Sticky Tack

Sticky Tack (also called Museum Putty) is great for holding things in place. I've just used it to fix some desk organizers in place (they were sliding all over whenever the drawer was opened & closed; now they stay put)! emoticon

Paprika App

After much research, I'm loving the recipe management app "Paprika". It lets me capture recipes from sparkrecipes as well as many other recipe sites & my own personal recipes! With all my recipes in one place, I can build the week's meal plan & hit a button for a grocery list. The big plus for ME is that I can have everything offline, since I'm not always on wifi to use sparkrecipes. It costs $20 for MAC, $5 for iPad, $5 for iPhone or iPod and uses a cloud to sync everything together. Awesome!

Bengal Spice Tea

Just discovered this at a friend's house recently. It's made by Celestial Seasonings and it's delicious! Spicy, sweet ... like having a warm, rich dessert without calories!

Buttons!

From now on, I'm going to sew the extra buttons that come with clothing onto an inconspicuous place on the clothing! That way, if a button gets lost, I'll immediately know where to look for a replacement!

Murphy's Oil as stain remover

I learned this one from my sister (who was a kindergarten teacher). If a clothing stain has an oiliness to it (examples: tomatoes, oil based salad dressing), gently rub some Murphy's oil over the stain, then launder as usual. Do NOT put this article in the dryer...let it air dry. That way, if the stain needs another round of Murphy's oil (it rarely does by the way!), the dryers' heat won't have heat-set the stain.
This product has saved many an article of clothing at my house over the years!

Himalaya Gourmet "Butter Masala"

Produces a tasty dish and VERY low in sodium! (I didn't add salt to the recipe as it directs, either).

Use Flax as Egg Substitute

When baking, substitute 1 tablespoon ground flax seed mixed with 3 tablespoons warm water for each (or some) of the eggs.

Staying in Balance

Whenever I start to feel overwhelmed, I go outside. Simply planting my feet on Mother Earth brings me balance, peace and centering. My soul rests for a few moments and then I'm ready to take on the world again!

EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique)

I try to remember to use EFT daily (see www.eftuniverse.com for free manual, lots of examples, and encouragement). It works for me, and it has worked for many others!

Tired of Plain Water?

I add approximately 1 tablespoon of organic, unsweetened cranberry juice to 8 oz of water. Refreshing and pleasant change from plain water (which I enjoy too!) If this is too tangy, you can sweeten with 1 drop of liquid stevia. Enjoy!
