DealDash Organizes in January

It’s official! The holidays are over and it’s time to clean up. Here are some cleaning suggestions from DealDash.

Everyone knows about spring cleaning, but a thorough cleaning in January just might be even more important. Your house is cluttered with old toys, new gifts, decorations, and more food than you can handle. Read these ideas from DealDash and then get started.

Put Away the Tree and Decorations

Start your new year by taking down the decorations from Christmas and trying to find their place. It’s amazing how much more space you’ll have when the decorations are put away. Next, look at downsizing a bit. You can throw away those decorations that are worn out.

Also, you should look at getting rid of some of your children’s toys, and you should consider getting rid of some of your own toys as well. We all have those clothes, toys, or knickknacks that have seen better days. Consider donating the older stuff now that you have something new. I like to use the “1 in 1 out” rule at my house, and it can be a bit overwhelming with 3 kids and a giant pile of new toys and clothing.

Solutions for Cords and Cables

Consider having a set box for certain things. In our house, we have a box of a/v cords that we keep on hand. There may more than we need, but you never know when the cable you’re using will short out. Whether it’s your excess wrapping supplies, cords, or batteries, you can find a space to save them for the future without cluttering up the house. You can also pick a drawer in the kitchen, get a cutlery separator for it, and store your cords in the different sections.

Shampoo the Carpets and Clean the Vents

As we’ve been hosting Christmas over the years, we’ve found that January is the perfect time to shampoo the carpets. We opted to buy a shampooer, but you may prefer to just rent one. Either way, there’s something almost therapeutic about watching the dirt slowly disappear from your carpet. As a result, the sense of pride and accomplishment as you see your carpet return back to its original color is amazing.

Also, if you’re willing to do the deep cleaning, consider your vents and filters. It’s not something that most people think about, but your air filters typically last about 3 months. The New Year is a good time to double-check how well your filters are holding up. While you’re at it, consider the filters in your fridge and checking the batteries in your smoke detector.

DealDash Looks Forward to January

DealDash January

T.S. Eliot is known to have said that “April is the cruelest month.” Though some people would argue that it’s January. Let’s think of some things to look forward to in January.

“What’s good about January?” You might ask. Well, aside from celebrating a fine new year, there are many nice things about January. Many amazing people were born in January, including Paul Revere, Joan of Arc, Nicholas Cage, Edger Allen Poe, and my very own little baby, who turns 1 year old this January!

In addition to some amazing people being born in January, there is also the mild feeling of relief that all of the holiday preparations. Decorating and shopping are behind us again for another 10 months or so. Most people love the holidays, but also love them when they are over as well!

Now that it’s the beginning of the year again, we can all start with a fresh, clean slate ahead of us. Now is a great time of year to let go of all of the small grudges or bad feelings that you might have. You can try to mend fences with anyone that you are on “the outs” with, and hopefully forgive and forget.

Thinking positively…

Speaking of thinking positively here is a very cool idea that I read about a while back –  Someone suggested taking an empty jar and labeling it ‘Good Things’. Every time something good happens over the upcoming year, you stick a note into the jar as a reminder of happiness. Then, on New Year’s Eve, December 31st, you open the jar and look back on all the good things that have happened over the year. Isn’t that a cute idea? You could do this yourself, or have the whole family join in for more fun.

Finally, January is great for staying in, cuddling, watching movies, and drinking hot cocoa. In the summer I feel a little guilty when I keep the kids indoors since running and playing outside is so healthy for them. However, I don’t feel a single shred of guilt keeping them inside in the warmth when it’s so cold and yucky outside. For me, the best part of January is not having to go out in January weather!
