Running everything for hot water at once..

Does this save on oil? It must sound like a silly question, but I was just thinking about how I am already chilly in the mornings and it is only September. Don't know how we will manage this winter with the ridiculous fuel bills.
We have oil heat and hot water, so even during the summer our furnace runs when we need the HW. So I was just wondering, if we were to use the dishwasher, clothing washer, and shower around the same times, would it make a difference?

Might run out of hot water temporarly and exit the shower with a head full of shampoo bubbles saying something like ,, BRRRRR Its Too Cold.

We have a Super Stor Ultra- never ran out of hot water.
Just thought it would use less oil if we were to heat it all at once.

Before I shower in the winter,I turn both thermostats in my home low to prevent them from heating the house while I'm still in the shower. If I remember, I move them back up when I'm out of the bathroom.
