5 Quick Chores You’ll Thank Yourself for Doing
As a busy
mom, your time is precious. Luckily, there are some fast and easy tasks you can do today that will save you
time and energy later on.
Setting up autopay for your bills will only take a few minutes of your time right now, and it has the potential to save you lots of time each month when the bills come rolling in. Rather than having to sit down and log into each account for your electric bills or cable bills, or mail out checks, you can set up autopay to have your bill payments flow out of your account each month without you having to take any action.
Sign up for a Meal
Delivery Service or a Grocery Delivery Service
shopping is a chore that can become time-consuming. Why not make things easy on
yourself by having your groceries delivered? There are several different
companies that you can order meals from, and they will send you the fresh
ingredients you need to make them. Two such companies are Hello Fresh and Blue
Apron. You can choose your meals ahead of time (both companies allow you to
choose a family-size serving!) and once a week; you will get a delivery of the
ingredients for your chosen meals. This is a fun and simple way for you to save
some time, while also ensuring you and your family are eating healthy foods!
Schedule HVAC Maintenance
quick phone call to schedule heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC)
maintenance can actually save you loads of time (and money!) down the road. By
scheduling regular HVAC maintenance, minor issues will be discovered
before they become big problems. No one likes to deal with a broken air
conditioner, especially in the scorching summer heat! Regular appointments will
also ensure you maintain your warranties, as some warranties require regular
maintenance in order to remain valid.
File Important Papers ASAP
It's easy to let letters, bills, or other vital documents sit around your house until you are ready to deal with them. However, keeping an organized file box can be an enormous help, not just to save time, but also to save your sanity! If you commit to filing important documents right away, you'll spend less time frantically searching for them later. It will also be a big help in ensuring that you don't miss important deadlines since you will have everything you need in its place and organized.
