New Years Resolutions For Your Home


Everyone is familiar with the annual tradition of making New Years resolutions, and the struggle to maintain them. Everyone wants to workout more, eat less, and spend more time with family and friends. However, most people neglect to think about their home in the coming year. Luckily, we’ve come up with 4 foolproof resolutions for your Millville By The Sea home that will have it looking great in 2016!

Yard Work

It’s easy to take pride in your home when you live at Millville by the Sea, but sometimes, simple yard work can be a daunting task. Take an afternoon to rake leaves, or trim back any tree branches that are overgrown. For those cold winter days, you can even plan out a garden or flowerbed for when the warm weather returns.

Home Exterior

Did you get a chance to drive through Millville by the Sea this holiday season and see all of the lights and decorations? In the New Year, you can leave your lights up for a while longer, or start preparing for spring. If the winter weather has been harsh on your home’s exteriors, you can always give them a good refresh by washing them when spring rolls around. Also, changing your light bulbs (both inside and out) after the first of the year is a good way to remind yourself of when they need to be changed.

Organize the Garage

All of the new homes at Millville By The Sea come with a 2-car garage — perfect for storing vehicles and other items. Having a garage is great, but clutter can quickly accumulate in your garage if you let things pile up. Start 2016 off on the right foot by organizing your garage for the coming year. Make things easy to locate by grouping them by season, such as keeping beach chairs and pool floats together. Organize any miscellaneous odds and ends by putting them in labeled bins.

Closet Cleanout

With ample closet space in your Christopher Companies or Miller and Smith home, it’s easy to find yourself buried in a mountain of clothing and shoes. January is a great time to clean out your closet and get rid of anything you haven’t worn in the last year. Winter is also the time to donate any old coats or warm clothing to people who are in need this season. Find a drop off location near you for any clothing items that you would like to donate.
