OrGreenic Cookware

It's awesome stuff. We cook without oil. We still get our fats in food but not all the added oil. We fry eggs and even pancakes without adding any oil at all. We 'season' it maybe once a month. You don't wash it with soap and it cleans up so slick in just a minute or 2. Food tastes better too!

Drinking Water

To save, I ordered several of the Nalgene water bottles from the Co. We use Brita pitchers any way and have 3 of them filling/full at all times. I keep 1 of the 32 oz ones by me as my backup and when at home have my large glass to fill. I keep 2 - 3 of the bottles with me when gone from home.

At work, managing delays

I have a file for every day of the week from monday to friday. And in each file, I place the papers, client files and other items that needs to be done for each day. I know how much work I can do in a day, and I can give realistic delays to my clients.
