The first of Apartment Therapy's Weekend Projects for 2015 is here. It's super easy to complete and anyone (with any type of home) can do it. After a whole month of kicking butt cleaning and freshening your home for the January Cure, we thought the first Weekend Project of the year should be a look-ahead assignment you can complete without a lot of scrubbing. In under an hour you can complete this simple task and get organized for a healthy and happy home this year.

This Weekend's Assignment:

Plan out a home maintenance calendar

Let's get organized and ahead. This weekend, record in a calendar (digital or analog) all those have-to-remember-to-do tasks we sometimes forget about that keep our homes humming along happily. Checking the smoke detectors. Washing the baseboards. Cleaning out the gutters. Take the time today to fill out the calendar for the entire year so you don't have to worry about trying to remember these tasks. After completing this Weekend Project, your home's maintenance for the year will be neatly planned out and your home's maintenance will (hopefully!) run smoothly on course all year long.

Both apartment dwellers and homeowners have tasks around the house that need to be done throughout the year, with some tasks applying to all types of homes and others more specific to the type of home you live in. Your first step is figuring out what your home needs to be maintained throughout the year. Click the link above for a full tutorial on how to complete this easy home task!
