With stay-at-home orders in effect, many people are finding creative ways to fill their time at home time. While binge watching Netflix, all-day-snacking and mid-day naps can be fun for a few days, after a little while you may begin to feel like you’d rather be doing something more productive.

If you’re on the hunt for projects that will fill your time and knock items off of your never ending to-do list, look no further! Check out the list below for some productive ways to spend your at-home time!

1. Reorganize your closet

While a stay-at-home order isn’t the most pleasant way to ring in spring, it does give us all the opportunity to reorganize our closets and put away our winter clothing. This week, make it a goal to go through every item in your closet piece-by-piece to assess what you’ll keep and what you’ll let go of.

Once you’ve sorted your items into keep/donate piles, hang or fold your spring and summer items for easy access and put your winter items in storage until next fall!

2. Clean out the garage

There’s no time like the present to declutter and reorganize your garage. This necessary task is often one that gets put off for months at a time because it can be so time consuming. Well, we’ve got the time now!

During this stay-at-home season, pick a day to dedicate to the project and get to work clearing out anything your family no longer uses.

This 5-step guide by Budget Dumpster could be useful for getting started!

3. Wash your linens

Most people wash their most used linens with some frequency but never quite get around to laundering their less-frequently used or tougher to get to linens. Now is the time to remove your pillow covers, take down your curtains and pull out those musty table clothes to give them all a thorough washing.

You don’t want to go too long in between cleaning these either because of all the germ buildup. It might feel like quite a chore as you’re doing it but your home will feel all the fresher once you’re done! 

4. Plant something

If you’ve ever wanted to start a garden, now is the time! Spend a day or two building a simple raised bed or clearing a small plot in your yard and then get to work planting flowers or produce to enjoy later in the year.

While running to the store for seeds and supplies isn’t a great idea, you should be able to order everything you need online.

Here’s a guide by Common Sense Home to make that garden a reality!

5. Pick up a healthy habit

There’s no time like the present to pick up that healthy habit you’ve always wished you had. Start taking a walk after dinner every night, plan your meals for the week before you go shopping or go on a bike ride every morning- whatever you do, make it something healthy and active!

Experts say that it takes at least a month of consistency to build a habit so if you start now you’ll have a new healthy habit (or two or three) by the time our stay-at-home orders are lifted! 

 

While staying at home has its ups and downs, many people are finding that the extra time with family and slower pace of life are something to be grateful for. This unusual spring, make the most of your at-home time by getting organized or building new habits!

Frequently Asked Questions

Still have a question?

Click here to send us a message or chat with us during business hours by clicking the chat bubble.

  • How do the bags work?

    We use colored bags to differentiate services and make it easy for you to let us know what services you need. Set the bags out separately on your scheduled pickup day, and make sure they’re fully closed for transit to our facility. Please note that any overflow will be transferred into another 2ULaundry bag at the time of pickup and billed separately.

  • Can I request additional bags?

    Yes, to ensure your cleaning preferences are met, please place items in the correct bag for that service.

    If you do not have the correct bags or enough bags for your upcoming pickup, please contact Customer Care or request the additional bag through your Online Account. We’ll deliver one to your location free of charge. If we’re unable to deliver an additional bag in advance of your pickup, simply leave the items in a personal bag labeled with your name and the requested service(s).

  • How do I schedule a pickup?

    Your first pickup will be scheduled during the signup process.

    The easiest way to schedule additional pickups and modify an existing pickup schedule is through our mobile app, which you can download here.

    Not quite sure about the app? You can also schedule your next pickup by texting “PICKUP” to 588-15. We will send you a personalized scheduling calendar to easily schedule a pickup without logging in to your Account.

    For additional scheduling options, you can always contact Customer Care with your preferred date or schedule pickups through your Account online at www.2ULaundry.com.

    A few things to note: When using the App or Online Account, pickup requests, cleaning notes, and location updates, must be made by midnight the night before pickup. Our Customer Care Team can accommodate same-day requests up until 7am the morning of the requested pickup.

    Customers have the option to schedule one-time pickups on an as-needed basis or recurring weekly schedules for more consistent service. You will always receive a reminder text the night before your pickup, giving you the option to cancel or reschedule your pickup if needed. Please make sure the primary phone number on your account receives texts!

  • Do I need to sort the clothes or do any prep work in advance?

    We want to make the cleaning process as easy and convenient as possible, so there’s no need to sort your clothes in advance.

    Mobile app/Online account: When scheduling a pickup from the Home Page, use the Wash, Dry, Fold & Hang Dry Notes and Dry Cleaning Notes to add any special cleaning notes for your next pickup.

    Email/Text: Send specific stain-removal or repair requests to Customer Care. Include a picture of the stain or repair area and/or a description of the garment and the location of the problem area
