The Meal Planning Linky Week #108 Meal Plan

Good morning! Happy Friday! What a lovely week we have had. Thomas & I enjoyed a late lunch out. We had great hospital visits for Daisy and a really helpful GP appointment for me too. Overall things seem to be going well, and I can’t believe it is Friday already! I love meal planning and lately I have been really enjoying cooking from scratch a lot more.

Having absolutely minimal food waste is always important to me. I’m making things stretch even further at the moment because we still have so many house jobs to pay for. I am taking steps to make sure we are avoiding overspending on groceries. This week I’m keeping the budget low again, and using lots of Simply Cook recipes this week. *Why not sign up and grab yourself a box for £1? < This is a subscription service so be sure to cancel if you don’t want it to auto-renew.

Likes & Loves January 2020

Hello! I hope January is being kind to you so far. We’ve spent a lot of our month just decorating at home. We have been recovering from the flu. Also, just having our new home to enjoy together has been great. I think I skipped this post last month, as I was so unwell, so I’ve got quite a bit to share with you! Items that were gifted to me for a possible mention within this feature will be clearly marked with a #. Advertorials are clearly marked with AD.

The Meal Planning Linky Week #107 Meal Plan

Good morning! Happy Friday! I’m sorry I’m late with this today – completely forgot what day it is. Whoops!

Recently we’ve been enjoying a Hello Fresh box, as my lovely sister-in-law gave me a code to get one completing free of charge, which was so kind of her! It was great to have different recipes to try out.

How to avoid overspending on your groceries

I’m something of a money lover making my money work as hard as I can. One area where I can always improve is not spending money so frequently and avoiding overspending on every day things. Recently I have been working harder to save money and make the most of the money that I earn. This has meant that we have more available cash for our life together without having to work more. I have lots of ways that I avoid overspending and I’m going to share a few with you today.

Also, I’ve got a Simply Cook meal kit, I’ll share a bit more about that later on!
