You know what you want to do. What are your ultimate goals? How are you going to get there? Sometimes they seem monumental. Set mini-goals. Weekly, monthly, or longer, and post them. Write them out in a blog, journal, or on paper and POST IT. Be accountable, check them off and be proud! You did it!!

A Place for Everything

Have a place for everything and make sure everything is in it's place before going to bed each night. I have bins labeled for batteries, cards, envelopes, travel items, etc. I even have a bin with separate drawers for different types of over the counter medicines. So I don't waste time.

One Day Home Vacation

1day a month I shut myself away. I prepare by having everything I need or special things I will enjoy alone, food, drinks etc, shut off the phone and just sleep in, meditate-pray, write, whatever I feel. I feel great when I return to the world--rested and renewed.

Shopping Service

My grocery store allows me to have a shopper. I make my list and e-mail it to my grocery store, pay for it and tell them when I am going to pick it up. It cost around $5.00 but I save so much more.

Use Your Public Library

Your public library has a wealth of free information.
You'll save money by not buying books you might only read once and can purchase the "keepers" like The Spark emoticon emoticon after previewing them. Good for the environment and less clutter too.

Walk in Front of the TV

I used to think only big efforts counted toward weight loss, but I've found you don't always have to go to the gym to help you get to goal. Walking, dancing, and moving instead of sitting while you watch TV can make a real difference.
