8 Ways To Make The Most Out Of Spending Spring Break At Home

Your friends might be going fancy places for spring break, but their bank accounts are suffering.

While you are home, why not make the most of it?

1. Remember how much money you are saving

Take a moment to realize just how much money you are saving yourself. Your friends might be going fancy places for spring break, but their bank accounts are suffering. Yours isn't so at least that's a plus.

2. Spend time with family

For most of us, spring break is the first time in weeks we are actually able to go home for longer than just a quick weekend trip. So why not spend time with the people who have been missing you the most while you have been away. Family time is important and this is the perfect time to catch up on lost time.

3. Catch up on school work

School doesn't end just because spring break has begun, so why not take a day or two to catch up on school work, or even get ahead. Nothing sucks more than getting back from break and realizing the deadlines for assignments and tests are coming up quicker than expected. Take some time to get ahead.

4. Reunite with your hometown friends

Going to a different school from the people that you hung out with before college isn't fun and makes things hard. Why not spend time with the people that have been there from day one. Go have a coffee take, shopping spree or go on adventures with the people who you miss most while away.

5. Have some much needed "me time"

Being in college means that you never have any free time or time just relax and pamper yourself, and spring break is the perfect time to treat yourself. Go get your nails done or go shopping, me time is important and you should take advantage of all the free time you have because you will miss it once you head back to school.

6. Complete that task you have been putting off for so long

We all have that one thing we have to get done, but use the excuse of "I'm too busy" and never complete it. Make use of your time and get any tasks that you have been putting off, done. You'll thank yourself later.

7. Work

This might be the last thing you want to do on your week off, but who doesn't want a little extra spending money to bring back to school?

8. Organize your life

Whether this is done figuratively or literally, nothing feels better than getting yourself and the things around you in order.
