The ongoing time at home has provided us with time to reflect on the importance of taking care of home maintenance. This is the perfect time to examine those areas that are often overlooked, and make lists to decide on priorities. Here is a list of affordable or no-cost ideas to get your maintenance program going.

Take a look in your refrigerator and throw out old and never-used jars of condiments

Clean one or two rooms a week

Clear out the clutter in garages and sheds

Door handles, light and wall switches may require good cleaning

Wash dog beds and clean out crates

Air out your linen cupboard and cut up old towels for home cleaning rags

Go through your family's wardrobes and consider bagging unused items for donation to the poor
