Reusing Ziplock Bags

I just hate to throw out a "lightly" used ziplock bag... so I recycle them by using them to bag up waste from the kitty litter. They would also be great for doggie doo!

Using those FREE shower caps from hotels

I pick up and use those free shower caps as quick covers for food served in bowls. They make great covers on the picnic table or in the fridge. Also work well as shoe covers when packing shoes in your suitcase. You put them over the soles and keep your clothes from getting dirty.

Wii "Walk it Out" ~ A fun new way to get your walking in!

I recently purchased "Walk it Out" for Wii and what fun! You walk around Rhythm Island and earn chips with each step that you spend to decorate the island with trees, cars, streetlights, etc. Really cute and an hour of walking can go by in a snap!

Omron Pedometer - Takes a lickin and keeps on tickin!

I love this little gadget! It definitely motivates you to get up and move. I wear it daily (it resets itself at midnight) and every week download the info to my computer so I can see at a glance how I am doing. It went through the washer last week and still works... One tough little gadget!

Soften up brown sugar that has gone hard

In certain climates, brown sugar will get hard and becomes hard to use. Just microwave it for a minute and it will soften up just like new!

Indoor Walking...means no more excuses!

I live in an area where is rains more often than it doesn't... so walking outside can be challenging. To keep up with my 10,000 steps a day program, I use the Leslie Sansone walking DVDs. I highly recommend them for beginners or any walker... they are great for those days when you can't get out.

Using Green Beans in place of pasta

I know it sounds strange, but I make my spagetti and use green beans instead of pasta. I get my vegetables and save tons of calories. My DH likes his pasta so I do his plate using half and half and he is perfectly happy. Give it a try... it is a great substitution.

Using Containers for Sliced Melons, Fruits and Veggies

When I buy a canteloupe, honeydew melon or watermelon ~ I slice it up and store the prepared fruit in the fridge a plastic lidded shoe box container from the $1 store. The fruit is ready to go and makes meal prep a snap. Also works well for storing prepared veggies such as carrot and celery sticks

Quick and Easy Meals

I keep a small journal style notebook in my kitchen. When I fix a quick, easy meal I jot down the ingredients and instructions in the notebook. When I am in a hurry and can't decide what to cook, I can just flip through the notebook to remind myself of quick easy meals
