Jamming more clothes in your closet
This is the perfect time of year to clean out your closet.
Not only will it make room for any gifts you may get, but many charities are holding holiday donation drives, making it as easy as dropping the bag off at your office, school, or community centre.
Get rid of anything out of style, that doesn’t fit, is stained or worn out, or that you just don’t wear for whatever reason.
Then, you can start the new year with a fresh, new style, knowing that the only things in your closet are things you truly love.
Letting your gym membership lapse
Your New Year’s resolution to exercise more will be only as good as the preparations you make now.
You’ll be so much more likely to stick with a new fitness routine if you make sure you have all the equipment, supplies, clothing and classes set up in advance.
Then, come January 1, you can tie on your shoes and head straight into the gym without getting derailed by little details.
Or, for a head start, hit the gym now and get a leg up on everyone starting in January.
Living with a mouldy fridge
Which sounds more appetizsing: rummaging through a smelly fridge for something to cook or grabbing takeout for dinner? Skip the angst and set yourself up to save money and kilojoules by readying your fridge to be stocked with healthy staples.
At best, you’ll start off your diet resolutions on the right foot.
At worst, you have a nice, clean fridge to store the takeout containers in.
