3  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Healthy Eats-Along 2012 on: January 06, 2012 05:30:21 PM
several tricks I've used on myself over the years with amazing results:
to trick the eye since we first eat with our eyes: I use salad plates instead of the large ones that came with the place setting I have.  I've found that by using the salad plates I ate less and didn't do second helpings since my plate was filled. with a normal size plate there was always room left to add 'just a bit of this or that'.   
cut out sodas - dd and I did a raw diet in 2010 she lost 12 lbs in 30 days, I lost 23- she's not had a soda since then. (funny about her: we were sick over the holidays 2011 and I gave her a alka seltzer cold 'drink'- she took one sip and looked at me horrified- 'mama you gave me sprite'- took some time to convince her I'd not tricked her)
try sprouting your own veggies (my fav is radish sprouts)
juicing- easy way to get your greens and so much energy you'll have.

saved $6000 today by closing out our cking acct. THE STORY thus far: ordered ck from checks unlimited at the end of last mth, required signature for cks well little ole brown decided to leave them *they went to memphis, and were left on the doorstep of apt, no note or anything, called today got tracking number from CU.com, then called bank and was told 'better safe than sorry' so 3 hrs, one rainstorm, later and new free cks are on their way AGAIN.  this time I know for sure they are coming to my house.  so that was my frugal today, didn't do any shopping in town.

got the daybed up last night, kids love it (once we finally figured out how to get the trundle to work it will go either 2 twins or 1 full when trundle is extended)
oh wait I did do something, I picked plums to make some jelly have them soaking now will fix jelly tomorrow.  we love plum jelly but I'm selfish and wont let the kids have any.... I'm a mean mama. Wink

CLM- I got them in the paper goods section at walmart ( they come in matte- i recommend this) or glossy 8x10 sheets and they go in a 3 ring binder for presentations.  I've also had success using the clear contact paper in the household section to 'laminate' cardstock so the kids would have travel wet/dry boards for in the car.

I just scored a daybed with trundle from a friend of my mothers It will be used in my l/r as my new sitting area.  now I just have to find a way to get it taken apart (the lady's nephew is suppose to take it apart) now if i can find someone w/a truck to haul it for me.

got any top loading sheet protector's laying about??? that's what I use for my dry/wet erase board in my journal (free supplies from my stashes, as opposed to the $10 for one from the store. I print off my master lists on card stock that I had for years (this from a time when  I thought I'd make cards----yeah right) I just loved my master grocery list and even got complimented on it many times when I'd be in the store and women and a cpl of men 'now that's a neat idea, can I steal it?"  
and when my kids were younger I got a roll of clear contact paper and put it on the wall (as I couldn't paint the wall with chalkboard paint) it lasted for a while on the fridge and they loved making art on it, I'd keep it for a few days then they would make more.  plus I have one 8x10 sheet on the freezer door where I keep a running list of what I'm going to need to shop for come grocery day.
and YEAH!! B, a new baby congratulations.
frugal week only spending money on gas for the car, since it's summer and we aren't doing a lot of driving about town a tank of gas will last me almost 4 weeks.
