While I don’t live up north, I’ve heard enough about this blizzard to feel like I do. So while I won’t be experiencing the polar winds and freezing temps, I will be inside at home avoiding the frigid 40s here in Atlanta. And since I’m an expert at being trapped inside thanks to my hurricane days in Florida, I’ve become a pro at distractions. Here’s my list of what to do during the 2015 Snowpocalypse (with a glass of wine in hand, obvi):

1. Organize your closet
When do people have time to color coordinate or even shift seasonal clothes? Right now. That’s when. Get to it! Camille Styles has a helpful guide if you need a little motivation.

2. Work out
I remember a couple years ago I worked out in our building’s gym for the first time because the internet was out. I had no idea what to do with myself. Even if you don’t have a gym, do some crunches or follow one of those at home workout guides.

3. Game Night with the Neighbors
If you’re trapped at home alone, grab a bottle and some neighbors and set up a fun game night. Cards Against Humanity is my fave! It may be lame to some, but I seriously LOVE game night. Plus most games can be turned into drinking games. Double win.

4. Shop Online
And finally, the best distraction of all: online shopping! Just remember, shipping might be delayed a day or two. Here’s a round up of some current sales to make up for it:
