Sign Up for the January Cure and Enjoy a Cleaner, Happier Home for 2021!
While the new year is always a welcome reset, it truly feels like 2021 is offering a life preserver. No, things aren’t magically going to get better when the clock strikes midnight. The new year is not divine. But Jan. 1 feels like a starting line, and you can channel that calendar reset into your heart, your mind, and your spirit to make whatever small changes you need to make to improve your life… or at least the parts you can easily control.
Your home life is one of those areas within your command, even if it doesn’t always feel like it. There are plenty of things you can change about the way your space looks and feels—like decluttering a few things or cleaning up the kitchen. And you can certainly change the way your home makes you feel by changing your point of view and finding ways to appreciate the space you have.
If all of that (the decluttering and the cleaning and the gratitude for your home) sounds good to you, but you don’t know where to start, I have great news: Apartment Therapy is kicking off the January Cure on Jan. 4, 2021. And all you have to do to join is sign up with your email address right now:
What is the January Cure?
The January Cure is a (free!) 20-day program all about loving on your home and preparing yourself and your space for the new year. It’s guided by me, Taryn Williford, Apartment Therapy’s organizing and cleaning editor. If you’re signed up for the Cure, I’ll send 20 weekday assignments straight to your inbox starting on Monday, Jan. 4.
The Cure is a tried and true concept (we’ve been doing it in one way or another for more than a decade), and we’re excited to partner with Libman to make the 2021 January Cure better than ever.
How Do I Join?
All you have to do is sign up with your email in the box below, or on this signup page. Then we’ll send those daily assignments straight to your inbox every morning, so you can plan out how you’ll get that day’s task done.
What Can I Expect?
We’ll do a little bit of cleaning, a little bit of organizing, get some home projects planned for the year ahead, and mostly just spend time together showing our homes some love so they can love us back.
One day we’ll declutter a single drawer, while other days we’ll tackle big messes like the clothes closet. But there’s no pressure to complete everything. The Cure is about progress, not perfection, so you’re welcome to follow along and pick and choose whatever assignments speak to you.
But if you embrace the Cure, it really works to deliver a home where you can feel your best. Just read some of the comments from last year’s Cure graduates:
- “Thanks, Taryn. As each cure unfolds, I get a clearer vision of what I want my home to be and how to get there. My goal for the rest of this year is to become more aware of reducing single use plastics and cleaners and to adopt a planet-friendly environment.” —notsoprimrose
- “I love that I now have a master project list and tasks to do for my house. It’s really helped me sort through the jumble of thoughts and projects that pop into my head and I forget to write down.” —krmsp
- “Thank you Taryn again for guiding us on a fun journey together. And thanks to all the other readers riding alongside, especially those that came to my aid when I was having a down moment over some long standing issues we have with our house. Sometimes the January Cure can be about more than good housekeeping. Happy homes, happy hearts!!” —north country girl
Join now, and I’ll see you again on Jan. 4!
