A few tips to help you save time
Are you the type of person who always arrives late to things, not by choice, but by the fact that time flew by and you only realised at the last second that you have to pack everything you need, get ready, run out the door and catch a train/bus?

Well, what can you do about it?

1. Set your clocks five minutes fast. You'd be surprised at how much help five minutes can be. It can be that extra second you need to not miss your train. This doesn't work for everyone because there are people out there who go "oh my clocks' five minutes fast, I have time".

2. Have a pre-made bag ready. After you come home don't take out all your bits and pieces from your bag, leave things in there, like your wallet or iPod or phone so that when you do need to leave in a rush, all you need to grab is your bag already ready set to go.

3. Always have a my multi or travel ten handy in your bag or wallet. No need to run and buy a ticket for the train and watch your train speed away as you do. Nope, just pull out your trusty ticket and go.

4. Get TripView or something so that you actually know what time your train/bus is. No point in walking out early saying "oh yes, I'm early I'll just catch the bus" only to find out your bus runs at funny times and you missed the last one by 5 minutes and the next one comes in half an hour.

Hopefully with these tips you'll be able to stop yourself from being late for everything!
