Do you ever end your day a little (or very) frazzled, wondering where the day went. And feeling like you didn’t have time to do anything, let alone brush your teeth until noon! We have had many days like this especially when you are caring for a newborn, but there are ways to maximize your time during the day so that your day runs more smoothly. It all comes down to preparation. So, here are a few tips on what we do to maximize our time.

  1. Set your clothes for the next day, the night before.
  2. Tidy up the house before your go to bed, at least the kitchen.
  3. 5-minute face in the morning. Head straight to the bathroom right when you wake up so that you can get yourself together and be ready for the day.
  4. Run the dishwasher when you go to bed so that they will be ready and clean in the morning. Then after each meal rinse and put dishes in dishwasher and repeat all over again.
  5. Clean up while you cook.
  6. During naps; dinner prep., tidy, relax!
  7. For more ways to maximize your time check out 50 ways to do everything better and faster! I’m all over that!

We hope that these tips help and that you are able to use your time more effectively. The most important thing that we can give our children is our time. Our philosophy is that our kids won’t remember how clean the house is, but how much time we spent with them. So, drop the mop and pick up a crayon! lol

Let us know if you have any problems managing your time or other time management tips.
