If you'd rather not have a ton of candy around your house after Halloween, let your child pick out 3 or 4 of their favorite pieces to keep and then tell them to put the rest outside their door when they go to sleep and the switch witch will come get the candy and bring them a present that they have been asking for instead!
If you have a baby, save your baby food jars. They are perfect for storing nuts, trail mix or other "snacky foods" that need portion control. And you can put them in the dishwwasher since they're glass - you should not put plastic in the dishwasher.
If weekends are hard for you because you're around the house more, make a list of projects or things you'd like to get done. Rather than raiding the kitchen, you'll feel better about yourself AND be productive at the same time crossing off your list!

This is simply dehydrated fruit - nothing else and it is organic. There are dried apple, pear, mango, cherries and more and the apples have a satisfying crunch like chips for only 180 calories for the entire bag - which is 6 servings!
For supplements and cheaper organic foods and products, go to vitacost.com - they have a flat $4.99 shipping no matter how much you order and they are so much cheaper than any other site I've found for same products.
