ways to save time #7 and #8

Time truly is the deciding factor. We all have to recognize the fact that we cannot slow it down nor can we speed it up. We all have the same amount of time--365 days in each year and only 24 hours in each day.

In the end, it is all about personal choice. We all have the right to choose how we will spend our time. If you want to have more time for the things you enjoy, keep reading all week long for lots of tips that will save you lots of time!

Time saving tip # 7: A consistent spot for must- needed, everyday items

A. Do you know how much time people spend/waste looking for everyday items?

B. Everyday or essential items should be kept in the same spot every day. For example, place your keys and cell phone in the same location so when you need to grab them tomorrow, you will know exactly where to find them. You might want a table, basket, or tray where you can leave these items and empty your pockets daily. The kid's homework, shoes, and book bags need to have a home.

Time saving tip # 8: Post and use a family calendar

A. An earlier tip suggests using one of many websites to set up an electronic calendar; this may not work for every family. So if it doesn't then you will need to use a paper calendar or one designed on a wall using chalkboard or magnetic paint.

B. Make sure it is in a central location where everyone can see it and use it.

C. Make sure all appointments, meetings, get-togethers, after-school activities are put on the calendar. Transfer over to a pocket calendar, organizer, electronic organizer or even leave yourself a voice mail on your cell phone.
