It’s Monday, and you know what that means? The To-Do List is back with five more things to add to your week!

While you don’t have try everything, this list is something you can use to add a little variety to your week and keep things fresh. And don’t worry if you’ve already checked everything off your list; peep our previous lists here to get a few more fun ideas.

So, without further ado, here are five things to try this week!

Plant something – Whether you have a backyard or only a small space on your windowsill, planting fresh herbs not only makes you feel better, but also can add a much-needed kick to meals.

Act like a tourist – Longing for a vacation but can’t afford it? Act like a tourist in your own town. Every city is known for something; hit your town’s tourist attractions and see your city through a visitor’s eyes.

Play games – Remember how much fun board games were when you were a kid? An easy (and cheap) way to hang out with your friends is to have a game night. Invite your pals over and have them each bring a game. Before you know it you’ll be laughing and playing like old pros.

Raise your glass – Thought about becoming a wine connoisseur but didn’t know where you start? Sign up for a tasting at your local wine store.  If wine isn’t your thing, check out a local brewery and taste a few beers. Even if you don’t like all of them, you’ll leave with a smile on your face.

Write it down – A journal is a good way to document your life, but take it one step further and keep a gratitude journal. Be sure to write down all of the things  for which you’re thankful. When you look back on it, you’ll realized that you’re extremely blessed.

That’s it for now, Clutchettes. What’s on your To-Do List for the week?

    My husband & I will be picking our green tomatoes this week for fried green tomatoes, y’all!! Had a grilled chicken & pasta with white wine sauce dish last night and threw in some of the fresh basil we grow out on our deck, um…, yeah… ;) The garden thing is definately a mood lifter!!!!

    • Yumm that sounds so good! I never had fried green tomatoes

    love the ideas! I dont have a deck and am still on a waiting list for a community garden..I never thought about using my windowsill since it slopes downward. I’m done with the excuses and will figure out a way to have a mini garden on my windowsill :)
