If you are looking for more time and/or a less complicated lifestyle- here are a few tips that might be helpful:
*Let go of the idea that everything has to be perfect.
*Pay your bills online.
*Keep a stash of blank notecards on hand - these can work for any occasion and save you a trip to the store.
*A mid-week cleanup of bathrooms is easy if you keep an all-purpose cleaner and paper towels underneath each sink in your house.
*Enclose necessary coupons, gift cards, etc in an envelope and use the front of the envelope as your shopping list.
*Sort through your mail on daily basis.
*Reclaim some kitchen cabinet or counter space by getting rid of those rarely, if ever used gadgets like the bread machine, food sealer, pasta maker, etc.
*Limit your decorative knick knacks to help make dusting the house much easier.
*Cancel subscriptions to catalogs that you can view online.
*If you are using an item occasionally, consider borrowing it instead of buying it.
*Every season, go through clothes and shoes and donate when possible.
*Wipe down shelves in the fridge before you grocery shop. This makes it easier to make a shopping list.
*When planning your day, try to avoid scheduling in every minute.
*When you use something, put it back where it belongs.
*Schedule time for yourself. Get it on the calendar or it will not happen.
*Pack non-perishables into your kid's lunch boxes the night before. This saves a few minutes in the morning.
*Stop unnecessary volunteering and don't feel guilty about it.
*Create a "to do" list everyday. This can help keep you from getting distracted.
*Learn to delegate.
