save money EVERY holiday

the day after a holiday, stores discount their prices on holiday goods usually be 30%, and on down each day after the holiday. I get greeting cards, wrapping paper, trinkets for party bags, table settings, picture frames, gifts, etc. all on clearance. I can use them for the next season, but some things you can use all year round, like table settings and cupcake papers... then next season you save time AND money.
Target, grocery stores, even Victoria's Secret!

Reward System

To motivate myself to excersize and eat within my calorie range each week, I have modified a reward system I found on a message board here.
I keep a clear jar on the counter, and a small calendar to highlight days in which I do some kind of excersize.
I reward myself with 1 cent each minute I work out.
One dollar for each pound I lose.
5 dollars for each 5 pound mark.
one dollar per week I eat withing my calorie range all 7 days. ( I allow myself 2 days of per month for TOM)

Nutrition and Fitness Tracker in the Morning!

I pack my breakfast, lunch, and snacks at night before i go to bed. In the morning, the first thing I do as I get to work is to track my food and fitness on the trackers, even before I have eaten it. Then I feel more accountability to stick to this plan throughout the day and to get to the gym at night!
