    Tracking Salt, Sugar And The Like

    This is a pretty simple idea, but it has worked for me. On Jan 14 I measured out 1/2 cup of salt into my salt shaker, on 1/25 it was gone, so about 2 tsp/day. On 1/21 I measured out 1 cup of sugar, on 1/26 it was gone so about 3 TBS = 36g per day. x quarts of milk or oj every y days is similar.
