From tearing the tree down to bagging up what’s been lurking in the depths of our wardrobes, there’s no time like the present to introduce some fresh vibes into your home. It’ll do you the world of good mentally too. What’s more, if you’ve managed to hold on to a few bob this month, there’s no better time to update your living space with discounted goods in the winter sales.
