What is the biggest time saver tip?
Time is one of the most precious resources we have. And like it or not, every single one of us is given only 24 hours in a day. How you choose to use that time will determine how much time you have for other important activities, like sleeping, working, playing and spending time with family and friends.
So how do you save time? Well, if you have the resources, you could delegate out some of your duties. Unfortunately, most of us don’t have the ability to hire someone for that kind of help. Fortunately, you are probably wasting precious time every day and you don’t even realize it…
Have you ever lost your keys? And how long did you look for them? A minute or two? Or maybe it took you 20 minutes or worse, and hour and a half to find them! No judgement here, I used to have the same problem.
The biggest time saver is simply: A place for everything!
Must of us have heard the old expression “a place for everything, and everything in it’s place”. But how many of us actually follow that advice? During my lifetime, sometimes I had a place for everything, and other times I didn’t.
Guess which times were the most enjoyable for me? Yep, the times I had a place for everything and actually kept my things where they belonged!
It might seem like taking the time to organize everything won’t be worth all of the work necessary to accomplish the task. But it is!
Here are some of the benefits of am organized home:
- Organized items take up much less space than unorganized items
- No need to waste precious time looking for items, you know right where they are at all times.
- In an emergency, you know right where to find every item. Think about how important it is to find your keys right away if someone got hurt!
- Organized areas create a more peaceful setting and has a calming effect on the mind
- An organized home is more enjoyable to look at and spend your time
Having a place for everything doesn’t need to be a monumental undertaking. You can tackle the task as a weekend project and get your whole house or several rooms organized. Or you can take things slower, working on 1 room or area of a room at a time.
You get to decide how organized you want to become. I love being very organized! If I had my way, everything in my home would be organized, even my socks! But not everyone enjoys that level of organization. And even though I would love to be that organized, it just wouldn’t be practical for my home.
