Slowly but surely, the days are getting longer as we get closer to spring – which has us thinking about ways we can use those extra few minutes of sunlight. Even if you only have five minutes, there are lots of little things you can do to make your home just a bit cozier.

1. Light a candle. Create instant ambiance simply by lighting a candle. We’re particularly fond of these soothing scents by Caldrea (for other Caldrea products, visit

2. Add throw pillows. Placing a throw pillow or two onto your bed or sofa is an easy way to make your home cozier. If you’re feeling creative, why not repurpose an old sweater and make a pillowcase? You can also find a large selection of throw pillows on our website – and they’re on sale, too!

3. Put up pictures. Hang a few framed photos in your hallway to make your place seem a bit more homey. For easy tips on creating a mini-gallery in your home, check out the ideas on Pinterest!

4. Make a batch of cookies. Although this takes a little longer than five minutes, what could be better than the aroma of homemade baked goods? If you’re in the mood for something chocolatey, Real Simple has a fabulous collection of recipes.

5. Purchase a house plant. Not only do houseplants add a lush accent, they also purify the air, which is especially important during the winter months. Southern Living has great tips on selecting the houseplant that’s right for you.
