When the going gets tough, the tough get going. That’s what we’re saying around Sweeps as we find ourselves trapped inside with all this rain. What do you like to do when you’re rained in?

  1. Purge your closet
    Focus on what’s important by organizing your wardrobe. Get ready for fall and remove what you don’t need!
  2. Clean the baseboards
    Often these guys get overlooked. Make your home truly shine with this deep cleaning task.

3. Take it to the thrift store
Do a good thing and donate your extras. You can even write it off on your taxes!

4. Refurbish old furniture
Sand down an old table or chair and give it a new look. Recycling at its finest!

5. Rearrange your room
Refocus your living spaces by moving things around. You might change your whole outlook on things!

6. Organize old pictures
Get all those pictures off the hard drive and into a photo album. Reminisce about all the fun things you’ve done.

7. Clean out your fridge
Let’s face it, the fridge could use a scrubbing. How many salad dressings do you really need?

8. Read a book
Dive into another world. Learn something new. Pick up that book you’ve been meaning to read!

9. Write thank you notes
There’s hardly a better time to tell the people you care about thank you. How awesome are hand-written letters?

10. Throw a party
Invite everyone over for a potluck. Play cards and eat well. We’ve all got cabin fever too!
