UPDATE So far it is going well. My biggest challenge is deciding when a meal is done and cleanup needs to start. Not everyone in the family eats at the same rate, so (especially for breakfast and lunch), the people who eat the fastest usually wander off and start doing something else while others ar...

I've tried Flylady, I've tried setting a very simple weekly area-schedule, and I've tried more elaborate planning systems. None of them have worked for me. Either they require remembering too many rules or habits, they require keeping track of it, or at the very least they require sticking to a sche...

Everyday Cleaning System

I am going to try a new everyday system, to help me tackle the mess that my house is too often in. It has one rule: Clean up after every meal. Some details in how I plan to apply this rule: When asking myself "what needs to be cleaned", I will look around and answer that question for myself. Broadly...

For sure. In the past I've found that sucking on hard candy helped with my nausea, so maybe some mints and dry Saltines would be enough to keep the nausea down between meals. Neither of those would be a big temptation for me to overindulge on, since I'm not really that fond of them.

Thanks! That makes a lot of sense, to just count something as medicine if it's only for the purpose of helping with the nausea.

Did you have much trouble with morning sickness? I've been wondering how to handle trying not to snack, when eating something dry seems to be the only way to keep the nausea at bay.

Thanks!

And yeah, I can see taking the 2% cash back option, for the naturally frugal. I'm curious if you have any feedback about the spreadsheets or the "Only Spend What You Got" name, but if you don't have time for that, that's fine.

" Only Spend What You've Got ".... is that a snappy enough name for this system? Some additional thoughts: - With this system, you don't have to constantly record your purchases. - The spreadsheets are set up so that what stays in your bills account is (a) all the regular monthly bills that come out...

Everyday Financial System

This is a financial system that I've been doing that works really well, so I'd like to share it. Each time you get a paycheck: 1. Put into a "bills" checking account however much you need to set aside for all the bills that you know will be coming up. 2. Put aside into savings however much you plan...
