This week at Family Fun Friday we are looking at ways we can save time and simplify. There is always so much to do and so little time to do it all. Since we can’t magically add more time to our day let’s get some tips from other busy parents for saving time and simplifying our lives. A quick and easy cinnamon roll recipe will help you put a delicious meal on the table and cost you little time in the kitchen. The cooler weather is here, a great excuse to clean out and declutter that closet with a seasonal clothing switch. Holiday parties and family dinners are filling up our calendars, finding your perfect planner is a great way to stay organized.
Our moms are sharing their favorite fun finds this week. Cooking a pumpkin can be easier than you think and the whole family can join in. We are also sharing 20 natural ways to fight cold season because who has time to be sick? With so much already on our to-do list, let’s spend a little bit of time learning how we can save time and simplify our lives.

Decluttering, planning, quick food, staying healthy – these are all great ways to save time and keep you (and me) on track.
