Febreeze it Not

Set up a small glass bowl of vinegar in the smelly area. Before the vinegar evaporates, dump it down the drain with water. The vinegar molecules surround the odor molecules and capture them and take them down!

Shave Every Day

If you shave your legs every time you shower, you will always be ready for that spur of the moment event to show off your legs. Also, it won't hurt as much because your legs will be used to the shaving, and it takes less time because there is less to shave off. emoticon

AVOID TEMPTATION!!

Avoid Temptation by not even Looking at those sales papers. If you don't Need any furniture or linens, why look at the sales for them and get tempted and spend money? Same thing for toys for kids and adults, and clothes, and food, and Everything. If you are not ini need of something, Avoid the ads!

Get It Yourself!

Instead of asking your children to get things for you that you need, like a cup of water, get up and get it yourself! This will burn a few more of your calories instead of theirs. emoticon

Hide the Snacks!

Keep snack food out of sight, so you won't blindly be reaching for it just because it's there. If you must keep some out, make them healthy things, like carrots or fruit.

A current paper towel slogan is your hands are only as clean as the towel you use. Yes, this is true - so remember to wash your towels instead of wasting money on paper towels! emoticon

Freecycle dot org

I have found Freecycling a wonderful way to save money. The way it works is that people list what they want to give away. You go through the lists/emails and respond. Pick it up for free. You also declutter by getting rid of Your things on Freecycle. Go to Freecycle.org to find your area Freecycle.

Turn it Down!

If you are like me, you pay more for hot water than cold, because you pay for the water and then to heat it. So when your water is too hot, turn down the hot water. When it is too cold, instead of increase the hot, decrease the cold!
