After a busy day you want to enjoy the evening, but unfortunately you can also run a household. Don’t panic, because we give you tips to save some time every day. From now on every night is yours. Delicious, right?
Stopping that hour in a traffic jam is literally lost time. Choose a GPS with an internet connection that anticipates traffic jams, making it easier to get around them. Gone with stress to be late and that extra fifteen minutes of sleep is more than welcome.
Do your online shopping
It is usually very busy in the supermarket in the evenings and on weekends. Fill your virtual shopping cart online during your lunch break at work and you can pick everything up quickly on the way home – without having to sit down.
Commuter? Answer your mails on the go
Nothing is as difficult as opening your mailbox in the morning and then writing reply messages a whole morning. Open your smartphone or laptop on the train, bus or metro and fly in immediately. This way you save a lot of time and you can relax in the evening.
Invest in a dishwasher
With this tip you not only save a lot of time, but you also help the environment. You use less water and nothing is more fun than coming home to a clean house. In the morning you load it full and when you return, everything is clean. Enjoy!
Freeze meals in advance
We have to be realistic: in Belgium there is at least one day a week when the weather gods don’t like us. Use this day to finely chop a large bowl of soup, a stew or simply vegetables and freeze them in small portions. This way you can cook tasty but fast every day.
Pay your bills via direct debit
You leave on vacation and oops, you forgot to pay the electricity bill. And maybe the internet too? Unfortunately, you can no longer use the transfer form and you have a whole week in your head. Not a disaster in itself, but you can opt for a better solution. Give your bank permission to withdraw the amount due from your account. Goodbye headaches!
Hang your clothes outside to dry: ironing done
Is there a strong breeze blowing through the garden? Hang your T-shirts, pants and even shirts on a clothes hanger in the wind. An hour later you bring them in without wrinkles. If that time is not lost?
Place your plants in a large water bowl
Whoever does this no longer has to water his plants every day because once or twice a week is enough. When you come home and finally fall down in your garden chair, your garden shines with you.
Get rid of procrastination
Do not postpone tasks that only take five minutes: if you have to remember them and then perform them again, you will lose more time. Make short work of it, so your head is immediately empty. A carefree summer: doesn’t that sound good?
Make a smart shopping list
Put a notebook permanently in your kitchen and write down what you need from the supermarket. Group your list into categories: fruit and vegetables, meat and fish, frozen foods, and so on. So at the end of your list you no longer have to run to the entrance. Time saved, only.
