Time Saving Tuesday (TST)

Time Saving Tuesday

 

As a single mother with three daughters, a house, cats and a job working close to 50 hours a week the only way I can keep up my wonder woman persona is to find things that save me time. This can be a good thing when it comes to not slipping back into former habits that contributed to hurting my health.  Over the years I’ve come up with lots of tricks that work for me and, thanks to Pinterest and the many websites out there, I see lots of others that I’d like to try one day. Each week I thought I would share either a tip that I use or something that I’ve seen on another site. Perhaps some of these will work for you to help save you time and make things a bit easier. If you’ve got a great time saving tip to share why not post it in the comment section below.

Time Saving Tuesday

Crock Pot

One of the biggest time savers, and the thing that has kept me from picking up take out on the way home from work, is the crock pot. I will often put the ingredients into the crock the night before and store it in the refrigerator until the morning. I take it out when I first get up to allow the ceramic crock to warm up a bit, put it into the base, turn it on low and head out the door. This week I’ve already made Easy Steak Pot Roast. The kids will usually shut it off right before I get home and when I walk through the door supper is ready to be served. There is no shortage of recipes online so you could make something in your crock pot every night of the week for years to come. Besides saving time it also saves you money (take out and convenience foods cost so much more) and you get to control the ingredients so meals can be healthier.

Got a favorite time saving tip? Why not share it in the comment section below. It doesn’t have to be food related. Tips that save you stress, anxiety and aggravation help keep you healthy as well.
