How have you been passing the days in quarantine? The answer for a lot of people is alternating crying, baking, and watching porn. Some folks have now moved on to slightly more productive activities that can be done in the home, like cleaning. All the overstuffed closest, junk drawers, and unpacked boxes are getting explored after being avoided for years. This quarantine might actually get people’s households in order for the first time ever.
Most people are finding expired coupons and dead batteries, but a few folks have been turning up treasures. Not all treasures have monetary value, but walks down memory lane are the only walks we’re really able to go on, so they’re still pretty awesome.
Here are some of the best quarantine cleaning finds we’ve found on social media. Maybe they’ll inspire you to dust out the cobwebs.

My dad is doing some quarantine cleaning and found some old newspapers. Together the Daily Mail and Morning Herald combined to become the Herald-Mail. Pictured is a 5 cent paper from Feb. 3 1958, a 50 cent paper from my 3rd birthday (3/20/03) and yesterday’s paper. pic.twitter.com/TBQCh4WXRM
