1. Gas Up
You know that feeling when you finally wrestle the kids into the car, get yourself situated and turn on the ignition…to find out you have hardly any gasoline?! This means guaranteed late arrival to work. The simple (or maybe not so simple) solution is to gas up the day before. If you know you’re low, gas up on the way home from work. If you are on a tight schedule after work each day also, then gas up when the tank is between ¼ and ½ and you’re not under pressure. This will prevent you from having to stop for gas when you’re running late.
2. Pajamas Shmajamas
This could be the single best time-saving technique since the invention of the microwave oven. Who says kids have to wear pajamas to bed? Why can’t they wear tomorrow’s clean clothes? Put them to bed in their school uniform or the next day’s outfit. When they wake up they’ll be happy they don’t have to get dressed. You’ll feel relief like the day your teacher let you go without assigning homework.
