40 Ways To Be Productive During A Quarantine

At the beginning of the quarantine, I remember being one of those people re-posting memes and joking about stocking up on bathroom tissue. Little did we all know that in a matter of days our world would quickly be turned upside down. Major sports events for the Spring and Summer would have been canceled or re-scheduled, supermarket shelves wiped clean (pun intended), schools closed, and many of us forced to making sure our office phones were forwarded to our cells so we could work from home for the foreseeable future.

As an introvert, I enjoy the solitude of working from home and not having a specific event to attend. I do, however, enjoy going out to the malls and doing some shop-till-you-drop or even eating at a nice establishment with my hubby. I recently discovered dozens and dozens of productivity hacks and ways to stay entertained at home, as well as resources for making extra money and growing my current business. Can you say #bossbabe? LOL
 Below you’ll find 40+ ways to be creative while spending time at home. Let me know your favorites and feel free to add your ideas in the comment section!
