Time Management in Life

Saving time around the house is equally important as saving time at a place of paid employment. The pressures are often just as high and the responsibilities are frequently more diverse. Try the following suggestions to increase your efficiency at home.
Shopping, outings and household delegating
• Keep a family diary by the telephone for recording all commitments and essential information (e.g school holidays, evenings out, dinner guests, overnight visitors and other special events).
• Find a handy spot in the kitchen for recording shopping items and record them as you run out.
• When planning your shopping trip, organize your list according to the layout of the goods in the shop.
• Delegate the shopping to the older children (if present) and reward them for work well done.
• Delegate dish washing and other household chores to older children. Use a roster system if convenient.
The family car
• Place a keyboard near your most used exit door for hanging car keys. Place a spare set in a safe place elsewhere in the home and perhaps one in a magnetized case under a mud guard or behind the license plate for when your regular set goes missing.
• For child pickup and delivery, try to organize a car pool so that others share the driving time.
Household time savers
• Place a small table or shelf near your most used exit door for depositing things which must be taken elsewhere.
• Place another small table near the bottom of your stairs for depositing items which must be taken upstairs.
• Arrange a convenient hanging line in the laundry so that drip dry articles can be hung up as soon as they are taken from the washing machine or dryer.
• Place a storage cupboard next to the water heater or dryer for keeping items which must be maintained in dry conditions.
• Carry a handy basket with you as you tidy the house so that misplaced items can be collected in one trip. Encourage family members to be responsible for their own possessions.
• In order to salve your conscience about very sloppy and disorganized children’s bedrooms, place a sign on each bedroom door: The orderliness of this bedroom is the sole responsibility of (name of child).
• Cook in large quantities and freeze one-person portions for the occasional late meal.
• In order to ease the morning rush, make children responsible for their own time. If they dawdle before school, let them be late and suffer the consequences. They will learn if they are made responsible for their own behavior.
Managing television time
• Read the program guide and mark interesting shows with a highlighting pen.
• Realize that turning on the television set takes very little personal energy, but turning it off can pose a considerable challenge.
• Try standing when you want to watch only the news or other short programs.
• For longer shows, set the oven timer or a wrist alarm to go off at the end of the program. Move away from the set when the alarm sounds.
• For the ultra-weak who find the TV set too alluring, place the set in a very unappealing place, such as in a storage room with no seats or in a musty basement. Make TV watching difficult or even aversive.
• The definition solutions for TV addicts-sell the set, give it away or even place your boot through the tube.
