Add a bit of protein to your snacks!

A piece of fruit or cracker might be a good snack -- but adding a bit of protein to it will make it much more filling! Grab a slice of cheese, lean turkey or half a glass of milk to keep the munchies away for longer.

Freeze homemade bread machine bread in portions-save $, no waste.

Drag that bread machine back out and make your own bread again. I use organic whole grain flours and save a fortune over store bought--only thing, the bread would go bad too fast for me to eat it. Now I cut and freeze it in one and two slice packs. Problem solved!

Be bold!

When ordering in a restaurant I am learning to ask for just what I need even when it is not on the menu. Salad dressing on the side; Marinara instead of Alfredo Sauce; just a little oil in the sauté. It worked at Olive Garden and I felt great!

Set a timer for 15 minutes

Set a timer for 15 minutes and start quickly decluttering your living space. You can do this several times during the day and you'll see what a difference it'll make. You can get a lot done during those short bouts of organizing. That way, you can keep your place tidy without feeling ovelwhelmed.
