With fall in full swing at 360 State, as you might have seen lately many of us can look forward to quite a few rainy days ahead in New Haven. When it’s cold and wet outside and you just can’t be bothered to leave the apartment, make the most of your time inside your 360 State home. Here are 3 ideas beyond “Netflix binge” (though hey, no judgement!) to keep you busy on those rainy days.
1.) Clean or Organize Something
This isn’t the most fun suggestion of the bunch, but it’ll make you feel great afterwards. A few hours of forced indoor time is the perfect opportunity to scrub your kitchen cupboards, sort through the linen closet, or reorganize your home library. Empty your closet, rearrange your shoes and get rid of all the clutter that’s been gathering inside your apartment.
2.) Start a Rain Project
What’s a rain project? Something you’ve always wanted to do, with no time limit, that you can work on incrementally. It can be home-related or not, anything from reading a book to coding your first website. Whenever it rains, you’re going to work on it; you might even find yourself looking forward to the forced productivity.
3.) Stock Your Freezer
Rainy days are made for the kitchen, and a full freezer of meals and to-go snacks will make the nicer days ahead that much more enjoyable. This is a great time to freeze unbaked scones,cinnamon buns and other baked goods for morning emergencies and trays of mini frittatas for workday lunches. You can also chop up fresh vegetables, put meats into serving sizes and put them in your freezer so you have meals ready to go in the weeks to come.
