Speeding up routine tasks (or preventing them altogehter)
In this thread, I hope people will share some tips & tricks on how to do routine tasks faster, or find ways to avoid them altogether. Maybe a bit like lifehacker.com, but concentrating on tasks really necessary for survival. No "how to make a nice seasonal window decoration faster" - that's for people who have no other problems. For us procrastinators, that's the sort of thing we should never, ever even think about before, for example, having completed our tax declaration.
I'm not sure if I put this thread in the right forum section ("Special Projects and Master Lists") but didn't find anything more appropriate.
If this thread teaches me even just one trick that will save me, or someone else here, a few minutes per week, I'll be happy.
