I have a drawer set aside in the fridge for my lunch choices. I pack my lunch 5 days a week and I don't like to spend a lot of time making up lunches. The drawer is filled with little one serving goodies of each of the food groups. I have yogurt, cottage cheese, babybel cheese and laughing cow wedges. I have baby carrots, celery sticks, bell pepper slices, apple slices and clementines. There are single servings of hummus, crackers, pretzels and tortillas folded into baggies.
I go to the fridge with my lunch bag and toss in 4 items...a different combination every day and it never gets boring. I just make sure there's a fruit and a veggie, a protien and a carb and I am good to go!

Organizing a home or office drawer is quite simple. Buy some mini 4 x 4 baskets at a Dollar Store, Wallmart or any other department store that sells small baskets. Please inside the drawer for paperclips, post-it-notes, pens, business cards, etc. Great for the "junk drawer" at home that seems accumulate all kinds of items. 41

Is your husband a do-it-yourselfer? Are there nuts, bolts, nails and screws in every toolbox, old coffee can and drawer in the garage? But when you ask him to help fix something he never has the right size and just has to go to the hardware store? If your WalMart has a craft section, buy one of those plastic frames that has little drawers -get the largest you can buy, Clear out a toolbox and a drawer of all of the miscellaneous nuts, etc.,separate them out. Surprise him when you're done, act as
if it were a present. You might even throw in a hint like, "Honey, remember how you're always looking for the right sized (nut, bolt, etc.)? I've started this handy organizer so you can find any size & I'll help get things organized right now. Aren't you glad you married me?" What can he say?
