Washing Machine Drain Hose

In order to keep drains free of lint, rather than buy the the gadget the stores cell use old knee highs or panty hose. With the knee highs just cut a slit in the side and tie to the clip at the top of the hose, if using panty hose cut of a ten inch section from the foot and attach the same. Collects all the lint. emoticon

Breaking A Plateau

When hit a Plateau I increase my walking by 10/15 minutes, eat fresh Pineapple as it is natural diuretic and I stay off the scale for 2 weeks. I do this because it is very discouraging not to see a weigh loss when you are working hard.

When making soups, stews and casserole I have found substituting Italian seasoning in place of salt makes for a lovely flavor. emoticon

Brussel Sprouts

I love this good for you vegetable, many do not. I found a recipe that you add 1tbs sun dried tomato pesto and 1tbs toasted almonds to cooked sprouts, very good.
