Frugal tip : Make your own candles--I did.
Friday, January 18, 2013
I just hate it when the store bought candles wicks burn out before all the wax is used. So I have been saving the used candles and this morning I made new candles from the wax of left over candles.
I began to make candles years ago in my 20's just for fun. I still enjoy doing it and by recycling the unused wax it is also quite frugal.
I have been thinking a lot lately about wastefulness, waste of time, money, environment, and wasted promises to myself to lose weight.
I am going to try something different. I am going to stop dieting and just eat when I am really hungry. Drink a glass of water before I eat a meal or snack to see if I am really hungry. Eat what I really am hungry for not what some diet tells me to eat. Eat mindfully-savoring every bite. AND stop eating when I am full. Exercise to have fun. Reactivate hobbies I enjoy so I am playing again.
The sun is shining today even with 25 degrees, that makes me hopeful, happy, and NOT HUNGRY.
