Keep Those Measuring Cups In Eye Sight In The Kitchen

This Sparked Me!

Having my measuring cups on a ring on a magnet hook on my fridge helps remind me to measure each and every time I open the fridge.

When I have my measuring devices in eye sight it makes me accountable to have to measure and stay in portion control.

    hi, i use smaller plates 7 inches instead of 9/10 inches as it makes the food look more on the plate as if the plate looks full you kid yourself you have had more than you actually have had. i tend to measure by eye and check my measurements every few weeks with my scales and find my measurements are quite on or even under! but i think i will get measuring cups and spoons to make 'guessing' easier. ta for tip xx emoticon
