#46 – HAVE A PLACE FOR EVERYTHING
If you can create a place for everything in your home then you will know exactly where it is when you need it (as long as you get into the habit of also putting it back when finished!).
#47 – USE A SLOW COOKER
A great way to save time is to get something to do the cooking for you while you are out and about each day.
#48 – SUBSCRIBE AND SAVE
Subscribing to things means less time shopping each month.
Whether it be magazines, medicine or other things, see what you can subscribe to and save some time!
#49 – CLEAN THE BATHROOM WHEN YOU ARE IN THERE ANYWAY…
Why not clean the bathroom when you are bathing the kids?! – you have to be in there but there’s nothing stopping you wiping things down at the same time….
#50 – EXERCISE AT HOME
Save time on the trip to the gym and you’ll have exercised before you’d normally have even arrived!
#51 – MAKE EXERCISE A PART OF YOUR DAY
Walk more, use the stairs, squat while the kettle boils – it all adds up and takes away the need to find time for a dedicated exercise slot.
#52 – BUY CARDS IN BULK
Have a list of all events that you need to buy for over the coming months and get them all on one trip to the shops.
#53 – RECORD YOUR TV
Time wasting is at an all time high when it comes to watching adverts. Recording your TV means you can get that time back by fast forwarding through them instead.
#54 – IRON LESS
Be selective over what you iron – question if it really needs doing at all.
#55 – WASH LESS
In much the same way as ironing – make sure you only wash clothes that really need a wash. Sometimes it’s all too easy to throw your clothes into the wash when they can be worn at least once more – but washing them less often means much less laundry time!
#56 – SHOWER NOT BATH
Baths take a lot more time – and you can have a lovely long shower to still feel really pampered!
#57 – QUICK WASH FUNCTIONS
If you use your quick wash functions on your dishwasher and washing machine you can still get things clean but save lots of time in the process (most things we wash aren’t really really dirty most of the time!).
#58 – QUICKEST ROUTE?
Make sure you are using the quickest route and transport to get where you need to each day. Would taking the train be easier than driving?, have you taken the same route to work each day but not checked it for a while?
#59 – USE YOUR MICROWAVE
I cook vegetables in the microwave more often than not as it’s so quick and easy to do, and keeps all the nutrients in tact. You can also par cook jacket potatoes which is a massive time saver.
So – that’s it!
59 time saving tips that should save time every week – easily!
