When I have time on the weekends, I make as many different dishes to freeze as I can, using common ingredients - like chopped peppers, onions, garlic, or even white sauce. While the cutting board and knives are out, I get all my chopping done and only have to clean up once.
Sometimes I just freeze the chopped veggies in 1/4 cup baggies for the next cook-a-thon, if I don't have everything I need or don't have time to make the whole dish.

Whenever possible, we wear our clothes for two days (not consecutively), THEN put them in the laundry. You may need to touch up with an iron, but water, detergent, power all cost money. Also, laundering wears clothes out in a hurry.
I hate the taste of coffee or Tea so to get my caffeine I drink coke. But being allergic to aspertine I can not drink diet. So I have cut myself down by drinking 2 oz twice a day. Once in at lunch plus once after dinner. It seems to satisfy my needs. First 3 days were the hardest but after that I really don't miss it much.
