Whether it is Diwali, Chinese New Year or Hari Raya, the one main duty most households share is decluttering our homes. With Ramadan approaching 12 April 2021, it is advisable to give ourselves time to clean, as it will save you from struggling with cleaning and fasting at the same time.

To begin this spring cleaning task, make a checklist of the big items you will need to take on: washing curtains, bedsheets, cushion covers, tablecloths and carpets you intend to use on Hari Raya.

Air out pillows, carpets and small furniture - items that will be hard to move around once the fasting period starts.

When the fasting period starts, Muslim friends have shared with me their struggles of waking up at pre-dawn for an entire month to perform prayers and to read the Quran. Here's a tip: we think a plug-in night lamp can actually create soft light for your reading and it doesn't cost much.

Preparing your household in advance will automatically create a homey and comfortable environment as you welcome the blessed month of Ramadan, and it shouldn't bust your budget with planning.

Here are some budget-friendly ways we think you'll like.

Add light to your walls

A beautifully decorated wall will be a visual feast for guests and family members. Also, a backdrop for photos and selfies!
