What life hacks can you give us to save time in life? I'm tired of doing stuff myself and I want an easy way out. What do you do in life to avoid basic bitch stuff?

Live near where work or study. You shouldn't have to lose an hour every weekday getting places.

this.

commute time is basically unpaid and unproductive work hours. which lowers your effective pay rate.

why not an all-in-one appliance that also cooks and cleans?

Q: why does a bride wear white?

A: so the dishwasher matches the refrigerator.
>>
>>1275349
Thermomix

Yes, expensive, but man, if you stick to stuff that can be done in one bowl i.e. mixed and cooked by the Thermomix its both delicious and saves loads of time.

Stop spending half your waking life consuming digital media out of boredom, suddenly you'll have tons of time for stuff, and you won't even have to spend thousands on dishwashers (impractical in single households anyway), vacuuming robots, window cleaning robots or internet thermostats.
>>
>>1275664
But I consume digital media because it's fun. Chores are boring..
>>
>>1275664
Yeaaah... This era of smartphones and constant internet access everywhere sucks. And I'm an old-fashioned who isn't that obsessed with this thing. Just think about the poor youngsters who can't entertain themselves without internet access...

But I found out that listening to audio books while doing chores makes it nice. Then I'm concentrating on the book, not on the chores. Yay!
>>
>>1275349
A Roomba honestly is pretty fucking sweet.

>freeze raw, preprepared food in portions.

e.g. burger patties - takes roughly the same time to mix the meat and spices (and whatever else you like in there) whether it's for 6 patties or 20. Then individually cling wrap the raw patties and freeze them. Now you cannhave fresh, cheap, delicious burgers whenever, with almosy zero hassle - the past you did all the work.

Good going, past you.
>>
Honestly I'm probably saving the most time cooking several portions at a time and then either emptying them over the course of three days in the fridge or - if you want a bit more variety - eating one and freezing the rest and then reheating various single portions from the freezer. Cooking single portions is a huge waste of time, and honestly I'd have to throw away half my ingredients all the time.

If only was that easy, I have to lose up to 2 hours a day because bus is slow as fuck. I'm considering buying a motorcycle or an e-bike, since parking a car in my city would take twice as long.
>>1275448
This, I have one, just dump the ingredients in and wait, recipes are spot on.

I also recommend installing motion activated lights in your hallways, it might seem silly, but it's really convenient and saves energy.

A roomba is also a good purchase, I spend 1 hor a week cleaning.

It's also nicer to reinvent the food.

Leftover chicken goes in a wok (additional ingredients - noodles and ve and spices). Time to make, as chicken is already cooked - 5-7 minutes

Wash dishes immediately after using them, never get dishpan hands again.
Reorganize your dresser from individual items (sock drawer, shirt drawer, pants drawer) to outfits suited to activity and weather (work drawer, play drawer, inclement drawer); grab a bundle and hop in the shower when you get up each morning.
Take your shoes off at the door, sweep/mop less often because most dirt is tasked into, rather than generated within, the house (parents: YMMV).

Even just doing little things like that will free up noticeable bits of time, things will go a little bit more smoothly, and stress levels go down.

To live anything resembling a modern life you have to do chores. Most people have shit habits doing them and it makes them take longer than you need them to.

>Dishwasher
Always put forks all in one spot. Then all knives in one spot, etc. When you run it you just need to grab them all and toss them in the drawer. Sort when putting them in there, not when taking them out. I've seen WAY too many people who do this wrong and just throw random utensils in and then waste time sorting.

>Laundry
Similar plan. As you fold, sort into piles that match your drawers/whatever. Nothing is dumber than people who fold into random piles, then bring the laundry to wherever they put it away and have to then sort it one by one.

>Socks
Stop fucking owning more than a few styles of sock or you waste so much time sorting them. Have one regular sock and one dress sock. Maybe one specialty sock if you need a tall work sock or something. Throw away every sock you own and buy a shitload of one type.

>Cooking
One giant, cheap crockpot meal a week. Make rice or pasta on the side. Pork shoulder, chicken thighs, beef chuck. All cheap and work with tons of different flavors to have some variety.

>Commute
If it is long, best make the most of it. Don't be in silence or garbage music. Get some audio books or relevant podcasts. It takes your mind off driving and turns wasted time into something you would do sitting on the couch anyway.

>Chores
Shop once a week or less. Only in stores that are next to each other even if you have to spend a few more bucks to shop somewhere else. Stop wasting time shopping. Lots of super markets offer delivery or pickup groceries now. Buy in bulk during good sales. Get a big chest freezer for cheap and store extra stuff from sales.
>>

I paid $100 from a no kill shelter who rescues dogs on a county shelters kill list. And $200.00 for a very young dog who was at a different shelter. I pay $45 bucks a month for both pet insurance and $15 a month for both for flea tick heartworm and worm medication.

I spend 50 every two months for food, and 10 or 15 on milk bones.

I get a bark box every month for 20 bucks.

So somewhere under 1500 hundred a year including treats, medication toys and other stuff.. For both..

So, if both dogs live 12 years, about 18 thousand.

My roi isn't monetary its emotional. And to me worth it. My lab mix would die for me. He would fight 10 bears off if he could.

I wouldn't trade our lazy days, walks, laughs, and plays for a lousy 1500 a year.

Set ALL of your bills to auto-pay. You owe them anyway, and you'll never have to worry about if they're paid or not. If you want to see the amount you paid for something just check your bank account, you should be keeping an eye on this anyway.

Put dishes directly into the dish washer. You'd be surprised how much time is wasted in your life moving them from the sink to the dishwasher every single time you want to do a load.

Brush your teeth in the shower. Also get a suction cup mirror and shave in the shower.

Buy in bulk, especially for non-tangible items. Get the biggest pack of paper towels, toilet paper, etc. you can. Typically you pay less per roll this way, and you don't have to shop as often
>>
Not making thus thread, or not reading the replies.

You can never know how life turns out, so even if you get a dishwasher, you might miss out on another ultimately even bigger timesaver that you would have encountered down the road if only you chose the lifepath that involves you doing the dishes manualy.

tldr: just live

Disposable plates and a minimum of cups, plates and gut wrenches make life simple and easy. I have a dishwasher but don't use it often. I leave a plastic tub of strong detergent and water in my sink. When I use a plate utensil it goes there. Washing is a quick rinse later on. I break up a dishwasher detergent pack into my dish detergent bottle and use that instead of paying stupid money for the same thing in water.

Learn to microwave effectively. Pyrex is my friend. Potatos are cheap and perfect for nuking. Stews, soups etc ditto. Foods you don't have to cook like fruit can be healthy and time-saving.

I shave in the shower without a mirror (you presumably know your own face) then take a few seconds to touch up after. Hot water is invigorating and softens beard.

I don't do coffee unless I need the sugar boost. Bulk caffeine pills get the job done. I don't smoke but use nicotine to take the edge off the absurd amounts of caffeine I need to function due severe sleep deprivation due to pain from neck damage. Nicotine lozenges are cheap, convenient and zero waste.

Barber trips waste time and money. I've used an Andis commercial pet clipper with #50 blades for many years. I shave my head for comfort and convenience. I follow up with an electric razor while surfing da web.

I buy bulk and use a chest freezer. It save trips and gets you deals. Mine is full of ribeyes my bro brings back from Minnesota. It's surprisingly cheap to eat steak every day if you source wisely.

I grill on the porch to avoid kitchen mess. That saves a shitload of work and avoids heating the house.

Geez that looks terrible. "We reinvented simplicity" then go down the list to talk about all the parts and buttons and gizmos where if any one of them breaks the whole thing is useless.

Write your grocery shopping list in order of where stuff is located in the store. That way you're not running all over the store when you get there.

If there's anything you do daily that's annoying, find a solution. For example every night when I showered a little water would drip out of the tub onto the floor. I bought curved splash guards that directs the water back in the tub, and now I never have to clean up water on the floor again. I installed a detachable shower head on a hose to easily clean soap and shampoo off the shower walls.

>pro tip: buy a curved shower curtain rod, that shit is god tier. If you ever wanna buy something for less than $40 that will improve your life dramatically (because you shower every day) that's a thing to buy

yes, moron, if you pay more attention to whatever you're listening to/fiddling with your phone to put on whatever faggot shit you feel like having vomited into your piddly brain, you're more liable to crash. instead of retardedly trying to be "productive" when driving, why don't you focus on not killing anyone and driving defensively. dumbasses like you who think they can "think about other things" while driving are the reason so many people die in car accidents daily. treat driving like what it is: a dangerous convenience that can turn very deadly much faster than you can react.

>How

-1 minute getting wet/lathering

it can be cut down more, or you can take longer depending on your routine. but standing in the shower with your water running while your brush your teeth is way more wasteful than just taking 2 minutes after your shower to brush and floss properly.

Take your clothes straight from the washer and hang wet on hangers in your closet. This demands a rather large closet with open air and quite a lot of hangers, but its worth both building one and buying hangers, as it both saves time and wears a lot less on your clothes than tumbledrying.

I have been doing this for about five years, figured it out in my student room, and when i moved into a house about the first thing i did was to put up two steel pipes above eachother for this reason.

Plus none of your clothes gets forgotten about in the bottom of a drawer.

Don't fill up your car until the gas light comes on. You'll fill up less in life and it makes sure you use up as much of the old gas as possible.

Keep your tools organized. Nothing worse than trying to do a project and you can't find anything.

Sometimes it's ok to pay someone else to do something for you. Mow the grass, rake the leaves, a maid to clean your house, etc.

This is such bullshit. Every test I have seen(I did a lot of research before I bought.), the square fronts did equally shit in corners. And the bulky fronts makes them maneuver very clumsily around tight areas like underneath chairs or tables. This is because the front doesn't let it turn into any directions while standing still, the front will bump into walls or chair legs.

So you basically off trade worse maneuverability for nothing.

And its not even an issue to begin with just the air from the side brush is enough to kick up and snag any dust-bunny's anyway, so after not vacuuming for 4 months I still have no problems with dusty corners. Maybe heavyer particles can build up over time, but the shitty neato sure as hell wont get them any better than a xiaomi or Roomba.

Years ago my girlfriend paid a fortune for an Afghan hound that had championship papers. It was beautiful but had serious mental problems; if you touched it in any way it would stiffen and look at you out of the corner of its eye, but not really making eye contact.

She eventually tried to GIVE it away, and people were like "wow, thanks!" but a few days later they'd bring it back. She eventually abandoned it at her parent's place where I assume they fed it until it died.

Extremely simple, single pot only (second pot for cooking rice but that's up to you, my mother ate it with bread), cheap as fuck especially during the bell pepper season where you can buy a 15kg bag of bell peppers for like 8 EUR.

>chop some kielbasa, and fry it in the Wok
>chop some onions, add to kielbasa
>fry a few minutes
>chop some zucchini or eggplant and add it to the onion and kielbasa before onions get soft
>salt, black pepper, SHITLOAD of sweet (smoked is dabest) paprika powder
>chop bell peppers and add to the rest
>a can of peeled and chopped tomatoes
>cook until it releases some moisture, but the hardness of the vegetable is up to preference I like them hard and crunchy but my sister likes it mushy
>serve with rice
A portion made from 3 kielbasas, two large onions, 3-4 bell peppers, half a zucchini, and a small can of potatoes lasts me for dinner and supper for 2-3 days. You just cook some rice.

> (impractical in single households anyway)

All of those other things you listed are portable, can move with you from household to household. I like the idea of a bachelor size dishwasher that is portable. Figure, something just a little larger than a microwave. It sits on the counter next to the sink, connects to the faucet, drains into the sink. Only 1 rack. Capacity for a day’s worth of dishes from 1 or 2 people. Uses a couple gallons of water.

Ok, I had the vision, somebody else make it happen. I get 30%.

This here- commute time is so important to quality of life.
I live in a NYC northern suburb, and had a 20 minute commute. I got a raise and a promotion and ending up getting a commute of about 1 hour. I hated it.

I have a friend that commutes 1.5 hours into NYC for work. And another that takes a bus, then a commuter line to the subway from Jersey-almost two hours.

The amount of time they spend on their commute is obscene.
They don't want to acknowledge that NYC sucks. NYC is only good if you are really poor and can live in a subsidized apartment near wall-street, or really rich, and can afford to live in a 10 million dollar home across the street the subsided apartment projects.

Is money a factor?

If it is then organization and effective habits will save time.

Now if money is not a factor. Hire a maid to wash laundry and clean the house once a week "if its needs more than that you need are disgusting or have high expectations". This is not a wife. You can exchange this person whenever. Don't commute to work its a waste of time. If you are hourly you are not making money. If you are salary its a waste of personal time. Get a robo cleaner that can be set to a schedule when the maid is not there. Meal prep.
>>
Quit you job, start something at your own and do your own schedule. Its much simpler than it look like. If you're good at computer for example, calculate how much you can charge and take your brake when you want and skip traffic and/or charge for every move you make.

Stop washing yourself everyday, do it every 2 days. If you're someone who smell turkey has much has some people, it doesn't change anything at your odour.

Check out how much you can save on sleep. There's way to skip an hour or two sleep without missing any of it. Personnaly, I sleep two times a day. I see an opportunity and I know I wont do anything worth my time, then sleep and take other normal sleep time to do something else.

>What do you do in life to avoid basic bitch stuff?

Buy a condo or live in an apartment = No outside maintenance. The downside is neighbors.

If you have a cat, get a litter robot. It's expensive as fuck, and worth it.

Two dishwashers, one for clean, one for dirty. 80% of your dishes you use straight out of the dishwasher. Put dirty dishes in the dirty dishwasher. If you've used most of the clean dishes, go ahead and start loading the dirties in it and run it. Unless your mom lives with you there is no reason to empty it and put them all away every time. The drawer dishwashers are good for this.

Set your bills to autopay more than the normal monthly payment every month. I get refund checks from my electric company and water company once a year from this. (Fuck At&t, where my bill is never the same two months in a row.)

+1 for audiobooks as others mentioned.

Have _less_ stuff. My mom had literally hundreds of christmas decorations that had to be put up and taken down every year. That made me hate holidays because it was an assload of work. I have a ( uno one singular ) wreath and am happier for it.

"Please place me on your do not call list." & "Unsubscribe" are your friends.

Social media is not your friend. This is a pipeline of bullshittery you don't have to put up with.

Adblock plus.

Throw away all of your socks and replace them with black crew socks. When they fade, throw them out and replace. Matching socks is not a productive use of your time.

I'd like to recommend combination washer-dryer units, but I can't. I've tried them and they suck.

Steam, not iron.

If you can Carpool with a dependable person, this can give you hours of your life back. Vanpool is even better because the schedule is more predictable.

If you like to make or build stuff, join a Makerspace. You get access to tools and workspace without having to own, service, and store them. If you do this, clean up after yourself. ATX in Austin is awesome.

I replaced my cotton socks (so all my sock) with regular(not thick) woolen socks.

No more feet smell.

Wool doesn't absorb moisture, it breathes really well, so all the moisture is transported out and not collected in your socks. Also way more durable.

Nope, every step you take, you circulate air in your shoes. With cotton, that air has left it's moisture in your socks and doesn't get out. With wool, it does.

Believe me, I threw away all my other socks after having bought one woolen pair and tried them (wool doesn't mean thick) , and then bought more of them instead.

Good advice. My dad always buys cheap piece-of-shit tools from Harbor Freight (cheapo big-box-mart for Chinese tools). Every time he works on something, he has to sort through a bin of broken half-functional shit tools that had horrible tolerances to begin with, and started falling apart after the first use.

If I need to buy a tool that I plan to use more than once, I buy a good one. In the long run, I save money, and I have a better user experience.

What a deeply ignorant comment to make, you shouldn't be behind the wheel if you aren't willing to give the activity of driving your complete attention. There is still ongoing research into the effect of distractions on drivers, its very complex issue. Similarly no passenger should have any expectation of interaction with the driver should they need to concentrate on the task at hand.
If you feel comfortable interacting with passengers as a driver then that is your choice. If as a passenger you aren't comfortable with the amount of concentration a driver is giving the road then simply don't put totally yourself in that position.
As a driver you should absolutely not react aggressively to a distracting passenger,simply pull over as soon as it's safe and tell them you refuse to continue under these circumstances,suggest get out o r shut up.

>Don't fill up your car until the gas light comes on. You'll fill up less in life and it makes sure you use up as much of the old gas as possible.
No. Just, no.
you should treat half a tank as an empty tank as much as possible, and fill up whenever you have the time. if something fucked up happens and you need to be far away asap, you're probably not going to want to stop for gas.
even if it's nothing fucked up, if you think there's going to be a gas station and there isn't, or you get caught in a storm or something.
it's a good idea to always keep lots of gas in the tank.

Yo for reals, wake up earlier, don't drink coffee and see how long you can go without breakfast. I used to be a bitch in the morning and had to spend an hour making a big ass breakfast with coffee to feel awake. Now I've got like 4 open hours in the morning and I'm fine eating just a yogurt or a banana.

Nah you can schedule them to run whenever you want. Mine is set for Tuesday and Friday starting at 9am. Not to be a Roomba shill but they've dramatically improved them with the new 980 model. They now go in straight lines instead of the random zig zag lines. You can also set them for two passes where they do the entire room forward and backwards, then a second time side to side. There's also an edge clean where the last thing they do is run the boarder to get any dust bunnies or whatever that may have been blown against the sides. Also with the 980 it does an entire floor, not just room by room. Press the button and it cleans until the battery runs low, recharges, then picks back up where it left off until the whole floor level is clean. You don't get that with the China knockoffs, nor do they have near the level of aftermarket support

The problem is that it disintegrates rather than degrades. So you end up with fuckloads of bits of microscopic plastic in everything causing all kinds of problems at the cellular level.

They automatically go back to the docking station when the battery gets low. The 980 has six sensors (circled) on the bottom to detect stairs. I run mine upstairs on carpet all the time and it's never once fallen down the stairs. People don't realize with the older models you have to take them from room to room in order to get the job done completely. Otherwise they just run around until their battery is almost dead and then they dock and that's all they clean. You'll have to physically put the older models in one room at a time in order for them to fully clean each room. The 880 model has about enough battery for about 3 average rooms, but once it's outta juice it docks and that's that. I got the 980 because it cleans until the battery gets low, docks, recharges, and picks up where it left off until the whole floor level has been done.

One more cool thing is you can see a map of where it cleaned on your phone. This is my downstairs and you can see the white area where she had to dodge obsticals like the couches and coffee table in the middle of the living room. I got no affiliation with the company but I get irritated when I see someone trying to say a Chinese knockoff is better just because it's cheaper. It's cheaper because it's shit and there's no parts support for them. Suckers buy them and get disappointed when it doesn't do what they thought it would. I did my homework because it was pricy and I didn't wanna get duped. I can honestly say the 980 is a quality product that works and works well. From first hand experience I can truely reccomend it. Cleans up all my pet hair. A small price to pay to never have to sweep or vacuum again

We spent 120 bucks on a Samsung one a couple months ago. It kind of sucks a dick at actually vacuuming carpet, but it picks up dog hair GREAT on the laminate/tile (most of the house now, all of it soon). It's the reason why we bought it. Its got a rubber flap that deploys down on against a wall and scrapes the shit into the vacuum. Best 120 bucks of my life (have 3 labs, all black).

Live with your family, like a tribal unit
Cooking energy for 5 is almost the same as the energy used by 1, you'll wash 2 pots every 5 ppl instead of 2 per 1.
Reheating your meal 3 or 4 times wont be efficient.
If one perdón cleans the kitchen, the hall and the main room he/she will waste less energy than 5 ppl cleaning 4 or 5 different kitchens.
Even washing a bulk of clothes is slightly effective.
Tv, internet, pests, etc are slightly better in family.
An example: I eat 5 boiled eggs a day, i save gas by not frying em (3 eggs wouldnt be efficient) but when we are 4 i use the same energy for our 14 boiled eggs (9 for breakfast)
Source...ive been taking care of my mom's House for 10 years and my grandmas taught me how to do all the chores since i was a kid, we Cook in family every catholic festivity.

>Laundry

Buy laundry bags and fill them with different clothing types (shirts, jeans, dress clothes, undergarments, etc) and wash conditions as necessary, as they get dirty. Then, not only you only have to handle a few large items on wash day, you also don't have to sort your clothes before or after.

Also, hang or fold clothes immediately after you dry them and you'll rarely have to iron for clothes that wrinkle.

>Dishwasher

Get in the habit of always cleaning dishes, especially cooking ones, as they're used. Washing dishes is way easier and less gross when they're fresh and not caked in shit.

They make headphones that look like ear protection. Don't know if that helps you or not depending on your company's hearing protection.

If you really hate your life switch jobs. I gave up $4/hr, 3 weeks vacation, 7+ years seniority to change careers and it was the best decision I ever made.

I wired a switch controlling a receptacle under my book case headboard to turn on a lamp, saves from getting up and turning the light on and off.

Well whenever i get wet clothes out of the washing machine i put all my shirts immediately on the respective coat hangers and put them (with a little distance between one another) in the place where they're supposed to dry and they stay there until i need them.
I also chose the clothes from the clothesline before i take anything out of one of the cabinets (except on special occations).

The third thing may be a little nasty, but i use worn clothes as rags before i wash them, that way I reduce the amount of shit that needs washing.

if you really want to save a lot of time then remodel your house so it becomes self cleaning.
to do this you basically need too turn your house into a dishwasher.
this can be expensive and time consuming and very impractical depending on your current house.( think about all the potential water problems and the piping needed) but if you get it done then you will not have to clean stuff unless it cannot be washed clean

Women are children on a mental level. They are biologically wired for repetitive tasks which is what they did in the cave age, process food, take care of the kids, etc.

The man was wired to be inventive and creative, his hunting trips were never alike and he had to adapt to the enviroment and invent new ways of putting food in the table.

Ever wondered why crotcheting and such is such a big thing to women? Or why they excel in school at regurgitating previously heard information? There is no actual job inequality, just tasks that are more attractive to one gender than to the other.
