Feeling menopausal?

If you are feeling like you are menopausal, OR if you have questions about menopause, stop wondering.

Check out your local library for some very informative books, OR
check out the SP's "Perimenopause to Menopause what should you expect" Team.

It's okay!

It's okay to purchase Gently Used items. Most all items, we need/want do NOT have to be new. Shop around, get the best price, and pay CASH.

TURN OFF!

Turn off all electrical items when not in use.

Using a Power Strip may help and simplify. It takes a while to establish the new habit, but worth it. Our electrical bill is down to $15/mo.

DIY

Think about all the things you pay other people to do for you. i.e. car repairs, tuneups or mowing the grass. Learn how to do it yourself. Take a class, read a book, check the internet. My DH has saved us TONS of money by doing things himself. I learned to cut my own hair by watching how it was done. I learned to cut DH's hair by watching how it was done.

Get acquainted with your local Senior Center.

Even if you are a youngster! Senior Centers may have homemade crafts for sale for a reasonable price. They may have books, magazines, or jigsaw puzzles you can borrow. They may offer classes for free, also.

They are also a 'fount' of information, a good resource to know about.

It's worth an outing.

The "no-no" jar

Each time you consciously say "no" to something that goes against your weight-loss goal, reward yourself by dropping a nickle or dime into a jar. Use this sacrifice money to splurge on something you've been wanting. Then begin the again. You will 'gain' in the right way!

Get acquainted with your local Library.

Your Library may have more to offer than just books and movies.
They can offer classes, internet services, organized times for children, and free stuff.

One time, I was able to 'borrow' an engraver.
