Some self tried tips

a) To clean your counter top in kitchen when it has stubborn grease and mess using baking soda. First wipe the counter top with a wet towel and then sprinkle baking soda all over to. Then after a minute using a wet paper napkin ( preferably) , start scrubbing the counter top, you will immedietly see that the some of the stubborn grease starts coming off. Rinse the paper napkin and again repeat (It might take a while if the cleaning has not been done for a long time). But be patient.

b) Freshly crushed pepper is much better than ground pepper. Just add it to your daily omelete or scrambled egg to start with to know the difference:)

c) The dried leaves of a plant act as good manure to the plant. I tried it on my rose plant.

d) If you have problems or restrictions owning a pet (even an aquarium) and you are so fond of owning something, own a plant:) its like taking care of a kid:) water it, nourish it (all this can be done with less cost than owning a pet) , and it will smile at you with its new leaves, and budding flowers, even better if you grow vegetables, you get your own home grown veggies:) You can even buy a pot from your local "stop n shop" store .

e) If you feel hungry and very tempted to snack on chips, sweets, just calm down and go to the fridge and grab the whole bunch of fruits, cereals, nuts, milk (just do that without thinking that you are going to eat them). Then start hogging with these, dont even grab a plate, just hog on this:) might think I have completly lost my mind, believe me, it works mostly.

f) I read it somewhere in Internet: To avoid unnessesary stress in life:

- There is no need to make your home look like those in movies or soaps or even cookery shows
- Think baby steps: It works not only when you are on the mission to learn something new, but also when you want to adjust with difficult people.
- Just thank God for what he is given you till now, not just keep asking for more. Its always a "ThanksGiving Day" (or night) when it comes to God ;)

if you are really really thirsty dont go and buy that can of pepsi..

In a glass of buttermilk..smash a small piece of ginger..add half green chilly, few curry leaves and whip it up..this tastes awesome..:-)

Great tips, thank you. I would also suggest cleaning and putting things away immediately after your done with them, I've been doing this for couple of weeks now and it works and I dont fear the cleaning days anymore:-)
