Sunday Dinner on a budget

A few people have reached out to me to ask how I manage to make my roast dinners for so little money. So, I am going to base prices for the recipe on today’s prices at Tesco (that is where I shop). The biggest cost with those who want to save money is when theyContinue reading “Sunday Dinner on a budget”

Week I don’t know!

Hello! Hi! It has been quite a while since I updated the blog. I have been posting on my Instagram pretty much daily but I had my third year Uni placement to complete and with Covid that ended up being more complicated that usual. However, I passed with flying colours, I have submitted all ofContinue reading “Week I don’t know!”

Week 13 update: Painting & baking

Another week, another update. Not a large one this time. In my last post I mentioned I had bought paint for the kitchen. Well, tada! Here it is. It was previously boring and white. I spend a lot of time in the kitchen because I enjoy cooking so it is nice to be in aContinue reading “Week 13 update: Painting & baking”

Week 11 short update & Gousto

This is super late! So late that week 12 is coming tomorrow 🤦‍♀️ However, I have just been really busy with the kids off of school for the Easter holidays and Uni deadlines approaching. Week 11 didn’t have anything super fancy going on. I bought some books using Waterstones vouchers and credit I had soContinue reading “Week 11 short update & Gousto”

Week 10 and monthly savings update!

This week just sort of disappeared! I fully intended to write a few posts during the week but, it seems that I missed the boat on that one! oops! Well I would like to say the week was super productive but it wasn’t! I visited B&M twice (for stuff I needed!), collected my order fromContinue reading “Week 10 and monthly savings update!”

Week 9 update: Be kind to yourself!

This week has been another busy one. Deadlines, general family life & just spending time together has taken centre stage this week. No fancy meals this week. For those of you who come here for the food then head to my instagram. I try to update that daily. There might even be some actual cookingContinue reading “Week 9 update: Be kind to yourself!”

Week 8 update: Saving not spending

Yes, I am a day late but yesterday was Mother’s Day in the UK and we were allowed to spend time together in the garden (2 households, 4 adults). I received some lovely gifts from my own children and then I made afternoon tea for my mum and we could have a catch up inContinue reading “Week 8 update: Saving not spending”

On the road to being debt free. Debt and how to tackle it…

Head on is the answer! Burying your head in the sand, binning letters and ignoring phone calls will not help. The letters will still arrive, the phone will still ring, and the debt is probably increasing. I’ve been there. I got out a long time ago but that didn’t mean we still didn’t have debt.Continue reading “On the road to being debt free. Debt and how to tackle it…”

Week 7: Gousto, offers, more food & a confession!

Another Sunday, another post. The last week has been a good week. We’ve enjoyed bike rides, park trips, outdoor movies and as a bonus…there’s only one more week left of home learning! I cannot wait to get back in to a routine. My first botanical babe A&E plant sub box arrived. I bought this offContinue reading “Week 7: Gousto, offers, more food & a confession!”
