

We’ve only just seen in the New Year and we’re already excited to see what 2016 has to offer! We’ve already had so many people enquiring about many of our flats to rent in Sutton Coldfield, and we think there’s no better way to start off a brand new year than in a cosy new home.

Many of you will have already made new year’s resolutions for your lifestyle, but have you thought about creating resolutions to work towards with regards to your new homes? After all, there’s no better time to get yourself in a new routine than a new start!

Here are 3 easy to stick to resolutions for your new home this year!

Keep Clutter to a Minimum

Nothing says “new start” like clearing out all your unwanted clutter and junk. Even though many of us don’t like to admit how much stuff we hoard, every household is guilty of keeping items because they “might come in useful”.

Rather than haul all your items to your new home, have a good clear out before you pack. If you are already in your new property, make it a task to have a thorough clean out of each room each week on a rota to keep on top of any clutter that may build up.

Reduce Your Energy Bills

We could all use a little help now and again when it comes to saving money, so make it your resolution to reduce your energy bills by a certain amount, increasing the amount you aim to save each month.

Some great ways to start reducing those pesky bills include:

Turning lights off when you leave a roomUsing low energy lightbulbsUsing alternative ways to dry your clothes other than relying on the tumble dryer (hanging them up outside or in your home)Only do laundry when you have a full load

It might not seem like you are doing much, but you will be surprised at how quickly your bills will begin to drop once you start taking steps to cutting down on your energy use!

Start a Cleaning Routine

We’re all guilty of cutting corners when it comes to cleaning our homes, but if you start off your life in your new home with a cleaning routine, it’s much easier to stick to it.

Set yourself daily, weekly and monthly tasks to complete for each room in your home and couple it with your monthly sort out that we mentioned above to achieve the best cleaning schedule.

Daily tasks should be a priority, such as cleaning the dishes. No one wants to have to scrub week old food from their plates, so make sure that you are cleaning them as soon as you are done with them!

It’s also a great way to get the other people in your home involved. Not only will it make your job easier, it will help you tackle the whole house quicker too!

Moving into a new home is an exciting time for anyone, no matter what time of year it is, but starting your new home life off successfully is a great way to enjoy it even more!
