Things to Do in Your House in Winter to Beat Boredom

Things to Do in Your House in Winter to Beat Boredom

During winter in South Africa, we tend to spend more time indoors—but boredom quickly sets in staring at the same four walls. Good news! You can enjoy plenty of activities in the comfort of your home. Let's explore exciting ways to beat the winter blues and make the most of your indoor space.

1. Engage in Indoor Hobbies

Winter is the perfect time to explore indoor hobbies and unleash your creativity. Whether painting, knitting, playing a musical instrument, or experimenting with new recipes, indulge in activities that bring you joy and keep your mind active. Pioneer Plastics offers various storage solutions to keep your hobby supplies organised so that everything is easily accessible when inspiration strikes.

2. Sort Out Cupboards

Winter is the ideal time to clear out and organise your cupboards. The last thing you want to do when it's sweltering outside is unpack, sort, and repack. Durable and practical storage solutions, such as nest stacking bins, are weather-resistant and pest-proof—maximising space while keeping your summer clothes and seasonal gear safe until they're needed again.

3. Plant Some Flowers

Brighten up your house or garden by introducing some vibrant winter flowers. African daisies, Iceland poppies, Violas, Pansies, Foxgloves, Snapdragons, and Primulas are just a few varieties that thrive in the cooler months.

Pioneer Plastics' flowerpots are an excellent choice for winter flowers, made from durable and weather-resistant polyethylene. These pots protect the roots from freezing while ensuring proper drainage for healthy plant growth.

4. Use Greywater

Not only are we in the midst of a water crisis, but most of South Africa only receives summer rainfall. During dry winters, it's essential to conserve water.

A simple solution is to use greywater effectively. Place a bucket in the shower to collect water while showering. You can reuse this water multiple times, such as rinsing running and gym clothes in the bucket to remove bacteria. Then, you can use the rinse water for watering plants.

Consider connecting your washing machine outlet to a tapered water tank <link to>, which can store washing machine grey water for use in cisterns.

5. Transform Your Home with Décor

Why not take this opportunity to update your home decor? Consider rearranging furniture, adding new artwork, or experimenting with different colour schemes. We recently launched new decorative pieces that speak to the latest Nguni cow head trend.

7. Provide Warmth for Your Pets with Plastic Dog Kennels

If you must go out and leave your pets behind, ensuring their comfort and safety is paramount.

Pioneer Plastics' plastic dog kennels provide excellent insulation from the cold, keeping your furry friends safe and warm. These kennels are designed to withstand harsh weather conditions, offering a cosy and secure space for your pets during the cold winter.
