got to do. yes, and just trying pare down your war, joe, to things that you really feel comfortable in or things that you really love and just get rid of all the others. you know, if you don't like to do laundry, you know, and just just try not to just accumulate a lot of close. it's just gets very cluttered. and again, you're suffocating in your stuff. so would you suggest maybe if you're you if you end up buying something, maybe getting rid of something in place of the new. piece of something like that. that's a great that's a great idea. and actually had a friend that did that with her kids. whenever they got toys. if they got a new toy, they had to get rid of one. so they never had this abundance of clutter like we have down in our >> raj is a very thing to do. ok and ok, this is for folks who obviously are maybe trying to eat a little less simplifying your pantry.
7:50 am
>> oh, and i recently did this and i found so many expired things in my pantry. so definitely clean out the expired goods, clean out anything that it doesn't near issue. so maybe the junk food and and also start focusing on and buying foods that are seasonal and local. so, you know, go to your farmers market and and try and get something that's very fresh that that's going to know or she the best. and you consider doing more grocery shopping and picking up at the grocery store. yes, and i started doing that. and i found that i spend less and i don't buy in polls. you know, i don't do any impulse buying. and by just what i need, because i know i can get some the next time versus going to the store and saying, well, i don't know what i'm going to be here next. and just loading at the cart. and what happens is we
7:51 am
waste a lot of food. i mean, general american stowaway a lot of food, mostly produce. so and that's that kind of goes ties into the next thing. the most expensive food you can buy is the ones that you throw away well. and so this next one is simplifying your expenses. and i did this for, you know, al, thank you. i was going to say, you know what my new year's resolution is >> yes, so so this one you don't want to work harder to pay for things that you really don't need. so when you go out and you're thinking about buying something, think about, do i need this or is this just a buy out of convenience? so start to really think about before you buy something, simplifying those and then i'm challenging you to spend 15% less this month. then you normally would. i already
7:52 am
started. i canceled my hulu. a hulu live subscription. i'm just going to go back to the basic. >> hulu, which is like $7 a month as opposed to who lives like $65 a month or something like that. so i've already taken that away. i've i the burden of it yesterday when i went to go look at it and it's now, you know, not i don't have the live options. that was kind of, you know, a little sad. but i think after that, you know, a week or so, i won't really notice too next to and then i don't know if you've heard of the blood. mister money mustache. it's a great blog. >> for its all about money and how to get off of debt debt, powered treadmill. so that's a great resource. all right. i will look at it. mister money mustache. that's a good okay. so simple. find your meals. that kind of goes hand-in-hand with simplifying your pantry right? right, right. so try and simplify your cooking your recipes. look for recipes that
7:53 am
are when pot one pan recipes. thanks, ed. up may only have 5 ingredients because you spend less time the kitchen. you have more time to do other things and and then think about a multi cooker because a multi cooker is like a pressure cooker, a rice cooker and a slow cooker all in one. yeah. so that could also simplify your space in the kitchen. if you get a multi cookbook or and you can get rid all those other things. okay. final thing because they were running out of time here. but you did today simplify your workouts for people who want to exercise a little bit more. right. so so think about in order to do this. you need to exercise smarter, not harder. start to include more compound exercises compound exercises, work. multiple muscle groups. so you want to do you know you want to be very efficient. very. these are very functional exercises. things like squats and lunges. they work multiple muscle groups and you could combine
7:54 am
them with other things, too. like a sqpat with a bicep curl overhead pressed and then you can also the cardio with your a compound exercises may jumping jack with a squat which makes laura a squat. get up still just just start getting really creative. because that will shorten your workout. you'll they'll be more high intensity and you're not going to have these long workouts that can make a very tired and you could lose motivation to definitely. and that's not what we want. karen, thank you so much for helping us simplify our lives this morning. you're welcome. we'll be right back. still

8:48 am
oaths at the space is empty put something on it. put a picture on it are put a planned on it. do something with it. but trying to refrain from filling empty spaces because empty spaces can actually be a gateway to peace and trout. tranquility. the brain likes organization. it doesn't like letter and you will actually possibly sleep better if your room is not uncluttered. really? just because your brain is not to looking at so many things before it goes to bed kind of like, yes, it likes it, likes organizations. so if your room is totally disorganized clothes everywhere than it's time to refocus and clean up your room. haha timing very important. okay. next is simplifying your wardrobe. this is something i need help with because i feel like every time i try to do this and with bags of clothes that then just sit on the floor that i'm like and to get rid of this, but haven't had time to take it out. but you're saying that that's something we've got to
8:49 am
do. yes, and just trying pare down your war, joe, to things that you really feel comfortable in or things that you really love and just get rid of all the others. you know, if you don't like to do laundry, you know, and just just try not to just accumulate a lot of close. it's just gets very cluttered. and again, you're suffocating in your stuff. so would you suggest maybe if you're you if you end up buying something, maybe getting rid of something in place of the new. piece of something like, that's a that's a great idea. and actually had a friend that did that with her kids. whenever they got toys. if they got a new toy, they had to get rid of one. so they never had this abundance of clutter like we have down in our >> raj is a very thing to do. yeah, ok and ok, this is for folks who obviously are maybe trying to eat a little less simplifying your pantry.
8:50 am
>> oh, and i recently did this and i found so many expired things in my pantry. so definitely clean out the expired goods, clean out anything that does it. no issues. so maybe the junk food and and also start focusing on and buying foods that are seasonal and local. so, you know, go to your farmers market and and try and get something that's very fresh that that's going to know or she the best. and you consider doing more grocery shopping and picking up at the grocery store. yes, and i started doing that. and i found that i spend less and i don't buy in polls. you know, i don't do any impulse buying. and by just what i need, because i know i can get some the next time versus going to the store and saying, well, i don't know what i'm going to be here next. and just loading at the cart. and what happens is we
8:51 am
waste a lot of food. i mean, general american stowaway a lot of food, mostly produce. so and that's that kind of goes ties into the next thing. the most expensive food you can buy, the ones that you throw away well. and so this next one is simplifying your expenses. and i did this for, you know, al, thank you. i was going to say, you know what my new year's resolution is >> so so this one you don't want to work harder to pay for things that you really don't need. so when you go out and you're thinking about buying something, think about, do i need this or is this just a buy out of convenience? so start to really think about before you buy something, simplifying those i'm challenging you to spend 15% less this month. then you normally would. i already
8:52 am
started. i canceled my hulu of hulu live subscription. i'm just going to go back to the basic. >> hulu, which is like $7 a month as opposed to who lives like $65 a month or something like that. so i've already taken that away. i've i the burden of it yesterday when i went to go look at it and it's now, you know, not i don't have the live options. that was kind of, you know, a little sad. but i think after that, you know, a week or so, i won't really notice too next to and then i don't know if you've heard of the blood. mister money mustache. it's a great blog. for its all about money and how to get off of debt debt, powered treadmill. so that's a great resource. all right. i will look at it. mister money mustache. that's a good okay. so simplifying your meals. that kind of goes hand-in-hand with simplifying your pantry right? right, right. so try and simplify your cooking your recipes.
8:53 am
look for recipes that are one pot. one pan recipes. thanks, ed. up may only have 5 ingredients because you spend less time the kitchen. you have more time to do other things and and then think about a multi cooker because a multi cooker is like a pressure cooker, a rice cooker and a slow cooker all in one. yeah. so that could also simplify your space in the kitchen. if you get a multi cookbook or and you can get rid of all those other things. okay. final because they were running out of time here. but you did today simplify your workouts for people who want to exercise a little bit more. right. so so think about in order to do this. you need to exercise smarter, not harder. could start to include more compound exercises compound exercises, work. multiple muscle groups. so you want to do you know you want to be very efficient. very. these are very functional exercises. things like squats and lunges. they work multiple muscle groups and you could combine
8:54 am
them with other things, too. like a squat with a bicep curl overhead press and then you can also the cardio with your a compound exercises. maybe get jumping jack with the squat, which makes laura a squat down. so just just start getting really creative because that will shorten your workout. you'll they'll be more high intensity and you're not going to have these long workouts that can make a very tired and

9:49 am
better if your room is not uncluttered. really? just because your brain is not to looking at so many things before it goes to bed kind of like, yes, it likes it, likes organizations. so if your room is totally disorganized clothes everywhere than it's time to refocus and clean up your room. haha it's very important okay. next is simplifying your wardrobe. this is something i need help with because i feel like every time i try to do this and with bags of clothes that then just sit on the floor that i'm like and to get rid of this, but haven't had time to take it out. but you're saying that that's something we've got to do. yes, and just trying pare down your war, joe, to things that you really feel comfortable in or things that you really love and just get rid of all the others. you know, if you don't like to do laundry, you know, and just just try not to just accumulate a lot of close. it's just gets very cluttered.
9:50 am
and again, you're suffocating in your stuff. so would you suggest maybe if you're you if you end up buying something, maybe getting rid of something in place of the new. piece of something like, that's a that's a great idea. and actually had a friend that did that with her kids. whenever they got toys. if they got a new toy, they had to get rid of one. so they never had this abundance of clutter like we have down in our >> raj is a very thing to do. yeah, ok and ok, this is for folks who obviously are maybe trying to eat a little less simplifying your pantry. >> oh, and i recently did this and i found so many expired things in my pantry. so definitely clean out the expired goods, clean out anything that does it. no issues. so maybe the junk food and and also start focusing on and buying foods that are seasonal and local. so, you
9:51 am
know, go to your farmers market and and try and get something that's very fresh that that's going to know or she the best. and you consider doing more grocery shopping and picking up at the grocery store. yes, and i started doing that. and i found that i spend less and i don't buy in polls. you know, i don't do any impulse buying. and by just what i need, because i know i can get some the next time versus going to the store and saying, well, i don't know what i'm going to be here next. and just loading at the cart. and what happens is we waste a lot of food. i mean, general american stowaway a lot of food, mostly produce. so and that's that kind of goes ties into the next thing. the most expensive food you can buy, the ones that you throw away well. and so this next one is simplifying your expenses. and i did this for, you know, al, thank you. i was
9:52 am
going to say, you know what my new year's resolution is >> so so this one you don't want to work harder to pay for things that you really don't need. so when you go out and you're thinking about buying something, think about, do i need this or is this just a buy out of convenience? so start to really think about before you buy something, simplifying those i'm challenging you to spend 15% less this month. then you normally would. i already started. i canceled my hulu of hulu live subscription. i'm just going to go back to the basic. >> hulu, which is like $7 a month as opposed to who lives like $65 a month or something like that. so i've already taken that away. i've i the burden of it yesterday when i went to go look at it and it's now, you know, not i don't have the live options. that was kind of, you know, a little sad. but i think after
9:53 am
that, you know, a week or so, i won't really notice too next to and then i don't know if you've heard of the blood. mister money mustache. it's a great blog. for its all about money and how to get off of debt debt, powered treadmill. so that's a great resource. all right. i will look at it. mister money muitache. that's a good okay. so simple. find your meals. that kind of goes hand-in-hand with simplifying your pantry right? right, right. so try and simplify your cooking your recipes. look for recipes that are one pot. one pan recipes. thanks, ed. up may only have 5 ingredients because you spend less time the kitchen. you have more time to do other things and and then think about a multi cooker because a multi cooker is like a pressure cooker, a rice cooker and a slow cooker all in one. yeah. so that could also simplify your space in the
9:54 am
kitchen. if you get a multi cookbook or and you can get rid of all those other things. okay. final because they were running out of time here. but you did today simplify your workouts for people who want to exercise a little bit more. right. so so think about in order to do this. you need to exercise smarter, not harder. could start to include more compound exercises compound exercises, work. multiple muscle groups. so you want to do you know you want to be very efficient. very. these are very functional exercises. things like squats and lunges. they work multiple muscle groups and you could combine them with other things, too. like a squat with a bicep curl overhead press and then you can also the cardio with your a compound exercises. maybe get jumping jack with the squat, which makes laura a squat so just just start getting really creative because that will shorten your
9:55 am
workout. you'll they'll be more high intensity and you're not going to have these long workouts that can make a very tired and you could lose motivation to definitely. and that's not what we want. karen, thank you so much for helping us simplify our lives this morning. you're welcome. we'll be right back. chase first banking. a debit card for kids, and a set of tools to help them learn good money habits. by creating allowances and assigning chores,
