A plate of cooked turkey bacon.

Cooking Turkey Bacon in the OvenI love turkey bacon. I recently found I had 4 packages in the freezer and decided to get them all baked up today. They are great for BLT's, salad, grilled cheese and more. Low in fat and cholesterol, they are a great alternative to regular bacon. Once cooked, you can put them back in the freezer for quick meals and snacks.

 

A sign at the grocery store with free fruit for kids while shopping.

Free Fruit for KidsIf you're going shopping with your young ones, several grocery stores have free treats or fruit for your kids.

 

A row of small empty mason jars with prescription medication bottles.

Mason Jars for Storing Daily MedicationI have tried this and that, and finally found the best way to take my medications. They have mini mason jars for 2/$1.00 at the Dollar Tree. This is 7 jars, one for each day. I have a big "I" on the top to remind me to take my insulin in the AM.

 

Photo of router information

Take a Photo of the Back of your Modem/RouterWhen I plug something into the wall under my desk, I want it to stay there. But when the internet guy hooked my stuff up, he had very little cable that day. That makes it really hard to "turn it around/backwards to see the numbers". Even then, I would have to see things upside down.

 

Two packages of shredded parmesan blend cheese with expired expiration dates.

Free Expired ItemsI went to Sprouts today and an item on my grocery list was parmesan cheese for a baked chicken dinner. I came across this brand called BelGioioso on sale for $2.99. Sounds great because there's parmesan cheese as well as 3 other cheeses so I could make pizza too, but when I checked the expiration "best by" date, it had already passed, 7 days ago!

A container of boxed macaroni and cheese ingredients in the pantry.

Consolidate Food to Save Pantry SpaceI have a big pantry. That said, I also share it with clothes, crafts, and things to sell. So, when I can, I try and make things like food take up less room. I put little things inside bigger things and those inside other things, etc. One thing that always helps me is to consolidate things that are alike to save space.

 

Stray leaves from Brussels sprouts that have been cut in half.

Save Brussels Sprout LeavesWhen I prep brussels sprouts and cut them in half, the leaves would fall off. If you add up all the leaves, that's a lot to toss out. I save the leaves and incorporate them for other dishes.

 

A finished notebook that is bound with yarn instead of a spiral spring.

Use Notebook Spring to Sew Spiral NotebooksIts always hard for lefties to write with spiral notebooks. Plus, I hate those springs as they get distorted over time inside my bag. So, I got used to removing the springs and replacing it with yarn.

 

A hand with blue glittery nail polish.

Paint Glue Under Glitter PolishI love the occasional glitter manicure, but when it's time to change to something more subtle, I seem to use up so much nail polish remover trying to get all the little bits off. A good way to avoid that is by painting a coat of white glue (like Elmer's) on the nails as a base coat.
