When I am pressed for time due to kids activities, appointments and/or holidays, I bulk cook our supper's main dishes for a week or two at a time. Then I am able to put it in the crockpot or pull it out of the freezer and have it thawed by the time I get home.

No time to drag out your iron and ironing board? A straightening iron works perfectly between buttons where a regular iron doesn’t fit. And it smooths collar creases and minor wrinkles. So you can look perfectly pressed when you're pressed for time. 432
I always feel pressed for time when trying to cook dinner on weeknights & I hate eating late! So on the nights I do have time (& on weekends) I use my crockpot and make other large meals that freeze well. Ready made meals in minutes! 4
Shopping when the aisles are packed can be frustrating, especially when people are standing in front of your "go to" items and you're pressed for time.. so you grab whatever the "next best" item is and worry about it later- which can end up being not quite what you expected. Shopping when you know your store's not so busy can help eliminate the stress and hassle of trying to get exactly what you came for, and you won't be in anyone else's way either!
