Make Your Weekends Longer PDF Print E-mail
By Melissa Tosetti
What are your plans for this weekend?  Do you have a big project to do on the house?  Are you going to spend the weekend baking in the kitchen?  Are you planning a movie marathon? 
Weekends are a precious time to relax, rejuvenate and do the things we want.  Why not give yourself even more time to enjoy being away from work?  Instead of waiting until Saturday morning to go to the video store and rent your movies, do it on your way home from work on Friday.  You just added an extra 30 minutes to your weekend!
That big baking project?  Pick up what you need during the week so you can immediately roll up your sleeves and start baking on Saturday morning instead of having to trek to the grocery store first.  By the time you get home from the store you'll be tired from fighting the crowds and will likely need to relax for awhile before you get in the kitchen.
The last place anyone wants to be on a weekend is at the home improvement store because EVERYONE is there.  Pick up what you need during the week so you can focus your time, energy and effort on actually doing your project.
In addition to saving time, by planning what you need for your weekend in advance, you will also be able to do a little research to find the best price for your supplies. 
Simplify Summer PDF Print E-mail

By Melissa Tosetti

Is your summer schedule packed with social commitments?  Are there BBQ’s, drinks with friends and outdoor gatherings scrawled across your calendar?

We are lucky to have so many fun and wonderful events to take advantage of, but it can get out of control – especially during the summer months.  This season, consider setting aside at least one weekend-day a month to slow down and simplify.  Instead of running from event to event:

  • Spend the day reading.
  • Rent a handful of movies for your own personal movie marathon.
  • Cook that new recipe you’ve been wanting to try.
  • Putter in the garden.
  • Sleep in!

We often forget that ultimately, we have control of our schedule and it’s ok to say no to invitations. 

Take it a step further and set aside one night per week to enjoy at home.  You’ll be amazed at the positive impact one sacred night a week can make on your health and happiness! 

Living The Savvy Life isn't just about spending your money wisely.  It's about spending your time wisely as well.
