Bethenny's new book, "Skinnygirl Solutions," has some great tips to help you organize your life. If you think you need help to control your impulse buying, these tips are for you.
Bethenny's advice on controlling impulse buying asks 5 simple questions:
- Do I need this?
- Do I already have something similar to this?
- How much am I willing to spend?
- How many times will I wear this?
- Do I have 3 things in my closet right now that will match this?
If you can't answer all of those questions, then you shouldn't buy whatever you're currently thinking about buying. Now, we're not saying that you shouldn't indulge, but these tips will help you curb buying when you don't really need something.
Do you have a lot of items with tags in your closet? Share them with us for a chance to play Rip It or Return It on "bethenny"!

Pajama Parties. Love 'em or hate 'em, some of your best childhood memories probably involve one or more of them, but unlike most things you did as a child, you don't have to give these up! In fact, adult pajama parties are even more fun!
All girlfriend events require a snack or two. Why not try the healthy spinach and artichoke dip that Joey Fatone made with Bethenny? No sleepover is complete without brownies and whipped cream! For more recipes, check-out Bethenny's Pajama Party Recipe Round-up!
We love to play "Would You Ever?" and have created a "Would You Ever? Girls' Night In" edition for you to play a home! You can also play Dish It or Do It with Skinnygirl Cocktails bottles like Loni and Bethenny did on her birthday! Prank calls to "the boys" is always fun too - Joey called his friend (and former N'Sync bandmate) Lance Bass with Bethenny and it was quite fun!

There's only so much time to prep for Thanksgiving. With work, kids and all the other things you juggle on a daily basis, Bethenny thinks it's important to remember that the holiday is about enjoying the people as much as the food so she has created a list that will help you determine which things should be store-bought and which should be real.Shutterstock.com
- Mashed potatoes that you change up with some herbs (or try Bethenny's rustic mashed potatoes)
- Sweet potatoes, like Bethenny's healthy sweet potato souffle
- Green beens (try Bethenny's favorite recipe)
- Stuffing (Bethenny's favorite Thanksgiving dish and a recipe she says is her best!)
Remember not to stress over the meal. Indulge, make it healthy and enjoy your family: the holidays only happen once a year!Read More »

Make the season come alive by adding seasonal holiday décor to your home! It's easy to spice things up with just a few simple touches. Plus, you can get the dinner conversation started by discussing how you created such a wonderful table setting.facebook.com/LettysLemonadeStand
Kids' Table Paper Tablecloth
This simple idea is great if you are expecting to have a kids' table at your Thanksgiving celebration. Use what you have and put down some butcher-block paper as the "tablecloth." Provide crayons or markers for the kids to draw with on the paper. For a fun game, have them outline their hands and create hand turkey drawings.

This is a great activity for kids to be outdoors and to bring the beautiful colors of fall to your table. Search outdoors or at your local craft store for some medium to large-sized colorful leaves. (Make sure they are not so dry that they crumble at the slightest movement.) Simply wrap them around a rolled-up napkin, take some col

Tionna Smalls shares her bedroom etiquette tips and offers some advice.
Before you jump into your clean and fresh sheets, take a shower. Maybe use some lavender scented body-wash or other calming scents to "clean the day away." Take a few minutes to de-stress; you'll be much happier for it and you'll be able to sleep better!
Wake Up and Brush Your Teeth
If your man sleeps over, get up and brush your teeth first! Tionna says it's okay if he wakes up first, it's not a big deal but if you get up first, it's important to keep yourself together. Joey said once you're married, it doesn't matter!
Keep your comfy pajamas for the nights when you're on your own. If your man is sleeping over, wear some cute and sexy pajamas, like Daisy Llewyllen's tips to find great pajamas for you!

Steve shares his advice with Mary Jo (who has been single since her divorce nine years ago) on how to meet a man and how to change her life:
Hire a matchmaker.
Make a life change or relocate to change your patterns.
Go to different places to eat, workout, shop and be positive when you're there. You'll meet different people in different places.
Remain eternally young. Age is only a number if you act young, you'll feel young.
If you feel awkward asking a guy out, make a suggestion. Instead of asking a guy out, say, "There's a great coffee shop around the corner, we should check it out."
Some people prefer to communicate via text or via the phone, and men don't usually know. It's the woman's responsibility to let the guy know what you want.
After you make a suggestion, you set an expectation. So, if you say, "Let me give you my card," then you should follow up with, "Why don't you call me later in the week to set something up"
Where do you meet people? How have...Read More »
