Using Social Distancing and Quarantine as an Opportunity

Here’s a list of tasks you can do to keep busy during the quarantine

Whether it’s a project you keep “meaning to” get to, or an ever-growing “honey-do” list, many of us tend to have a hard time finding the time to commit to taking care of our projects at home. However, many of us are also spending extra time at home due to the social distancing and quarantine restrictions affecting our lives.
Schools, many businesses, gathering places, and events are closed or canceled, and a lot of us may even be working from home as we all weather this storm together. We’ve compiled a list of common Spring cleaning tasks to help keep you busy and productive in your home time.
