To make cleaning fun --- I took out my belly dancing hip clanging/ jingling/shimming scarf and I wiggle to good, fast music and shimmy my way to a cleaner home and have fun at the same time. I might not be a good dancer but I like the uniform of a belly dancer.
I lose everything, but I can't remember the last time I lost my keys or my purse. That's because my keys are always attached to my purse strap. Yep, it looks dorky, and I jingle when I walk. It's worth it though not to have that moment when I realize I left my purse in a movie theater or restaurant.
I am faced with temptation all day. When I make a positive choice (like putting the cookies away after giving one to the kids) I pay myself a 25 cents. I put the quarter in my pocket & the jingle of the change reminds me that I'm doing well. At the end of the month I buy myself a treat!
Get a roll of quarters from the bank and keep them in a jar where they are handy.
