Daily Resolution: Rejoice! Re-Gift!

Inevitably there are things you will receive for the holiday season that you do not need or do not care for. Before it sits in a drawer or a closet, immediately re-gift it to someone who may appreciate it. Try a gift trade with a friend or family member who also has items to unload. Donate items to a charitable organization. Simple items can go a long way for someone in need or add a special touch to someone’s life. Rejoice in the power of re-gifting. How many Starbuck’s gift cards do you really need?

Daily Resolution: Boxing Day

Examine the leftover boxes you have handing around, and before you throw them away, consider recycling or re-using them. Sort them by intended purpose: sturdy corrugated ones make great mailers, shirt boxes for last minute needs, or bags for baked goods the next season. If a recent holiday or birthday has passed, sometimes even wrapping paper can be salvaged for smaller gifts to be wrapped next year. Be sure to remove any labels or gift tags before re-using!

Daily Resolution: Open Your Heart

Set your worries aside. Count your blessings. Think only positive thoughts. Sing a song. Smile often. Enjoy the company of others, but appreciate time for yourself. Eat something sweet. Tell people you love them. Do a good deed. Reflect. Make a wish. Be at peace.

Daily Resolution: Refinish Something

One of the greatest joys in the life of an old piece of furniture is being spray painted. Seriously, nobody wants to be a boring shade of brown or white their whole life, right? Look up some YouTube videos on how to refinish furniture and pick an old piece of furniture that could use some touching up. Bonus points for choosing a vibrant color, like yellow!

Daily Resolution: Plan a Sports-Themed Party

Bowl Games Mania (football) strikes many households in December and January,  and it is a good idea to not only have plenty of snacks on hand, but bowls to put them in. Take a few with you if someone else is hosting the party. Many economical retail stores have decorative and colorful plastic bowls sold in multi-packs for just a few dollars. They are easy to clean and can be used again for the next bowl game!
