Can’t go out because it’s raining cats and dogs outside? Spare yourself from the crazy traffic and stay indoors instead. Don't think that time spent at home is boring! There are different things that you can do and projects that you can work on that will surely help liven up your space.

Here are four fun things that you can do for a productive yet relaxing staycation:

Organize your collection

Whether you have a book, toy, or kitchenware collection, you need to keep your prized possessions clean and organized. Bring out each piece and make sure you remove dust properly before returning them inside cabinets or shelves. If you have extra space in the living area, you can also display a few pieces. 

Make lists

Doing grocery shopping anytime soon? Make a list of supplies that you need to buy. You can also list down other items that you need to purchase or check when you visit the mall. Doing this is not just therapeutic, it can also help you make your shopping mall visit organized and productive.

You can also list down movies to watch, series to catch up on, and books to read.

Plan your dream home

We all dream of living in a picturesque space that reflects our personality. To make your dream home come true, why not plan it step-by-step? Browse through magazines, take photos of pegs, visit websites and save photos on your desktop. Once you're done, you can work on a moodboard that can also serve as your vison board for your dream haven.

Personalize your décor

Rainy days allow you to sit back and relax. How about spending a few hours working on calligraphy projects, coloring books, and trying a new hobby? The possibilities are endless! You can also frame some of your finished artworks then display it in the living area or by the house entrance.

While at home, you may also want to check on your mini garden! Remove weeds and craft quirky and personalized planters from old bottles and jars.
