Grammar

If you are talking to another person, but you don't want to waste your time or their time, is it grammatically correct to say you "don't want to waste either of our time"???
 
It's so tempting to add an S on the end, for some reason:  you "don't want to waste either of our times."
 
I guess you should maybe just say "I don't want to waste your time or mine."
For clarity.
But it just seems like there should be a way...
