5 Top New Year’s Resolutions for Your Kitchen and You

It’s hard to believe it’s that time again—time to make new resolutions for the New Year! In 2016, make your kitchen part of your New Year’s resolutions, and achieve your goals with the help of the TheRTAStore! Need more resolution ideas? Take a look at these five top New Year’s resolutions for your kitchen and you!

1. Redecorate your kitchen

Give your kitchen an overhaul with brand new kitchen cabinets from TheRTAStore. Our affordable cabinets come in a wide variety of finishes, from fresh, white kitchen cabinets to handsome, dark-colored kitchen cabinets. Don’t need new cabinets? Install backsplash tile for an easy update that’ll add interest to your kitchen, or simply switch out your existing kitchen hardware with new cabinet knobs and pulls to give your kitchen a fresh look for the new year.

2. Get organized

The kitchen is one of the most used rooms in the home, so keeping it organized can be a daily, not yearly, challenge. Bring order to your kitchen this year with inside cabinet accessories. Try a door mount spice rack to corral your unruly spice collection or a pull out cookware organizer to keep pots and pans in reach. 

3. Cut energy costs

Vowing to cut back on energy use in 2016 after the shock of your January bill? Making small changes around the house can save energy and money this year. Start by switching out any incandescent light bulbs with energy-efficient ones. According to www.energy.gov, energy-efficient light bulbs use 25-80% less energy than regular ones—that’s money in your pocket! Also, home building experts say you can keep your heating bill down by identifying and sealing cracks around doors and windows to keep precious heat in and winter air out. Finally, if you’re in the market for new kitchen or household appliances check their energy rating before you buy.

4. Eat more nutritiously

Start off with small healthy goals, like taking your lunch to work or grabbing an apple for snack to ease into eating more nutritiously this year. Once you’ve conquered a few small goals, add a few more until you’re eating more nutritiously on a regular basis. Keep healthy, portable snacks in the fridge and pantry for eating better when time is tight.

5. Make family time a priority

Before the New Year gets busy, set up a weekly or bi-weekly time that’s reserved just for family. That way if a competing activity arises, you already have that time blocked off and won’t feel guilty for saying no. Go for a family bike ride, head to the park, or just hang out at the house together as a family. Eating together around the table a few times a week is also great for family bonding!
