It is that time of year again – busy season. Days are long and strenuous and sometimes they last into the night. Personal commitments are pushed to the sideline. Laundry piles up and you have no food in the refrigerator. Life is on hold until April – oh can’t April come soon enough.
To help cope with the stresses of busy season, here are some tips and time savers that you can use to help optimize your time, be more productive, and have your days go by a bit easier.
Seamless makes take-out, well, seamless. Don’t have time to step away from your desk for lunch or are you working through dinner? Go on Seamless to place your order from any of the local take-out restaurants in your area.
