Odors in the basement

Place clean coffee cans filled with charcoal briquette's (not those with lighter fluid) around your basement, they will absorb basement smells. You can change the briquette's every 3 or 4 months, you can tell when they need changing. I have a large basement and have 6 cans down there.

Post Every Day

I find that if I post every day I stay on track. Even the busy days I read a few blogs and post all my foods, when I do not do this I tend to stray.
Thanks Sparkpeople for all the support.
