Shoes

I always buy a new pair of good shoes for working out. Once they aren't good for that anymore, I "graduate" them to my everyday shoes. Once they are too ratty for that, they are demoted to yard shoes. After that, they are normally so torn up that I just pitch them...but I get 3 uses from 1 pair!

Clean

For me whenever I am upset or worry about something. I start to clean. I clean things that required a lot of time and By the time that I finished my emotions have passed. Instead of eating Ice cream which I was doing before.

homemade stock flavoring

I take the pan I baked in and add about a cup of water to get all the flavor (deglazing). Then I put it in a freezer bag to use whenever I need to add flavoring to something I'm making, like gravy or soup. Much better for me than the store bought.

insomnia

I found that taking two tablets of Cal/ Mag everyday at dinner helps me to relax enough to go to sleep. There is something in that combo that works. So now I take it everyday so I can get some sleep, it really works.

Roasted Garlic Versatility

Take a bulb of garlic (or more!) and roast them in the oven for an hour at 350 degrees. Then add some black pepper and puree. Use this everywhere you would use another spread - use it to replace butter, mayo, or peanut butter.

Changing clothes!

I have found that if I change my clothes at the end of my work day, that when I actually get home I grab Bear's leash and I'm out the door! I don't give myself time to think about all the other things that need doing around the house...I put me and Bear first
