Not every problem in your home requires a big project to fix it. Some things are just little annoyances, but it's the little things that you forget over and over. If you keep a journal of what annoys you about your home, it will help you remember to actually fix it. Photo by Andres Rodriguez.
Maybe you constantly stub your toe on the coffee table, or find yourself frustrated every time you go to put certain pots and pans away. Whatever it is, it's small and fixable, but you forget about it until it happens again. That's why Katie Holdefehr at Apartment Therapy suggests you start writing it all down:
Keep a mindfulness journal for a few days of all the little slip-ups you experience at home... As you start to write down these incidents, you'll likely become more aware of how you move within and feel about your space. You may find yourself noticing things you would typically gloss over, or you may realise how much time you spend avoiding an issue.
For example, I had a shoddy shower component in my last apartment and it annoyed the crap out of me every time I took a shower. I never actually remembered to get it fixed until I wrote it down, however, and that was months into my lease. So when something annoys you around the house, right it down or stick a note in your phone immediately. You'd be surprised how much easier you can make things for yourself.
