Zero Calorie Sweet Pickles

I love sweet pickles on my sandwiches but can't afford the calories. Yesterday, I found that Mt. Olive makes no sugar added ZERO calorie bread & butter pickles as well as sweet jerkins. I put them on my subway sandwich last night when I went out & they were great.

REMOVING MAKEUP AT NIGHT

I got in the habit of removing my makeup right after dinner instead of waiting until bed time when I am too tired.
I also put on my eye cream & other creams then because I am a night owl & when I go to bed late, I don't want to do it then so this helps me make sure it is done ahead of time.

I keep my closet organized by grouping items together such as tops, dresses, slacks, etc. Then I group into colors - all white tops together, all black tops, etc. Then in each of those groups, all sleeveless tops first, then short sleeve tops , then long sleeve tops, etc.

Save Money with These Fabulous Foam Soap Dispensers

I bought 3 Cuisipro soap foam pump dispensers for the kitchen & the 2 baths. Instead of buying the filled liquid soap dispensers, I purchased these. Add 2 tablespoons of liquid soap & fill the rest with water. The soap comes out in foam & you save money by using only 2 T of soap for the whole container.

Check with your electric company to see if they have hours when electricity is cheaper. Phoenix has certain hours & if you sign up & run the dishwasher, pool pump, a/c & dishwasher & other appliances during the low peak hours, you will save money.

Clothes Washing & Organization

I have 2 plastic baskets on top of my washer & dryer. All dirty kitchen dish clothes & towels go into one. The other one is for clothes. If you have a lot of white or light colored items, you will need a third basket. Just drop used items into the correct basket for an easy wash day.

Have a Clean Kitchen at Night & in the Morning

As I make dinner, I put all dirty items in the dishwasher so nothing is left on the counter or in the sink as I cook. By the time dinner is ready, the kitchen is clean. After dinner, put the dirty plates & silver immediately into the dishwasher. Clean the counter & enjoy waking up to a clean kitchen.

MOVIE NIGHT AT HOME

Have a movie night at home instead of going out to the movies is what we do. Turn the lights down low like in the theater, get comfortable & have an intermission where a low cal dessert or low cal popcorn & diet drinks are served. You save money on gas, tickets & snacks at the theater.

FRAGRANT ROOMS WHEN VACUUMING

Put a few drops of Spearmint Essential Oil on a cotton ball & put inside your vacuum cleaner bag. You will have a wonderful scent in your rooms when finished vacuuming. Any fragrance can be used - lemon or vanilla would be good too!
