             This post is a little out of the ordinary, but I hope you find the information helpful!  When I set my sights on a new goal at the beginning of the year (or at any other time) one of my first thoughts might be, “But when will I have the time to do this?”  Will this goal feel exciting and empowering as I work towards it, or does it feel like yet another line item on my to-do list?  What I really need to do, before I add more items, is take some stuff OFF my plate and go through my days efficiently.  I want to spend less time on “have tos” and more time on “want tos.” 

 Here is a list of helpful suggestions, web sites, and apps that can trim the time you spend on “have tos” and create more time for “want tos”…
