I recently noticed that I was in need of an storage container for some small items I didn’t want to store in a plastic resalable bag. So what did I do? I went shopping. I priced several jars that were in different colors and sizes.
But as I was about to place the jars in my shopping cart I came up with the idea to use a left over jam jar I rinsed to recycle. Duh..
The jar was perfect for its determined use and most importantly I was more ‘green” and I saved money.
I’ve listed some more ideas you can use jars for below. Also if you have trouble removing the label an easy tip is to soak the glass jar in warm soppy water or my saturate the label with glass cleaner and peel off.
Teal light candles
Cotton balls/Q tips
Can you think of any other uses?

None of the secrets of success will work unless you do.
This past weekend I visited Trader Joe’s for the first time. I can honestly say that I fell in love. The staff was friendly and happy to assist. I also loved the way items were merchandise. I must say that one of my pet peeves is shopping in a dysfunctional environment.
Another great things about Trader Joe’s are its prices. As you know one of my New Year’s Resolution is to eat 80% healthy and what this implies for me is that my diet consist of organic foods. And if you’ve every had to shop on a budget the last thing you are placing in your shopping cart is organic food.
And is it just me or do you sometimes feel a little disappointed when you have to choose between organic and non organic food because of the cost? Well I can honestly tell you I didn’t feel uneasy once as I shopped at Trader Joe’s. I was so impressed with their prices that I went out of the limb and purchased some snacks I would have past up at more expensive health food markets. So I can honestly say Trader Joe’s is my new go to health food store.
Change is good.
Don't be afraid of failing. It doesn't matter how many times you fall down. All that matters is how many times you keep getting up.

On yesterday, I pulled out my list of my New Year’s Resolution to see if I’m
still on tract. What I discovered is that out of 33 my resolutions I am on
achieving about 60% of my goals. With this being said instead of tackling each
resolution all at once I decided to divide my list into sections.
The first set of goals I’m focusing on is my health. Here are a few of my
Exercise 3x a week
Focus on a cleaner diet at least 80% clean
Practice yoga and meditation at least 10 minutes a day
Put on facial moisturizer daily < I know this a MUST
The idea of breaking my goals into section will allow me to focus on a few
goals daily that way it will become routine. Also it will help ease the feeling
of defeat. I’m guessing it will take me at least four weeks to turn these goals
So, how are doing with your New Year’s Resolutions?
