Did you know that some people spend up to an hour getting ready in the morning? Some of those consuming morning activities include eating breakfast, showering, making the bed, applying makeup—among many others. Does this sound like you? Are you looking for productive ways to save time?
Sometimes, it’s as simple as having things stored smartly—a place for everything and everything in its place. This way, you know exactly where to find your lucky cuff links, favourite pair of earrings, or comfiest shoes.
Check out these brilliant storage tips for saving time!
1. Bedroom storage
A tidy bedroom translates to a tidy mind—and we could all use a clear head in the mornings. Who wants to wake up in a messy bedroom?
Try implementing practical storage solutions that are also pleasing to the eye.
You can accomplish this in several ways, from zipped bags, boxes, or baskets, to door hooks, clothes rails, and under-bed storage.
2. Dressing storage
The average woman spends four months of her life deciding what to wear to work in the mornings.
Those pesky fourteen minutes a day turn into two-and-a-half days a year—and before you know it, four months have gone by looking at your own clothing!
Take some of the confusion out of getting dressed by keeping things tidy, visible, and clean. You can do this in several ways, from drawer and/or hanging organisers to shoe organisers.
Not only do these storage ideas look functional, but they reduce space-wasters, too. Now you can save time and precious floor or closet space!
3. Make-up and jewellery storage
In the study we mentioned earlier, 16% of responders wear make-up every day, and 32% wear make-up on most days.
Simply tidying up your cosmetics can cut back on these wasted minutes. One way to make it even better is with transparent storage boxes—so, not only is your make-up organised, but it’s visible, too.
Other respondents said they argue with their roommates for bathroom time—which makes sense when you know that some claimed it takes an hour to get ready in the mornings.
Turning your bathroom into a haven of relaxation makes it not only look stylish but makes it functional. Reduce clutter with drawer organisers, suction cup wall storage, jewellery boxes, and more.
4. Kitchen storage
Are you one of the many people who spend way too much time making breakfast in the morning?
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day—so instead of skipping it (or stressing yourself out while making it), consider smarter kitchen storage. This promotes functionality, accessibility, and makes cooking a breeze.
Consider cupboard organisers, drawer organisers, magnetic wall mounts, and more.
5. Hall storage
Organise your bags, coats, and shoes in the hallway to cut down on those last minutes you spend before leaving the house.
Keep everything clean, visible, and organised. Use rails, shelves, and boxes in smart ways to save time hunting for your jacket or sneakers. Shelves keep things off the floor, reducing clutter and adding space, while also being conveniently at eye level.
It’s time to save time
Time is a luxury, and we shouldn’t waste it. Even simple storage hacks can add minutes to your day, allowing you to cruise through your mornings stress-free.
