Ah, the age of convenience! Or that’s what they call it, right? This “modern era” that we are currently experiencing?
If you stop and think about all the things that are possible right now that were never possible in the past…well. It’s pretty mind-boggling. And it can also be intimidating or even scary for some folks.
But I’m here to say: there is SO much to take advantage of! Why not make the most of it?
So I want to see if you are making the most of the devices in your home. These are options that are meant to be used to save you time, money and sanity! Let’s look at a few examples:
1. In your garage
Are you USING your garage? It’s meant to be a place where your vehicle(s) can find shelter. This preserves the life of the car, and makes for an easy beginning to the morning, if you can reach out the door, open your garage door, click the remote start on your car and climb into a warm vehicle in a matter of minutes. You can delegate the task of going out and starting your car by hand!
2. In your laundry room
Do you know that lots of washing machine models have timers on them? For instance, I can put a load of clothes into the washer, add my detergent and set the timer for the load to begin right before I get home from work. When I arrive home, I already feel like I’ve gotten a head start, because I have laundry almost ready to move over to the dryer! You can delegate the laundry starting to the washing machine itself!
3. In your kitchen
Okay, the list here is really endless. But things like the Crock Pot and the automatic coffee machine are what I’m talking about here. The fact that you can leave your dinner to cook on its own for hours, and wake up to a fresh pot of coffee every single morning are simply miracles! I mean, that’s just all there is to it! You’ve just delegated the first thing and the last thing your body will consume in one day! (And let’s not even get started on the dishwasher…)
4. In your living room
Got a busy schedule? Gonna miss your favorite TV show? You probably have the capability to DVR or record them, or even pause live TV while you run to take care of a situation, and then resume it when you return! You can probably even stream in movies! This is real futuristic stuff, folks! And you’ve just delegated the safekeeping of your favorite show or movie to a device!
5. In your home office
If you’re like me, your printer probably prints…and copies and scans and faxes! Wow! One machine that does all of that! No more running to the closest 5-cent copy machine or hitting up your closest fax machine location! You’ve just delegated five tasks to one device!
These are just a few of the things your home can do to save you time and benefit your entire family! So take some time to delegate to the devices you have!
