Homework Help

Use a timer to help keep your child on task while doing homework. If he's not done when the timer goes off, it's dinner, bath, and bedtime. NO TV OR VIDEO GAMES!!!
Let him face the consequences in school the next morning.

Summer Clearance

Now is the time to shop til you drop! Stores are clearing their summer inventory to make way for their fall collections. You can get up to 75% off original prices. It works well in Florida since our summer extends well into October.

Eating Out

When I eat out, I make sure to take at least half of my meal home. Restaurants always serve way too much. Somebody at home will eat it for lunch the next day.

Early morning Workout

Working out early in the morning, gets it out of the way, and you won't have an excuse later on to not do it.

Shoo Birds

Tie old CDs on the branches of your favorite fruit trees to keep birds from eating the fruits on the trees. The shiny reflection scares them away.

Bag of Baby Carrots

When I pack my lunch for work, I make sure I include a zipper bag of baby carrots. They're sweet and crunchy and so good for you. You can dip them in hummus or Greek yogurt or anything other type of healthy dip. You can also substitute celery sticks or green pepper.. emoticon
