Timesaver - Setting Timer Or Alarm


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

One of the biggest timesavers is to set a timer/alarm to go off when you need to start dinner. On days you’re so busy to watch the clock, it can get too late to start cooking a meal. Actually, setting the timer to remind you it is time to do any task can be a huge timesaver.

    I do this with many things, but never really thought about it for starting dinner...and believe me, I need to do this. I just get caught up in whatever I am doing, especially Sparking, that I forget to get started on dinner when I should.

    I use my cell phone alarm more than I use my alarm clock. I love the idea of using a timer for dinner...although I also have a pretty good timer for tummy rumblings. lol Great idea!

    I'm so use to putting a timer on for things that I cook or need. I really didn't think about using a timer for other things. That's a really good idea. emoticon

    Most cell phones have an alarm system. Make use of it for that purpose!!
