You’re looking for ways to streamline your day and squeeze out a few extra minutes. We all are, right?!
We found 6 free apps that will help you really maximize your time, meaning more time for that afternoon cup of coffee. Or wine. We don’t judge!
1. Use the Sam’s Club Scan & Go app, and you’ll never have to wait in the checkout line at Sam’s Club again.
How the Sam’s Club app saves you time: You scan your groceries in-store and pay through the app. All you have to do is let a cashier scan your phone before you leave the store.
You don’t have to go through the hassle of the traditional checkout!
For real. Just scan your items as you put them into your cart, and the app keeps a running total. No more unloading all your items onto the checkout belt and then loading them back into your cart.
Don’t feel like going to the store? The Sam’s Club app lets you place an order and have it delivered to your door, or pre-order and have it ready for pickup, skipping your trip to the store altogether.
Plus, the app keeps track of your loyalty card, photo orders and prescriptions.
2. Eating out? Never wait in line for a table again with OpenTable.
How OpenTable saves you time: Book a table at a restaurant so when you arrive, you get seated. No waiting!
When you use OpenTable, you can make a reservation in about two seconds, from your phone. Browse hundreds of restaurants to see which ones have tables ready right when you need it.

3. With Sit or Squat, you’ll never get stuck using a dirty public restroom again.
How Sit or Squat saves you time: You get access to a map of public restrooms so you can make last-minute pit stops.
In fact, each restroom has a “sit” (clean) or “squat” (dirty) rating given by past users. So, not only will you be able to find a nearby public restroom, but you can be picky and quickly learn which you should skip.
