Saving Space in 2017

With the New Year quickly approaching, it’s time to think of some resolutions to benefit your life in 2017. With only 8 in 100 people managing to achieve their New Year resolutions, many people need all the help they can get! Though we can’t help you reach your goal weight or stop you from eating chocolate, we can help you keep your home as tidy and mess free as possible throughout 2017 and beyond.

Set Goals

To achieve a New Year resolution, it needs to have an obvious and clear goal with a realistic deadline. If your resolution is to simply ‘tidy home’, it’s unlikely it will ever be achieved. Instead, make your resolution to ‘tidy living room thoroughly by end of April’. Shorter, to the point and more attainable resolutions are easier to achieve in the long run.

Realistically Speaking

Though you may want your home to look like the sparkling showrooms you see in shops, it’s simply not realistic to get your home looking just like one. Unless you have the money to completely revamp your home, taking the time to remove the things from your home that you don’t need is a great way to free up space and give your home a fresh, new feel.


There are a range of fantastic books and blogs available in stores and on the internet that can keep your home tidying skills in check. These are great to read if you’re ever feeling disheartened on your 2017 resolution journey; ideal for a pick me up to get back into the swing of things! Don’t forget to keep an eye on our past and future blogs for some tips and tricks, too.

Be Easy

Many people fail to stick to their New Year resolutions as they act like they are the only thing that matters. Whilst throughout January the resolutions may stick, as February hits our old habits begin to quickly return. Instead of spending all your free time tidying your home and removing mess, dedicate time each Friday or at the weekend. Though it may take a longer period of time to achieve your resolution in full, it will make it much easier and attainable.


If you’re beginning to struggle with keeping your resolution, try not to become disheartened. Instead, try to think of all the benefits your efforts will equal, whether this be the extra space in your home, the money from selling unwanted things or simply the feeling you’ll get from a tidy home and a succeeded New Year resolution.
