While we are all still maintaining stay-home life, bread has been baked, you’ve reached your threshold for Zoom happy hours, and you might feel like you’re out of things to occupy yourself with. No worries, the TU team is in the same boat, which is why we’re rounding up ideas for fun things to do at home.

thredUP’s The Great Puzzle Pop-UP? Yep, it’s happening! Because you can only complete that cat puzzle 4 times before it gets weird. And because we heard that puzzles are harder to find than TP right now. We’re using our know-how to find new homes for puzzles everywhere. How it works: you can send puzzles, or you can buy puzzles for $4.99 and we’ll donate $5 to Feeding America!

We’re stuck to screens more than ever, so putting in some offline time is ALWAYS good. For page-turning recommendations, we asked our team to BYOB (bring your own book) to our last virtual meeting. Take a look at what we’re reading, as well as must-read stuff from your fellow thrifters too!
