It is now December, which means 2015 is coming to a close! With the new year we all make resolutions to ourselves about what we want to accomplish. We all make goals for ourselves, such as lose weight or save money, but what resolutions are you making for your home? Here are some resolutions you may want to add to your 2016 list!
- Decrease your bills! “Going Green” can seem like an overwhelming task to accomplish from solar panels to hybrid cars, but there are simpler things you can take care of in your home that will make your home greener and save you money in the process. Small steps such as switching off the lights when you leave a room, not running the laundry until it is full, and watering your yard a little less are all things that add up to making a difference.
- Set a cleaning schedule. Having a set day when you clean the bathroom or the kitchen can hold yourself more accountable for keeping a tidy home. Don’t forget to enlist the help of your family on this one!
- Take care of those small home improvements you have been putting off. A lot of home improvement issues, such as a drafty door, can be solved by dedicating some DIY time.
- Make an extra mortgage payment! While an extra payment can be tough, The more payments you make in a shorter period of time, the less you end up paying in the long term. Making extra payments here and there can dramatically shorten the time till your mortgage is paid off.
Making a list of things to take care of in your home will motivate you to check them off! Whatever your resolutions may be, the Great Florida Homes Team is wishing you a happy and healthy new year in 2016!
