54 Make your bed every day. This small initiative might just give you the right amount of spring in your step to get through the day.
55 Do the laundry when the hamper is full. This sounds obvious but life's daily obligations often get in the way. An easy way to achieve this is to use a small hamper. Laundry isn't as daunting when you're not faced with 10 loads of it!
56 Remove anything that doesn't lend itself to a calm and tranquil environment. This includes kids' toys and your work laptop!
57 Go through your closet and drawers. Get rid of any clothes and accessories you don't need or use. Women's business attire can be donated to companies like Dress for Success that provide business appropriate clothing to deserving women who are entering the workforce.
58 Don't invite dust mites to sleep with you. Change your bedding weekly. Dust mites feast on dead skin cells, which we shed while we sleep. Slipping on new sheets every week is an easy way to minimize the risk of dust mites.
59 Revisit old memorabilia. This includes ticket stubs, baseball cards, programs from musicals, children's art and maybe a letter from a past love. Ask yourself if you really need and love these items. If the answer is no, then ditch it before you have the chance to change your mind.
60 Consider painting the room a different colour. Admittedly, this requires some planning as well as elbow grease. But it's also the simplest way to make a remarkable change in your surroundings.
61 Update your bedroom accessories. If you're not quite ready for an all-out makeover, try replacing some small pieces like lamps, throw pillows or wall hooks. This is an easy way to make your bedroom feel like new!
62 Update art and framed pictures. Enlarge some recent pictures and display them. If you've got a box brimming with your child's art, pick one you like and show it off.
63 Get rid of clutter. Look through your room and spot the clutter hot spots. Have you got piles of paper on every flat surface? Employ a paper tray to keep your mess in one place. When it's full, it's time to file! If you're tripping on piles of clothes on the floor, you should consider installing hooks for clothes that are not quite laundry-ready. Over-the-door hooks are the perfect solution.
64 Take stock of what's stored under beds and get rid of anything you don't need or love.
65 Extend the life of your mattress and flip it every three months. This encourages even wear on both sides.
66 Vacuum your mattress regularly. This helps keep dust mites and other allergens out of your bed while keeping your air clean.
67 Organize the clothing in your closet by colour. You'll find it a lot easier to find things when you're short on time.
68 Seasonal bedding should be laundered then stored in protective cases. Find a cool and dry space to store them to prevent mildew. Storing them under your bed is a good option to free up some space in your linen closet.
69 Underneath the bed is a haven for dust. Remove the mattress and box spring then dust and vacuum under the bed frame.
70 Buy new duvet covers: one for spring/summer and one for fall/winter. A change of season warrants a change in decor!
