Rainy or “Rainy” Day Home Tasks You Can Do in Your PJs

Rainy days often equal lazy days. It’s all too easy to find yourself in your pajamas all day, watching old movies and not getting a thing done. Here are a few things you can check off your home to-do list that you can do without getting out of your PJs. Here’s how to break your cabin-fever funk in each room without breaking a sweat.

1. Kitchen

Clean out the fridge

Can you confidently say you have no expired food or condiments in your fridge? If you haven’t done so in a while, go through your fridge and throw away any expired or spoiled items, or unwanted leftovers. Make a list of what you throw away so you can be sure to pick up those items up next time you’re at the grocery store.

Disinfect the sink

Did you know your kitchen sink usually has more germs than your toilet? There are typically more than 500,000 bacteria per square inch in the drain alone. Use a solution of about 1 tablespoon of bleach mixed with warm water to kill most of the germs lingering. If there is an odor coming from your drain, squeeze lemon juice into it, and then throw the lemon into the disposal and grind away.

2. Bathroom

Fix uneven fixtures

If you have a sagging towel rack or uneven toilet paper holder, now is the time to fix it. Unscrew the fixture and look for the culprit. Most likely it’s a cheap plastic drywall anchor or screw that wasn’t screwed in correctly. A few minutes can fix that eyesore you’ve been looking at since you moved in.

Clean the mirror

If you take a second and look at your bathroom mirror, you may be shocked at what you see. Take a few minutes and some window washing spray to make your mirror shine.

3. Bedroom

Clean out your closet

Who couldn’t use a little more closet space? Instead of looking at a full closet remodel, make a donation bag of clothes you haven’t worn in a while. A great way to easily decipher the clothes you wear from the ones you don’t is to turn all of your hangers backwards. When you wear something from your closet, turn that hanger forwards. After six months, whichever hangers are still backwards are the clothes that you don’t wear. Tada!

Clean out “that” drawer

Everyone has a drawer in their bedroom that they don’t open either because it’s a mess or because it’s so full that it won’t budge. Whether it’s a drawer of junk in your nightstand or an overstuffed dresser drawer, use this rainy day to finally go through it and discard the things you don’t want. If you can’t remember the last time you went through that drawer, throw everything in it away – you obviously haven’t needed anything in there in a while.

Everyone’s home could use a little TLC, whether that is some simple organization or disinfection of overlooked areas. The trick to turning your rainy lazy day into a productive PJ day is to look for the little things around your house that you’ve been putting off for a while and just do them. You’ll feel much better about staying in your pajamas all day if you do.
