As a mom, I LOVE break time! I find that I don’t get enough breaks!

However, I find that my problem tends to be WHAT to do when I get a chance! Do I read a book OR watch that movie I’ve been dying to see?

I can’t decide!!

So, I’ve created a list of 23 little things to do when you, as a mom, get a chance!

I created the list with the mom in mind who wants a break from motherhood or work life, but STILL wants to be productive in some capacity.

I also created the list to go easy on your budget! I find that the majority of things that I think to do cost money. So, most of these items will either have a small cost to them OR they will be free! Win-win!

To save your money and keep you from boredom, keep yourself busy. Save this list and look at it when you need inspiration for something to do!

Go for a walk

Visit your local library

Complete a puzzle

Tend to your houseplants

Read a magazine

Make a cup of tea

Write down a list of goals

Wipe your counters off

Trim and paint your nails

Mop your floor

Print out a coloring page and finish it

Look over your budget

Sweep the porch

Clean your fridge

Clean out your Tupperware

Put your books in order

Play a board game

Meal prep for the week

Write a special note to someone you care about

Finish a load of laundry

Clean your sink

Wipe marks off the walls

Clean off your desk

I truly hope these helped!

I plan on using this list quite frequently this year! I want to include MORE breaks into my time slots, but I also want to make sure that I am not neglecting other areas of my life.

With this lovely list of productive things to do, you can take a break from working or staring at a screen, and you will have completed a few things that needed to be done.

What do you do to stay productive when you don’t want to spend a ton of money? Let me know in the comments!
