Blog: Busy Moms Can Be Organized Too

It's officially Summer! This is a great time to consolidate your efforts to save time and energy so you can enjoy all those Summer activities.

Here are some quick tips you can use starting today:

Shop for groceries once rather than three or four times a week. Plan out a menu for the week and do it all at once. It will not only save you time and energy, it will save you gas! You would be surprised how those trips to the grocery store can add up.

Iron a bunch of items at one time rather than one at a time. It takes time to pull out that iron and ironing board and set it up to iron. Gather the items you have laundered for the week and do it all at once. It will also save you time when you go to get dressed in the morning. You will not have to take time to iron that particular item; it will already have been pressed and ready to go! Also, cut down on your ironing time by pulling items right from the warm dryer and hanging them immediately. The warmth from the dryer will release a lot of those wrinkles on their own, saving you time.

Double a recipe and freeze half for another time. When making dinner, double it and store the additional amount for another meal. Over the course of time, you will have built up an array of dinner options and all you will have to do is defrost them and heat them up. This will save lots of time on those nights when there is just a short amount of time to put dinner on the table.

Lastly, buy all the birthday and other special-occasion cards and gifts you need one month in advance. Sit down with your calendar and figure out whose birthday is coming up the next month and plan to purchase a card and perhaps a gift. Planning out what you need for when will save you time and effort. When the day arrives, you will be ready!

Hope these tips will help you enjoy more of your time this Summer and throughout the rest of the year.
