If Time is Money, Why Are We Spending Money to Save Time?
My plans have changed once again, and here I am at my parent’s house. Mom and I had a good laugh at the Today Show today, which had a segment about new gadgets that save time. A single-serve coffee machine, a new food processer, and a wine cooler all made the list. I wonder how much more people work to earn money to buy gadgets to save time, instead of just not working and having the time?
I want to hear from you. How do you save time without spending? One way I save time on busy mornings is to have pre-portioned 1/2 cup servings of oatmeal in reused yogurt cups. A few weeks ago when I was at Spencer’s I made two lasagnas and froze one. Now, instead of hurrying home to buy groceries (which I still have not done) and make dinner, I can spend more time with my mom, and more time with Spencer.
Mom’s tip is to prep dinner at the same time you prepare lunch. Instead of mornings being her busy time, she is busy when Karl and Kalissa get home from school. By prepping dinner when she is alone at lunch, she has more time to spend with her kids when they are home.
How do you save time without spending money?
Or, do you have a gadget that actually “pays for itself?”
