morning-routineIf you and your sweetie have to both be up and out early in the morning every day, don’t crowd each other.

Take turns in the bathroom. While you’re in the shower he can be preparing breakfast and coffee for the two of you, and while he’s touching up his shave you can be preparing your lunches.

You can both come out ahead if you double up on the things you do to help each other out working as a team. If you have school age children, take a few minutes to pack lunches and gather books the night before.

Remember to take turns so that you both save time rather than one of you saving time and the other always ending up rushed and late!

clothes-on-bedSaving time calls for organization. I fix my lunch and prepare my child’s lunch the night before so there is more time in the morning to prepare breakfast and get my child and myself ready for the day.

I organize my bag and paperwork to take to the office the night before as well as lay out my child’s bag and anything she needs to take to school the night before. I lay out my clothes including undergarments as well as my child’s clothes and undergarments so there is no time wasted on trying to decide what to wear. Read the rest of this entry »

shower_nightOne of my most cherished time saving habits (I have a few) is to take a shower in the evening so that I do not have to worry about getting a shower in the morning. This saves me the five to ten minutes that are required to get a good shower (in my opinion). All there is to do in the morning is to wake up, do the normal daily hygiene acts–such as brushing teeth, deodorant, flossing, etc.–get dressed, and I am on my way.

For a while I did not think I was a morning person and needed the shower to wake up but once I started doing it, it became pretty normal. I have make sure I lay out the clothes that I plan to wear the next day just to save myself some more time, as I just have to roll out of bed, throw my clothes on and do the hygiene thing as soon as I wake up.

This is my favorite time saving habit that I have for when I wake up in the morning. It has saved me at least ten to fifteen minutes of sleep every morning and is something that I am glad I picked up.
