It’s October again and your local café where you always hangout at will start selling pumpkin spice latte to combat the cooler weather. However, you might not feel like leaving the house at times. Not when its sweater weather and sleeping in every morning just seems to be more tempting as the temperature drops lower.

We’re here to spice up your days and leave you feeling satisfied with what you’ll be doing in October. It doesn’t have to be a lazy month anymore when there are so many things out there that you can do without going too far away from the comforts of home.


1. Have a House Makeover

We’re not talking about renovating your house or buying new furniture. Those take too long and certainly cost too much. What you can do without breaking the piggy bank is adding little bits of accessories to complement the mood of the room.

Print a motivational poster and hang it up in your living room so you can see it every morning when you leave home and get that extra mood booster for the day. Place a cushion on your couch with the face of your pet printed on it for a unique decoration piece.

2. Donate to Local Shelters

Seasons come and go just like fashion trends. While some of us are lucky enough to be able to afford new clothes to accommodate the season, some may have to go by with rags on their backs the whole year. It’s time to go through our closets and sift through clothes we’ve barely worn these few months.

When was the last time you wore that red shirt? Or even that striped blouse? If the answer is not recently and the clothes are still in good condition, why not send them over to a local shelter? There’s a homeless shelter right in the heart of KL that is open for donations. Visit their Facebook page here.


3. Visit Your Friend

Of course, the best way to spend time is to spend it together with someone else. Especially for those of us who are single, instead of huddling up at home alone, why not arrange a sleepover at your buddy’s? Laze around together and catch up on the latest gossip.

Drink hot tea together in the kitchen while chatting up a storm. You never know what surprises your friend may spring on you since the last time you met. With no appointments to chase and no errands to run, you can spend quality time together.

October is the season to be warming up each other and Printcious would like to wish everyone a very cozy autumn ahead!
