18 things you can do while sitting at sports practice

I’m excited to partner with Jet.com today and I received compensation to thank me for my participation.

I’m sitting here at my daughters soccer practice and thinking of all the things I need to be doing at home.  I have practices for my 3 kids at least 4 days a week along with weekend games.  It feels like I’m always out of the house in the evenings.  I enjoy watching them play and getting to know all the other team members, but after a few weeks I feel I can watch 30 minutes of practice and still have time to get some things done that I want and/or need to do.  Here are 18 things you can do while sitting at sports practice.
18 things you can do while sitting at sports practice

  1. Make your menu
  2. Make a grocery list
  3. Clean out your car- I do this at least once a week.
  4. Read- I have been doing a ton of reading lately, 10 books this year!
  5. Go for a walk-  There are is a group of moms that walk at my sons baseball practice.  It’s a great way to get in those 10,000 steps!
  6. Clean out your email- This is something I do NOT like to do, but it has to be done.
  7. Write a letter to someone you haven’t seen in awhile
  8. Paint your nails
  9. Balance the checkbook
  10. Pay bills
  11. Help your other kids with homework
  12. Delete old pictures on your phone- I get so many pictures from my kids playing with it and they take up so much space.
  13. Play with your dog
  14. PINTEREST!- I wouldn’t call this productive, but you can at least find some good dinner recipes while making your menu.  (See #1) 🙂
  15. Knit or crochet or learn how- This is a great time to get your Christmas crafts started!
  16. Actually call someone-  I call my mom a lot during these times just to catch up and I don’t get interrupted.
  17. Clean out your purse/wallet
  18. SHOP!- Yes, you can save even more time by buying online.

I recently discovered Jet.com and I saved so much money on my first order!  I just downloaded the app (or you can shop from home too).  First, it gave me this coupon code to get 15% off my first order.IMG_6252

 

Then it had a coupon on almost EVERYTHING I bought for extra off.  Also, Slickdeals is a great place to find additional coupons on some great items.  They have a mobile app too!

You can see on this screenshot the extra savings, plus the 15% off the first order AND free shipping.  WooHoo!!  It also gave me the option, on every item (food not included), for additional price reduction if I chose to give up free returns.  I did this on everything I bought because I really didn’t think I was going to be returning toilet paper and dish detergent.

Then, when I went to pay I got an additional 1.5% because I used my debit card.

I got my package in 2 days and I got a ton of snacks, toiletries, and cleaning supplies and I did all this while I was sitting in the car!  It saved me so much time.

Now after watching what’s going on at practice for a little bit and saying hi to all the other parents I can get a lot of stuff accomplished so I can spend more time with my family.
