freezer

use a plastic dish pan in the freezer . It helps keep food easier to get to and easier to empty and clean the freezer. Its easier to take 4 containers out instead of 100 . Its also easier to rotate and keep meat fresher longer by placing meat in baggies and have a date on each bag yu put in the dish pan. Showing dates. Then Layer meat with new meat on the botton, & inside each baggie have each meat labeled as well as dated.

Washing walls the easy way, (great for horizontally challenged)

I was mopping our wooden floors with the sponge head that is best for wood, and noticed a bunch of smudges on a wall. In a hurry, I simply tried the mop, with the Lemon Pine Sol, and it came off the first time. I ended up mopping all of the walls. The dust I did not see, came off really well, and the rooms sparkle. And the house smells great. I had to do extra scrubbing where there were food spots, but that was all there was to it. If you have carpet, be careful to use less water on mop.

Fresh Frozen Fruit

I love my fresh fruit, but I found I was wasting my money when the fruit would go bad before I could finish it. Now to save money if it gets close to browning or going bad I now fresh freeze it. Slice it into small peices and reuse the fresh frozen for smoothies or fruit salad as needed!!!

Sweet Potato Wedges

Sweet potato wedges can be crispy and so great for munching ~ use as a side for grilled burgers. A healthy alternative to greasy and fatty french fries.

Relationships

Some of the biggest challenges in relationships come from the fact that most people enter a relationship in order to get something: They're trying to find someone who's going to make them feel good. In reality, the only way a relationship will last is if you see your relationship as a place that you go to give, and not a place you go to take.

Just 15 Minutes

Before I head off to bed for the night, I take a few minutes (about 15) to pick up around the house. There will be less for me to do in the morning, and at times, nothing. I can start my day with a clean house.

$1

I have a weekly budget (cash) for food, gas, coffee, movie - what ever. And I don't spend $1 bills. I keep the dollar bills in a can until I have $100. Then $50 goes into my IRA and the other $50 is for something special - a pedicure, night out with friends, a movie, new shoes. It's fun to have treats and not feel guilty. And I get to see my IRA grow at the same time.

Loose Change

Pennies, nickels, and dimes add up rather quickly. Every evening I put all of my change in an old 1-gallon water jug. As a plus, since I don't have a lot change in my wallet I don't have coins to feed the vending machine emoticon

Commit to Completing Just 3 Things a Day

I often ignore things on my to-do list for weeks. So I try to accomplish just 3 things every day. It can be whatever 3 things from my to-do list I want; it's an easier target than doing everything; if I get them done early it motivates me to do more; It sets me up to over-accomplish and feel good rather than disappoint myself.
