    1. The smaller plates idea is a great one, Phil — one of those, “I can’t believe this would actually work” ideas. Tired of Being Youngest is a culinary student, and she “Plates Up” our food, taking a small amount of actual food and presenting it in such a way that you feel like you’re eating more.

      Thank you for the book recommendation — I truly believe that people can turn their financial lives around, and my book gets them to ask the questions and find the answers that work.
