Make your own mother yogurt starter

If you make your own yogurt, you probably spend a pretty piece of change on a yogurt starter that has to be replenished pretty quickly. Well you can make your own yogurt starter that will last at least a year from chili pepper stems.

Freshly ground peanuts won't separate for months.

I noticed when I bought freshly ground peanut butter at Whole Foods that it didn't separate at all. So I finally let a small bit sit and see how long it takes to separate -- 4 months. The moral of the story is to buy it freshly ground when possible. I've found cheaper places than Whole Foods. emoticon

Do the little things when you think of them

As you go through the day and think of things you want to do later, or tomorrow, stop and do something that is part of the task so it is done and you don't have to remember it. Example: You need to take something to work tomorrow. Put it by your car keys so it is close when you pick up your keys tomorrow morning. Or you need to call someone tomorrow. Put their name and phone number on a piece of paper and put that near your keys.

Clean something to music

Find something in your house that you don't clean on a regular basis, like lampshades, cabinet tops or doors, washing walls, etc., and put on some music and clean and sing your way to remove your stress. Sing loud and clean hard, and you'll be stress free and will have accomplished something good at the same time.

Move around as you are Cooking

Today while fixing lunch for my kids, I danced around the kitchen. My son asked what I was doing and I told him I was exercising during the time I was making the lunch. When the timer goes off I would have been continuously moving around for 5 to 10 minutes or more and not even realize cause I was having fun doing all types of move, like air punching, etc. And it's fun.

Keep it Moving

I dance while doing dishes and cooking. The music keeps me motivated. I prefer dancing to salsa or reggae music. In fact whenever I have to be in the house I dance around. emoticon
