Just take a little advice: don’t add all of these into your daily routine all at once! Its a little much to get used to. Consider 1 to 3 “peak” areas that you’d really like to improve, perhaps where things take the most time, or you’d like things to look better when company comes over or maybe you just really don’t quite know what to do with that space. Tackle those first. Give them at least 2 weeks to settle in with not only you but your family as well. Then look to add even more smart ideas, as things can only get better!
We also have some terrific news for you – 99% of these hacks are super simple DIYs to do. So not only can you complete them in a weekend’s time but most likely in a few hours.
