As we enter another week in San Antonio, isolating ourselves within our homes, we might be going a little bit stir crazy by now. As a local, small business, our focus is always on our customers and helping you love your home. Sometimes this involves us providing tips for the next remodel, or home maintenance. However, we thought this would be the perfect time for some tips to keep busy in and around your home, as we all keep a safe social distance and ride this thing out together.
If you’ve already cultivated a green thumb creating stunning curb appeal, now would be a great time to expand upon your skills and plant a vegetable garden. We’ve had some damp weather lately but with all this moisture, you’re bound to get a great start with your seedlings before the heat rolls in. And with all this extra time at your home, building raised boxes might be the project you need right now. Good House Keeping offers some excellent tips to build raised garden beds.
Take a Drive
If you’re new to Texas, or have just found yourself too busy up until now, this is the perfect time for that Sunday (or any day) drive up into the Texas Hill Country. We Love the Texas Hill Country has compiled a list of the top sites for your viewing pleasure. The best part is, with a cooler full of drinks and snacks, you could easily enjoy any one of these today!
Cleaning supplies might still be hard to come by in some stores but that doesn’t have to stop us from decluttering that hall closet or garage. Most of us tend to hold onto things we might not really need, or have forgotten about. Take some time, maybe create a schedule, to declutter areas of your home that might have been neglected up until now. You might not be able to have that garage sale just yet, but you’ll be ready for it if you start now.
Bust Out the Old Photo Albums
Who doesn’t love a little nostalgia? In the age of electronics, many of us maintain more of a digital photo album but with family members all at home, this is a great time to go back to simpler times and look through your grandparents meticulously kept albums. You could also spend this time updating, or creating your own. Free Prints Now offers up to 1000 prints free that can be ordered directly from your phone and shipped to your home.
We hope we’ve provided you with a few ideas to help you get through this time safely, while maintaining yours, and the community’s health. We love our customers and look forward to seeing you all again. Until then, we’re all in this together.
