Big Fat Time Savers!

  1. Buy pre-cooked food at the grocery store deli. More expensive, but your time is worth it.
  2. Lay out clothes for self and kid before going to bed. Good theory, and when I do it I'm really happy.
  3. Tape a "don't forget" note to the door before bed, i.e. "don't forget bagels for a..m. meeting."
  4. Hire a housekeeper to come in once a week to do floors, dusting, etc. Even if she or he is lousy, it's probably better than you could do some weeks.
  5. Take Detrol-LA. Save time on those pesky potty breaks.
  6. Keep your emergency pickup kid people on call. If I know I have a late meeting on Wednesday and Husband is out of town, I call around on Tuesday for someone to be on call just in case. Put these numbers on your speed dial.
  7. Take your lunch or at least get it to go...sneak into the nurse's breakroom with a stack of charts and eat while charting.
  8. When people offer to help you, take them up on it.
  9. Brush your teeth in the shower while conditioning your hair.
  10. Marry the right mate...a co-parent, co-shopper, partner in all things domestic.

  1. Agree with #10, wholeheartedly! I'll have to try brushing teeth in the shower. Good List!
