Everyone's always in a rush these days. There just don't seem to be enough hours in the day for us to accomplish all of the tasks expected of us.
Fortunately, however, there are some resources you can use to help you in this regard. There are lots of great timesaving devices on the market that can assist you in making the most out of the time you have available.
Voice Recognition Software: Dragon Naturally Speaking
Almost everyone is forced to do some amount of typing these days. With computers so common in the workplace with respect to creating reports, spreadsheets, etc. (not to mention for communication purposes, like email), typing is on just about everybody's agenda. Unfortunately, if you don't have sufficient keyboarding skills, typing can take up a good portion of your time.
Thankfully, there is now powerful voice-recognition software in the marketplace. With products like Dragon Naturally Speaking, you can have your words typed as you speak. (Not bad, huh?) In short, you won't find many more timesavers as valuable as this, as evidenced by the video below.

Demy Touchscreen Recipe Reader
Now you can keep all of your recipes in one place with the Touchscreen Recipe Reader.
Moreover, each of them is available to you in seconds, as this device holds up to 2500 recipes. (It even comes preloaded with 250 recipes of its own.)
As the name implies, this device has a large, 7" touchscreen with adjustable font, so you make the recipes as large as needed to easily follow the instructions.
In addition, it comes with 3 timers, a conversion calculater (e.g., converting teaspoons to milliliters), and an ingredient substitution dictionary - just in case you find yourself missing a crucial item.

E-Readers: Kindle, Nook, And More
Another great timesaver is an ereader.
These nifty gadgets can save you gobs of time by eliminating the need to travel to the bookstore.
In addition, there are cost savings as well because ebooks are generally cheaper than their hard-copy brtehren.
Finally, there's the convenience factor. Rather than filling your house up with dusty tomes, most ereaders can hold thousands of books. (For example, the Kindle Fire can hold an estimated 6,000 books.)
Smartshopper Grocery List Organizer
No more hunting for a pen and pad to write down your grocery list (or trying to keep up with it).
With the Smartshopper Grocery List Organizer, you can merely state the name of the item you wish to add to the list, and the voice reconition software adds it to your list.
It even separates your shopping items by category.
With this great time-saving device, you won't ever forget anything from your grocery list again. (FYI: It also prints out your errands, like stopping by the bank!)
