12 Things You Should Do At Least Once A Year

6. Get Your Home Serviced

These are jobs that often require the help of a professional, and despite what you might think, you do need to get everything in your home serviced once a year. Your air conditioner might be running just fine, but if you put off servicing it for too long, small issues may become irreparable. Similarly, you should get your furnace, roof, gas appliances, and pipes maintenance. You should also have your home inspected for termites – that’s one thing you definitely don’t want to deal with!

7. Maintenance of Outdoor Spaces

Mind your gaps! Time and natural elements can cause the quality of your outdoor spaces to deteriorate. Reseal your decks or outdoor woodwork to ensure that the raw materials are protected, which helps them look and function better over a longer period of time. You’ll also need to pay attention to your driveway pavement, especially in snowy seasons, regardless of whether they are asphalt or concrete.

8. Spring Cleaning

Although it’s called “spring” cleaning, it can really be any time of the year. Over time, our possessions can keep increasing and before you know, your house looks like an episode of hoarders. Pick a time every year to go through all your belongings and get rid of everything that is no longer necessary.

Clothes that you’ve outgrown/gone out of fashion, books, kitchen equipment, gadgets, etc. Items in good condition can be sold or donated, and the rest goes into the garbage! Your makeup stash is also a very important part of your spring cleaning, after all, these are things that you use on your body and face. Get rid of expired creams, old lipsticks, brushes that have been sitting on the shelf for a long time, etc.
