While waiting for a doctor's appointment, the bus, a ride or anything, I have my #2 project bag. I attach it to my purse, so I can't leave one or another bag someplace. I get a little project done or finish one, and then perhaps I can begin another. Sometimes you can break up a large or a medium project, so it can become a small take along. You can decide for yourself, what size you can manage in a take along.
For 'at home' # 1's, I keep a project nearby, for when I put my feet up. I work 15 - 25 minutes each day on any large projects, and it gets done eventually. If I have to get it done in a hurry, I actually schedule the time. Depending on my daily schedule, crocheting has become an appointment with myself for de-stressing.
An additional tip: for my 'on the go bags' I keep a toothbrush container in which I keep my most used 2 hooks and small folding scissors. Since it's bright pink, it's easy to grab and put in a bag before I'm off for wherever I go.

What better way than to get the kids involved in a craft as well? Doing paper projects, coloring or even winding yarn balls, they are able to say they are making something, too. It always makes them so excited. It lets me be sneaky and get my own work completed.
