Here are some great laundry tips just to save you time.

  • Recycle wrinkled ribbon by running a warm iron over it (place it on low)
  • To dry the inside of children’s shoes quickly, put the hose of the vacuum into the shoe and turn on
  • Turn acrylics and cottons inside out when washing to avoid getting lent and such on them

Also, I found a great article on Yahoo regarding skin care and cutting down your time. I think skin care is important on anyone. I also think this will cut out a lot of unnecessary products being bought.




Step 1: Cleanse
Dr. Schweiger says there’s no need for a fancy, expensive makeup remover, so cut down on time and your beauty budget by thoroughly washing with a gentle cleanser that removes products and oil but doesn’t over-dry. 
Time spent: three minutes

Step 2: Moisturize

No matter what your skin type, you should slather on a light lotion to your face and neck every night. For this, Dr. Schweiger says to look  for oil-free products that are also fragrance-free. 
Time spent: two minutes

Step 3: Apply retinoids

“Of all the anti-aging and photo damage correction products on the market, retinoids have the most scientific evidence,” explains Dr. Schweiger. He says retinoid creams, either prescription or over-the-counter, can be the most beneficial. “Retin-A, Renova, and Tazorac have been shown, in one month or two, to decrease fine lines and wrinkles.” Three times a week use a pea-size amount on your face, and once or twice a week apply the cream under your eyes to banish those dark circles. Retinoids should always be applied at night since they can make your skin more sensitive to the sun.
Time spent: three minutes

Step 4: Hydrate

“Toners are not necessary—they over-dry the skin and can actually increase oil production, and then the cycle is hard to break,” says Dr. Schweiger. But he does suggest a final application of moisturizer after the retinoid cream to prevent redness and flaking, especially in the winter when skin is drier
Time spent: two minutes

Really, that’s it! Ten minutes of devoted attention is all your face needs before bed. If you follow these steps every evening, an a.m. quick rinse with face wash and a light SPF will get you out the door and on your way to a gorgeous glow.
