Visiting your local library or nearby bookstore may not be an option, but that doesn’t mean you’re stuck with the contents of your bookshelf. E-reader owners have access to thousands of free titles on Project Gutenberg, where you can read directly from your laptop or download a book to your Kindle or Tablet. Many Books also offers free ebooks which you can browse by genre.
3. Get Creative
When it gets too cold for sledding and building snowmen, bring the kids inside for educational activities disguised as arts and crafts. Inkjet Willy, a comparative marketplace for ink cartridges, has a blogpost with free teacher printables featuring games, worksheets and activities that are perfect for a day at home.

4. Do a Deep Clean
Spring feels pretty far away on a snow day, but there’s no better time to get a head start on spring cleaning. By dusting surfaces, scrubbing floors and vacuuming baseboards, you can postpone your cleaning service for a month and save some money. Better yet, make your own cleaning products from scratch with household products like vinegar, baking soda and even baby oil.
5. Collect Clutter for Cash
If cleaning doesn’t inspire you, maybe the prospect of making money will. A snow day represents a great time to go through your closets, junk drawers and storage areas in search of items to sell. We all have too much clutter and much of it can be sold online. For example, clothing can be consigned at RecycleYourFashions.com; miscellaneous items can be posted on eBay; and even gift cards can be sold for cash at GiftCardGranny.com.
6. Organize a Potluck
After a day or two spent indoors, you’ll be eager for some company or a change of scenery. Organize a potluck dinner with your neighbors and prepare a dish from groceries you dutifully stockpiled before the storm. What better way to show off your newly-cleaned house and get some much-needed social stimulation?
