Shopping List

I created a shopping list spreadsheet for things I buy on a regular basis. With 2 columns, a check area for getting it and an area to track prices. I take that with me when I shop to help me know how much I'm spending and attach my receipt to it so when I go shopping again, I know what I spent.

Get the Water IN !

Had the hardest time drinking the 8-8oz glasses of water until I remembered as a nurse we would encourage patients to drink with a straw. Holy Cow it works like a charm. Before you know it the glass is empty and you just fill it up again. Using a 16 oz. glass works even better !
