Clean the bathroom closets and cupboards to check for what you have..shampoos, soaps, razor refills, etc before you add something to your grocery list. First time I did this I found 3 bottles of shampoo I bought in double "value packs" that I forgot I had!

I make a menu for the upcoming week. Take inventory of pantry, freezer, etc., add any ingredient needed to itemized list. I usually shop at one store,so I have grocery list divided by isle, and note on list if I have a coupon. I stay exclusively to my list unless the store is offering specials.
I buy milk in gallons, then freeze. You have to pour a bit off the top so the containers don't burst, but just use a pitcher. When I am going to need a new milk, I just take out of freezer, put in fridge, it will thaw in a day or two. Use as usually would.
we tend to focus on the "bad" more than the good. I , what i should not have ate, what i did not do, what i can't fit into... blah,blah,blah. taking inventory of all the good that you are, and that you do will help to keep you on the positive track! i always try to remember one good choice or outlook ... leads to another
