This and That

January 18th, 2013 at 08:36 am

Bought a four-weekly bus ticket for 73.50. Hubby paid for half since we are sharing it. I've been driving my car as little as possible since I know something is wrong with it, but I am getting rid of it this month. One of the drawbacks of getting the bus is that I end up shopping while I'm waiting. Keep spending two-three pounds when I'm at work. On the plus side though, our cupboards have more staple items in them now since I have been finding things reduced e.g taco seasoning for 40p. I also found some Christmas decorations for 50p so they have been put away in our Christmas box.

Still not managed to find any snowflakes but I am not giving up.

Meal planning has stopped since I have been back at work, although I really need to organise it again. Hubby has been pulling his weight in the kitchen now so things are a bit better on that front.

    Yikes! with DH willing to pull his weight in the kitchen it's crucial to have a supportive meal plan that works together with his effort. The fastest, simple plan is to write 5 basic meals that you both like to eat. Ovr the weekend write out another 5 meals. Make it simple like roast a chicken or chicken parts plus some root vegetables in the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle with any all purpose, no salt 'Adobe' type seasoning 350F 176C

    Hope you get the meal planning back under way...it does help with the budget.

    That can be tough when you are waiting for the bus, definitely, and it can lead me to spend unexpectedly as well. I think that if you are getting things for a good deal, though, that offer you some insurance of a fuller pantry, then maybe just count those funds from the grocery budget? Good luck...
