Sunday Funday > Super Bowl Sunday
“The Super Bowl is this weekend?” “Who’s playing in The Super Bowl?" "Where is it this year?"
These are just a few questions that have been floating around ThirdLove HQ this past week. If you’re also not that into football (or if you’re just watching for the commercials and/or the Lady Gaga halftime show), here are a few things you can do this Sunday instead of watching:
1. Do your taxes.
This may not sound very fun, but for those of us out there who really don’t like football, doing your taxes actually sounds like a treat. Just keep in mind how sweet a shopping spree will feel with that refund and get it done! Tools like Turbotax make it simple and pain-free and guaranteed to have you done in under an hour. Check out Time’s tips on doing your own taxes.
2. Get your girlfriends something fun for V-Day.
Valentine’s Day is all about love — but it doesn’t have to be about the man in your life! Treat your girlfriends to something special — after all, they’re by your side through thick and thin. And, Sunday is the perfect chance to get ahead of the game and start your shopping.
If you’re looking for something small, a nice candle or some bath products from Herbivore Botanicals would make a great gift. If she’s a homebody, consider sending some fresh blooms through BloomThat or Farmgirl Flowers to brighten her home (and day!). If you’re really close, consider encouraging her in a (not so) subtle way to ditch the bra she’s worn for the past three years and upgrade to something a bit more her speed, like our 24/7 Lace Balconette Bra in a new hue for spring.
3. Get a head start on your spring cleaning.
Typically reserved for March or April, spring cleaning is a cathartic experience that rolls around every year. And, we can pretty much guarantee that you have unworn clothes in your closet, beauty products under your sink that haven’t seen daylight in years, and tons of bras and underwear you no longer wear.
Check out our blog post on Closet Cleanout Tips before you jump in headfirst, but consider donating and selling items you no longer use this weekend. Apps and websites like Poshmark, ThredUP, and The RealReal make it easy to sell clothes online without leaving the comfort of your home.
No matter what you’re doing this weekend, we hope it’s a great one!
