Quarters do count up

I have a Raisin Bank which I got a long time ago. My husband and I save quarters and then wrap them up in the
















I
have a Raisin Bank which I have had a long time. My husband and I put out quarters in the bank, and when we have $10 worth we wrap them. When we have collected 3 or 4 of these we take them to the bank and get paper money. We save for vacations by doing this!

Drinking water

I find that if I drink water from 20 oz plastic bottles I am able to drink more. If you can drink 3 of these bottles you have most of your 64 ozs down the hatch!

When I make sugar-free gelatin, I add either orange juice or sparkling diet soda in -place of ice water. It gives a different flavor.

Raisin Bank

I have a raisin bank into which I put only quarters. When I get $10 worth I roll them and when they collect I take them to the bank to exchange for bills. We use them to pay a sitter for our cat when we go on vacation.

Relaxation

When I want to relax and use my brain at the same time I enjoy doing crossword puzzles. I enjoy the stimulation and it helps me concentrate on this one thing that I am doing, hence I do not crave food.

Curbing hunger

As I have read before, drinking lots of water helps in weight loss. Sometimes when I think I am hungry, I will grab a bottle of water to drink. One trick I use is to add a flavored fiber powder. and that seems to help. You can have your cake and eat it too.
