I double or triple meals and freeze the extras for future meals. This can be done with spaghetti sauce as well as roasts and meatloaf for example. Then when time is short pull something out of the freezer and you are ready for dinner. Besides saving time this will also save energy.

When baking or cooking stove top, I cut off the oven (or stove) BEFORE the items are thoroughly cooked. The heat that remains continues to cook (bakery items leave 10 minutes to complete, stove top depends on item). Helps keep kitchen cooler and electricity bill lower.

Flies love windows; windows love Windex! When a fly or two sneaks into the house, I pick up the Windex and a piece of paper towel. When the fly lands on a window or sill, I give it a quick spritz with Windex. It slows the fly down so it can now easily be caught. Then I wipe the surface clean!

Spray the plant with water in your sink and let it dry on the counter; and if it is a large tree, take it outside and spray with your hose and let the sunshine dry it.
I find this is a time-saver during spring cleaning.
