I've just finished reading this book....and it was really great! I'm kind of an organizing junkie anyway (though I don't always apply what I learn), but this book was full of fun and useful tips. I checked it out at our library. You should check it out at yours!
Here are just some of the things I copied out of the book:
- Put rubber car mats over your wind shield in the winter and they won't frost over.
- To get more juice from a lemon, microwave it for 30 seconds. You'll get twice the juice and loose no nutritional value.
- Write your check for the total bill amount, before coupons, and then put that cash toward a savings goal you have.
- If you want de-boned chicken breasts, put in the whole chicken breasts and parboil them for 10 to 12 minutes, and the meat will peel right off the bone.
- A toddler can set the table. Make a placemat out of paper and draw the shapes of the fork, plate, spoon, and glass. The child gets to put each item in its proper place.
- Set 90 day goals in these categories:
- Physical goals (ex. 50 sit ups by such and such date)
- Spiritual goals (read a chapter from the Bible every day)
- Community support goals (hand out red cross fliers)
- Mental goals (memorize the 50 state capitals)
- Social goals (invite so and so over for supper)
- Professional goals (study one new course)
- Financial goals (save so much toward this thing by so and so date)
- Marriage/family goals (do a family fun outing once a month)
