7 Time Saving Hacks for Busy Moms.

I know what it’s like to be completely frazzled to get things done with how busy you get being a mom. Being a wife. Being a career woman. It can get overwhelming.

I’m here to give you some tips on saving time and saving yourself from getting run down and fed up.

I hope you find some that help you below.


Get things ready the night before.

This is especially important if you have school aged kids. Put out their clothes, pack lunches, have things ready the night before. Or if you have young ones, I still love to have my toddlers clothes ready and all the baby’s bottles ready to go for the night and the next day.

Always have a to-go bag.

I always have my diaper bag packed for both my baby and my toddler but I feel like even if they were older, having a bag filled with small things to keep them busy and snacks is always so important to be able to grab on the way out the door.

Calendars and lists.

I am such a list person. I love writing out to-do lists and scheduling out my months in calendars. It really helps to put pen to paper for me and to keep appointments, meetings and family schedules on track.

Meal service delivery.

Seriously makes dinner time so much easier. The last thing I want to be doing is spending an hour preparing dinner after a busy day and the prices are so comparable to what you would buy for ingredients on your own at the store.

Meal prep.

Something I am so bad at but I know it would make my life so much easier. Meal prepping is a great way to save time for all three meals of the day. Crazy how much time during the day we spend on food.

Being present.

Something I’ve really tried to do this new year. Staying off social media. You can spend hours scrolling through reels and stories and your Facebook feed. I know this because I’ve done it, since staying off some social medias I really have freed up a lot of my time to make life easier by doing other things.

Routine.

Sticking with a routine is such a life saver. You know when bed time and wake up time is for your kids and it helps you get your tasks done either after bed or before wake up. Plus it’s just good all around for everyone in the family.

    Having a go-bag packed as a habit makes it so easy to walk out the door without rushing to get everything together. Likewise, a meal-delivery service can make stressful evenings much more relaxed. 🙂

    Oh yes, when my babies were little it was all about the go bag! Now it’s meal prep and night before prep for school and after school activities. Without the prep, it’s so much more stressful….. I need to prep more often 😩

    Such great, practical tips.

    I always have a bag packed with snacks & supplies in the car. And on our coat hooks as we go out of the door. I also prepare clothes & lunches the night before!

    Having a bag ready is such a great idea. I don’t think it’s done as much after the diaper bag stage, but it should be. I love a good meal prep and don’t do it often enough. I am also a list person. I seem to need them more than I used to since the memory isn’t as sharp as it used to be. Great reminders that I need to put into practice.

    Being present is an awesome way to save time for busy moms or anyone. We save time by being in the now. Issues only arise when sprinting to the future or going backwards into the past.
