Less is more (healthy): New Federal dietary guidelines out this week.

Fox News: Some of the recommendations include…

-Eat more fruit, vegetables and whole wheat.

-Limit your intake of salt, sugar and saturated fats.

*The new guidelines stop short of telling us to eat less red or processed meat.
Suffer from Heartburn?  Try one of these home remedies that help…naturally. 

*Aloe Vera Juice,  Chewing Gum,  Apple Cider Vinegar,  Saltine Crackers and…

Verne’s favorite = Baking Soda?   About one teaspoon of baking soda mixed in water can be used as a natural antacid for acid reflux. Simple and cheap!  J        http://goo.gl/d1pCjH

 

January is National Radon Action Month – Free radon test kits are available for a limited time on a first-come, first-serve basis. The kits typically retail for $15.  FYI: Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer deaths among non-smokers annually (EPA).  www.ncradon.org

An insane amount of money was spent on apps in 2015?  According to a Time report, Apple device owners spent more than $20 billion dollars in the App Store in 2015.  http://ti.me/1Pf6jpX

 

 

Fact: The average person in the US has as much ‘individual space’ in their home as an entire 1950s family – shared.  On the flip side: There are now more self-storage facilities in the US than McDonald’s restaurants!

Enjoy saving money, feeling less stressed, having more time to spend with family and friends, or simply having a neater home!  De-clutter your life!

 

De-clutter TIP:   Have you heard of Project 333? It’s a minimalist fashion challenge – Here’s the deal: Assess your closet. Choose 33 items of clothing (or less) that you will wear over the next 3 months.  Donate or store the rest.  FYI: Pick classic, neutral pieces and you’ll never be stuck for something to wear.

 

TIP: The ’one in, one out’ rule.

If you really have to buy something new, then swap something else out. This way you’re guaranteed not to slip back into your old, clutter-filled ways!

Check out more ways to de-clutter your way to a more peaceful 2016…

Two New M&M flavors for Valentine’s Day.

  • The limited-edition White Strawberry Shortcake M&Ms will come in pink, white and cream colors. Here’s the description: “a sweet, strawberry morsel that harkens back to a Strawberry Skittle coated with fudgy white chocolate.”
  • The second flavor, Strawberry Chocolate M&Ms, will come in red and pink just like M&Ms classic Valentine’s Day mix.  MARS / CNN

 

Still have that ‘real’ Christmas tree and don’t know what to do with it?  Recycle it. You can drop it off that old tree at one of 10 designated locations (mainly parks and rec center parking lots) in Winston-Salem. http://goo.gl/zkfym6

FYI: The trees taken from the sites will be hauled to the landfill and chipped up, then used by city departments for mulching projects around town.  

 

THIS has a better return on investment than Gold?

In the last 15 years, the average value of a Lego set has gone up, with “pristine condition” sets ‘appreciating’ at 12%, according to the Telegraph. Prices jump up to 36% for discontinued models. Say what? Since 2000, the S&P 500 has returned about 4.2% annually, gold 9.6%.           http://goo.gl/dkCjPX
