Recent college grad now living in the real world: what are your favorite techniques, tricks, or products to get the everyday things done?`
Now that I'm working a job that requires me to put in a lot of hours, I find that I don't have any time to do the everyday things relating to cooking, cleaning, hygiene, etc. - or at least much less time than I used to. What are your favorite time-saving techniques?
My question is similar to this one
from 2005, but...well, it's from 3 years ago and it doesn't seem like a very full list. Also, the more obscure the better. For instance, I bought an electric razor, toothbrush, and an old exercise bike - now if I'm really pressed for time I can shave and brush my teeth while getting a little bit of exercise. Sounds a bit extreme, but on nights when I only have an hour at home and have been in front of a computer all day, it saves 15 minutes and is the difference between being sedentary all day and just being sedentary most of the day.
So...what are your best timesavers?
