Share your meal with the dogs

I have 3 dogs. Whenever I am eating they are waiting for me to drop some. I share my food with them and I eat less.

ALWAY LOOKING AHEAD

I may have a few bad days but I never let them get me down. I am always looking ahead to see what else I can do to better myself. As I said when the pool was closed a new set of exercises had to be worked up for the colder weather because I may not be able to get out if we have snow like last year. I am always looking at new food ideals to better my health. I love the No milk fudge & I will be making it again. 1 a day or so I never eat anything in large amounts. Change what you do to make it fun

SAVING MONEY IS JUST LIKE A DIET

You know you don't need it...so don't buy it. Just like cheating a diet. You'll feel so much better with those few extra bills than something you thought you needed in that moment. Keep your eyes on your goal.

Create a "laundry list"

For all of those items that only get washed once in a while (curtains, pillows, comforters, etc.), create a list or a computer document of the washing instructions as soon as you get the item. Then if the tag comes off or fades, or if the washing instructions were printed directly on the package, you have them at easy access anytime.

Your journey is sometimes more important than your destination.

"Sure, there may be a lot of 'real estate' between here and where you dream of being, but the road, if you notice, happens to run straight through the middle of paradise." (Mike Dooley, Notes from the Universe)

Pay yourself first

I follow the money saving rules for exercise. Serious savers set a (realistic) goal, and set this aside first, before paying any other bills. I have to do the same when setting aside time for exercise or my busy life will mean that I have no time left. emoticon

CROCKPOT leftover grease cleanup! Amazing trick!

I have a huge, heavy crockpot that I love, but cleanup is a chore. Line a deep, medium-sized strainer with a large coffee filter. Place the strainer over the hole in the sink or a pot, if you're saving the broth. Pour the cooled liquid into the strainer. The coffee filter will catch the bay leaves, grease, etc. Toss the filter into a plastic bag, fill the crockpot with hot soapy water and immerse the strainer washing both at the same time. then go enjoy your evening! emoticon
