200th post, Tip Tuesday

This is the 200th post of my blog and it just so happens to be my 25th birthday! I've grown and changed a lot since post 1 and I've really felt a change in my writing. Thanks so much to all of you who have been loyally tuning in over the past 20 months. Look forward for more to come.

This calls for a celebration.

Without further ado here is your Tip Tuesday.

 1. From thesimpledollar.com, use the 10 second rule when shopping. Pick up something for 10 seconds and ask yourself why am I buying this? Do I need it? If you don't, put it back. It will really help impulse buying when you really take a moment to think about the purchase. Has worked beautifully for me.

2. From sistertosister.org, drink one or two full glasses of water before meals. The water will help you to feel more full so you don't fill up on too much food that will leave you stuffed and uncomfortable.
