As you probably know already Apple makes saving anything that can be printed from your Mac as a PDF very easy with the "PDF" button that is visible in the lower left corner of the Apple Print menu.
You probably used this function many times and then spend time navigating to the location where you want to save the file. Most likely your save PDF files to a limited number of folders. You can make a small adjustment that you can make that will save you a lot of time.
If you really want to save more time creating PDF's you should follow the tip my friend David Sparks shares on his blog.
- Open the print menu by printing something from a Mac application, for example, this email
- Select the "PDF" button. Click "Edit Menu..."
- Add your favorite folders using the "+" icon
- Next time you print to PDF you can send the file straight to its destination
