I saw a bank that said “24 Hour Banking,” but I don’t have that much time.

Over at the Horizon Milk Community we had a live discussion about time-saving strategies and how to not pull our hair out in the morning and go crazy during the school year. It gets hectic and face it there are only 24 hours in a day! Here are some links and time saving tips gathered from the live chat that might make your life easier:

This makes me laugh from Bripblap.com:
“If you have two frogs, eat the ugliest one first.”
Eating a frog is an analogy of doing your most important tasks first thing you wake up. Brian Tracy got it from the saying: If the first thing you do each morning is to eat a live frog, you can go through the day with the satisfaction of knowing that that is probably the worst thing that is going to happen to you all day long! By doing your most important task first you will less likely procrastinate on the other tasks later in the day. By getting the biggest task done first you also set the tone for the rest of the day for getting work done.
So how do you manage your time during the school year? Do you get up extra early? Make meals ahead of time? What is your secret?
