    to save time; I stop and get the mail on my way out to pick my son up from school (and stash a few other things in a bag like paper and pens) then , while i am waiting for him, i read through mail (there is always a bag for trash in the van) and i also create my meal planner for the week, make grocery lists, etc anything that will allow me more time to focus on my family once they are all home. if there is ever one thing that is ALWAYS on my “to do” list….it is to spend more quality time with my family. thanks.

    I like to put things away as soon as I’m thru using them. It keeps things organized and I know exactly where something is next time I go to use it.

  37. Candace

    I use laundry baskets to keep the house organized. I bring one with me and scan the room for clutter. If it doesn’t belong, I put it in the basket. Next room I go to, I bring it with me and place the appropriate items in that room and clear the clutter there. By the time I’ve gone through each room, the house is picked up and everything is put away!

    STACK AND ATTACK!! Make a routine 1 day a week of all errands and chores..

    most of this is from Maria Menous Book “The EveryGirl’s Guide to Life”.. I Highly recommend it!!

    EX of stack and attack..
    Saturday morning
    laundry, bills, bank/target/cvs as early as possible!! (less lines), dry cleaner, finish laundry, clean, workout (I listen to my Nursing School Lectures here–bonus study time!)..
    Try to find ONE SHOPPING center with ALL stops

    Sunday evening..
    -Set out a weeks worth of outfits
    -Pre-make all lunches for the week

    – MAKE INVENTORY LISTS FOR ALL AREAS OF YOUR HOUSE! That way when it is time to shop you can just grab your lists with what you need already marked!
    -Keep warranties taped to the back of item (plus copies in a file)

    Many Many more in her book. Oh it was so helpful!!

    Laurie you know that you are “liked on my facebook”.. and I now “like” CleanMama!

  45. jamie

    Double Facebook Likes!!

  46. Susan

    My time saving tip is to have a shoe basket in the hall closet and have the kids take off their shoes right when they walk in the door. This way you never run around searching for shoes.

  48. Kaci Johnson

  50. Gail

    The days that slide right on by because, well….life happens, are the days that turn out so hectic and scrambled with no direction.Like everyone and everything is pulling you in a different direction, playing with your thoughts and saying “me first, No! me over here, Um…excuse me but I’ve been on the to-do list the longest, I’m the loudest squeeky wheel front and center, Well….is’nt this is the perfect time to have a diva moment?, and to top it all off…..your dryer decided to permanently take an early retirement.” Anyone else ever feel like that? I really need to be organized!

  51. Karla Tiburcio

    I want to start a cleaning list and have no idea where to start and this will help me a ton 🙂

    Lists – Lists and more lists! Can’t live without them. To keep your bathtub and shower clean almost all the time…. keep Scrubbing bubbles near the tub. As soon as you get out (after you’ve dried off – lol) spray it down – walls, and everything. Then while you’re brushing your teeth, shaving, etc. let the scrubby bubbles do it’s magic. Then a quick rinse before you head out – got an extra minute wipe the walls down with an old towel – your walls will be spot and soap scum free. This little trick keeps you from having to spend an hour scrubbing things down and it’s always clean for the next person that gets in.

  54. Susan

    I “like” clean mama now too.

  79. Sandra F

    The only tip I have is one that I try hard to do but don’t always remember after a hectic day. Before we put our son to bed we pull out some clothes for the next day. He gets to choose what to wear and it takes a little time so he thinks he is delaying bedtime while he is really saving me time in the morning.

  82. Kristy Grosfeld

    Best tip to stay organized….when you label your storage, it’s easy to find.

  83. Cat

    My best tip is to multitask. Wipe counters while you brush your teeth. Make your grocery list while you wait for the water to boil. Keep a notebook in the car and jot down to-do’s while you wait at a really long light. Find ways to use those ‘spare’ moments throughout the day.

  86. catie litle

    i try to make sure i only make one trip to the store a week. so when i think about the things i need through the day i write them down, at the end of the week when i go, i have everything already written down, so i know exactly what I am going to get. Then when at the store I just start with one end of the store and go thru to the other, so im not going all over. it’s cut down at least two hours per trip!

  87. Tonia

    Focus on one room a day…

  88. Tonia

    I “like” Tip Junkie on FB..Love this website. I have gotten so many ideas from it and can’t wait to try them!!!

  89. Kaitlin

    I have a daily planner, one side is the week and the other side is blank for to-do’s. I put general to do’s on that side and then sort them into the days. I like writing them all down so I can order them so that I’m not running all over the place. I hate when you go to a store, and then later in the day realize you needed something else in the area!
    I liked tip junkie, clean mama & tweeted!!

  90. Moni

    Cleaning tip: clean a but at a time and or when in a certain area for a while clean you will be suprized how fast and easy it is… Thanks you working so hard on tip junkie…I enjoys some of the great finds on here…

  91. April H

    Ooooh. I’ve been saving my pennies for these printables for a long time! I hope I win! My best tip is plan plan plan ahead! Obvious, I know, but I kick myself every time I DON’T do it!

    Best Time Saving Tip? I’m laughing to myself, because if I had one, I wouldn’t have been so excited to enter for a chance to get my life organized. Hahaha.

    But when my mind has a few moments away from being a mommy, and a professional working woman, I make a priority list that consists of sticky notes- on the left side are Important To-Do’s, and on the right side of the notebook are Things To-Do (that can wait). As I complete the tasks on the left side, I throw that sticky away, and move one over from the right side to the left. Just something that I have found to be helpful.

  101. Ashley

    I know it sounds obvious, but don’t hit the snooze button. You’re not getting good sleep, just sleep that will make you more tired. Get up with your alarm if you have time to snooze it you have time to set it later and get good quality sleep.

  102. Tara

    Im working on my home management binder right now.As a newlywed,and mom to a young one I have to write out my plan of attack or it will get swept to the back of my mind.Do you want fog free bathroom mirrors?Clean them with old school white puffy mens shaving cream.Works sooooo well!

    Time Saving Tip: I buy sheets with stripes on them. It helps me when making all the beds I always know the stripes run from head to foot! I hate guessing and then having to flip the direction after getting one side on 🙂 Makes making beds a little easier 🙂

  154. Jenny S

    My best timesaving tip is to pick out my outfit the night before. Of course, I only do this about once a week, so I am running late the other 4 work days, but hey! No one is perfect, right?! Maybe with these printables I’ll be one step closer! ; )

  155. Kasey R.

    My time saving tip: basically all I do when cleaning is to get my 4-yr old involved. I try to make a game out of cleaning and wiping windows and she love it. Helps me to get things done quicker with 4 hands!!

  156. Marci

    My time saving tip is to pick up each room as you are in there, when using the bathroom in the morning, give it a quick tidy before leaving.

  157. Ramonita

    I so want these sheets specially to organize the bills!!

  158. Rhian

    I don’t think I have a great time saving tip to share but I love reading everyone elses!

  159. Kim

  162. elle

    My time saving tip is using my timer…I seem to move much faster when I have limited time to complete my cleaning!

  163. Michelle

    My Time Saving tip – SCHEDULE, Schedule and schedule some more. With four kids I have the routine down to the minute. I can get them up and out the door in 45 min.

    6:45 Get up, get dressed, make bed (I pour cereal, make toast or whatever else we have that morning)
    7:00 Breakfast – no excuses, eat or starve (while they eat I make lunches and pack backpacks)
    7:15 Wash up,Teeth, hair
    7:25 Shoes, coats and back packs on
    7:30 Wait for the first bus to arrive, second comes 15 min later but they are ready and there is no time to mess around

    This saves time and energy, as we all know the routine. Homework is done the night before, and outfits laid out before bed.

  164. nikki

    I don’t have any tips but would love to learn some! 🙂

  165. Lindsey Miller

    My time saving tip may just apply to me, lol! I find that the longer it takes for me to get started on something, the more I seem to procrastinate! If I can just toss a load of laundry in the washer *first thing* in the morning, and unload the dishes *before* breakfast, it seems the ball is already rolling, so keeping the momentum is so much easier!

  166. Michelle

    I love Tip Junkie!!! Used many of the ideas that have been posted on FB.

  167. Lindsey Miller

    I like you on fb too!

  168. Caryn

    I am a huge fan of Tip Junkie!
    My best time saving tip since school has gone back is to make my son’s lunches the night before, they have a special ‘spot’ in the fridge so everyone knows where to find it in the morning! Saves so much time and stress in the morning.

  169. merium c

    I like the ‘5-minute-clean’ at night~room to room, with a timer!

  183. Lauren Hope

    My time saving tip is to fold clothes straight out of the dryer – gets it done right away, with fewer wrinkles. Hate the laundry pile up! Thanks for all the great tips!

  184. Alice

    Best Tip is while cleaning to have a small basket, or stair basket, at the bottom of the stairs for things going to the second story and one at the top of the basement stairs for things going down. When you’re heading up or down, take the basket with you and put everything away.

  185. Arielle Salzman

    hmmm time saving tip….i find it help if i use a timer…to keep myself on track and to create an incentive to get things done quickly or by a certain time. That’s what works for me anyways 🙂

  189. Christina

    Just “liked” clean mama printable. I love organizational printable =] used many of your free ones here on the site.

  190. Jenna Burton

    My best timesaving tip is:

    Have a routine & schedule. I have 5 kids and I home educate. I have notebooks for each child with their daily schedule (even fun time scheduled!), chore list, short & long term goals, etc… Each child has a laundry day – they wash their own laundry on that day, fold and put away. That saves me from doing laundry non-stop as well as instills responsibility and life skill!

    I’m in love with printables! I love organization and have been called an organization freak by my children LOL!
    I try hard to be organized, but I am no expert!

    My biggest time saver is using one master calendar for the entire family. I record all activities for the five of us in one place so I don’t have to consult several different schedules for work, sports, volunteering, etc. I would love to win some of Clean Mamas printables to help keep our home organized!

    My biggest time saving tip is to have the next day planned, clothing, meals etc, before going to bed the night before. It helps you to get a good night’s rest without stressing about the day ahead and when you wake up you know what you need to do, when you need to do it!

  204. rebecca Nordyke

    Bedtime routine. Check my meal plan for the next day and pull our frozen goods, quick pick up of the house, lay out clothes for the next day, etc.

    One of my newest tips is- make a bag card/badge for bags headed out the door. My daughter and I are so busy during the week, and have multiple activities each day. We both leave with at least 2 bags for school (school bag, after school bag- gym clothes, dance clothes, cheer equipment, Yoga equipment). It can be confusing and hectic getting out the door with the right stuff, so we made tags for each bag that remind us what needs to be in the bag before we leave.

    The best time saving tip I have is to preplan your dinners. Make a list of dinners you want to make that week or that month. It truly saves money on grocerys and saves time trying to decide what to eat that night. I swear by it.

  228. Kristin

    Organization is key to my sanity! As a working mom to three girls, we ate constantly running to school, activities, play dates, etc. The only way for me to keep up is using lists! I menu plan each week based on what we have going on, girls bring lunches to school everyday, we plan plan plan. These lists are so useful and helpful for all of us mommies and can even be a great teaching tool for the kiddos! Thank you Tip Junkie for sharing and for all the amazing info you share with us!

  229. Jill Myers

    I am a fan of Tip Junkie on FB. I recommended you to my daughter as well. You have GREAT ideas for us!

    One of my best tips I would love to share is my use of coffee filters. I buy a large, inexpensive package at the dollar store nearby. I flatten these out and cover food or liquids I am microwaving. Saves on splatters and makes clean-up so much easier. And the coffee filters go a long way.

  230. KIm Cottier

    Love u and all your tips. My tip is toy rotation. It keeps down on the clutter, they enjoy their toys more as when something they haven’t had for awhile comes out its like getting something new. I also rotate out so for everything new thats bought they have to donate something to Goodwill or to the garagesale box.

    Maybe it’s not too good of an organizational tip but.. I try to keep up with housework by doing a few minutes each day rather than a big clean once a week. I also cook 2 meals on Sunday so that we have leftovers to bring to work throughout the week.

    I use clothes pins for everything. They are a great way to mark my place when I am working through something. The clip bags closed, hang anything, etc.
    I also put things back where the go as soon as I am done with them. Even if I am really tired. It saves me soooo much time later to have everything where it needs to be to do the next project.
    I put everything, I mean everything, in a specific place with like things and I do it in a logical way. I can find anything in my house in minutes because of this.

    Great giveaway! 2 tips I have that save me time are when taking something off a hanger to wear the hanger goes in the laundry basket with the dirty clothes so when I do the laundry I don’t have to hunt down hangers. Tip 2 is useful for all those plastic baggies you get from the walmart, target and grocery stores…I put a handful of them in all my small waste baskets in the bathrooms and bedrooms. This way when I have to change out the garbage bags I have a replacement right at my fingertips!

  277. Ang, never Angie

    Whenever I bake/cook anything that freezes well, I double or triple the batch. That way, I have extra muffins, cookies, or casseroles when I need them for a busy day, sick neighbor, or just need a break.

    I have found that my most time saving tip to make mornings run smoother is to prepare everything for school lunches the night before. I have a shelf of my refrigerator dedicated to the kids’ lunches. Sandwiches are made, water bottles are filled and then all the snacks are laid out the night before. Makes loading all the lunch boxes a snap in the mornings!

  292. Dee

    when you go grocery shopping, pre-prepare some foods before you put them away. Brown your ground beef and season it, then place in freezer bags, labeled Itialian, or Mexican, depending on the seasoning. Chop onions and green peppers and freeze them as well. Boil some chicken, debone and shred. Save the broth as well. Pre-cooking some of your foods will make family meals so much quicker. Another option is to brown 5-8 pounds of ground beef/turkey at once. Season and add spaghetti sauce to the entire mixture. Then divide for multiple meals. Spaghetti, homemade pizza, Bubble Up Pizza (pizza ingredients and sauce mixed with cut up biscuits and baked), lasagne.

    My tiime saving tip is for my fiancé who is in school. Always work with him on Mondays to document all of his assignments for the week on a printable calendar. He then prints all the reading materials and assignments. It’s time saving because now that he has an idea of his schedule, he can manage his time vs. Doing it as he goes.

  346. Ruby

    I clean my microwave the easy way. I always use sponges around the kitchen and lemon juice (in the bottle) in the fridge. I sanitize my sponges all the time. I found that if I wet my sponge and put just a splash of lemon juice on it, then put it in the microwave for a minute, the steam off the sponge makes it easy to clean the inside of the microwave. The lemon juice is just an added extra to keep it smelling nice. CAUTION: Let the sponge cool well before handling it!!

  347. linda rice

    I love lists!! and I am always looking for ways to keep the household in order. I print our calendar and post it on the fridge, on my husband’s desk and give a copy to my kiddo… after we have a family meeting to review the weekly items. Clean Mama looks perfect!

    My favorite time saving tips – I am new to this site and love it! I hope you all won’t think I am crazy for sharing so many of my favorite tips.

    *I print all of my recipies on 4×6 recipe cards that I created in my computer and then I use self laminating sheets to cover and protect them from spills. I used to spend so much time re-doing recipe cards and it drove me crazy.

    *Menu planning! I create a menu every Saturday and pull the recipe cards if I don’t have it memorized and put them in order in the front section of my recipe box. I double check to make sure that I have all ingredients so there is no running back and forth to the store.

    Every Fall:
    *I do a re-stock of my pantry staples tossing old items
    *I do a re-stock of winter cold medicines throwing away outdated formulas
    *I put clean and make any necessary repairs to spring jackets

    Every Spring
    *I take coats in for cleaning and repairs (because it is never convenient once it gets COLD!)
    *I wash winter hat’s, scarves and gloves I put them in a plastic tub in the closet with a few fresh smelling dryer sheets. It is so convenient to just pull that tub out of the closet when the weather changes and not have to “hunt” these items down when the weather changes.

    Holiday Decorations:
    *I put all of my decorations away for each holiday in colored tubs and there is a list in a plastic sheet protector on top of the box that tells me what items are in each box. It is easier to go room by room and put all Christmas tree trimings in one box.

    *I check all lights to make sure they are operational before I put them away

    *All outdoor decorations are cleaned before they are stored

    Holiday Parties:

    Menu’s are made in early fall and I start shopping for non-perishables and libations early. I keep a separate list in my wallet and check off the items as a I go along, that way there is no last minute rush and I save money by getting items on sale.
    – FYI, most stores run multiple wine sales in the late summer/early fall months and you can stock up for
    a fraction of normal costs!

  371. Ashley F

    Hmmm… I guess my best time saving tip would be for laundry. I have 5 laundry baskets (white, jeans, darks, lights and towels). That way when we put clothes in the hamper it is already separated and since there are 7 of us it keeps me from having to separate 6 baskets of laundry on laundry days.

    My tip is to fix snacks for the week on sunday. I cut up any fruits and veggies I am going to need and put them in baggies and have them labeled so I know what I am pulling out of the fridge to put in my lunchbox for work and class. It saves tons of time during the week becuase you arent worried about getting everything cut up the day of all you have to do is get the baggies out of the fridge and put them in your lunchbox!

    I so need help… My house is a disaster area. Literally. And I so wish I were kidding…

    My time saving tip – the one thing I AM organized with – is to have a designated spot for keys, wallets, phones, and the kids’ backpacks, SHOES!!, and anything else they need for school. We make sure before we go to bed that everything is in it’s place and that everything they need for the next day is already in their packs (signed papers, homework, books, etc.). We also pick out clothes the night before and set them out so we aren’t frantically looking for missing socks, underwear, or that *ONE* thing we can’t find (which is inevitable in the dirty clothes hamper, or soaking wet in the washing machine.)

    My best time saving tip is to make list and actually cross out the things I get done. I am a list freak. I then consolidate my lists and add new things…They can get out of hand sometime, but I think that is only because I tend to keep them all and never throw an old one away!

    I bought a small purse from Sam Moon that can fit into my normal purse and put dividers with labels in it, and use it to itemize my receipts and file them in a normal filing cabinet at the end of the month.

  387. June Ferguson

    I think my favorite time-saving tip is: don’t waste time cleaning something that is already clean!! I always remind myself that I don’t need to dust, scrub, rinse, etc. every single thing in my house every single week!!

    Making lists is huge for staying organized and saving time. Whether it’s a shopping list, or a to-do list or a cleaning list. I’m a list geek!

  396. heidi

    i make a TON of lists – plan my menu for the week/grocery list, lesson plans for son’s pre-schooling, list of daily/weekly tasks, list of tasks for following week, etc. They keep me organized and save lots of time & I don’t have to think too much after they’re done!

  397. Rebecca

    Menu plan!

  398. SuZann

    I make a 4 week rotating menu. Saves deciding what to fix for dinner and time running to the store for something you don’t have. It also saves money cuz we’re not eating out all the time.

  399. Mackenzie

    I worked as a waitress for awhile and at work we would say “full hands in and full hands out”. I have tried to apply that to my home life as well. It is such a time savor! If you’re taking something into another room while doing cleanup, come back with something that needs to be put away. It saves trips back and forth and time.

  400. Erin

    Thanks again for another great resource to help organize our busy lives!

  401. Jen Savage

    To-do lists are my lifesaver. I keep one in my dropbox all the time, so I can update it from my phone or from my computers at work or at home. These printables look GREAT!

  402. John

    This unorganized dada is looking to get so organized with Clean Mama Printables.

  403. Julie

    I save both time and money by using convenient grocery store online shopping service. I keep a running grocery list on a dry erase board on the refrigerator and shop online in just a few minutes, thus saving the hour and a half it takes me to get to the grocery store, shop, and get back home. My coupons are honored as usual, turned in at order pick-up, including double, triple, and super double coupon promotions. I have also found that paying the $4.95 online shopping fee still saves me a bundle. (Plus, the store often runs specials like $1.95 shopping or a $15.00 flat rate per month for any number of shopping orders.) On average, I spend about $75 more per trip if I actually go into the store because I make more impulse purchases, and with today’s prices it doesn’t take much to total $75 or more. It is much easier to be disciplined in what I order when ordering online. And best of all, my husband drives through to pick up my order on his way home from work (they load the car for us in the special online shopping pick-up lane), and if I order a hot rotisserie chicken, fried chicken, BBQ ribs, or pork loin roast, it is ready to eat and I just have to fix quick side dishes. I can sew or clean or do anything else all day and still stock up on needed groceries. Many of my friends are sure it’s a waste of money to pay the shopping fee and continue to complain about and dread grocery shopping, but I know better and come out ahead in both time and money!!

    set a timer to do a chore you want to get going on. 15 minutes won’t hurt you and you may find you get involved and get even more done. if not, another day. pick me!

    I use 15 minute blocks to plan my time and I ALWAYS overestimate how long something is going to take me. If it takes me 5-10 minutes to get somewhere I leave 15 minutes early, if it takes 10-20 minutes I leave 30 minutes early. If I think washing the dishes will take me 10 minutes I give myself a 15 minute block to finish it. If a project should take around 35 minutes I’ll plan it to take 45 minutes. Then when I have that extra 5-10 minutes when I arrive somewhere I don’t feel rushed and I can make sure I’m mentally prepared for whatever I’m about to do. Or when I’m done with my task early I can stop and enjoy a cup of coffee for a few minutes or make a phone call.

  416. Casey

    I love things that keep me organized…and if I don’t have to think about it to much- all the better. Clean Mama is great discovery!

    I love to use Clean Mama’s free to-do list she just posted a couple of weeks ago, because come nap time when I have all this freedom I shutdown and want to sit down and eat some bon bons while watching tv. Having a to do list keeps me on track, thus saving me time in the long run.

    Since we no longer purchase boxed cereal quick breakfast ideas have been challenging. Now I use the crockpot the night before and have a hot, nutritious breakfast ready in the morning. These meals give us more energy to face the day and keep us full longer.
    One favorite is steel cut oats, some almond or coconut milk, water and dried fruit. In the morning we drizzle on pure maple syrup or raw honey and I like chopped nuts on mine.
    There are also egg dishes and other breakfast casseroles that can be assembled the night before.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

    I need help in getting more organized 🙂 I like to do the 10 minute nightly clean before I head to bed. It helps getting up in the morning with the house looking somewhat picked up!

    To save time on cleaning, I’ll use the swifer duster on everything about 2 times a week. Then I don’t have to clean as often because I maintain the dust during the week.

  443. Lori J

    I do as much as I can the night beforeo – making breakfast, lunches, packing bags, etc. And lists help me so much with saving time!

  444. jayme

    I have a wipe board that I had originally put up for the kids to use, but I have turned it into my daily list.
    I also have a window marker by crayola that I use on my mirror in my bathroom. I find that I think of a lot of things to remember while brushing my teeth or getting ready for the day. It’s also great to jot a quick “love ya” to the hubby on his side.

  445. Jocelyn

    I make lots of lists!

  446. Robin S.

    Lists are my best friend! Not because I am especially organized, but because in the hustle and bustle of everyday life I will forget it if I don’t write it down!!! My biggest time saver is to do as much the night before as I can – pack lunches and the diaper bag, lay out clothes and accessories, and have everything on the kitchen counter ready to grab and walk out the door.

  447. Lisa

    In my “Home Notebook” i just keep the quick and easy recipes that i already have tried.
    This way i save time and nothing can go wrong :o)

  448. Ana B

    I thank my mom for all ways getting me to be organized. It was something I never planned to use since I wanted to remain single. LOL, Lord ur path is much better. Now everyone I know is always asking me how I keep up? I respond with my ” sea touring” notebook. That is right, the notebook I have made or bought have been my life saver year after year. I love printables, can get enough of them.

  449. Julie F

    My best time savings tip is to lay out outfits on Sunday for the week. It allows my 4 year old to feel independent beccause she can dress herself and I don’t have to spend time fighting over what outfit she is going to wear.

  450. Lyndsey

    My best time saving tip is having my husband’s and my ever-changing work calendar displayed in one place. We save ourselves hours of ‘what do you have tomorrow?’ and ‘what time will you be leaving/back?’

  480. Kristin Schuchart

    The thing that works best for saving me time is posting lists for everyone in the household on a bulletin/dry erase board by the back door.
    I list schedules, notes for school, lunch menu, appts, etc, and hang anything we need for the day on hooks or in baskets right below.
    We all go out this door as we leave the house, so we are all sure to see it and be reminded of important things.
