My January 2021 Goals

Hiyah Friends, and welcome back to my monthly goals post. Now, besides being nosy, I find goal posts inspirational to read and even write. They can help maintain and channel focus, especially when we are living and experiencing something like a worldwide pandemic.

Whilst it would have been easy to leave my goal posts behind in 2020, I wanted to keep up these regular posts. Even if it makes it a little easier at the end of the year to pinpoint key milestones of a year. As a new year dawns on us, and the prospect of better times gleaming through, I am so excited for this fresh start.

So, without rambling on much longer, lets kick start 2021 with a brand new set of goals for January.

January flat lay

Get completely un-boxed

It’s no surprise when people say they have boxes from their move that still haven’t been unpacked several years later. Thankfully, we have unpacked the majority of our boxes, with a few stubborn left in our third bedroom. Although I would LOVE to hide them away and forget about them, its really not an option. Here’s hoping by the end of January we will have un-packed and found a home for it all and boxes will be no more!

Board our loft

There comes alot of pros from moving into a brand new build home, but one of the cons we have quickly found is the well insulated but lack of storage loft we have been left with. Of course, that means it’s down to us to install some boarding to house our Christmas decorations.

With the pure intention of getting everything straight, high on our list is making our loft storage safe. With a quick google and look at DIY stores, it seems fairly straightforward and not tooo expensive to install. Here’s hoping it goes well.


The bane of my life and a main reason why our upstairs feels so cluttered – we don’t have any wardrobes, With one chest of draws, clothes are piled unattractively across various bedrooms making it a very stressful experience when trying to find something to wear. I’m praying in January we can finally order and build some much needed wardrobe storage and I can finally get my clothes where they should be.

Part of the reason we still don’t have wardrobes is the delay on Ikea Pax wardrobe solutions. Unfortunately, there are no other alternatives that offer us the storage we need in the space we have.

Letterbox had a break at the end of 2020. Having had a tough year, it became hard to keep on top of the magazine and give it the attention is deserves. There have been a lot of plans and content creation over the previous weeks, so it will all be ready for its first edition in 2021.


I think its fair to say my blog is going nowhere in 2021. Over the previous months, it was hard to create the content I really wanted, but having moved into our new home, and with lots of plans to make it our own, I’m excited for the year of DIY, home decor and interior content.

I finally feel my content will reflect my current passions and I’m so excited for the year.

Unlike every January, I feel so optimistic for the month, and even the year. We have a new focus, that being the house, but I feel so rooted, unlike the back end of 2020. With a new home, a puppy and lots of projects, I feel everything is set up for a cracking year, whatever the universe throws our way.

What’s your January goals?
