Thanks for the 100 tips, will go thru it one by one and use the ones that applies to me. I'm sure a lot of these will apply, having been home since March 12th.

Erika Rae Albert, Austin Real Estate Expert These are terrific, each with short-term focus and therefore easy to take on one project at a time, and plenty of them fun, not just "productive." But yeah, also got a giggle from "organize the pantry" taking top of the list.
