5 Easy Ways to Make your Apartment Feel Cozier

We’re in the middle of winter and who doesn’t like feeling cozy inside when it’s cold and wet outside? You don’t need an interior designer to make your apartment have a cozier feel. Try following these 5 simple steps before you curl up at home to relax.

 

  1. Have lots of soft throw blankets in your living room. Store them in baskets or on a blanket ladder for a decorative touch.
  2. Use soft lighting. Instead of turning on overhead lights, turn on a table lamp or use flameless LED candles to give your home a soft glow.
  3. Switch to slippers right when you get home. Leave your slippers by the front door so you can slip right into them and take off your snow boots without tracking in any snow.
  4. Decorate with warm colors. Earth tones have a cozier feel than bright, bold colors.
  5. Designate a spot in your home that is comfortable to curl up. Whether it’s a comfortable chair or spot on the couch, make sure you have a soft place to unwind after a long day.

5 Tips for Keeping Your New Year’s Resolutions

Whether you decided to eat healthier or keep your home clean and organized, keeping a resolution can be challenging. Before you start getting frustrated or thinking about throwing in the towel, check out these helpful tips!

 

1- Make your goal very specific. Instead of saying “I’m going to be healthy in 2018” make your goal more specific by saying “I’m going to exercise three times per week in 2018.”

2- If you need someone keeping tabs on you to keep you honest, make your goals and resolutions public. Share your goals on your social media account or with a friend and share your progress.

3- Reward charts aren’t just for kids. Make a chart that you can check off to keep organized. List all of your household cleaning chores and check them off as you complete them. Reward yourself with something special when you’ve completed everything.

4- Make your goals progressive. Instead of making one big goal to reach by the end of the year, make smaller goals that you’ll hit each quarter to build up to the bigger goal.

5- Don’t be too hard on yourself. If you slip back into old habits it’s okay. Don’t give up – you can always jump right back into a new lifestyle without ruining your plans for the year.

Princeton’s 5 Days of Giveaways – Day 5

It’s Day 5….the final day of Princeton’s 5 Days of Giveaways! Find our tips for last-minute shopping ideas and get the final question!

 

 

It happens….we look at the calendar and it’s only a few days until Christmas and we still haven’t shopped for everyone on our list. Read these tips and ideas below if you’re in a time crunch and need gifts fast…

1 – If you don’t have time (or energy) to head to the mall in the eleventh hour, try a DIY gift instead! You can craft an ornament or bake some holiday cookies for the last people on your lists.

2 – If you can’t get out to even buy a gift card, consider printing one right from your home computer! Many stores offer online purchases and they can e-mail you your digital gift card right away.

3 – Consider gifting an experience rather than an actual gift. Head to Groupon or Living Social and purchase an outing or lesson for your friends or family members.

4 – Check store websites to see if you can pickup items that you purchase online. Some stores (like Walmart) offer free pickup until 6pm on Christmas eve of items purchased online. You can skip the search and the crowds and head right to the pickup section of the store.

5 – If all else fails….regift! You may have something at home that you haven’t opened or used that might be great use to someone on your list.
