Five Suggestions To Simplify Your Daily Life

Published 6:44 am Wednesday, July 25, 2012

(NAPSI)—Life can be a little less complicated if you consider these hints to help simplify daily life:

1. Before you barbecue. Preslice and chop veggies for sides the day before a family barbecue. Similarly, bake treats the night before, cool and seal them in air-tight containers. Cutting back on prep the day of an event means more time to mingle and enjoy the company of family and friends.

2. Simplify s’mores. Portion out s’mores supplies for a camping trip by placing equal amounts of marshmallows, graham squares and chocolate pieces into separate baggies for each camper. When the time comes to roast this favorite treat around the fire, there will be no scrambling for supplies and no one will worry about missing out on the chocolate!

3. Break up cleaning projects. Spread household chores throughout the week. Pick a time to clean every day and pair each room with a specific day of the week; for instance, always declutter the living room on Tuesdays. Set a timer for 20 to 30 minutes, and tackle that daily chore.

4. Tote a gym bag. Pack a gym bag with workout clothes, a towel and a water bottle and keep it at your desk or in your car. Having these items easily accessible will make it easier to seize any window of opportunity for exercise.

5. Stock the kitchen. Avoid the weekday “what’s for dinner?” crunch by stocking a few staples in the pantry. Keeping dried grains or pastas from the bulk aisle, frozen veggies, favorite proteins and fresh salad greens in the pantry or fridge helps when busy days call for throwing together a quick meal. Stock up on R.W. Knudsen Family Just Juice juices to use in a quick salad dressing or reduction sauce with wholesome fruity flavors.
