19 Stuck At Home activities designed to bust the boredom. Millions of people are now at home and looking for activities beyond hours of watching Netflix, television and streaming programs.
When the Associated Press filed this report, “What Now? Facing Life Without the Entertainment World,” and mentioned our photo scanning service to help many complete long-overlooked projects we got an idea. If you are stuck at home, what are other tasks and projects to keep busy?
We are compiling and adding to this list of projects and activities if you are #WFH (working from home), #SFH (studying from home), or just stuck at home to remedy cabin fever. Join in as we are seeking your input for other ideas.
For everyone at home, rather than just watching Netflix, spend time with your family. Uncover all your decades of nostalgic snapshots and view your own pictures after ScanMyPhotos.com digitizes all. To help, we added one-cent photo scanning (10,000 pictures digitized this fast) for as low as $100, same-day scanning, and instant uploading add-ons to quickly view your memories as soon as it is scanned.
We are also working to lessen the burden on the U.S. Postal Service and other delivery carriers. We highly recommend you select instant uploading so your pictures are returned online once digitized. We will mail your photos back afterward, once it is safe to do so.
For families stuck at home, this photo archivist project should also be shared with distant relatives and friends to laugh, get emotional — celebrate your history as a distraction from the news. At ScanMyPhotos.com, 78% of all online photo scanning orders are now due to families stuck at home yearning to complete long procrastinated projects.
