Most of us have a lot on our plate. We are constantly juggling work, family, and other commitments. We are always in search of ways to save time to make the most out of every day.

But what about those days when even your best efforts don't seem to be enough? You know what I'm talking about - the days where it feels like there is just no more left in you and everything seems impossible. I think that as busy women, we need an extra boost sometimes when things get tough.

If you're a woman who is juggling multiple roles in life, it can be difficult to find time for yourself. As a busy woman myself, I know how easy it is to feel overwhelmed and forget about your own needs when there are so many others screaming for your attention. But if we don't take care of ourselves first, the rest will never happen.

Maybe you're a mom with a demanding job, and your to-do list is never-ending. Or, maybe you are just focusing on your career right now but feeling a bit overwhelmed. Whatever your situation, it's important to take a moment and evaluate what you need.

There are ways to save time on just about everything in your day. Read on for some simple tips that will help you free up some of those precious minutes so you can get more done each day and be less frazzled all the time.

1. Use a calendar to keep track of your schedule 

As I constantly juggle work, family, and personal time, it can be hard to keep track of everything. With all that's going on in your life, it can be easy to forget about important events or commitments you have coming up. Wouldn't it be nice if there was a way for you always to know what was next on your schedule? Well, now there is!

The first step to saving time is using a calendar. Many great online tools will allow you to enter everything from your work schedule, doctor's appointments, and social engagements into one easy-to-read site. This way, when it comes time for you to plan out the week ahead of you or make sure you do not forget an important appointment, you'll always have your calendar available to reference.

If you're a visual person, Pinterest is another wonderful tool when it comes to keeping track of what's next on the agenda. Search for "calendar" in their app and create boards with all different colors representing various events or appointments coming up soon.

2. Automate tasks like bill paying and email reminders 

Many people feel bogged down by the never-ending to-do list. If you're looking for a way to save time, automate tasks like bill paying, an email reminder is one way to do it! With automation, you can set up reminders on your phone and receive an alert when it's time for that task. You'll be able to focus on other things in your life without worrying about forgetting important dates or deadlines.

One of the most time-consuming tasks for many women is managing their finances. Whether it be paying bills, creating budgets, or setting up a retirement plan, these tasks can take hours out of your week. Fortunately, there are ways for you to automate these tasks and save yourself some valuable time.

I am a busy woman. I have kids, work, and community commitments. How do I find time to keep up with my bills? The answer is easy: automate tasks like bill paying and email reminders so you can spend more time doing what matters most to you.

3. Make lists, so you don't forget anything 

Ever feel like your time is constantly being wasted by forgetting something or running around like a chicken with its head cut off? You're not alone! The lack of organization in our home, work, and social lives can lead to feeling overwhelmed. One way to combat this is by using lists. Lists are a great way to keep track of everything you need for school, work, travel, errands, and more.

Women are busier than ever these days with kids, work, and social events. There's never enough time in the day to get everything done, so it's important to plan for the best results. One way to do this is by making a list of what needs to be accomplished each day. Lists can be helpful because they help you prioritize what you need to get done and remind you about anything that might have slipped your mind during the course of a busy day.

I'm the type of person who always has a list. From what I need to get done that day to packing for a vacation, I have everything written down, so there are no surprises or things forgotten. For some reason, though even with all these lists and reminders, it is still hard to remember everything on my own. 

4. Prioritize the most important things first, then work down from there 

It's hard to know what is more important, and it can be frustrating when you're trying to get things done. You might think that there are a few tasks that need immediate attention, but then realize that they are not as urgent as other tasks on your list. This is where prioritization comes in handy because it helps you figure out which task takes precedence over others.

A lot of people know the saying that you should eat an elephant one bite at a time. This is also true with prioritizing your life and work. When you are faced with a stack of tasks, it can be overwhelming to decide what needs to be done first. But if you remember to prioritize the most important things first, then work down from there, it will make everything seem less daunting.

It's easy to get overwhelmed when you have a list of things that need to be done. The best way to tackle the tasks on your list is by prioritizing what needs to be taken care of first, then work down from there. Have you ever been in a situation where you feel like there are too many things that need to be done and no time or energy left to do them all? If so, then I recommend prioritizing the most important tasks first.
