Check your water. You may be throwing money away by the handfuls! If you've always poo-pooed talk about hard water, you may want to check it out a little closer. Recently, a friend was talking about the water difference between her home in the city and the new one in the country. Surprisingly, the water was better.

Why was the city water better? The answer is because it was working effectively. When your water doesn't leave a bunch of minerals and other junk behind, everything works better. You may be able to stop a handful of shampoo to get a good lather, throwing away discolored clothes, give up cleaning the inside of the toilet's water tank (yuck!)

To stop throwing money down the drain and clean up your act, you may want to try out this free 2oz sample of CitraCharge. Want to give it a really good try, opt for the Buy 2 get one FREE free offer. And if you're really serious about saving money, take a look at their NuvoH2O System.

So your little darling is becoming a “big boy” or “big girl” and it's time to start potty training. You may be the kind of parent who gets a little teary eyed because s/he isn't a baby any more.

Every breath you take is a blessing, just ask someone with asthma, chronic bronchitis or COPD. You've seen the commercials for Advair, Spiriva and other meds on TV. You may even have someone in your family with one of these breathing problems. Unless you've asked or done some investigation, you may not realize that both Advair and Spiriva can each cost about $200 for a month's supply. That is about $400 just to be able to breathe! If a loved one needs one of these meds and isn't covered by insurance, the chances are high that they aren't getting the treatment consistently.

To help help out with the costs, you may want to print out these coupons or share these links.

Yoga is a great way to keep your mind and body fit, especially if you have physical limitations such as multiple sclerosis. There's no jumping around like a cat on a hot tin roof, which is a big plus for anyone who needs a variety of slower, more focused, or controlled movements. If you have or know someone with MS, you may want to grab a free copy of the My MS Yoga DVD.

Sleep, a beautiful word to anyone who anyone who has ever been deprived of it. Being proactive can help you get the rest you need without ever needing a sleep aid; however, there may be times when you (and your doctor) decide that you need a little extra help.

If you're concerned about taking a melatonin sleep aid that is animal-based, synthetically made, contains gluten, or comes in a gel-cap you may want to consider a plant sourced, alternative. One such item is Don't Disturb Me, which has been approved by the UK Vegetarian Society and is now available in the U.S.
