Spoon Shortage is so difficult! Trying to save spoons can be a job in itself! So this page is aimed at us sharing some ‘Tips & Tricks’ on how we can conserve our spoons on a daily basis, or during special times.
I’d really love for you to all share your own ideas by adding your comments. Together we can share some great ideas I’m sure 😉
My Top Tips…
1) Rest between, before and after!!! Resting up before things get too bad can make all the difference. From my experience it’s vital to start with some energy, and end before you’re totally spent, so resting in between too can mean bigger jobs can be spread out and achieved 😉
2) Use as little energy as you can! So sit if you can instead of standing, especially in ‘high’ spoon spending activities such as showering, cooking etc. there are loads and loads of individual ways of achieving this one, I’d love to hear yours!
3) Aids are a girls best friend! If like me you have problems physically too they’re essential! Long-handled body scrubs, a hair washing tool, electric tin openers, kettle tipper, rocker knives, large handled cutlery and kitchen tools, sock aids, bottle twisters, etc etc, the list is endless… They make a huge difference, so well worth the investment 😉
4) Spread the fun! Obvious really, but less easy to control at busy periods such as the holidays. However it’s so vital! If it means buying presents in November, decorating the house over a week, writing cards three or four at a time and ordering food online, it’s possible with planning ;). But doing a little each day makes a much better spoon saving technique than trying to do it all at once and then ending up much much worse! Try it, it really does work!
I have loads and loads of more ideas, so I’ll keep adding to the list… Please, please do add your own ideas, we’d all really love to hear your ideas 😉
