I pay as many bills online as I can. I also make a list of where I need to go when running errands and what route to take to be as efficient as I can and not have to think about where my next stop is while driving. I live in a small town and make many of the same trips over and over so not much to think about. Also do the important stops first and pleasure stops last if I still have the energy.
I also keep an index card with what bills I have each month on top of my calender on my computer table so nothing gets over looked. I'm kinda paranoid these days that I am going to forget to pay a bill.
I have two dogs which is about like having children and I have a little office chair that I roll around the floor on to pick up all their toys when I'm ready to vacuum, this saves a lot of bending over. I also use a little basket to pick things up that go to other rooms to save trips. Every step I take during the day is precious energy spent so I try to use it wisely.
I'm blessed and have a wonderful hubby that does the heavy scrubbing for me in the bathroom and kitchen but that is mostly due to the arthritis in hands but it also saves me a lot of energy. Never thought about how much energy those things use til I got fibro and had no energy. I do some vacuuming of carpets but if the whole house needs to be vacuumed he does it. I do vacuum the hard surface floors in the house but that doesn't take as much energy.
I have a steam mop and a swiffer mop which saves rinsing out a mop constantly, that saves time and energy.
That's about all I can think of at the moment.
luv and hugs
