The Meal Planning Linky Week #37 Meal Plan

Having an organised life has become really important to my family in recent months. With me working on building up my online business and illness in our family we’ve got lots going on. By meal planning we are able to cut down on takeaways, eat healthier meals and take advantage of special offers at the supermarket to save money. 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.

Quick wins to help your car pass its MOT

Running a car is an expensive business. Even though I’m not a fan of driving myself I help my husband with contributions towards his car. The main reason for this is because he drives me around, anywhere I want to go, and I never have to pay towards petrol or insurance. Recently our car had £750 of repairs (ouch!) and in just a few months we have the MOT coming up again! Today I want to talk to you about quick wins to help your car pass its MOT. These are little things that you can do yourself or have done cheaply elsewhere, to try to help your car pass its MOT.

Now there is no guarantee that there won’t be larger work that needs doing to your car, but if you know you’re going to be forced to pay for repairs, as you can’t afford a new car, then these steps may help you reduce the overall cost of any work come MOT time.

The Meal Planning Linky Week #36 Meal Plan

I’m a BIG fan of meal planning! Being able to save money, and avoid takeaways is great for our waistline and our budget too. For us, the main area where we go wrong with eating healthy is not planning dinners and not meal planning before we go shopping. Since we have become more motivated and begun meal planning, we feel more organised at home and we are eating healthier too.
