Little Things Matter

One small thing I’ve done recently is stop putting sugar in my coffee. Since I drink 3 or 4 cups per day with 2+ teaspoons of sugar in each, I’ve cut my daily calorie intake by 200+ calories per day. The difference is that I’ve lost 10 pounds just since Jan 1st, with no other significant lifestyle changes whatsoever. One simple change CAN make a big difference.
I’m talking small changes, nothing earth shattering.
Could you spend 10 minutes making a grocery list and clipping a few Internet coupons?  Study after study shows that those shopping with a list spend less. Could you give it a shot? What if you saved only $3 per week? Would another $150 make a difference to you this year?
How about gathering up all the unused stuff that’s in your basement/garage/attic and selling it on Ebay? After all, you aren’t using it and someone might pay you for it. Come to think of it, I have an old laptop I need to sell.
