Buy frozen fruits and veggies

Sometimes buying fresh produce can be too expensive, try looking in the frozen section for budget friendly quality fruits and veggies. A big bag of frozen berries usually costs the same or less then a small container of fresh.

Keep moving!

I do lunges and squats and walk in place while sorting, folding and doing laundry, I walk in place while doing the dishes. When I walk the dogs, we play soccer as well...Border Collies can never get enough activity! I also take the stairs twice when doing chores! It all adds up!! emoticon

Castile Soap

I use Castile Soap (Dr. Bronner's) for cleaning up around the house. It works great, costs a lot less than all the other cleaners I used to use, and is chemical free.

Talk it up

Every time you grab the phone, stand up and pace around. Heavy people sit on average two and a half hours more per day than thin people, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Store Natural Peanut Butter Upside Down--Then Stir & Refrigerate

Natural peanut butter doesn't contain added oils, but it does require regular stirring, especially when you first buy it. That can be messy and difficult. So each time I buy a new jar, I store it in my pantry upside down until I'm ready to use it. That mixes the oil better for easier stirring!
