If you've still got a large collection of CD's gathering dust in your home, consider converting your favorite songs to MP3's on your computer. Upload only your favorite songs and when you're finished, you may be able to sell the used CD's for cash.

Take some time this week to recycle those old magazines, newspapers, and other periodicals in your home. Remember, if next month's magazine arrives in the mail and you haven't read this month's, it's time to re-evaluate that subscription. Same goes for newspapers.

“As a child my family’s menu consisted of two choices: Take it or leave it."
This week, try to plan your meals around food already in the house - whether it's fresh, frozen or packaged. You'll be surprised by how much money you'll save by using up what you already have. Be creative!

Before you go to bed tonight, remember to set your clocks ahead one hour (unless you live in Hawaii or Arizona) for Daylight Savings Time. Sweet Dreams!

I found this great article in the March issue of County Living Magazine.
Transform a Closet into an Office
What I love about this closet/office makeover:
The color - first and foremost - it's Benjamin Moore's "At Sea".
I love the pegboard attached to the door to hang office supplies at the ready
Love the wallpaper on the back wall - it's nice to have something pretty to look at when you're sitting in a closet/office space
Love the cool wicker/iron chair - $89.99 from Ikea.
Oh, and who wouldn't love a crystal chandelier hanging above you in your closet!

When trying to decide what shoes to keep and what to give away, put a small adhesive dot inside the left shoe. When you wear the shoes, take out the dot. After 6 to 8 months, any shoes that still have the dot in place should be donated.
