Don't buy bag clips, clothes pins, etc, recycle your wired bag ties from the produce department or from bread bags that have them. You can reclose opened bags, etc using them and also use them for craft items to tie things together like bows, flowers, etc. I've used them to even organize loose pencils, pens, etc in drawers and cabinets. There are endless uses for them. Post your uses here too. You may know of some that I don't.

Even if we organize, zip tie or tape wires, they seem to always become a mess and you can never figure out which wire goes where. We bought a package of multi-colored electrical tape & put a piece of tape around the wire at the end that goes into the TV and then put a matching piece on the back of the component , this cuts down on confusion since we have Blu Ray, stereo, a VCR & kids that pull out the wires to play video games 28
I've figured out a way to make going to the gym not only required but desired!!! I load my iphone with a great TV series (one with a few seasons that build on the last i.e. the Sopranos) and am only allowed to watch it while on the stairmaster. I tend to end my workout at a very suspenseful moment, insuring I will return the next day to watch the conclusion. I'll also download great songs/podcasts I'm only allowed to listen to while lifting weights.
Recommended TV shows during cardio: Sopranos, The Wire, Six Feet Under, Breaking Bad - you can buy them all on itunes.
