New Year, New You! How Goodwill Helps You Stick to Your Resolutions

2021 is right around the corner, and we couldn’t be more excited for a fresh start in the new year! Now is a time when many people start setting goals and making resolutions for the year ahead. What do you want to accomplish this year?

If you’re looking for ideas, here are five great New Year’s resolutions and how Goodwill can help you achieve them:

Resolution #1: Stay on a Budget

One of the most popular New Year’s resolutions people make is to save more money. To do so, it’s important to follow a budget and shop smart whenever you can. Goodwill can help you with this goal!

Goodwill even receives donated sporting equipment and fitness gear so you can build your perfect at-home gym for less!




Resolution #3: Eat a Balanced Diet

Along with working out, it’s a great goal to start eating a nutritious, well-balanced diet. But all too often, eating healthy is easier said than done! One way to make healthier choices is to plan and prepare your meals in advance. Each week, make all your meals and store them in individual containers that you grab and go.

Resolution #4: Cut Back on Screen Time

We can all use a break from our computer, TV, tablet, and phone screens once in a while. If you’re trying to cut back on screen time in 2021, Goodwill has all the entertainment options you’re looking for!

Ohio Valley Goodwill has board games, puzzles, and toys for kids of all ages! If you’re into arts and crafts, Goodwill has what you need, too. Shop around for items you can repurpose for crafting projects, like gently used fabric, glass jars, wall art, and photo frames.

 Resolution #5: Get Organized

Having a clean and well-organized home is a great feeling, and the new year can give you the motivation you need to get started. While you sort through your stuff, you’ll likely find items you don’t need or want anymore. Instead of throwing these items away, donate them to Goodwill! We make it quick and easy to donate clothes and other home goods in Cincinnati. If organizing your entire home feels too overwhelming, tackle just one room or closet at a time. You’ll gain momentum as you go!
