Monthly ChecklistsNovember Monthly Checklist
November 1 Place a daily limit on how much candy you and your family will eat now that Halloween is over- until the candy well runs dry.
November 2 It’s time to pack away summer clothes and bring out the winter wardrobe.
November 8 Trying to get the family to eat vegetables can be tough. Add some spice to the mix. Place some salsa or a flavorful dip on the dinner table tonight for a change.
November 9 When candy is out of sight it is also out of mind. Time to put away the left over Halloween candy. People who display sweets and candy on their desk eat approximately 3 more pieces a day than those who placed their candy into a drawer. But sweeter than this – they ate 6 more than those who placed the temptation more than 6 feet away from their workspace.
November 10 Exercise in addition to Calcium helps build stronger bones. Why not introduce some gentle exercise into your morning routine.
November 11 Veterans Day in the US. On this day we show veterans that we deeply appreciate their efforts and sacrifices they have made to keep our country free.
November 12 Add your family’s favorite winter warming drinks to this week’s grocery list. Tip: If you find yourself hungry after dinner- sipping on a hot drink can lessen those lingering hunger pangs.
November 13 Cold weather is a common excuse to stay indoors. Keep in shape this winter by rooting out your favorite exercise DVDs.
November 14 Move your winter flannel sheeting to the top of the pile in your linen closet.
November 15 Today schedule an energy audit with your local energy provider. Slash utility bills this winter by using an electricity monitor to learn how much your appliances are costing you?
November 16 Declutter the amount of email lists you subscribe to. Do you use them, need them, or like them? Do you even get a chance to read them? If the answer to any of these questions is ‘no’ it might be time to stop it.
November 17 Unearth your favorite hearty soup recipes for this winter.
November 20 Keep mittens from being lost this winter – invest in mitten clips to keep them tethered to the sleeves of coats.
November 21 It’s time to start shopping for your 2012 Calendar or planner refills.
November 22 Today is Thanksgiving. Get the family together for a family meal and talk about what you are thankful for this year.
November 23 Clean your dryer vent today.
November 24 Examine all handrails, footings, supports and staircases for stability. Wet and chilly days often make people prone to slipping and grabbing onto a handrail for support.
November 25 Are you a Jogger? Do you have trouble relaxing your hand while running? Jog with a rolled up dollar bill in your hand, you will find that over time your hand adapts to the new handgrip.
November 26 Clean rain gutters and downspouts of leaves and debris. You might like to invest in making a gutter scoop. Recycle a plastic bottle that has a handle and lid. Place the bottle on its side and carefully cut the bottom off at an angle. Bleach or fabric softener bottles are great for this purpose.
November 27 Winter safety tip: go through your home today to ensure that electrical cords are not being covered by heavy carpets, curtains or bedding as overheated cords can become a fire hazard.
November 28 Clean your car’s exterior lights today – this will help improve visibility at night.
November 30 Winter thermostat tip: if your home uses multiple thermostats – for different zones in your home. Adjust temperatures for the way in which the room is used. Eg. The bedrooms are cooler while the bath and living rooms warmer.
