Technological time savers: Things we wouldn’t be without

A lot of people seem to take their belongings for granted, especially those that make our lives a lot easier. I’m in my thirties and I have seen huge technological change in my life, and it’s amazing to think that a lot of the things that we use, save us a lot of time

Let’s take a look at some of the items a lot of us own, and how they save us time:

Washing machines

Most of us have grown up in a home that had a washing machine. I know that most of us take these machines for granted, and only miss them when they stop working. Almost one year ago, my washing machine stopped working, and I had to save up an buy a new one. Washing machines save us a lot of time, hours in fact, and they ensure our clothes are clean and even crease-free, depending on which brand you buy. Washing machines are a part of most western homes, but a lot of us fail to appreciate them for how much time they save us.

Curling irons

A lot of women own curling irons, as they help to give hair a bit of bounce. Other women and even some men look for the best hair straighteners they can find, so their hair contains no curls whatsoever. These products save us a lot of time and energy trying to get our hair just right, yet we occasionally take them for granted.


Computers can ultimately save us a lot of time, and money too. We can make the most of shopping online, rather going out to the supermarket or other stores, and we can also make use of online discounts too. Computers do so much for us, and we’d probably be quite lost without them, I know I would. We can run businesses from home and we can get in touch with people on the other side of the world, all by sitting in front of a screen and tapping away at a keyboard.

Mobile phones

You may not realise it, but mobile phones have only been a part of our lives for about 15 years. Before they became really popular, we were not able to contact people, no matter where we are in the world. Mobile phones help us to surf the web, talk to people, text people, and even do a spot of shopping too.


Although you may not necessarily consider cars to be a form of technology, they certainly are. These days a lot of cars can tell you how to get somewhere, they can tell you what tune is being played on the radio, and they can even brake for you. There’s no doubt that cars can save us a lot of time, as they and other forms of transportation can help us to travel hundreds of miles every single day if needs be.

As you can see there are quite a few technological time savers in our lives, and a lot of them are things we wouldn’t be without. We only realise how important they are to us, and what they do for us when something goes wrong, and that’s a real shame.
