Pat Starnes' Snippets: January 2011

New Years Resolution? Putting One's House In Order...

My 2011 New Years Resolution is the same this year as each preceding year--to put my house in order. I spent New Years Day dismembering the Christmas tree, sweeping out artificial pine needles, and organizing both my home's interior and my garage. Everything was neatly arranged in the new storage boxes and modular shelving I purchased for the garage. By the end of the day, Christmas boxes were stashed in the attic, and my entire home resembled a more respectable version of itself.Happy New Year!

Did you know  "getting organized" ranks #15 out of the Top 20 New Years Resolutions ever? I thought it would rank higher, but there were other resolutions (quit smoking, quit drinking, lose weight) that took priority. You can see where your New Years Resolution ranks here.

If you are selling your home this year, try to maintain a well-organized home. Your home will show better, it will appear to have plenty of storage, and you'll probably receive higher offers than a disorganized, cluttered home might receive.

And if by chance your New Years Resolution is to buy a new home in the Jackson metro area, (#8 on the list of Top 20 New Years Resolutions ever) I know someone who can help with that!

Happy New Year, everyone! And Happy New Year Active Rain!
