We are all given the same number of hours in a day to get things done. I know I find that I get sidetracked many times throughout the day. As a result, I’ve been looking for all of the little ways to gain more time in your day. I decided to track the things that are time sucks for me. Many times I find that the very things I’m trying to fix are the same things my friends are working on too.

We lose precious time in our day that we can use for other things in a variety of ways. in this post, I shared some ways to gain more time in your day here.

Gain More Time In Your Day:

Unsubscribe to emails you never read.

Set up canned responses for emails with questions you get asked repeatedly

Buy your products online – I have compiled a blog post that will help you be able to put money in your pocket for saving yourself money on gas and time spent running errands.

Make lists! Only make trips into town for the things you can’t buy online once a week. If you're savvy do it monthly.

Focus on one task at a time. Multitasking has its place, but in more cases, than not it is truly a hindrance.

Organization helps save time and money. Make sure everything you own has its place.  Putting things away when you're done using them doesn't take much time. (This makes it easier to not only find things. This will help you know how much of those products you have on hand at all times.)

Be sure that you keep your home decluttered of things you don’t need.

Put a routine in place. That way family and friends can know when they can spend time with you without interrupting whatever productivity activities you must do.

Clean as you go. It’s far easier to keep a house clean than it is to spend hours cleaning messes ground into everything. Rachel from Smart Mom Smart Ideas has come up with 100 Cleaning Tips and Hacks For Busy Moms that will help make this task easier.

Use Block Apps. Mashable shared 6 Apps That Block Online Distractions. These are beneficial to use if you don’t have the willpower to stay off social media or checking your email every few minutes. Even my beloved Entrepreneur magazine suggested using the Onward app to help balance tech-life.

Learn to say NO. This one is still a hard one for me to conquer. We can’t be everywhere at once. It’s so easy not to keep track of the amount of time we lose doing things for/with other people that weren’t planned on.

Practicing time management can be one of the strongest gifts we can give ourselves and our teenagers. Order Out of Chaos has a sale on their planners until September 30, 2017. Be sure to use the coupon code PLANNER20.  

I know that I am glad that I learned this skill early on in life because it has helped me to be able to advance into management positions as a teenager. It has also helped me to be able to work from home and homeschool my kids. I still fall into these little time traps!

I hope that these ideas will help you gain more time in your day. They may not sound like very much at all, but when you combine them, they can be pretty significant time savers.
