20 Time Saving Life Hacks for Working Mum’s

It’s time to get back to the office, school run and the daily grind so today I’m sharingΒ 20 time saving, life hacks for working Mum’s. After eleven years juggling children and career, I’m happy to report that these things really do work and really do save you time. Basically it pays to be organised so here they are.

    • Set your alarm for at least 30 minutes earlier than necessary to build a buffer into your day. If all goes well you can just enjoy the extra time.
    • Invest in a coffee maker that has a timer. Set it to make you coffee for when you wake up. Life changing.
    • Write out a list of all the tasks/activities and chores that need doing in a month. Once you have your list, sit down with a month-to-view calendar and schedule in every task and chore in priority order. This sounds incredibly OTT I know but trust me and give it a go. I swear by this and it’s the only way I feel in control of things amidst the chaos of work, childcare and running a home.
    • Menu plan. Stop trying to cook gourmet meals for the family and just feed them easy, fuss-free fodder. Plan it all out for a full month and then make a weekly shopping list for each week.
    • Online grocery shopping. It’s the only way to go for time-poor parents. All of the high-street supermarkets have the ability to create lists of your favourite items in your shopping account. Make a list of the recurring items that you need each week and save it. Then make a list for each week of the upcoming month with the extra’s or one-off’s that you want. Book your delivery slots online ahead of time and all you need to do is add your two lists to your trolley and check out each week.
    • Once a month take a trip to a cheaper shop. Home and Bargains, Wilko’s, Pound Stretcher etc and buy big items like washing powder. It will save you a lot of money over the month.
    • Put up a family wall planner somewhere highly visible, like the kitchen. Have a column for each member of the family and a pen surgically attached to it so you can add in events as they appear. Back it up with an online calendar. Apple have their own that you can sync with anyone who also has an icloud account. Google have something similar. This is basically how my partner and I communicate. Seriously.
    • Use your slow cooker. There are a million, fuss-free recipes available online. Check out my Pinterest board for some of my favourite’s or buy a book like this one. I have used mine to death and I swear by it.

Being a working mom / mum is hectic isn't it? Do you find that you are never organised? That you never have any spare time? The fridge is always empty? The house always a mess? Well I'm about to sort all your troubles with these easy to follow time saving life hacks. They will make your working and home life so much easier and smoother

  • Lay out everyone’s clothes the night before and that way you just have to get dressed and go.
  • Same for any bags that you are taking out with you. Have it all ready to go the night before and waiting at the front door. Packed lunches can be left in the fridge but make sure they are ready.
  • Wear a dressing gown over your work clothes in the morning to protect yourself from sticky fingers and boogers. Ugh.
  • Get into the habit of putting on a load of laundry last thing at night. Hang it out to dry (or tumble dry it) first thing in the morning, fold and put away when you get home. Keep that cycle going and you should hopefully stay on top of it.
  • Keep an emergency kit in your car. This has been learned the hard way with one too many projectile vomit on the way to nursery incidents! Basic first aid kit, bottled water, baby wipes a-plenty, old towels and a change of clothes for the kids.
  • Keep a small cleaning caddy in the bathroom’s with everything you need. Then do a quick daily wipe round when you are in it each day. I actually clean my shower whilst I’m in it.
  • If you’re kids or youself attend any extra-curricular clubs or sports then wash and dry their kits and re-pack straight into the bag so it’s always ready to go and you aren’t hunting for goggles or swimming trunks at the last minute.
  • Make a list of family and friend’s birthday’s for the whole year and then buy all of the cards in January. It might seem a lot but it will mean you won’t have to think about it again that year! Same goes for gifts if you’re organised enough to take advantage of the January sales.
  • Wash & blow dry your hair in the evening. Then stick it up on top of your head using a pair of (clean!!) knickers. They don’t leave any bobble marks and I promise your hair will look fresh and perfect when you let it down again in the morning.
  • If you have a commute to work then use the time to answer emails or catch up on a bit of admin away from the kids.
  • One for the bloggers – schedule your social media! Many of you are parents, working full time AND blogging so make your life a little easier and schedule all your tweets and Facebook posts.
  • Say “no” more often. Learn where Β your limits are. You cannot do and be everything no matter how great your multi-tasking, superwoman skills are.

Let me know what your most useful time saving tips are in the comments box below so we can all benefit from them. I hope that you’ve found at least some of these life hacks for working mum’s useful.

Until next time lovelies

    Knickers on the head!!! That one I will try. Thanks for this, a very useful post for all of us trying to juggle it all. Good luck this week!

  2. January 2, 2017 / 12:28 pm

    Loving these tips!! I am only ever organised if I write it down and am pants with washing. Will be using a few of these tomorrow before work! X Jelly

    Doing washing last thing at night good idea. Casseroles in slow cooker also excellent idea!

  4. January 2, 2017 / 8:11 pm

    This was such a great post! I was nodding along at things we already do and was loving the new ideas too. Also, I always wondered why people called dressing gowns ‘house coats’ – makes complete sense now x

      Nope, it’s right outta my brain. Shall I write one? x

  6. January 7, 2017 / 8:29 am

    I do lots of these already. I’m all for being organised and love writing shopping lists and menu planning. Can’t say I’ve ever gone to bed with knickers on my head though!! Thanks for hosting #fortheloveofblog

    I love the one about the knickers on the head! I’m not sure what my husband would think about that one haha! Completely agree with all of these – we are just about to start back at work now with two children instead of one, so I will be definitely putting some of these into use!

  9. January 7, 2017 / 8:32 am

    Fiona, this is EPIC! My hubby is ex-military and I need to show him this, he’ll want to do all of these. And potentially move in with you. Actually, maybe I shouldn’t show him… πŸ˜‰
    LOVE the knickers on the head one. And a few I already do – the washing overnight thing is so handy, laying out clothes etc, online shopping but lots of amazing tips.
    Out of interest, what do you use to schedule Facebook posts? I need to focus on FB this year! I use Social Oomph for tweets, only just getting into the swing…
    Thank you!

    Good ideas! Especially the dressing gown over work clothes (very wise!). I suspect the tips will also work for working dads #fortheloveofblog

    • January 7, 2017 / 9:41 am

      absolutely! I shouldnt be so sexist oops! Hope it won’t put you off x

  11. January 7, 2017 / 8:33 am

    You’re so organised – I’m impressed . Good idea about buying the cards I’m always missing birthdays #fortheloveofblog

  12. January 7, 2017 / 8:35 am

    I should really do some of these! Never knew about the knicker tip! We got a slow cooker for Christmas but I’m struggling to find 10-11 hour recipient and that’s how long we’re out the house for! πŸ™ what do you use for scheduling your social media if you don’t mind me asking? I need to start doing that!

    • January 7, 2017 / 9:36 am

      I ignore recipe timings and leave the slow cooker on low and routinely leave it for that amount of time. Add a tiny bit of extra liquid than in the recipe so it doesn’t dry out and it will be absolutely fine. I schedule my social media using Social Oomph – it is free to sign up and easy to use but if you go through my affiliate code they will pay me like, ooh 1p so I will love you forever πŸ™‚ http://www.socialoomph.com/98637.html

  13. January 7, 2017 / 8:44 am

    Haha I’d say your partner loves communicating with you through a synchronised calender and going to bed with you with your knickers on your head!!

    Only joking of course. Some great tips in here (even for a sahd like me)

      He is without a doubt a very lucky man! Haha x

  14. January 7, 2017 / 8:50 am

    Happy New Year, lovely lady!!!!!!! You need to write a book, Fi! Love this list! I love my slow cooker too. I have a birthday card box and write birthdays on my calendar but never seem to have the right card when I root through the box…Need a trip to the card factory, armed with my list….I’ll try and remember to take my knickers off my head first though! πŸ˜‰ #Fortheloveofblog

    • January 7, 2017 / 8:12 pm

      Happy New Year to you too Jane πŸ™‚ I so want to write a book – just have to work out what people want to read first! Watch this space πŸ˜‰ I think it is probably acceptable to visit the Card Factory with knickers still in hair though! x

  16. January 7, 2017 / 9:04 am

    I’ve already planned my menu for a month and have sat down to write out all the birthday’s I can think of – just need to shop for cards! Wondering if putting them all into moonpig to send automatically is just too impersonal! Thanks for this list!! #Fortheloveofblog

    Love the knickers on the head idea! I always organise bags and clothes the night before or exeould never get out the door! Great tips, bookmarked so I can organise myself a little better. Thanks you x #fortheloveofBLOG

  21. January 7, 2017 / 9:59 am

    You sound like my kind of girl! I love this list. As a frizzy haired, bobble marked hair person, I am actually going to try the knickers. Totally agree with the alarm setting and just wow – you are incredibly organised #fortheloveofblog

  22. January 7, 2017 / 10:17 am

    Love this post I am tempted to print it out and hang it on my fridge!! I have recently purchased a slow cooker and it has been life changing!! I need some recipe inspiration so will check out your pinterest post. #fortheloveofblog

  24. January 7, 2017 / 10:37 am

    Literally nodding at each of those! Learning to say ‘no’ is a big one for me. I love the online shopping too. Don’t do it often enough. And I really need to look into scheduling social media properly. I think I need to make a list from your list! Lol. #fortheloveofblog

  27. January 7, 2017 / 11:41 am

    Oh yes I read this before – linked through from your facebook page – and I love these ideas. Haven’t gotten round to trying the knickers trick but I’m still planning to try it! #fortheloveofBLOG

  28. January 7, 2017 / 11:59 am

    Fab ideas! Loving the blow dry tip – I do that with a plastic bobble and it works wonders. Oh and you’ve got to love a slow cooker! #fortheloveofblog

    I love this! I make lists all over the place, I forget to check them though. I too clean the shower whilst I’m in it, I often smell citrus fresh and certainly lack limescale….. The knickers thing is new to me, will certainly make sure our family doesn’t grow #forthloveofblog

  30. January 7, 2017 / 2:21 pm

    Some great tips! I have a chore list but need to start assigning it to days ahead of time else it all slips… I’m going to heed your advice.

    I got a slow cooker for Christmas so I’m getting used to that one now. I’m vegetarian so still picking out some faves.

    The knickers idea is brilliant!

    OMG I’m starting to get a panic attack about starting back at work in 3 months’ time. It was tough going back after my first mat leave and now I’ll have two little kids to look after as well as myself. I already try setting my alarm 30 mins before the kids get up but one of them ALWAYS wakes up 10 minutes before it goes off. How is that even possible??? I need to get my 8 month old sleeping through the night too. Will definitely invest in a slow cooker and DELEGATE a lot more to my hubby! #fortheloveofBLOG

    • January 7, 2017 / 8:34 pm

      Don’t want to sound like Jones in Dad’s Army but DON’T PANIC!
      You have totally got this – get organised and definitely delegate. Good luck x

I like the idea of keeping a cleaning caddy in the bathroom and also the month in view tasks tip too x joining in for the first time with #fortheloveofblog

  39. January 7, 2017 / 7:32 pm

    I’m super impressed with your level of organisation! I do a few of these things – online shopping, laying out clothes the night before, pre-pack bags – but otherwise I’m a big of a mess. I love the idea of cleaning the shower while you’re in it – genius! #fortheloveofBLOG

  41. January 7, 2017 / 7:49 pm

    Great ideas! I need to utilise my slow cooker more, I forget I have it but it makes things ten times quicker at dinner time. I will have to test the knickers trick tonight (lucky hubby haha) #fortheloveofBLOG

  42. January 7, 2017 / 8:29 pm

    Fab tips…in my head I am the most organised person but in reality I’m winging it! I write list on list and rarely get things finished, but I feel like I’m winning if we are all out of the house on time and everyone has everything they need! I do most of my shopping at Aldi and I wish they did online as it would make life so much easier!

  43. January 7, 2017 / 8:55 pm

    Ha ha knickers on your head! Love it – I must try this, even just to see my hubby’s face! You are probably one of the most organised people in the world. Your post was overwhelmingly intimidating and inspiring all at the same time….I hope I can be a quarter of how organised you are when baby B arrives……I didn’t think superwoman existed but you’ve just proved me wrong!

    iPhone sharing calendar is fricking awesome by the way! Hubby and I couldn’t live without it now….

  45. January 7, 2017 / 9:31 pm

    Amazing tips! Have started to be much more organised over the past few weeks and invested in a family planner which hassde such a difference. It can be tiring getting organised but its a good habit to have and I am aiming to stick with it for good! #fortheloveofBLOG

  47. January 8, 2017 / 1:40 am

    I’m impressed. A lot of these I already do and I’m determined to keep on top of the house and the washing this year! But knickers in your hair – thIS I have to try. AFTER hubby has gone to sleep. I don’t need him seeing it as a photo opportunity!! πŸ™‚ #fortheloveofBLOG

  49. January 8, 2017 / 6:40 am

    These are great tips! Totally with you with online shopping and the wall planner – and getting everything ready the night before! Hadn’t thought about the dressing gown – more than once baby drool has been noticed on my jacket!!! The other things I find useful is letting daughter have her tea at nursery – time saver when we get home – and holding a few days annual leave in case of sickness #fortheloveofblog

    This is brilliant thanks, like you I like everything prepped the night before. With regards to birthdays I use Funky Pigeon and make cards periodically throughout the year, you often get buy 4 and get 50% off, you can also schedule dates and they are sent directly to the recipient. I do this every few months and it makes things much easier ( other companies do this I just like FP! ) Sadly I have short hair which is towel dried every morning otherwise I would have loved to try the knickers on your head idea, Mr S would have been very bemused! Really helpful post, thank you x

  53. January 8, 2017 / 2:46 pm

    Fab tips, I am so disorganised so this really does help! I completely agree with the tip of use your slow cooker. It makes a huge difference to the stress of meal times when everything is just all in one pot ready to serve up! Thank you for having me guest host this week. #fortheloveofBLOG

    I thought this was going to be a joke post… but you really can hack life! I think the menu planning is something I really need to take up this year. #fortheloveofBLOG

  56. January 9, 2017 / 9:00 am

    Wow! Night-cap-knickers! I’m definitely going to give that a try! Really useful tips here – if I did even half of these I’d save so much time every day. Thanks for the inspiration!
    This is the first time I’ve read your blog via #fortheloveofBLOG and I think it’s awesome!

  57. January 9, 2017 / 9:12 am

    These are awesome tips! Even for us stay at home mums. I love the dressing gown idea, I would never have thought of that. I always set my alarm super early on preschool days. It winds up my husband but I like that extra time. Starting the day rushed has such a knock on effect.
    #fortheloveofBLOG

  59. January 9, 2017 / 2:16 pm

    I was really proud of myself reading this, that I do quite a few of these things already. I’m more organised than I thought! Not the knickers on the head thing though, that’s a new one for me!! #fortheloveofBLOG

  60. January 9, 2017 / 6:53 pm

    I’m typing this on my way home from my first day back at work. Im glad im not the only one who uses their time wisely!!
    I love your idea of 30 minutes extra in the morning, however a 5.45 alarm call is early enough and dont think i could cope with any earlier to be fair – especially as Ben has always been an amazing sleeper with 7,30 being the earliest he woke!!
    Im definately gonna take some of these on board. especially the saying No. Some guy offered me Β£5 to write an article. for someone wanting to get into paid ops even I said no. definately gonna say… “add a 0 on the end” haha #fortheloveofBLOG

  61. January 9, 2017 / 7:18 pm

    These are great ideas! Having a large family I love the Family Planner… I live by mine. I have to, otherwise my life would be chaotic! I also use my slow cooker almost every day! I only got mine a few months ago, I have no idea how I survived without one! #fortheloveofblog (Tried to click on your link, but its broken. Not sure if its my side or yours.)

  62. January 9, 2017 / 10:37 pm

    whoa whoa f*ckin whoa! A coffee maker with a timer????!!!!!!!! I need to get that sh*t!

    This posts is fabulous! I don’t put a robe over my clothes, i tend to just stay naked until I’m about to leave. I think robe might be slightly more appropriate tho lol #fortheloveofblog

  63. January 11, 2017 / 4:57 am

    My slow cooker and my calendar are my BEST friends when I am in a time crunch… or any time really. #fortheloveofBLOG

  64. January 11, 2017 / 5:28 pm

    Great tips. I’m getting morrow organised this year, I think it’s the new year setting in that’s giving me the extra push. Never heard of the knicker idea though, will give it a go! #fortheloveofBLOG

  65. January 11, 2017 / 5:46 pm

    This is such a fab post – your house sounds like a military operation πŸ˜‰ I also love the knickers on your head line and can confirm that using a thong to tie up your hair is most effective! Thanks for hosting #fortheloveofBLOG xx

    Good tips! I always do opposite on alarm – set for latest possible time to maximise sleep, as I don’t get much sleep, thus causing big rush for morning. But your way is more sensible! #fortheloveofBLOG

    Some great tips here! I’m awful at getting up in the morning for work though and don’t think I could get up 30 minutes earlier. Love the hair tip with knickers too – I’m going to have to give that one a go! #ForTheLoveOfBlog

    100% agree about meal plans and online shopping. We saved huge amounts by sitting down for an hour each week and planning the week ahead, rather than just hitting Sainsburys / Coop as and when.

    Knickers on your head lol I love it, I’m going to have to try it! Sports kits back into each bag is my biggest lifesaver too because I’m always losing stuff.

    Loving all these hacks that you shared! I’ll definitely take note of them since I’m a single mom as well and it’s really hard managing my day-to-day task and activities with kid plus work. Thanks for sharing this wonderful article with us!
