1. Outfit PlanYep, even if it's just deciding on one thing that you want to wear the next day, outfit planning can really help cut out unnecessary time-wasting in the mornings. This might not be for everyone but planning a few days worth of outfits can sometimes be fun!
2. Be An Early BirdWhenever you need to make an appointment for the doctors, dentists or opticians, try and get the first available appointment in the morning. Yep, it might suck having to get out of bed but when you aren't waiting 20-30 minutes for your appointment because they're running behind, you'll thank us.
3. Food PrepFeel like you're always rushing about in the mornings trying to get things ready? If you've already got your lunch packed up and ready in the refrigerator you can just grab and go. No more abandoning half made salads! The same goes for evening meals, spend 3 nights in the week cooking bigger meals that you can portion up and keep in the refrigerator or the freezer. This way you have to cook for half the time!
4. Label FoodThis is another hack along the same lines as food prep. Help yourself up this prep even more by organizing cupboards and drawers so you can see which spices and ingredients you want to add to food. This saves you scrambling trying to find the paprika!
5. Pre-Soak PastaI mean, if it's really too long to wait 10 minutes for your dried pasta to boil up, pre-soak it for an hour and a half before you're wanting to boil it up. Not sure if this is more hassle that it's actually worth though? Let us know - would you actually do this?
6. Sort Laundry As You GoThat's if you actually do laundry and you don't just wait until you go home for the holidays! If you are a laundry kinda person make sure that you separate into darks/colours and lights as you go along in two separate baskets. This way, when you go to do your washing it's already separated for you. Or, to be even speedier, use color-catching sheets and then you don't even have to separate things!
