Use for berry containers

A Great use for the clear plastic containers that berries come in: start seeds in them! Before they start to come up, you can keep the lid on, to hold in the moisture. Then after the plants start poking their little heads out, cut the top of & use it put in underneith to help catch the water!

motivation to drink water

Pay yourself to drink water! Keep a jar next to your faucet/refrigerator. Everytime you get a glass of water, pay yourself $.10. If you are getting your 8-10 glasses a day, this will be $30 by the end of the month. Take that money & buy yourself something!
