The start of a new year is the perfect time to review your living space and make resolutions to create a more comfortable, organized, and enjoyable apartment. Whether you’re a seasoned renter or new to the game, there are always ways to improve your living environment. Here are some New Year’s resolutions that can help you transform your apartment into a place that you’ll love coming home to.

Declutter and Simplify

Start the year by decluttering your apartment. Go through each room, one at a time, and identify items you no longer need or use. Donate, recycle, or sell these items to clear out space and make your apartment home feel more open and organized.

Organize and Maximize Storage

Invest in storage solutions such as shelves, cabinets, and storage bins to keep your belongings organized. Make the most of vertical space and underutilized areas to create a clutter-free environment. Many of our Camden communities have onsite storage units (some even climate-controlled) available for rent!

Set Budget and Financial Goals

Set financial goals for the year related to your apartment. Whether it’s saving for furniture upgrades or creating an emergency fund for a rainy day, having a financial plan can reduce stress related to your living space. Be sure to consider the technology packages included in your monthly rent! Having internet and often cable bundled into your rent makes it an easy way to budget.

Commit to a regular cleaning routine to keep your apartment in tip-top shape! Schedule weekly tasks such as vacuuming, bathroom cleaning, and tackle larger cleaning projects seasonally.

Don’t have the time? Camden is now partnering with Spruce! Spruce provides residents with on-demand services such as housekeeping, chores, and pet care to our residents.

Walk More

Rather than committing to an exhausting and overly aspiring exercise routine, simplify your health and wellness goals by walking more daily. Simply walking for 15 minutes a day adds up over time, and the more you exercise, the better you’ll feel! During the winter season, walking can help stimulate blood flow, keep your thoughts clear, and keep winter depression away. Camden North Quarter has a huge fitness center with a dedicated yoga/spin room.

Embrace the opportunity to make your apartment the best oasis in 2024!
