People all around the nation are currently practicing social distancing, self-isolation, and shelter in place to help stop the spread of COVID-19. While we may still be fighting the pandemic, for some of us, it's still business as usual. We have to work, our kids have to go "school," and we have to find creative ways to make being at home 24/7 easier. Use the list below for some ideas on how you can use your Table-Mate while you're stuck at home.
- Set up a craft station.
Want to turn lemons into lemonade? Many people are using their time at home as an opportunity to let their creative juices flow. Maybe you want to try your hand at painting, sculpting, or drawing? The Table-Mate XL has 46% more space than the original Table-Mate making it the ideal spot for you to set up all your art supplies and start creating your next masterpiece.
- Make a smaller space feel less crowded.
Shelter in place becomes more challenging when you're trying to make a comfortable work and peaceful living space out of a smaller area. Use the Table-Mate II in tighter spaces for additional workspace without overcrowding the room. Use in small spaces to get work done, do homework, or make a cutting station in a smaller kitchen. When you're done, simply fold up the table and put in a closet, under the sofa, or behind a door for easy, out of the way storage.
- Create the perfect homeschool space.
If you're the parent of a small school-aged child, overnight, you've turned from mom or dad into a preschool teacher. Use the Table-Mate 4 Kids to set up a designated learning area for your child. This smaller version of the original Table-Mate is comfortable for young kids to learn and play. The table is equipped with a child-size chair and makes learning, snack time, playtime, and reading time a breeze.
- Take your work outside.
If you're yearning for some fresh air, take your laptop outside on the balcony or to the back yard and prop it up with your Table-Mate. Need extra space for your coffee? The Table-Mate Ultra is equipped with a built-in cup holder and can comfortably fit a laptop up to 15in. Get all of your work done outside and place your tech devices safely in the holder.
- Use the Table-Mate for video calls.
So many of us are either having conference calls, work meetings, birthday parties, or happy hours on video chat platforms like Zoom, Hangouts, Skype, and more. Sitting in your bed or on a table chair while on video calls can wreak havoc on your neck and back. Use the Table-Mate to hold your laptop, smartphone, or tablet so you can chat anywhere around the house. Sit on your favorite chair or take a seat on the sofa and bring the video call to you.
- Make breakfast in bed for your special someone.
Is your partner celebrating a birthday during quarantine, or maybe it's your anniversary. While date night is definitely out, that doesn't mean you can't make them a memorable breakfast in bed. Use the Table-Mate to bring them the ultimate morning feast. Don't worry about crumbs or spills in bed. The Table-Mate's big enough to fit all of your eggs, bacon, pancakes, OJ, coffee, or whatever your preferred breakfast foods are.
