I was talking to Jeni, our Executive Editor, last weekend about how you cannot get time back. Once you've spent it, it's gone. As I write this, I'm spending time that I cannot have refunded.
Once you hit your twenties, it seems like you have so much more to do—grocery shopping, errands, work, school, friends—that there's not enough time in the day. With the holidays coming around, you'll have to squeeze in a few more things.
Even staying healthy can take up some of your valuable time. You know those plans you had to finally introduce your family to healthy Thanksgiving? We saved you time with a few recipes. Don't have time to figure out what yoga classes you should be taking? We've got you covered.
Of course, the holidays mean it's time for shopping. If you haven't started saving yet, we offered a few tips that will help you in the future.When it comes to buying gifts, you can't go wrong with Rosie Johnson's Leila Lou perfume (read the profile we did on her) or one of the new book releases from our monthly What's Worth Reading series. As far as the books go, I'm looking forward to reading Stephen King's new novel and Lady Gaga's photo book. If your parents' style is tragically stuck in 1985, make sure any clothing you buy has a trendy hue this season with our fall color report.
When you're tragically behind on shows like Grey's Anatomy, Glee, New Girl, Modern Family and Pan Am, check out our recaps to get caught up without setting aside a day to watch the episodes you missed. If you find yourself free for a few hours, there are a few films we suggest, along with a few we think you should skip, this month in our What's Worth Watching: Film series.
I hope we've helped you regain a few precious moments you may have lost.
When you have free time—as rare or often as it may be—how do you spend it?
