Put more time back in your day with these tips for working moms to save time. With work, home, and family, it seems like the to-do list never ends!
When you’re a working mom, it seems like there’s never enough time in the day. We are always busy – taking care of our kids and house (which includes cooking, cleaning, organizing, etc.).
The list could go on and on. But on top of all the work at home, you have more work to do as well at your job. Time is very important, but it’s something working moms don’t get much of. So every possible thing you can do to save time helps. Here are some great tips for working moms to save time.
Doing laundry is probably one of the worst household tasks there is. The washing isn’t really the problem because it doesn’t take too much time. It’s the folding and putting away that really sucks.
It’s a lot easier if you take one day out of the week and designate it as “laundry day.” (It’s best to pick one of your weekend days). Use this day to get ALL of your laundry done, including putting it all away.
Another tip is to keep at least one extra set of sheets for every bed. So if any sheets need to be changed, you won’t have to wait for the sheets to be clean before making the bed.

Cleaning The Bathroom
Bathrooms – absolutely no one like cleaning them, but they have to be cleaned. So here are a few tips to help make it a little easier and less time-consuming.
First, it’s best to keep all your cleaning supplies close and handy, like under the bathroom cabinet in a nice tub so everything’s all together.
Another great tip is to stock the bottom of the garbage can with extra garbage bags so you can always have one handy when you take out the trash.
Also, if you buy only white toothpaste for you and your kids, no more green sour apple or pink bubble gum flavors. I know it’s not fun but it keeps your bathroom sink looking clean!

This tip may not save a TON of time, but it will definitely save some and make it a little easier for you in the morning. If you put your coffee-maker on auto-brew just before bed, then it’ll be ready right when you wake up.
This will not only give you some extra time in the morning before your kids wake up, but it’ll also give you a jump start on your day. You can just grab yourself a hot cup of coffee, pick something to read, and start your day peacefully with a little time to yourself. It really makes a huge difference, so definitely give it a try!
Now there are lots of great time-saving tips out there, but they are all different because no two working moms find the same things work for them.
Time is important for working moms, whether you need some extra time to take a break and relax every once in awhile or you need time to get other things taken care of. Whatever it may be, hopefully, these tips for working moms to save time will help you out.

I don’t drink coffee so the coffee tip does not apply but I like the other two tips. The bathroom cleaning is helpful. Thanks for sharing.
