2020 was a heck of a year. Did your plans and goals get derailed like the rest of us? Many took it as a way to reflect and prioritize what is important in our lives.
One of the biggest changes this past year was people working from home. Due to the pandemic, more and more people needed to become accustomed to working from home. For those of us who had to make the shift, we spent more time in our homes than ever.
Looking ahead to 2021, it’s time to take back control of our space and the best way to do that is by creating apartment goals. Your apartment is your sanctuary and safe space. It only makes sense to have it be in tip-top shape. A place where you can work, relax, and entertain, and enjoy it all the while.

1. Wash Your Dishes
There is something to be said about a clean kitchen. Not only does it make you feel good, but your food and cooking habits will improve as well. Don’t let dishes, pots, and pans pile high, why not make this year different and wash your dishes after using them? Make a schedule for yourself, the sooner you do them the better.
Doing dishes gets a bad rap as well. When you imagine doing the dishes, does it make you curl up inside? Think of doing your dishes as another form of meditation. You’ll be surprised by how relaxing it can be.
2. Set a Chore Schedule
Have a list of chores but it feels too daunting in your head? Having a routine you can stick to will help you mentally. When you have a clean and tidy space, you can breathe and think more easily. Write out all of the tasks you have. Block out time every week to stay on track. Setting aside time to complete your tasks and chores will keep you well organized.
3. Organize Your Space
Speaking of organization, let’s look to keep our spaces tidy. Have a space for all your belongings. Make it a plan for everything to have a home. When you do this you clear up mental space as well. Your physical space is a representation of your mental. For this reason, it only makes sense to keep it uncluttered. This is especially important for one of your small apartment goals. Your roommates and pets will love you for it.
4. Purge Your Stuff
Go through each room of your apartment. Look around you and notice all of your objects. Take stock of what you need versus what you don’t. The truth is you don’t need much. Is there anything you can give away or donate? This works especially well with clothes. If you haven’t used it or worn it in a while, it may be time to let it go.
Not only will this make you feel good, but now you will have even more space. Just don’t refill it with junk again. If you’re unsure if it should stay or go, ask yourself if it sparks joy.
5. Run Your Bills on Autopilot
Take the headache and pain out of paying your bills on time. Make your life simpler by automating your bills and expenses. When you do this be sure to have it in line with payday.
When you have less to worry about, your life will run more smoothly. You will be able to enjoy your downtime in your space. Happily check this one off your apartment goals list.
