Have Positive Expectations

Show a positive attitude, give positive reinforcement, show appreciation for others, and watch your environment start living up to your expectations. People do respond. A little patience and kindness is contagious. A positive attitude gives off: energy, enthusiasm, good will, and health. Not only will you feel like doing more, others around you will want to help you.

Plan ahead and Save

Buy staple ingredients for your favorite meals in quantity when they are on sale. Then all you have to do is add the fresh stuff to make a great meal. I always have wheat, (I have a wheat grinder to make the freshest flour) white flour, yeast, salt on hand to make my own bread. That saves me a lot of money every week.

The Worry Jar

When I have a worry, I write it down and fold up the piece of paper. Then I drop it in my worry jar. Two to three weeks later I read my worries and many of them I laugh at. I can say emoticon to those worries. It makes me feel so much better.

Crispier Lettuce

Keep lettuce crispier by removing the heart, then storing in a zip-lock bag with a wet paper towel. This works with any type of lettuce.

Expanding Frosting

When you buy a container of cake frosting from the store, whip it with your mixer for a few minutes. You can double it in size. You get to frost more cake/cupcakes with the same amount. You also eat less sugar and calories per serving.

Make your own cleaning supplies

I never buy cleaning supplies anymore. I use baking soda to scrub tubs, sinks, and toilets and I use vinegar for a multi-purpose cleaner. We also quit buying paper towels years ago and make due with a supply of cleaning rags made from worn-out shirts.

Give some encouragement

Give some encouragement. Have you read a blog or post by a person who is struggling? Give that person some encouragement. Tell them they can achieve their dreams. Not only will they feel supported and encouraged, but so will you. It's amazing how much better you can feel when you help someone else.
