How To Improve Your Time Management

Ask anyone living in Los Angeles what the number one reason they can’t get anything done and they’ll tell you, “The traffic.” On any given day, no matter where you’re headed, it always seems like there is an endless traffic jam ahead of you. Smart drivers factor in the potential for traffic jams and add 30 minutes to their departure time. But that is 30 minutes that could have been put to more productive pursuits. Avoiding traffic isn’t always an option but improving your overall time management skills is. Here’s how to get more time back in your day:

Make a List

Perpetual list makers are often chided by their friends for having everything planned out down to the last detail but those folks are onto something. When you make a list of things to do, you instantly get a visualization of how your day is going to go. You can prioritize those items so the ones with a deadline take your focus. Other tasks like running errands could be put off until the next day. The added benefit of making a list is that is frees up your mind. Instead of constantly trying to remember what you need to get done, the list is there for you.

Cut Back on Events

You don’t have to go to every single thing you’re invited to. Yes, there are some friend and family obligations that you need to be a part of but are you really going to miss out if you go to a party this week with the same people you want to a part with last week? If you do feel compelled to go out, then set yourself a time limit. Don’t go someplace where you’re dependent on someone else for a ride home. Show up, have fun and then get home in plenty of time for a good night’s sleep.

Combine Efforts

Looking over your list of things to do should have you looking for opportunities to combine some of those efforts. Try to schedule meetings around your errands. If you have to pick up dry cleaning, then meet at the coffee shop close to the cleaner. A day that has several meetings is another place for time limits. Give yourself some buffer time to get from one meeting to the next but don’t go beyond whatever time you need to accomplish the goal of the meeting. It might be that catching up with a friend is better for a weekend than a weekday.

Hand Out Tasks

Anytime you can hand off tasks you’ll be ahead of the game when it comes to time management. That especially applies for tasks around the house. How long have you been putting off getting rid of all the rubbish that has accumulated in your garage and closets? That is a task that can be handed off to Junk King Los Angeles. You could have all your unwanted clutter cleared by Junk King Los Angeles in less time than it takes to get your car washed. Put them to the challenge today to improve your time management.

“We called the Junk King when my office recently completed a move and relocation to another office. Michael and Alex worked extremely hard to remove the last remaining furniture and office supplies from our old office space, which filled up an entire truck. They were professional, friendly and worked extremely hard. They took instruction well and worked around some others who were taking donated furniture. This is the fourth time in a year that I’ve worked with the Junk King. Though each time it’s been a different location and with a different crew, each experience has been positive. I like that the company practices sustainability, is eco-friendly and donates some of the items they are picking up. I’ve talked about Junk King and recommended your services to many people I know.” – C.H., Los Angeles

How To Get The Best Deal On A New Car

Los Angeles is a car town. You only have to spend time on the 405 or the 10 to know this. Our cars quickly build up the mileage, which means you might be more inclined to buy a new car in less time than the average American. If you’re shopping for a new car this spring, then you’ll want to consider these approaches to getting the best deal on a new car.

Sell Your Old Car Outright

Trade-ins are a big part of the new car buying experience but things have shifted in the last couple of years. Back in the day, trading in your car at a dealer was the only option. But thanks to all the resources online, you could sell your old vehicle on your own. You will probably make more money, too. You can assess the current value but a dealer will always undercut that and there is no negotiating on that. Instead, post a price that is a little high online and let someone undercut that to the price you really wanted. Everybody wins. You can then take that money and put it towards your down payment.

Focus on Price Not Payments

Yes, your car payments are going to be a big part of your budget, but it is the final price of the car that is going to determine those payments. You need to negotiate that price as low as you can go. First, look at all the add ons. They might look cheap on the page but they add up fast. Next, try to set up gap insurance with your own insurance company instead of getting it at the dealer. If you are trading in a car, then wait until the last possible minute to “drop it in.” This will lock in a much better price. A dealer will always try to up the price.

Use Email

You can now contact dealers by email to start the ball rolling. Just know that they’ll keep contacting you until you tell them you bought a car so don’t give them your cell number. You’ll also be able to find out who is willing to work and who isn’t going to cooperate. This will save you trips to the dealer.

Once the deal is done, you want to keep that car pristine, at least for a little while. That means getting your garage sorted to make room for your ride. Junk King Los Angeles can help with that. Their crews of professional movers will make short work of hauling away all your garage clutter. Get your garage ready for a new car by letting Junk King Los Angeles haul out the junk first.
