25 Productive Things To Do At Home To Stay Busy

25 productive things to do at home to stay busy

Whether you’re at home by choice or not, it’s important to use the time you have at home to be productive. Relaxing is essential to your well-being, but it should always be done with moderation. There are only 24 hours in the day. 24 hours to use wisely. Choosing to relax or sleep most of those hours may seem quite appealing, but in the long run, it will hurt you more than help you. Don’t get me wrong, I wholeheartedly believe it is important to take care of yourself and make yourself a priority. However, taking care of yourself also means taking care of the time you are given.

Get rid of the clutter in your home by going through your things and setting aside anything that you don’t like, use anymore, or doesn’t spark joy in your life. Successfully declutter items by either throwing them away or donating them. 

1. Wardrobe decluttering – declutter the clothes and shoes in your closet. Get rid of all items you don’t wear, like, or need in your closet! 

2. Accessories + Jewelry decluttering – declutter your jewelry (rings, necklaces, earrings, chokers, bracelets, etc) and accessories ( purses, scarves, hats, etc) 

3. Make up decluttering – declutter your make up collection (brushes, palettes, glosses, foundation, mascaras, highlighters, blushes, etc) You know you need to 😉 

4. Phone declutteringdeclutter your camera roll, delete unnecessary apps, notes, photos, and videos. 

5. Computer decluttering – delete unwanted files to make space for new files.

6. Other decluttering – whether you’re an artist, a gamer, a book nerd, or a cook, get rid of the clutter in your collections!  


There is nothing better than living in a clean and organized home. It’s essential to create an environment that inspires you to create and live in. Take your time to deep clean and organize your home, one area at a time! Your time spent will be worth it.

7. Deep clean your room: make your bed, clean your vanity, clean your closet, clean and organize your drawers, vacuum/sweep the floors, and empty out your trash can.

8. Deep clean your bathroom: throw away old products (replace tooth brushes, mouth wash, soap etc), organize cabinets, clean the tub, scrub the sink, and disinfect all areas.

9. Deep clean your kitchen: clean counters/cabinets, put away dishes, wash out sink, disinfect all areas, clean the outside and inside of appliances (ex: microwave) and throw away trash

Planning ahead helps you prepare, control and tackle your daily tasks and goals.

15. Create a budget to help you spend and save money wisely.
