Make life a little less hectic by following these time-saving tips:
1 - Lists. I can't emphasize lists enough. To-do lists, checklists, goals lists, birthdays lists, grocery lists, "songs I heard and want to buy lists..." You can even make a list of the lists. If you want to remember something, put it on a list and look at it frequently.
2 - Only buy what's on your shopping list. This will make the trip shorter and probably reduce how much you spend. It will also improve your list-making.
3 - Keep a key bowl near the front door. Think of the times you've been in a hurry and can't find your keys... this can help.
4 - Cook large quantities, then pre-portion and freeze. Now you have appropriately portioned meals that can be heated in the microwave quickly.
5 - Listen to audiobooks. You can learn a lot while you drive, clean, or workout.
