Making retirement easier

By learning to live on less while you're working (and saving the rest), you will be well-prepared for retirement, when you will probably have less coming in. You will already know how to live on less. Contentment comes from being happy with what you have - and you sleep better too.

Taste Testing?

Sometimes I find myself taste-testing a bit too much while I'm cooking ~ Chewing sugarless gum helps keep this in check.

face moisturizer

Instead of buying those expensive creams that often have a lot of things listed that you cannot pronounce, I take a tablespoon of olive oil, poke a hole in gel Vitamins A, C, D and E mix. I store it in a small container and apply with wet hands. A little goes a long way

Just 14 Steps

The hard part is getting started! Since our exercise equipment is in the basement, my husband and I made a deal to walk the 14 steps down the stairs daily. If we still didn't feel up to it, we didn't have to exercise. Neither one of us has ever gone down and not exercised some!

Workout DVDS

Keeps you moving on the weekends when its too "easy" to stay home from the gym.

Also a perfect tool for rainy days , one last cardio session before the days end or a good start in the morning before getting ready for your day!

Books

I read a lot of books and used to get them at a discount store. Even at lower prices, they added up. Not only that but I had to find room to store them. Now I get all my books from the library.

I LOVE to eat a prepared salad with at least 3 or more veggies! Restaurants serve them, BUT WATCH OUT for the dressings!The dressings offered are usually HIGH IN FAT! It makes NO SENSE to eat a healthy salad with an UNHEALTHY DRESSING! [I DON"T LIKE Italian dressing or vinegar-types or lemon].

It's okay to throw away!

I was brought up to always clean my plate. Throwing food away was completely unacceptable. I have even found myself eating the leftover food off my kids' plates to not waste. NO MORE! I now live by the motto that it's okay to throw things away if I am full or if I don't like something.
