Well, get ready, because that’s about to change. To help transform that frame of mind, here are 5 quick tasks to get you going and nurture that feeling of self-accomplishment in no time!
1. Organize Your Kitchen And Bathroom Drawers And Cabinets
For the kitchen, begin by sorting out your mail/junk drawer, and shred any papers, letters, and receipts you no longer need. Look through all other drawers to organize similar things like silverware, take-out menus, or stationary. For your bathroom or vanity, go through your makeup drawer and beauty cabinets to toss out anything old and expired, swatch your makeup to decide whether or not you want to keep something, and bring in some organizers to make everything nice and neat.
2. Deep Clean Your Bathroom And Kitchen
It’s been ingrained in our minds how important it is these days to keep sanitizing and disinfecting our homes, but you should definitely take the time to move beyond that and dive in deeper. Get into all those spots you’ve been pretending are fine: Scrub down your shower, tub, bathroom, and kitchen sinks, drains, toilets, cabinets, and kitchen appliances. Toss those bath and kitchen mats into the washer, shiny up those wood floors, and top it all off with a nice vacuuming.
3. Start An Herb Garden
Many grocery stores and hardware stores sell herb seeds and small plants that can quickly blossom and thrive—or you can also order them online. Whether it be a good chunk of square footage in your yard, a nice section on your balcony, or even a collection of small pots on your windowsill, there are tons of ways to get fresh herbs growing in and around your home.
4. Give Your Outerwear Some Love
Outerwear truly goes through some of the toughest times. Take some extra time to lay out all of your wool coats and puffers, lint roll, and freshen them up with some fabric spray. Give your shoes some love by polishing them and thoroughly scrubbing out the muddied bits.
5. Treat Fido To A Spa Day
Got mounds of fur flying all around your home? That’s a clear sign that it’s time to give your dog a grooming. Depending on your pooch’s personality, to them, this might come as either a pampering and luxurious experience, the most mundane thing in the world, or a chance to make you their worst enemy. Whatever it is, your pups can get a bit of a glam session at home since a groomer can sometimes get pricey. Clip their little nails, give them a subtle trim to freshen up their coat, wash them with some sudsy shampoo and conditioner, and top it off with a nice blow-dry. They’ll be wagging their tails again in no time.
