The Meal Planning Linky Week #29 Meal Plan

Meal planning is something that I have really come to love in recent months. Meal planning helps us avoid buying takeaways, helps us to eat healthier meals and has become an important part of my organisational week. Being able to look at a meal plan, and choose what we are going to eat, takes some of the stress away from our day. Today I’m sharing the Meal Planning Linky Week #29. This linky is hosted by myself, Katykicker, and Naomi from The Organised Life Project. We both LOVE meal planning and want to invite you to join us in sharing your meal plan and keeping motivated.

Saving for the future with a JISA from Wealthsimple

Being a parent is so challenging at times. Emotionally, physically and financially. From the day our daughter was born, back in March 2016, we started a savings fund for her. Each month, when Thomas gets paid, we put away a small fixed sum of money for Daisy. This just comes out automatically, and moves to a savings account, and is basically painless. We don’t miss the money, and it goes before we allocate our money to bills, savings and spends. It isn’t a vast sum but it soon adds up and Daisy is already into the early thousands with her savings, just from these small amounts. Recently I have been thinking about the long-term, and the best way to grow Daisy’s money, for her future, without having to increase the amount of money that we are saving.
