The January Cure is all about refreshing and organizing your home for 2019. We tackle one assignment each weekday throughout the entire month. It’s not too late to sign up, and you can visit the Cure page to catch up with the assignments so far.

For those of you who have been doing the Cure with us all month, I hope you’re enjoying it so far, and after a few weeks of small efforts, you’re feeling really good about the state of your space. For those of you who are just now learning about the Cure—welcome! Today is the perfect day to jump in (better late than never!), because it’s our official “catch up” day.

Both the Apartment Therapy editors and our loyal readers (who’ve been doing this thing year after year) believe in the Cure because it’s a “real life” plan for gaining control over your home. The whole thing is doable, thanks to days like today.

The official assignment is detailed below, but you know what to do…

Today’s Assignment: Take a catch-up day.

You name it! Whatever you need to get done today, get to it.

That might mean catching up on a missed Cure assignment, putting the finishing touches on your project, hanging the art you had framed, or doing whatever else needs doing around the house.

When I’m chatting with y’all about the Cure, I sometimes see comments lamenting unfinished assignments. I promise—it’s OK to skip things. Or move them around. Even if you don’t finish your catch-up to-do list today, give yourself some grace. You’re working hard to make your home the best it can be, and that’s impressive and impactful in any amount.

The Cure isn’t about perfection, it’s about progress. Everything you want to do for your home doesn’t have to be finished in 30 days. You’ll get to it, a little at a time.

Let us all know what you’re choosing to work on and how you’re spending your catch-up day!
