“TIME” The Most Precious Commodity Nowadays!

Isn’t time the most precious commodity nowadays?

My husband, my sister, my friends, and the list goes on (including me!) are always saying, “I wish I had more time to do things!”… like being with my family, finishing a home project or taking a well-deserved vacation.

This is why Get My Wish is the perfect tool to save MONEY and TIME so you can devote all those “extra” precious hours to the things you love!

I want to share with you some easy tips to save time, money, and live happily:

- Ask your friends and family for a wish list for the most important events during the year like Birthdays, Christmas, Weddings, and any other special occasion.

- Always plan for the next day. The night before sit, take a deep breath, and write on paper or in your calendar what you need to do and decide how long it’s going to take you (be realistic).

- Declare “FAMILY TIME” at home. You might be the busiest person in the world but it’s important to spend time with the people that matter most. Family time could be a moment before dinner where you sit with your husband and catch up, dedicating more time to play with the kids, or even doing some DIY arts and crafts (Visit our “Every Day Activities” board on Pinterest where we’ve pinned lots of interesting and fun activities for kids).

- Always finish what you are doing before moving on. It’s hard to finish a task if you’re constantly getting up to do something else. This can be very hard for moms as most of us are pros at multitasking, but it can be done!

- Declutter!!! Believe me chaos and mess are not good for your life. Start getting rid of the things you don’t use and you will be happier! Have a place for everything. Buy containers for loose items and make sure you know where everything is (including receipts for purchases). Time is wasted every day because we are looking for something we cannot find. Involve the kids and reward them for their job with stickers (they’re a hit with my two girls). You can also place pictures in front of the containers to show your kids what goes in each box. Check out one of our amazing partners, ORGANIZE.COM to help you through the process.

- Sign up for automatic payments on the things you pay for every month so you don’t need to do it again and again. It will save you tons of time, and when bills are paid on time you save money!
