Making the Most of the Season: 3 Spring Activities Worth Trying

Spring is officially well-underway as we start to move into longer, brighter days and warmer temperatures. If you are looking for great activities to enjoy this season, there is no shortage of new things to try! Here are three fun activities that can help you make the most of the season.

Plant a Garden

With its mix of sunshine and showers, spring is the perfect time to start planting a garden. Keep an eye on the weather report, pick a sunny day, and get started! Planting colorful additions, such as daffodils and tulips, is great for sprucing up your home’s curb appeal. Another great option is edible plants such as parsley and tomatoes which can make for tasty additions to your meal prep!

Explore Your Neighborhood

It’s amazing how long a person can live in a place without truly getting to know the neighborhood! Spring is a fantastic opportunity to get some exercise, enjoy the fresh air, and explore. Plan out walks to different areas of your neighborhood that you haven’t had a chance to explore before—you never know what new shops or walking trails you might find!

Plan a Garage Sale

A garage sale is a perfect chance to clear the clutter from your home and make a little extra spending money on the side. When doing your spring cleaning, be sure to set aside any sellable items that you no longer have any use for. Pick a sunny weekend morning for your event and post a few signs around your neighborhood to advertise the big day. With any luck, your house should be cleaner and your wallet fuller by the afternoon!
