Every new year is filled with hope, excitement and... anxiety? Yep, New Year's day is the time to face our New Year's Resolutions. The good news is that resolutions don't have to be something to stress about. If you're prepared for a personal change, the better chance you have at success. Custom closets and home closet organizers, while not the first thing to come to mind on New Year's Day, are a great way to equip yourself for a resolution and keep up with it all year long.
Start the new year off right! Learn how home closet organizers can help with these 4 New Year's Resolutions, then sign up to win a $50 StacksandStacks.com gift certificate!
1. Get Fit/Healthy
Getting fit and losing weight are tops on most New Year's Resolution lists, but how can home closet organizers help that? It's simple; using a home closet organizer of any kind, modular closet organizers, custom closets or even simple shelving can keep you organized and motivated. Use a section of your closet system or some closet accessories for workout clothing. Make it accessible so you can see them as soon as you walk in the closet as a reminder to exercise. Stacks and Stacks has multiple home closet organizers that can help to separate out your gym or work out clothing.
What I plan to do: Keep my jogging shoes, workout shirts and sweat pants in the middle of my reach-in closet on this hanging closet organizer so that I see them right when I open the closet doors. Take a look; there's cubbies for your shoes and sweats on this closet accessory - just what I need!
Eeeeeek! The cumulative stress from the year and holidays has taken a bit of a toll; if only we mastered stress management for our last New Year's Resolution. Hmmm. Regardless, you know what cuts out stress? When things you do everyday are easy. Things like putting up the laundry, keeping the closet organized and knowing where everything is. Having home closet organizers from Stacks and Stacks helps reduce stress by making your everyday routines easier and less complicated. Even adding this small wall organizer to the laundry room can help by organizing clothing, detergent, cleaners, ironing accessories and hangers.
What I plan to do: Install a double hanging rod for the closet. I'll keep his and hers clothes on separate sides and designate a place for each closet storage item. When we get our new washer and dryer, I also want to see if I have the space for the Laundry Butler from Stacks And Stacks - I think it will help a lot!
3. Volunteer/Help Others
Many people have very busy lives and realistically cannot volunteer often or at all. Home closet organizers can help you give back to the community through donation. Closet systems, by design, prompt regular closet purging and cleanings, so it's easy to recognize items no longer needed and can mark them for donation. Donating only takes a few minutes and while you're there you can inquire about volunteer opportunities. For more information about donating check out Goodwill's Donate Movement!
What I plan to do: I have already donated to Goodwill in the last month, but I am getting a closet storage box that will become the designated bin to place items for donation throughout the year. I will donate the clothes or items every time it gets full.
Getting organized has to start somewhere; there must be a foundation to begin from and home closet organizers can provide this. Imagine being more organized in all of your day to day routines around the house. Closet organization can create better habits and a love of organization (once you see the benefits) that can spread to other aspects of your life like your work, friends, shopping and travel. And, once you get your closet organization under control, Stacks And Stacks has products for other areas of your home. Your garage, bedroom, office, kitchen and bathroom can benefit from organization too.
What I plan to do: We've recently moved into a new home and my closet is not setup yet. I plan to organize the closet and pantry with various closet accessories to help maintain and organize items I use everyday. I hope to install wooden home closet organizers or systems from Stacks and Stacks as soon as my schedule gets a little less hectic, and I can't wait.
