We can all agree that time is something there is never enough of. This year, why not resolve to save time by incorporating a few new habits into your life? With the back to school season approaching, it’s almost as if we are given a reset button. New routines and schedules start, and we can make small changes to save time each and every day.

You can get almost everything scheduled for home delivery these days, but now, Grove Collaborative is shipping all-natural home and body products to your front door at discounted prices.

The company will introduce you to new brands along the way, so you still get the feeling of shopping, but you won’t waste time at the store.

I love receiving my frequent shipments since I can count on fresh sponges and other household favorites on my schedule.
Hire help. Whether you need a virtual assistant to increase your productivity at work, a babysitter to take care of the kids so you can get more done, or a housekeeper to clean so you can spend that time more wisely, this is the year to ask for help! It’s 2016: you don’t need permission to pay people to help you so that you can work smarter, not harder!
Plan meals ahead. For many busy women, cooking is just another chore…and it usually falls at a time of day when we’re already hungry and tired. This leads to quick and often unhealthy choices. If you pick a day to plan your meals and grocery shopping in advance, cooking will be painless. Designate a day to choose your recipes, make a grocery shopping list, and get the needed items, so you can spend any free time you have during the rest of the week on more important things.
Take advantage of slow cookers. When meal planning, make several of your choices slow cooker recipes, so dinner can essentially cook itself (or you can designate meal prep to hubby or older kids).
Prioritize and don’t be afraid to say no. Take a good look at your to-do list. Number the items in order of importance. This is the hard part: Don’t add anything else to that list if you can help it! There’s no shame in saying no to additional invitations, activities for the kids or non-essential requests for help. Daily self-care should be a non-negotiable on that to-do list, even if it’s 15 minutes a day (a walk, reading a book or magazine, mediation, etc.). If you get sick or burn out, think of all the time and productivity you’ll lose.
What would you add to this list? How will you save time this fall?
