Open House: New Year's Resolutions For Your Home

Open House: New Year's Resolutions For Your Home

In her book Speed Decorating, professional stager Jill Vegas recommended making a house rule not to leave shoes laying around. This guideline in particular would never fly in my pad — although it makes sense for people showing their home to potential buyers — but it got me thinking about what resolutions I want to make around my home this year.

One thing I always return to is being better about turning the lights out when I leave the room. I also always struggle with getting my laundry done before it's crunch time. How about you? What resolutions do you have for your household in 2010? Tell me by commenting below!

I made a list the other night. I'm hoping to stick with it. I too want to clean out my garage. It hasn't been a month yet but if it sits any longer it wont get done, I know it. Another is to stay on top. Whether its the cleaning, the bills, the maintenance, I want to stay on top of it all. I think that will help me to have a better home in general.

Finally unpacking all the rest of the boxes we have in the garage and office since we moved in. It will be two years in March. I just gotta do it.

My major goal for this year is to be ruthless about purging the house of excess. From furniture to dishes to linens I am hoping to rid the house of at least 50%.
