(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

This is something we really need help with. Well, actually, we’ve gotten pretty good about the weekday morning shower — it’s the Saturday one that really kills us. So, we’ll start the list of tips with a few we’ve employed or have heard suggested. Please add your own. We can use all the help we can get!

  • Use a shower timer
  • Try a 2-in-1 shampoo-conditioner combination
  • Create a playlist on your iPod that coincides with your desired shower length (hook it up to speakers in the bathroom)
  • Take a luke warm or cold shower (you’ll want to get out)
  • Have a very small shower (you may not have control over this — but it makes showering less enjoyable)
  • Try a navy shower
