If you’re in the process of selling your home, take advantage of the extra day this month to tackle some of the chores you’ve been putting off—or remove yourself from the process by taking some time to relax and unwind.

Spending extra time around the house will provide the opportunity to do another purge of all the things you no longer need. To truly be effective, dig deep through closets and cabinets to try to make them as clean and empty as possible. With spring right around the corner, now may be a good time to start putting away some of your bulky winter things.

In addition to getting rid of things you no longer need, spend some time cleaning your home. If you’re not going to hire a professional cleaner, take the time to clean and dust every area of your house—including the windows, closets and shelves—so that your entire home sparkles when prospective buyers come to view it. While cleaning, replace burnt out lightbulbs so that your home truly shines.

You may also want to spend some time reading books and searching the Web for advice on selling a home. Who knows, you may even stumble across a tip you haven’t tried yet that will help your home stand out from the competition even more.

And last but not least, if it’s not too cold outside, do some things around the yard to make sure it’s in good shape. Winter can take a toll on shrubs and bushes, so clean up any twigs or debris that may have found their way into your yard.
