Tightwad Tuesday: Time Management

Do you always feel like there are more projects to do than hours in the day? I know I do often but what works for me is detailed to do lists. I've always been a huge fan of the to do list, but recently I've been putting every little detail on the list. I find I can get twice as much done if I write it down. It clears that space from my head which allows me to focus on other things. I also tend to write a day or time of the week next to it so I can plan my week. Things do not always get done on that day, but it helps to somewhat organize the chaos.

My other time management tip is to just do it. Sometimes the hardest part is getting started. My son does not play on his own for long, but I can usually get a few 10 minute stretches at a time each day. I try to tackle one thing from my list at that time. It always feels so good once I get something marked off the list and sometimes he even offers to help out once he is done playing.

What are your favorite time management tips?
