I don’t know about you but there have a been a few stumbling blocks in my New Home Resolutions. I made a list of monthly resolutions to really get my home in order, please feel free to use the printable and ideas in this post to help you tackle your home too. I also have a giveaway which is easy to enter, the prize is £50 to spend at Wayfair.co.uk, towards your January home improvement project!
January for me is all about the hallway, lots of experts tell you to start here, make an entrance, get your home really working from the moment you step through the door, inspire yourself to continue every time you set foot in the house. Have you got a home improvement project on the go, or something you would like to tackle in January? Do come back and share it on Friday 30th January – in the comments, on twitter @pennyalexander_ or link up a blog post.
It’s logical starting in the hall, but my goodness it is hard!
The year always starts with such promise, my Monday was so productive and upbeat and then suddenly Tuesday threw a few curveballs and by Wednesday my home was in chaos. The hallway was back to its usual state as the dumping ground for anything and everything. Leaving for work and school was a complete scramble.
I have my eye on some products to change that, a stairway basket for starters. I am not sure this bargain of a hallway unit will fit but having a basket for each member of the family to stash things is a great start. I want some storage to hide our paperwork and bits and pieces in, which can be easily picked up and carried around the house as we sort them!
I also have an idea for a theme, our hallway is our launch pad to new adventures and journeys so I want to play on maps and travel. I have some great craft ideas on that to share.
I guess all that is missing is the actual tidying up and sorting routines. I promised to scour the web for some great tips and share those later in the month with some images of the new space. I made a little start, and I found some great tips – there is hope!
I have a £50 to spend at WAyfair.co.uk to kick start your home improvements this year. Simply follow the rafflecopter!
