Have You Heard of the 15:4 Rule?

Good Morning Girls,
Have you heard of the 15:4 rule?  It is 15 minutes of planning can save you 4 hours of time. 

It's true.  For instance, taking just a moment to write things down on the calendar and checking the calendar daily can save us a ton of time.  Just think if we missed appointments or activities.  Then we need to make phone calls apologising.  If we don't take 15 minutes and plan our meals for the week then we are spending extra trips and gas running to the store for last minute items.  Have you ever rushed out the door to an appointment and forgotten something you were supposed to bring?  That means an extra trip to bring back that item you forgot.  Another example is rushing out the door to run errands and forgetting the library books that needed to be returned.  Taking just a few precious minutes to plan your day can save hours of time. 

I don't know who first came up with the 15:4 rule but the numbers are probably pretty accurate.  So take those 15 minutes and plan your day.

Happy Homemaking,
Nancy

Always a great reminder. I can't count the number of times I have to backtrack. My excuses are mostly infant related these days but still annoying to realize something got left behind
