Kill weeds and crabgrass growing in sidewalks and driveways by pouring vinegar onto them. A half-and-half solution of vinegar and water can even kill garden slugs if itís sprayed directly onto them.

be like the Europeans

don't waste food (money) by shopping once a week and letting things spoil or get stale. need a loaf of bread? strawberries? buy them as you need them. daily. and ride your bike to the store and have a basket to transport your goods. save money and get in shape. and be eco friendly!

Actually See Electronics Buttons!!

I took a white permanent paint pen and made easy-to-see markings on all the electronics buttons on my DVD players and sound system. Now I can see just what I'm doing without getting my glasses and a flashlight!!

Now? ~ or - Never?

Do "it" when I think of it! If I wait until later it either doesn't get done or it is on the list (in a pile) that is WAY TOO BIG to even want to tackle.

Make Oatmeal Ahead of Time

I love oatmeal in the morning, but I do not like the texture of instant. As a result, I rarely have time to make my whole oats before I am out the door. I have found that if I prepare my breakfast the night ahead, it re-heats nicely. Now I make enough for 2 or 3 days ahead of time and keep the individual portions in the refrigerator. Fast, easy, and starts my day off right!

Treat yourself

i have found that when I hit a plateau for 5 days or more I treat myself to a special meal that I just love and have not had for a while. Than I go right back on my diet and drink lots of x-tra water for the next few day. It seen this gets my system back into diet more I start to loose weight again.

Chocolate Fix in a gum

I love chocolate (can't get enough of it), but I don't love the calories and fat that go along with it. So, I found and fell in love with Extra Dessert Delights Mint Chocolate Chip sugarfree gum. Only 5 calories, flavor lasts for at least 15 minutes, and it satisfies my chocolate cravings.

Clutter Control

Get a jump atart on keeping your house clean and picked up by developing a habit of never "passing through" a room empty handed. If there is something that needs to be put away (shoes left by the door, etc...) just grab them and carry them with you while you are passing through anyway.
