A Few Time Saving Tips For Busy Parents

Time is a precious commodity and those who learn to use theirs wisely will always be ahead of the game. First the bad news, the one thing you can’t do is add more hours to your day. No matter what, it’s just not going to happen. The good news, you can do certain things to make every precious minute count and in turn leave you with more free time.
  • Plan ahead – Don’t go anywhere without a list. Especially if you have the kids with you, you’re more likely to forget something without a list.
  • Another shopping time saving tidbit - try to go shopping in the evenings when there are less people in the store. Why waste an hour fighting the crowds when you can be done in 30 minutes. Better yet, do your shopping online.
  • Meal Plan – Plan meals for the upcoming week and write your shopping list according to the meals. Make sure you stick the meal plan on the fridge so you can know what foods need to be thawed daily, etc. This will save you a lot of time and money.
  • Buy in Bulk – If you have the space plan ahead and buy things in bulk. You’ll save money and precious time by not having to go to the supermarket so often.
  • Pay Your Bills Electronically – If you can do this then you should. You will save a lot of time by not having to write out and mail checks. If you really can’t or choose not to do this, then set up a work station and keep your checkbook, stamp, envelopes, pens close at hand. You can also have a calendar with all your important dates and appointments written on there. Go a step further and have an inbox for mail and papers that need to be files. You’ll never waste time looking for these things again.
  • Don’t Let The Housework Pile Up – There’s nothing worst than spending your weekends cleaning. If you do a little bit each day you won’t ever need to spend a whole day cleaning. For example, do a load of laundry daily rather than letting it all pile up for Saturday, same thing with the vacuuming and other tasks. Once the weekend comes around the house should be fairly organized. You may just have to give the bathroom and kitchen a good clean, leaving you with plenty of time to enjoy your family.
  • Organize Your Life – Spend a little time organizing your house, the time spent doing this will save you a lot of time and hassle in return. Have a set place for everything. For example, have a place near the front door where you can hang your keys and purse. Don’t forget items like umbrellas, hats, gloves and scarves for those rainy or cold days. Set up storage for the kids toys or all magazines and books.

Work At Home Scams...Be Informed!

Recently I lost money and a lot of time dealing with an online company that turned out to be fraudulent. Initially I don't think this particular opportunity was meant to be a scam, but things sure did sky rocket into that. I have composed a list of sites and articles I feel would be helpful to the Work At Home parents out there. It really does pay to do your research, even with being informed it's difficult to know every scam or scam artist out there, but it does pay to get all the information you can and check with the appopriate places for fraudulent behavior from the company or person you are looking into.

This is just a brief list of resources to check out if you are weary on any internet activity whether it be work at home opportunities, auction scams, phishing, spam, identity theft, etc.

If you have any resources to share, please leave a comment with the source you would like to share.

Microsoft Office Live *BETA* - Great FREE Resource

I stumbled upon a new resource I wanted to share with those of you who haven't heard of it yet, Microsoft Office Live. Not only does MSOL Basic include an easy to use website builder tool, you are provided with free web hosting and a FREE domain name. The domain name bonus really got my attention. You actually get your own domain name, not a subdomain. I recently created my shopping site DQ Delights using Microsoft Office Live. Very simple to use, however if you want to use any of your own HTML the free, basic version does not allow you to this. I found this to be the only big drawback of the program.

The Basic Version includes:
  • Easy to use website design tool
  • FREE domain name and web hosting
  • 5 personalized email accounts to match your website
  • Create an unlimited amount of webpages (30 mb. storage)
  • 10 gb. bandwidth
  • Online customer support
  • No set-up or hidden fees
  • Daily Back-ups
  • Easy upload of images and documents to use on your website
  • Traffic reports/analysis available

If the basic version provides everything you need, go ahead and give it a try. In the past when it has come to free websites, I shied away from them due to not being provided with your own domain name. Now their is a program that allows you to benefit from their free services, yet still gives you the professional appearance of your own domain name.

Public Domains - FREE Content

With Blogging and Article Writing being two important things to do if you are in Internet Marketing, constant flow of content is very important. Search Engines love original content, because of this I refrain from copying articles that have rights entitling you to do so. However, I find Public Domains a great way to get the creative juices flowing and when I need a little boost on creative ideas to write about.

Check out this website to find listings for FREE Public Domain Books and Etexts Free Public Domain Books

A few months back I had purchased Joel Comm's "The Adsense Code". I've been catching up on my reading and recently finished it. Excellent read, great adsense and traffic tips, ways to keep updated on the latest adsense news/tips and so much more. I have read many media items on Adsense and this truly was the best.
