Women usually gain weight after they get married…at least that’s what I’ve been told…and *ahem* personally experienced.
Is it because we’re finished looking for a man? Get comfortable? Complacent? Become moms?
Or do married women gain weight because they try to keep up with their man at the dinner table?
My experience is the latter.
A very wise woman once told me that once married, women tend to eat the same amount as their husband at dinner because we instinctively fill both plates equally. Although we most likely know we shouldn’t eat the same amount as our husbands, somehow we let it happen and the weight creeps on.
This wise woman gave me some very practical advise: Eat from a smaller salad plate even if your husband eats from a regular dinner plate. That way both plates can be full, neither will feel deprived, and both will eat the appropriate amount for their body size.
Dinner Plates and Contact Lens Cases
Just like filling a plate, we naturally fill other items, like contact lens cases, to the brim without thinking if it’s actually necessary.
In my home, there are two contact lens wearers. That means we have several types of contact cases and go though quite a bit of contact lens solution. What I’ve noticed, is that the person with the larger contact lens case goes through their bottle of solution at almost double the speed of the one using a smaller case.
You see, instead of putting enough solution into the case to cover the contacts each night, both people fill their contact lens case to the top. It’s not intentional. It’s just a habit.
If 1/2 ounce of solution is needed to cover the contact lens but the contact case hold 1 ounce, it’s just natural to fill it up!
Simple Way to Save Money on Contact Lens Solution
If you aren’t the type of person to go into auto mode when taking out contacts, you can train yourself to fill the contact case according to need.
For the rest of us, however, the simplest way I know to save money on contact lens solution is to use less by downsizing our contact lens case. A small contact case means less solution needed…even if you fill it to the brim!
