Today’s Resolution: Go from Rags to Riches and an Empty Closet

Today's Resolution: Rags to Riches

Got old stuff? Concentrate on donating, selling, or purging things today. Donate no longer needed and gently worn clothes to local charities for the benefit of others. Sell items through a yard sale or donate them to others holding a yard sale. Even if you throw things away, you will always come out ahead either with some extra cash in your pocket or newfound space!

Today’s Resolution: Collect Collectibles

For some people it might be coins, and for others it might be teapots. If you have some type of “collection,” re-examine what you have and find a spot to display it for others to see. If you currently have it out in the open, investigate the possibility of adding to your collection. Check popular websites like eBay or Craig’s list and others. Anything rare in your collection? Find some price lists or comparative items for sale. You may have your hands on a very collectible collectible!

Today’s Resolution: Turn the Tables

Today's Resolution: Turn the Tables

Need a change in scenery? You don’t even have to leave your home. Try rearranging a piece of furniture or two for a different perspective.  Move a sofa, change the direction of your bed, or relocate some lamps. It won’t take much movement to give your place a fresh look. Caution: This may require a little cleaning too if you have not vacuumed under the sofa in a while!

Today’s Resolution: Simmer Sweet Smells

Creating a subtle scent in your home can be as close as your lunch. Save orange rinds and apple skins, and place in a plastic bag in your refrigerator. When you have enough to cover the bottom of a small saucepan, add water, cinnamon sticks and simmer for an aromatic scent. Experiment with different fruits and spices. If all else fails, bake some chocolate chip cookies!

Today’s Resolution: Reach for the Stars (or Your Toes!)

Even if you can’t exercise each day, a good stretch will go a long way. Spend 2-3 minutes at various points during the day to stretch those muscles. If you are sitting at a desk, raise your hands above your head and reach as high as you can. Lift both legs and flex your toes. Hold that position for 30 seconds and relax. Try rotating wrists and ankles periodically. Standing? See if you can touch your toes or place the palms of your hands on the ground with straight legs. Try to make progress with flexibility each day.
