After sleeping, working, commuting, exercising and maintaining personal hygiene, what’s left? Exhaustion! And if you have a family and kids to care for? Forget about it! To have a life outside of what you need to get done you’re going to need to delegate. So, here are some simple tips to save time in your day.
Have Groceries Delivered
Most grocery stores recorded over 150% increase in their grocery delivery services in the new COVID-19 normal, with some of them reporting a 500% increase. Seems like many of us got used to the time saving convenience of shopping from home. And why not? It makes a lot of sense to avoid the hordes and get the job done without the sensory overload of a packed supermarket. More places deliver now, and it can be used to your advantage to save time. The average person spends 41 minutes at the supermarket per trip. So ask yourself, how much time are you wasting at the supermarket every week?
Hire A Cleaning Service
Speaking of a ridiculous amount of time spent doing not-fun things. Cleaning. The time you spend on cleaning can vary depending upon the size of your house and family, and how fastidious you are. On any given day we sleep, work, cook and clean as a minimum. Then there is renewing the insurance etc, perhaps some time on furthering your education for a new opportunity. Plus it’s hairwashing night. Then little Johnny has a science project due tomorrow that he forgot to tell you about. How much time is left just to catch your breath? Probably none at all. Luckily, cleaning services can help no matter where you live. Best of all, it can get done when you’re not at home as if by magic. We don’t need to tell you that life is way too short to spend it on your knees scrubbing bathrooms if you don’t have to.
Dog Walking Services
During the recent pandemic, dog adoptions increased an extraordinary amount. ASPCA reports that 1 in 5 households worldwide adopted a dog. As we move past COVID and get back to the office though, there has been an increase in anxiety in pets that are used to having their owners at home. One way to combat this is to make sure your dog is taken care of during the day by hiring a dog walking service or utilising doggie daycare. This can ensure they get the proper amount of exercise, as well as ensuring they have plenty of opportunities to use the bathroom in areas away from your carpet.
Laundry in particular seems to be a never ending chore. Just when you think you’ve got it all done, there is another monster pile needing to be dealt with all over again. Maximize your time by outsourcing this chore to a laundry service. Preferably one that is 7 days, does pick up and delivery, and handles dry cleaning and ironing as well. This way you can get all of your washing done even better than you can yourself and level up your presentation all while saving time. Better still, you’ll no longer need to worry about running around to pick up your suit for that important meeting before the dry cleaners close. Check out our services at laundrypoint.com.au.
