Yes, many people seem to waste a lot of time just staring at their mobile devices these days. And yes, it’s easy to spend a lot of money purchasing those mobile devices in the first place. That said, it’s a good thing that you can use some of the apps on those mobile devices to save you time and money as well!
Four great ways to use apps to achieve this include – find out when all of your favorite stores are open so you don’t waste time in empty parking lots, comparison shop all your purchases on the go, use time trackers to find out where your time is slipping away, and combine your outings using maps and directions in order to save money on gas.
Find Out When Stores Are Open
Gone are the days when you have to actually get to a store to find out if they’re open or not. And even, better, with apps and websites that map out store hours, you can have all of that information at your fingertips within milliseconds. Once you’ve found out how to use these apps efficiently, it will become like second nature to know exactly when grocery stores, book stores, or restaurants are open or closed. Even all of the store hours in New York or busy places like Los Angeles are completely available on the go.
Comparison Shop On the Go
Once you start using price comparison apps, your shopping experiences will never be the same again. You no longer have to wonder if something is more expensive at Target or Walmart. You don’t have to question in your mind if it’s better to buy a guitar at a music store or at a retail center. Your pocketbook and bank account will thank you daily!
Using Time Trackers
By installing time trackers and using them regularly, you can find out things like how much TV you watch, or how long it takes to cook dinner. You can find ways that you waste time browsing on the Internet, or if you’re spending too little time doing activities that actually make you money. The simple act of awareness can drastically change your relationship with your daily activities.
Combine Trips Using Maps and Directions
How much of a waste of time and money is it when you’re driving around trying to find places? So why not use the available maps and directions mobile apps that are already installed on your mobile device to their best advantage? Depending on your job – if you work in the delivery business, for example – you can be tremendously more efficient at doing your daily tasks, to the point where you don’t know how you survived without these new technologies.
