If you’re stuck inside on an awful, cold rainy day, that doesn’t mean you can’t get anything done. Here are some ideas from Wise Bread for remaining productive when you can’t leave the home:

Cook Ahead

Save yourself some time on busy days by preparing soups, bread, casseroles, etc. that you can freeze and store.

Re-familiarize Yourself With Your Pantry

It’s easy to let items expire or sit forever in your pantry. Use a rainy day to take stock of what’s in your pantry. Reorganize so that you use the items that need to be used and figure out what you need for restocking.

Try Some New Exercises

Go online and find free exercise classes/videos. For example, you could give yoga or Pilates a try.

Review and Update Your Budget

Time the time to review your budget, make sure you’re on the right track and that it’s working for you.

Move Your Living Space Around

Mix things up a bit by moving around furniture in your home. You’ll get a new feel in your home for free.
