Time Saving Tips

As we head into Daylight Savings Time, we were inspired to put into writing some of our favorite tips.  These will come in handy over the next couple of months as we all juggle home, office and the holidays!

Begin by managing your time!  Being organized about tasks which need to get accomplished is crucial to the success of your day.  Meeting deadlines is key in your business, and maintaining calm in the household is equally important.

Make "To Do" lists.  Following a list and setting priorities on that list will help you plan your day, week and month.  This will result in managing your time most effectively.

Have proper "homes" for items in your home and office.  Being neat and clutter free is achievable if items have a proper home--i.e. a place to put them that makes sense to you the next time you will look for them.  Do you know the average person spends 10 to 30 minutes a day looking for lost items?  Wouldn't you love to have that time back?  Try specific homes for keys, phones, kid's homework, library books, etc.  Stick to these locations and save a lot of time and aggravation.  Remember, it only takes 2-3 weeks to learn a new habit!  Give it a try and see for yourself!

If you own a "smart phone", these apps may help you save time and money!  Recommended by Jean Chatzky in the AARP magazine, these following apps can be very helpful:  Red Laser (compares pricing at other stores using bar codes); Slice (organizes on-line shopping emails/receipts all in one place); Coupon Sherpa (find coupons and show your phoe at check out); Key Ring (register your loyalty cards so you won't need them on your key chain); and Waze (identifies traffic jams and how to get around them).

Try implementing just one of these tips in the next month and you will experience time savings.  Use them all and you should have time to reward yourself with something fun!

We are both thankful for our good health, our families, our loyal readers, and our rewarding business.  Take a few minutes to reflect on all that you are thankful for and celebrate them at Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving,

Muffy & JoEllen
