Prep my snacks in portion sizes for the week. Freeze the first two as 'back up' snacks for when you are busy, craving, or starved.
I keep measuring tools, cups and spoons in many containers. Many foods are used in specific amounts often So I have 1/4 cup measure in my oat bran. 2 tablespoon in m flax seed. I tablespoon in my grape nuts. I bought inexpensive cups and spoons and instead of cluttering the drawers I open the lid use the tool and throw it back in for the next time you want to use that dry food again. no need to wash till it gets wet. Make certain the utensil is dry before you drop it back in to the glass jar.
I am creating a weight loss binder to keep my success in one convenient place. Every week I print off the weekly reports that are important to me and add them to the correct tab in my binder. I'm a visual person and it's very easy for me to compare one week to the next to see my successes and struggles. I also have a place for my monthly pictures of myself to compare before and afters.
My very favorite way to stay on top of clutter or get myself to work on a task I'd rather not is to use a timer. I set it for 15 min. & see how much I can get done during that time. After it goes off, I can either do it again or often do something else for 15 min that is more fun & then repeat again. It works!
