  1. Hmm…. Creative ways to improve efficiency? I think removing the child from the household equation would improve things no end, but we kind of like him.

  2. After giving this quite a bit of thought, I’d have to say the best ways to be efficient are to not fall into the “lazy” trap and to find ways to make repetitive tasks.. well, more efficient!
    As humans these days, I think it had become very easy to get lazy. If you shake that off it’s surprising how much you can get done!
    As for making tasks more efficient, it’s amazing what you can do with some research. Anything from cleaning tips, cooking tips, anything you need! Give it a try, it makes things more fun too!

  3. I use my crockpot a lot, it’s more energy efficient than the oven. Also small things like planning ahead meals and freezing leftovers. Leftovers alone can save me two nights a week where I don’t have to cook. Freezing leftover soup in muffin tins, pop out in ziplock bags, same with herbs, casseroles etc.

  4. Make a list of chores that need doing. Have a game where whoever does the most chores from the list gets a reward paid for by the other family members!

  5. Since I have had our 3rd child I have found a roster for school days works well to keep the house running smoothly otherwise the kids sit in front of the tv & Mum is left to dress herself & 3 others. Outside that nap time for my little one is when I get most my work done because whilst he is running around my cleaning isn’t effective at all!.

    Get each member in the household to write up their top 5 dinner preferences. At the beginning of each week, draw out the 7 winning dishes. The person with the most ideas drawn out for that week is exempt from cooking 🙂

  7. Buy a Dyson vacuum cleaner. With two dogs, 3 teenage sons and a footy loving husband, I spent a LOT of time vacuuming. Now I can do it in one tenth of the time, and I reckon I get 10 times as much up.
    Also – Cut dish washer tablets in half, they work just as well as a whole tablet and you can save money towards buying a Dyson

  8. About a year ago we started creating a weekly menu before we constructed the shopping list. It definitely cut down on unnecessary items in the pantry along with the “what are we going to do for dinner?” angst.

    My next step is to write up a list of our recipe repetoire – that should cut down the time it takes to come up with the weekly menu as well.

  9. G’day guys. I’ve got a good one for you. Now this is thinking completely out of the box but:
    How about: a voice activated note pad?
    I’m primarily thinking of a shopping list but something that will convert voice to text and display it on a small LCD screen – about the size of a smartphone.
    Think how good this would be if your under a car with hands covered in grease, both hands full measuring something or trying to take a phone number down with no pen?
    The uses would be limitless.
    You guys own me a beer if it goes into production.

  10. We cook very large stir-fries and pasta type meals so that, with 3 time-consuming kids, dinner can be ready in a flash. The kids get a hand in creating these meals so it gives them the feeling of adding something to the household and that they matter. Rewards are everything so if the kids do their chores on time at the end of a week they get to watch a movie on the big screen (Displayed by a PT-AE4000 Panasonic projector!).
