Any helpful time saving tips? Like getting clothes laid out the night before.I feel like every other week I just can't keep up with things at home :/ I lose 2.5 hours of my day driving those weeks, and will be loosing some full days when I won't be home til sometime between 4-6 pm after leaving the house at 645 am...(which those days shouldn't be AS bad since there won't be a mess from being home lol) it seems like that extra time makes a HUGE difference! I do freezer meals a lot those weeks so I spend less time worrying about dinner and dishes afterward. But looking for any other helpful tips to stay on top of things.

Now on top of that I have lost 2 full days/so every other week and 2 half days the other weeks >.<

I divide up my house into sections when I clean so I don't get overwhelmed thinking about all the things that need to get done. Like one day I do the kitchen and dishes and stuff, next day bedrooms and laundry, next day bathrooms and floors, etc. and just stay on top of things. Don't let laundry and dishes pile up.

Paper plates, leftovers, meal planning, pre cooked rotisserie chickens from the grocery store. Lol

Every other week (Monday-Friday) I lose at least 2.5 hours/day out of the normal days I am used to...

Oh and line baking dishes with foil or parchment paper. It makes clean up much easier. I love crock pot liners too.

I started a rotating laundry schedule (still  working on it lol) one day I'll do diapers, next is regular clothes and towels that night, next day diapers, etc. I'm trying to get everyone to put dishes in the dishwasher instead of the sink but so far no luck :/ I think I'm gonna sit down tomorrow and divide the chores up into certain days of the week?

One of those reacher grabby pincher  poles at the drug store. You can pick up a room twice as fast and don't have to bend over 500times to get it done.
