5 useful things to do during lockdown

While the weather is changeable (at best!), and we’re still at home, make the most of the time by getting some really useful tasks done during lockdown; you’ll feel a great sense of satisfaction afterwards.

Here are 5 useful things to do during lockdown:

How to store loyalty cards

1    If you’re anything like me, you have a purse bursting with loyalty cards.

Download an app, such as the Stocard app onto your phone, scan them all in and you don’t have to carry them all around with you.

2 If your address book is crammed with cards and scraps of paper, give it a refresh; write everything in on the correct page. Or have a complete revamp and purchase a new one.

Our popular Addresses & Reminders Book comes with a tabbed address section and also reminders for birthdays and gift/Christmas card lists.

2 Plan your garden. Spring is just around the corner, and it’s the perfect time to wander round your garden making plans for the year.

Be inspired by our features on The Fragrant Garden, Planting Bulbs or Gardening for Colour.

4 Organise your bookshelves. Order books by theme, in alphabetic order, or (my favourite as it looks so lovely) by colour.

Give yourself plenty of time as you’re bound to begin browsing while completing this task.

Lancashire Cheese Scones

5 Batch cook. Make bigger quantities of soups, stews, curries, bakes, scones etc and freeze them for use in the coming weeks.

There’s plenty of inspiration on the recipe section of our website.

This recipe from our fabulous Around Britain cookbook makes 12 cheese scones; a couple to enjoy now and 10 for the freezer.
