You know the stuff you have stored away in your closets, garage or around the house in general that you NEVER use? Donate it! There is probably someone who can use it more than you and what's the sense in having it sit around collecting dust for you to clean-up? I have found that by minimizing the amount of "stuff" I have the lighter I feel and the less time I spend cleaning!

Forget your expensive cable company, try Netflix. For less than $10 a month you can get unlimited instant streaming on your computer or Netflix ready device (i.e. Blue-Ray Player, Wii, XBox and more). Netflix has many titles to choose from. There are movies, sitcoms and many premium channel series to choose from. Plus, if you don't have cable that will probably mean less time in front of the TV and more time to get up and be active!
Your library card! It's free! Use it to check out books, dvds (including workouts), Cds (for some free workout tunes) and more! Most libraries even have free wireless internet and computer access. If your short on time check to see if your local library has an online catalog where you can reserve books, that way they are pulled for you and you can dash in and out in a jffy!

My favorite workout of all time is ZUMBA! I have so much fun doing it I forget that I am working out. I find myself wanting to do more after my workout is over. I Zumba in the privacy of my own home with Zumba Fitness for the Wii. It is also available on several other game platforms. Trust me, it's a ton of fun!
When I am in need of clothes or a household item (i.e. kitchen gadgets, plates, cups, storage containers, etc.) I shop the second hand store first. I can usually find what I need for 50% or more off from what I would pay brand new. I once got 5 pairs of jeans for $30, I would have paid $20-$40 each in store.
