Mustering up the energy to tackle daunting household chores and responsibilities that need to get done can definitely be a struggle.
But have no fear, we pulled together some tasks that should get done at least once a year, so after you’re done reading you can check these off your home to-do list for 2021.
Out with the old, and with the new! Since your family will probably be getting a lot of new items via holiday gifts this season, doing some general cleanouts of closets, garages, etc. is probably long overdue.
These are tasks that people tend to put off more than others, so make sure to take a few moments to check for outdoor pipes that are leaking, clear any debris from the gutters, put away any garden tools, etc. Houses in Kaua’i can surely go for some seasonal maintenance due to the large amount of rain we tend to see in the winter.
Check Your Detectors
This is a great time to check that your smoke and CO detectors are all working properly. Change batteries if needed and be aware of expiration dates – smoke detectors are typically good for 10 years, and CO detectors last for about six years.
Clean Out Your Refrigerator
There’s no doubt that the holiday season probably brings more food into your kitchen than any other time of the year. From November until the end of December, your refrigerator can be packed with holiday favorites. So going through and emptying out things that might’ve gone bad or just need to be thrown away or donated, can give you a great, fresh start going into 2022.
Make New Year’s Resolutions
Whether it's household-related or not, New Year’s Resolutions are always a fun, healthy project to do. This may also be a good time to think about your home and whether you’re in the place you want to be. Maybe you want to go down the path of “New Year, New Home”?
BOTTOM LINE: Since 2021 is zooming by so quickly, it’s essential we don’t forget to do our household due diligence. Keeping up with your home creates a clean space and a clean mind.
