5 Time-Saving Tips for Parents

Sponsored post

Being a mum of twin boys, I know how important spending time with your family is. Every little precious moment we get is so special. Wouldn’t it be great if we all had a manual on how to manage our time better? Unfortunately I haven’t got that, but I do have some tips to share with you that will hopefully give you some extra time in your day. And who doesn’t want that?

1) Make the school lunches in advance.

I like to do mine on a Sunday night and pop them in the freezer ready for the week. Not only do you have fresh sandwiches, they keep the kid’s lunchbox cool all day.

2) Do your grocery shopping online.

All the major supermarkets provide this service. That way you can avoid the supermarket meltdowns and save money by not being tempted to buy things you really don’t need!

3) Put aside specific times a day to handle your social media.

I like to check and respond to my emails in the morning and then leave the afternoon to catch up on all my social sites.

4) Do your banking online.

I like to use Suncorp Mobile Banking App. It let’s me pay all my bills from wherever I am just with a few taps of my fingers. It’s so simple and convenient to use.

5) Set up a chores chart for the kids.

Try and choose age appropriate tasks such as setting the table or making their beds. Not only will it teach them responsibility but it will free up your time to do more fun stuff with them!

I had great fun shooting this video for Suncorp – albeit extremely nervous! I hope you enjoy the outcome and find some of the hints helpful in your daily lives.

Jolene enjoys writing, sharing and connecting with other like-minded women online – it also gives her the perfect excuse to ignore Mount-Washmore until it threatens to bury her family in an avalanche of Skylander T-shirts and Frozen Pyjama pants. (No one ever knows where the matching top is!) Likes: Reading, cooking, sketching, dancing (preferably with a Sav Blanc in one hand), social media, and sitting down on a toilet seat that one of her children hasn’t dripped, splashed or sprayed on. Dislikes: Writing pretentious crap about herself in online bio’s and refereeing arguments amongst her offspring.
