6 Things to Do When You're Stuck Inside in the Winter

Monday, January 26, 2015

We're gearing up for a big winter storm here in New England and as a result, we may be stuck inside for a few days. Besides working at home, most people will have a good amount of time on their hands if they decide not to brave the elements or risk driving on the roads. So here are some ideas of what to do with that extra time:

Binge watch TV shows: This is a great time to start a new show or catch up on one you've missed. I just finished The Affair, which was really good and it's only 10 episodes so not too much to tackle. I also recommend Homeland, Friday Night Lights, Orange is the New Black and Scandal. 

Clean out your closet/consign some stuff: If you haven't worn it in a year, then either give it to Goodwill or Second Time Around (or other consignment shops) if it's still in good condition. We all have stuff we don't need or want anymore.

Try a new recipe: Get out that crockpot and use ingredients you have laying around the kitchen. We're planning to make a version of this soup this week.

Clean your makeup brushes: It's something we all should do more but can never seem to find the time. Follow the easy steps here. (Btw, the Real Techniques brushes are great and super affordable.)

Read a book: I'm almost done with You Should Have Known and I'm planning to read The Language of Flowers next. Nothing better than getting lost in a good book.

Online shopping: Sign up for Ebates or Amazon Prime and search for good deals. There are also a lot of good sales going on right now such as...

JCrew: 25% off select full price items and 50% off sale items

Loft: 40% off everything

Ann Taylor: 40% off almost everything

Stay warm!
