This month our Creative Team has been focusing on something we all wish we had more of; TIME.
I don't know about you, but I am constantly wishing for more!! Seems like there is never enough time in my day to get to all of the things I need to do and then the things I want to do! So this month I have been focusing on finding more time by participating in the "30 days 30 Bags" challenge that has been posted on Instagram and other Social Media Sites. The basic premise of this challenge is to go through one's house, garage, etc and gather 30 bags of items to donate, sell, or throw away within those 30 days. Now, granted, I didn't read anywhere that one had to complete these 30 days consecutively (ahem) so I am doing my best to keep on track but if I miss a few days here or there and I end up taking 45 days to complete the challenge? Well, I am confident I will still be pleased and happy with the results of my efforts. And I am certain I will then have more time in my life for work + play. And that, makes this busy momma happy. If you decide you want to join in on this challenge, follow others and myself along this journey on Instagram/Twitter with the hashtag "#30days30bags. Feel free to link me up here in the comment section with your progress. :)
Also, another way I have found to stay on track in my day and to save time in one area AND to make time in another, is with cleaning and tech time. Basically, I set a timer for 20 minutes to check email, surf etc. When the timer is done, I move on to the next chore, say folding laundry. This really helps me keep on task and not procrastinate. Do I do this every single day? No. (But let me tell you, the days I do??? SOoooo much more productive!) BTW:**I first heard of this idea at flylady.net I believe. She has lots of helpful everyday hints there. ;)
Now, on to a few scrappy items related to time. :)
First up is a quick card I made from the upcoming February@lbdkitclub (which is fabulous and has some of the latest CHA releases in it).
And some sneaks of a layout created with Little Black Dress' Feb Kit whose journaling focuses on how things change and don't change with time. :)
Here's to finding more time in your day. Hope you have had fun hopping along here today and picked up a few little nuggets that might just help you shave time off in the work area and more time into you play time. ;)
I will be hosting an Instagram giveaway today, with some new CHA releases. Be sure to follow me along on Instagram and Twitter "@SuzMannecke" and #SMBiGbloghop for a chance to win. Tag a friend and have them follow me and they could win some goodies too!
Have a beautifully productive, time-saving day! :)
