Walking with dogs

I never walk alone. I have always had some type of pet dog. A dog will always go with you for a walk, in fact they can't wait and will make you feel guilty if you don't take them out.

Chewy Calcium Pills

I love milk, but my allergies don't, so I can drink a little but not a lot, and especially not at night. I found a generic brand of calcium that tastes like a piece of chocolate candy. At 15 calories I feel like I have splurged, but I am also getting 50% of my calcium!

Sort and Read Email

Kill 2 birds with 1 stone. I bring a bag of clothes, or anything
else I need to sort through and read my emails at the same time. You can keep getting up and working while emails are
loading and in no time both are done.

Clearance racks

Whenever i go into a department store i always look into the clearance racks first. It is surprising how much money I have saved doing this. Today i found a very nice jogging set for my granddaughter for a $1, retail price was $12. I have also pick up a $80 dress for myself for only $15.

Snack vs Mini-Meal

It may be all in the mind, but using the term mini-meal instead of snack helps me to select healthier options when planning and eating between meals.

I save one dollar bills that I get in change.

Whenever I receive one dollar bills, I tuck them away and save them. So far, I have bought a patio set and a big screen tv all for cash, just by saving ones!
