Running errands…just saying those two words sounds exhausting. Anyone else with me on this?! It’s something we ALL have to do as part of being an adult and it feels so good once you’re doing it and checking things off your list, but I think pretty much everyone dreads (at least) the before part.
How To Efficiently Run Errands
I love being organized. Honestly any sort of mess produces major anxiety. So I have had to learn how to stay on top of things and run my errands in an efficient way. When I was younger my stress used to get the best of me where errands felt like THE biggest task. I would work it up to be so big that I would then procrastinate and not do it. So now not living at home, and being an adult, I had to figure out ways to work through this issue.
I have learned three helpful tools that have made me a less stressed, more efficient person:
- Write down everything you have to do
- Sort these tasks into an ordered and numbered to do list
- Set time slots for each task or errands and start checking them off one by one
Most of the time there really isn’t even such hard tasks to do it just feels, for lack of a better word, annoying. Which can make things feel overwhelming if you don’t handle it right away. So, checklists can be a big help.

What To Wear
Lastly, your outfit. When you’re running errands you’re usually moving quickly and have a lot to get done. So you want to be comfortable. Also, you want to be practical while still feeling cute. This could be a few type of outfits: sometimes I wear a pair of skinny / straight leg jeans, like these Levi’s, with a t-shirt and sneakers or other times I wear an outfit like the one I’m wearing in the pictures below.
