You have better things to do than linger in front of your closet deciding which shirt to wear, or race around your house looking for your sunglasses.

Read on for practical and creative strategies you can use to get out the door faster — starting tonight
The night before
Place your alarm clock across the room
This simple strategy comes from Gretchen Rubin, bestselling author of books including, most recently, “Better Than Before.” That way, you’ll have to get up and turn it off, decreasing the temptation to go back to sleep.
Leave your keys, wallet, sunglasses, and cell phone in the same place
Here’s another tip from Rubin. You don’t want to waste time scrambling to find all your essentials.
Check the next day’s forecast
It’ll help when you plan your outfit (see below). Plus you’ll know about any potential delays — if there’s going to be a snowstorm the next morning, you should get out the door sooner than usual.
Decide on your outfit while you brush your teeth before bed
That way, Rubin said, “you don’t have to take the time for inner debate in the morning.”
If you’re traveling, decide exactly how you’ll spend your time in the morning
Chris Bailey, author of “The Productivity Project,” pinpoints this tip as his favorite strategy for saving time in the morning.
