10 Random Time-Saving Tips

10 Random Time-Saving Tips

For today's post I want to offer up some random time savers. These are all things that I do, I use, and I swear by. Hopefully one of them (or more) provides you a solution to a pesky problem you've been having! Cheers!

Tip #1:  Who says Ziplock baggies are good just for storing left-over foods? Use them to store bits and pieces of office supplies, children's toys, hardware screws, nuts and bolts…. the possibilities abound!

Tip #2:  Invest in a label-maker. The P-Touch is a great brand. Everything just looks more finished when it is labeled!

Tip #3:  A small accordion file provides a great way to keep your home or business receipts organized. Go through them once a month and it will help you stay on track with budgeting your spending.

Need a declutter-plan? Here are some key steps for making a plan to organize the piles of clutter in your life:

Step 1: Make a declutter-plan. Schedule time and gather your supplies.

First of all, block out a specific amount of time you think you can handle for your first initial sort. For example: a standard clothes closet: 2 hours; a kitchen pantry: 1.5 hours; a garage: 4 hours.

Because setting a realistic and specific goal before you start will help improve your odds of success. Do you have time to finish the whole room? Can you reach everything on the top shelf without the ladder you don’t currently have? Do you need to ask for help or can you command this mission solo?
