Top Time Saving Tips for Mums

Being a mum isn’t easy. There often seems like there just isn’t enough time in the day to get everything done, at least without exhausting yourself in the process.

The thing to remember is, there are shortcuts that you can take, especially when it comes to saving yourself some time.

Want to know more? Well, here are top time saving tips that mums can try out.

 

Take a new approach to bathtime

We all want to make sure that our children are clean, but sometimes the battle of the bathtime, as well as the time it can take up, is not one we are prepared to face. Rather than have the horror of a grubby child, instead you can take a new approach to help get you through until the next bathtime.

There are some cleansing milk products available which are designed to be able to give babies and toddlers a clean on the go. They are safe to use all over their bodies and they can be applied with a cotton ball, cleaning up the skin in no time at all and all without any need to rinse off.

 


Get prepared

There are plenty of us who spend the mornings running around trying to get out of the door. This means that we will more than welcome anything that can help. Why not set aside just 10 minutes in the evening to get things prepared for the next day? This will make things run a lot smoother in the morning and mean that you don’t feel quite as stressed out trying to get out of the door.

If you are really not in the mood for morning prep, then at least make yourself a to do list so that you can wake up ready to go.

 

Freeze!

Do you love cooking but find that you simply don’t have the time to prepare healthy, home cooked meals every night of the week? Why not see if batch cooking is a good idea for you? This means that you put aside some time every week to prepare the meals for the rest of the week. These can then be popped in the fridge or the freezer and taken out when you need a quick yet home cooked dinner.

Not only is this approach to cooking a helping hand in the time department, but can also be a huge bonus for your bank account too.

 

Have a bowl for your essentials

If you are the type of person who finds themselves running around in the morning trying to find things that you need, then you need an essentials bowl. An essentials bowl is a place, not even necessarily a bowl, that you put everything that you are likely to need to grab at very short notice. Keys, phone, spare change, umbrella, all things that can prove pretty useful to have by the door just where you need them.

 

Get the kids to help

Kids like to feel that they have a part in daily activities, so why not take advantage of this and have them help you? Giving them their own tasks to do, such as putting the shoes away or making sure that everyone has a coat when they go out is a great way to give them a sense of purpose, and may make things a little bit easier for you.

 

So, there you have it, some of the ways that you can save yourself a bit of time, whilst still being a pretty epic mum. Why not try them out for yourself?  You might be surprised by just how much these time saving tips can help.
