Listen to your kids! They are surely to tell you that you're the greatest, the prettiest or most handsome, the nicest, the smartest, the most fun, and the best parent or grandparent, aunt or uncle around!!!

Just Say No To Stinky Shoes!

After taking a load of clothes from the dryer, I place the used dryer sheet into a shoe. We rotate through the shoes to replace the sheets with each new load of laundry. It has worked wonders as a cheap (sort of free!) way to keep shoes smelling fresher!

Mood Lifters

When climbing out of a depression, it's helpful to me to make encouraging comments on the boards to OTHERS who are struggling with something.

And I find that those SparkPoints are highly motivating as a visual way to see that I'm accomplishing something. I have a self-imposed rule for earning comment points, though. I do play the games sometimes but don't do those until I have made five legitimate comments, either encouraging someone or asking a real question regarding this lifestyle change!

How To NOT Lose The Missing Sock!

In our house, each family member gets a zippered lingerie laundry bag to keep their own dirty socks. I toss the bags into the washing machine and dryer. They are already sorted for me at folding time!

Keeping Microwave Clean

To keep the microwave clean, we use coffee filters to cover bowls of soup, oatmeal, etc. It's cheaper and easier than plastic wrap or wax paper. It's cheaper than paper towels, too. We also have a "tupperware-type" dome that can be used over and over again, but it does have to be cleaned with things that splatter, so the coffee filters are perfect for splatter items!
