Easy Ways To Reduce Our Family Waste

One of my aims for 2018 is to reduce our family waste. Watching Blue Planet 2 last year really made me think about the waste our household produces. Sure we recycle what we can and we do have minimal food waste but as a family of five we still produce more waste than I would like. I have been doing a bit of research and have a few easy ways to reduce our family waste that i feel are achievable for us.

Meal Planning Monday #3

Happy Monday! Last week was tough. Barney has been teething and was sleeping like a newborn, i was so tired by the end of the week and my meal plan went to pot. Fingers crossed this week sees more sleep! I did make the Jamie Oliver veg sauce and it made so much, i have enough for four meals stashed in the freezer. I also picked up some reduced bits when i went to the shop midweek,  two family sized pies for 77p and 79p and a couple of packs of pork and apple sausages too. I think i just got there at the right time.

Barney at 21 Months Old

On New Years Eve Barney turned 21 months old. He is changing so quickly at the moment that i wanted to write an update post as it has been three montths. I don't know if it is because he is my last baby or maybe i am getting more sentimental but I am so keen to keep a note of the things he does so I can remember. Like Aerosmith said, i don't wanna miss a thing.

Meal Planning Monday #2

Happy Monday! It was a chilly weekend here in Yorkshire. We woke up to a gorgeous layer of frost this morning, making everything sparkly until lunchtime.  You can tell it has been cold as this weeks meal plan is full of comfort food.

Meal Planning Monday #1

Happy 2018! It has made me weirdly happy that 2018 starts on a Monday this year. New week and new year. How do you spend new years day?  I fancy a walk but the weather looks a bit grim.


I am looking forward to another year of meal planning and reading everyone elses. This up year will mark 8 years since I first started weekly meal planning! In that time we have had three little ones join the family!  If you are new to meal planning, here are five reasons why you should be doing it!
