When grocery shopping with my husband we bring the weekly flyer. We break-up the shopping. I circle the things for sale in the flyer with pictures. This way he gets the sale items and not just the item.

They say a picture is worth 1000 words...how true. This week one of my teams posted a FOOD PHOTO BLOG challenge. WOW!!! What an eye opener! I saw what I was eating and also what others were eating. Very inspiring. Then I got to thinking...pictures could be very useful. Here is my idea:
Photograph your meals and post them on your fridge with magnets. You can use them to meal plan for the day or week; plan for groceries needed; decide whether a new recipe was a hit or a miss; to change up items for different seasons and to add fresh items at the grocer as they become available.
Have you recently been in a hurricane, tornado or other disaster & all your precious pictures have stuck to their frames or are a mess in a Photo Memories Scrapbook & you didn't have them backed up? If you have pictures that have been submerged in water, have stuck together or stuck on their picture frames - they really aren't lost. Take the pictures & put them in a large container filled with just barely warm tap water. If the H2O gets dirty, replace it until it stays clean. The water will
gently separate the pictures from each other. You can simply hang them on a line with a couple of clips at the top. If dealing with a large picture, placing a number of clips at the bottom will prevent the picture from curling during the drying process. Your precious memories can be saved!.
