A follower recently responded to one of my question boxes on Instagram Stories with the suggestion of doing a “raiding my mother’s closet” type blog post. I don’t know how the thought had never crossed my mind to do a blog post like this, but of course I had to give it a try! I actually helped my mom clean out her closet a few weeks ago (just before my own closet cleanout of 2020), which of course my organization-loving self enjoyed immensely.

Regardless, I’ve never been the type of person who bores easily. I always have a million things to do or things I could choose to do (continue learning an instrument, read, write short stories, blog, play chess, etc.). But I realize not everyone is as eager to reorganize their bedroom or practice calligraphy as I am. So given that, I decided to round up a few ideas to keep you busy during this time—some are basic, some are outlandish, but hopefully you find that some of them are unique (and actually appealing).
