January Cure 2016 – Assignment 2

One Hour to a Better Home

Make a list of projects

Set aside an hour or so to do a walkthrough of your home and write down any trouble spots as you move through each room. It’s easiest to organize your list by room – you’ll want sections for all the important areas of your own home, i.e. the entryway, living room, bathroom, bedroom and kitchen. Start at the front door and do a thorough “inspection”, noting each area or item that needs a good cleaning, a de-cluttering or a re-organization. When your tour is complete, grab a highlighter and select a few (3 – 5 is ideal) key areas from each room that you plan to focus on – the spots that will make the biggest impact on the look and use of the room as a whole when they are improved.

Oh I remember this from last year! I’m not going to look at my old list yet! I’m going to do a 2016 list and then see how identical it is to the old one. Because I’m sure that even if I managed to mark anything off, by now it’s become an issue again. That’s just how we roll.
