Instead of boiling eggs, heat the oven to 325 and put the eggs in a cupcake pan and bake for 25-30 mins. The shells come off amazing. I saw this on pinterest and had to try it and it worked like a charm! Best thing I found on pinterest.
I have a really bad habit of buying fresh fruits and veggies and not eating them in time so I have started buying canned fruit and veggies. I buy the normal ones in the regular syrup and then I rinse them thoroughly to get rid of all the syrup and most of the sodium and repackage them.
I have trouble saving money for my car insurance and I hated paying the extra fee for paying it in installments. I opened a "side" savings account at my credit union titled "Insurance." I am only allowed to take money out of that account for my car insurance! I found it makes my life so much easier!
I use my debit card for EVERYTHING so I started rounding up my purchases in my register. If I spent $23.05 on gas, then I put it in my checkbook as $24. Also, when I deposit money, I always put like $10 less in. This way there is always money floating in my account and I am less likely to overdraft.
When I go out to eat, I order a house salad w/veggies only and then if I don't like any of the sides that go with my dish, I ask them not to put anything on there. If I don't have french fries in front of me then I am not missing them and w/the salad I'm nice and full.
