A Few Time Savers

I’m all about saving time. As a busy woman, I employ every time saving technique I can conceive. I decided to share a few of my time savers with you today.

My husband and I only see each other three days a week. He works nights, and I work days. He goes to bed an hour or two before my alarm goes off. I get home a couple hours after he leaves for work. Since we both work full-time and have other responsibilities on top our jobs and home life, we handle household chores as a team.

One of the ways I shave a half hour here and there is by strategic laundry. I often put a load of laundry in the washer before I get in the shower of a morning. By the time I’m finished showering, the clothes are clean and ready for the dryer. I toss them in the dryer before I leave for work. I don’t leave laundry in the washer because it can sour, and we sure don’t need to deal with that smell.

My husband folds or hangs up the laundry when he starts his day in the afternoon. He usually washes and dries his uniform before he goes to work. Sometimes he washes another load and leaves it in the dryer for me to take care of when I get home from work.

Another time saver is planning meals ahead. On my good days, I have a plan. I take any frozen food I want to cook for dinner for the next day out of the freezer and defrost it in the fridge.

I also figure out what I’m eating for lunch the night before and gather everything. The next morning all I have to do is drop my food in my lunch bag, and I’m ready to run out the door.

I’m too particular about my groceries to use curbside pickup or delivery, but I do the majority of my shopping at non-peak times. Crowded stores give me heart palpitations. I reduce shopping time by buying a lot of my supplies at places like Dollar General where I can get in and get out quickly.

Braum’s is another of my favorite places where I can get in and out in a flash. I run in when I need milk, bread, cheese, ice cream, or other simple things. They carry a wonderful, reasonably priced low-carb bread that tastes great, so I shop there at least every other week.

There are many ways to save time. I’ve only shared a few with you today. I’d love to hear some of your favorite time savers. Thank you for reading Ozarks Maven!
