Don’t you hate when you get up in the morning, and you’re already overwhelmed with your day? Everybody needs to save time in the morning, but how do you really do it? Here are nine shortcuts you can use to save time every single morning.
1. Always check the weather.
Try to do this a week in advance so you can plan your outfits accordingly. Use the Yahoo weather app.
2. Keep a photo closet on your phone.
This way you won’t have to think about what you’re going to wear when you’re stumped. Make a habit of putting looks together whenever you buy new clothes.
3. Make breakfast for the entire week.
Try something like this quinoa oatmeal and you can pack them in those fancy mason jars and be the envy of your office at work.
4. Use a steamer to get the wrinkles out of your clothes instead of ironing.
If you’re like me you HATE ironing and would rather not do it at all. But since that’s not socially acceptable to go outside all wrinkly, try this option instead.
5. Stay off social media!
…at least until you’re done getting ready. It’s something I struggle with, but when I’m able to I get things done a lot quicker. I’ll save my morning tweeting for my subway commute instead.
6. Keep your necessary items in the same exact spots.
You will never have to think about where they are, and you won’t be late and drive yourself crazy looking for them.
7. Organize your closet.
Separating items by color and type makes it super easy to find what you need.
8. Keep your workout clothes by your bed.
Since we should all be working out (note to self), if you keep your clothes by your bed, it’s one of the first things you see when you wake up, so you won’t have to think about working out. Also, it’s a total guilt trip.
9. Go to bed early.
Or at the very least, go to bed at the same time every night. It increases your chances for getting up at the same time the next morning.
