  • I take my toothbrush into bed with me! I curl up and get some precious alone time with a good book while I brush. I'm multitasking to get some Me time, but it also gets me brushing much, much more thoroughly. My teeth have never been so clean!

  • This is a wasteline saver. After dinner, when I am craving dessert, I cut up some fresh strawberries and put them in a bowl with a scoop of Cool Whip Lite (fat free would work too, or even regular Cool Whip isn't that bad). Anyway, it's totally delicious - it's like strawberry shortcake without the cake or guilt!

  • I run a medium load of washing every morning and put it in dry as I get out to work. I fold it in the evening. This way my loads are smaller and are much easier than running big loads in the weekend. Also we do not have to listen to the dryer noise!

  • I get up at 4:15am and head to the gym before work. I know it sounds early but I also couldn't imagine working out after supper.

  • Instead of making it into the office for early morning meetings, I dial in during my commute (hands free of course!) It has made my days much easier to start as I'm not trying to cram in getting the kids ready, off to school and Steve McQueening through traffic to make it into the conference room. It gives me a back at lease an hour.

  • Keep a balloon in your purse at all times. (Deflated, of course!) It is guaranteed to keep your kiddo happy when you're stuck in line at the post office, window shopping, or trying to chat with a friend you just bumped into.
