Nothing beats spending a relaxing day at home

When was the last time you actually enjoyed a day at home minus social media and the lure of the Internet? Nowadays, most of us spend weekends outside: either strolling around the mall or dining at fancy restaurants. Don't you miss spending time at home? Since you're out most of the time, you need to rediscover the comfort our own space brings.

Schedule a staycation at home and take an Internet hiatus! Here are just some of the reasons why you should do it soon:

It’s cheaper

Yes, you can book a stay in your favorite hotel but did you know that you can actually recreate the feel and vibe of hotel rooms in your own home? This option is cheaper, more practical, and allows you to save money! Christmas is fast-approaching so it pays to be wiser when it comes to your purchases.

It allows you to bond with your family

Spending time with your loved ones should be your number one priority. The best way to do this? How about a movie marathon or a cooking session? You can even work on crafts and projects that you can display afterwards. Don't miss this opportunity to catch up with everyone.

It gives you the perfect time to work on repairs

While staycations are all about relaxing and getting enough sleep, you may also take this chance to work on a few home improvement projects. Check the faulty bulb that you have been ignoring for months! Have your pipes checked for leaks. You can even change the wallpaper in your bedroom since you have time on your hands.

It allows you to declutter and organize

You're busy with work and you've been delaying the enormous task of decluttering your home. Since you're already working on minor repairs, why not organize your space at the same time? You can devote at least 30 minutes to fixing up your closet and keeping your shoes in place. Once you're done with these tasks, reward yourself with a long bath and a good meal plus dessert!
