In amongst all my daily chores as a busy wife, mother and self-employed person, I have a large dog that needs to be walked at least 2x a day. Simple - Post letters in letter box on way to fields then run instead of walk with the dog and 3 jobs get done in the time it takes to do 1!!!

NO multi-tasking allowed. 40 Do things well the first time.
When you clean up clutter, you don't know where to begin. When you try to DO a To Do list, you are overwhelmed. Repeat after me: “Multitasking means doing many things poorly. I'm going to do one thing well at a time!” Do one thing at a time. And do it completely or you'll just have to do it again.
I have discovered I'm able to multi-task cleaning and exercising while I clean my house. I clip on my iPod shuffle and practice my Zumba moves while dusting my floors with my swiffer mop. Love getting my heart rate up burning calories and getting my floors clean at the same time! 335
If your house is chilly on a cool spring or summer morning/day, instead of turning on the heat for a half hour or hour, bake or cook something to warm up the house. Use that day to cook large meals for freezing or bake that healthier recipe you've been wanting to try. Multi-tasking at its best - warm up a chilly house, get some cooking done without cranking up the a/c, and if it is cool outside, once the house warms up, open the windows to air out the house!
Using cool days to do large cooking/baking projects will save money. When the weather forecast shows a temperature drop coming, plan to use that day to your advantage. You can also open the kitchen windows overnight and start the day bundled up until it warms up from the heat of the oven/stove.
