Small plate, utensils and chew

I use a beautiful small plate for my meals and small utensils..example my favorite utensil is a demitasse sterling silver spoon. then I chew every bite 20 plus times. The whole process is much slower and I know when I get full as opposed to shoveling it in.

Gourmet Sandwiches

Make any sandwich gourmet with no need for fattening spreads by adding grilled vegetables. Once a week I grill a LARGE batch of peppers, eggplant, zucchini, onion etc that I have marinated in fate free or very low fat italian or parmesean or ginger soy salad dressing. Great way to use up old vegs.

To remove rust stains from clothes, pour a small amount of lemon juice to cover the stain. Then cover that with salt. Hold it over the steam of a boiling kettle or pot of water and watch the stain go before your eyes.

Don't take that "crap"!

Birds have taken up nesting in the light fixtures by the front door. That meant a pile of bird droppings on each side of my Welcome mat! That stuff was impossible to remove until I went online and found Poop-Off. I bought it at Petcos - Wow it all came up in seconds!

Smart saving

If you're saving up for something special, don't just put your money in a piggy bank or envelope. Open up a special savings account - shop around for a good interest rate. It won't be so easy to help yourself to the money on a whim, and the interest will get you your buy even more quickly.

Me time

This time I am going to make it because everyday I will spend one entire hour of me time in a row. Doesn't matter with what. Either exercising, reading a book, pampering myself, I have scheduled it in my calendar so it will happen because everything in my calender I do!! Goodluck to you all!!
