With the holiday season right around the corner, as much as most of us enjoy our family time, we can often feel helpless with the thought of keeping it together on the home front. As I was de-junking my garage this week (an ongoing project), the thought of fantastic timesavers popped into my mind to share with you all. When a home’s organization is a little more well-planned, you can save hours each year in gained time and energy. Also, homes that are organized and well-maintained also give greater perceived value overall. You can click my link from the Washington Post below to read more on this.
If you have a place in your home where you can put up a few hooks for things, this makes it so easy to just look, grab and run. Some rooms/hallways even have a space for cubbies/baskets. Taking a wooden bookshelf with square cubes can even be turned horizontally to create more organized space. And for me, well, I’m “hooked” on hooks!
2. Everything needs a home
From drawers, closets, to baskets, storing things in their proper place at the end of the day can save time also.
Buy a label maker, or, at best, tape index cards with item names onto pantry and office shelves, etc. From spare light bulbs and batteries, to pasta, to first aid kits, you can save time and money by knowing what is already on hand.
4. Keep “Staple” Items on Hand
For groceries, keep some basic soups, frozen veggies, rice, pasta, on your shelves at all times. It’s healthier than eating out, saves you time, and knowing that even if you are tired, you can pull a meal together quickly.
5. Planning Ahead
From putting reminders on your i-phone, fridge calendar and Google calendar, to making lunches/setting out clothes for the next day, mornings and days can be much more hassle free.
THE GREAT “8” TIME SAVING TIPS!
I hope this helps you all with some of the little things so that your home, and your life may be blessed with more simplicity.
