With Christmas in the not too distant past, yet safely tucked away in boxes in the garage. It is time to start working on projects for next Christmas. So last Sunday afternoon I slotted some time for a mug of my special hot cocoa and time to work on my little project. First things first my special hot cocoa. shop that had what I was looking for. I made my purchase and then shopped for a couple of inexpensive stamps (after Christmas holiday stamps are usually on sale) and bought some ink. I wanted my postcards to be simple yet special. I think I did pretty good.

Do you ever get frustrated over the cost of some of your favorite products? I mean you wouldn't think to quit using them because you love the product but they are a little pricey and the economy has you thinking maybe you should cut cost somewhere. Well I decided some time ago to email these companies and nicely ask if I could get some coupons for their lovely products and you know what...they sent me some coupons. Like for example I adore BonAmi cleaners, but you never see coupons in the Sunday paper for anything they make, so I emailed them and those nice people sent me an entire years worth of cents off on their powdered cleanser. Biokleen has are safe for the enviroment. I email them and a nice lady sends me a bunch of coupons. Field Roast meatless products. I am especially fond of their sausages I use them frequently in dishes that call for actual sausage. The company is located in my old hometown, but again you seldom see a coupon in the Sunday paper for anything from Field Roast. Just a short and sweet email and they will send you a couple of coupons. Kerrygold will send you a nice coupon.

I don't usually do New Years Resolutions...they generally don't work, but I found myself needing to start paying closer attention not to what I was eating, but how much I was eating. I have always had a problem with portion control (what can I say I love food). I signed up with this online program and started paying attention to how many calories I was consuming a day. Quite an eye opener I have to say. Now of course I hope to shed a few pounds on this journey of calorie counting, but we shall see. I also don't stick to my calorie counting on the weekends.
