I’m a real fan of using my slow cooker. I love nothing more than setting a nice meal up for the day and then coming home, or finishing my work, and it being ready. Slow cookers are super convenient, whether you are going to be home or not. I’ve cooked a wide variety of meals in my slow cooker now and I’m branching out more every week. Recently I decided that I would try making jacket potatoes in the slow cooker – and they were so straightforward!

Pizza dough in the breadmaker – cheap and fun!

My husband and I love a nice takeaway. It is a bit of a weakness really! We have resolved to have less takeaways this year. So far we have cut the amount considerably. This is great for money saving and it is great for our waistline too. We have managed to save money on the takeaways that we do buy, thanks to discounted gift cards from Zeek.
