Minimize your way to a cleaner home

You know the stuff you have stored away in your closets, garage or around the house in general that you NEVER use? Donate it! There is probably someone who can use it more than you and what's the sense in having it sit around collecting dust for you to clean-up? I have found that by minimizing the amount of "stuff" I have the lighter I feel and the less time I spend cleaning!

Food Groupings

I tend to eat the same foods often and have found that the food groupings option in the nutrition tracker saves me time. Rather than searching for individual items I simply find the group and click once.

Cable Schmable!

Forget your expensive cable company, try Netflix. For less than $10 a month you can get unlimited instant streaming on your computer or Netflix ready device (i.e. Blue-Ray Player, Wii, XBox and more). Netflix has many titles to choose from. There are movies, sitcoms and many premium channel series to choose from. Plus, if you don't have cable that will probably mean less time in front of the TV and more time to get up and be active!

So much fun you forget your "exercising"

My favorite workout of all time is ZUMBA! I have so much fun doing it I forget that I am working out. I find myself wanting to do more after my workout is over. I Zumba in the privacy of my own home with Zumba Fitness for the Wii. It is also available on several other game platforms. Trust me, it's a ton of fun!

Shop Second Hand First

When I am in need of clothes or a household item (i.e. kitchen gadgets, plates, cups, storage containers, etc.) I shop the second hand store first. I can usually find what I need for 50% or more off from what I would pay brand new. I once got 5 pairs of jeans for $30, I would have paid $20-$40 each in store.
