Three days into the New Year. Do you still have holiday decorations up? Many people don’t take down the holiday trimmings until the 6th of January. If that’s your family tradition, that’s absolutely fine—make sure you know where all the boxes and wrappings are to stow away the fragile items safely for next year.
If you don’t wait until the 6th to stow things away, then get as much done as you can before the new week begins. While outside taking down lights and the wreath, take the time to walk the perimeter of the house.
Make a Punch List
Walk through every room in the house. Jot down everything that needs to be done to get your house in good repair. Do the baseboards need to be painted? Pictures hung? Light bulbs changed? Drywall patched? Ignore the dust bunnies for now. We’ll get to them in due time.
When finished, walk around the perimeter of your home and write down everything that needs to be taken care of out there.
