Bloom & Nora Reusable Sanitary Pads Review

Over a year ago I decided to make the switch from disposable sanitary products to reusable ones in a bid to help reduce my household waste. For anyone that isn’t familiar with reusable pads they work under the same principle as reusable nappies, in that you use them and then you wash them to use again. Granted this isn’t to everyone’s taste but personally I would never switch back to disposables now.  Continue reading “Bloom & Nora Reusable Sanitary Pads Review”

How to Turn Nappies into Rewards with Pampers Club

When my two were younger we seemed to go through an endless amount of nappies each week. There was a point where both of mine were in nappies at the same time and I just seemed to spend my life buying more. Thankfully we are now well past the nappies stage but I recently came across something which I thought would interest parents still in that stage.  Continue reading “How to Turn Nappies into Rewards with Pampers Club”

Thrifty Thursday: June 2016

This week I’m bringing you Thrifty Thursday from the water, hopefully we’re currently somewhere off the Cornwall coast, perhaps Fowey or Falmouth.

Here’s a shot from last years trip, hopefully we are having the same weather as then, it was gorgeous! Continue reading “Thrifty Thursday: June 2016”

Thrifty Thursday – May 2016

I did manage to get some more school uniform bits for the kiddies at the second hand uniform sale which saved me around £60 which I’m pleased about. We’ve been using up our leftovers to save on our weekly food shop but we do that every week. Continue reading “Thrifty Thursday – May 2016”

Thrifty Thursday – April 2016

Welcome to this month’s Thrifty Thursday, is it just me or does it seem like ages ago since the last one? We have been uber thrifty during the Easter holidays, opting to go on lots of free days out rather than spending money. We’ve been on lots of nice walks, built a den in the woods and also started our Spring foraging. I’ll add my wild garlic pesto posts below. Continue reading “Thrifty Thursday – April 2016”

Foraging: Wild Garlic Pesto

One thing that the kiddies and I really enjoy doing together is going on foraging adventures. As it’s Spring at the moment we decided to go on a hunt for some wild garlic with the intention of making a wild garlic pesto. On a recent dog walk we came across a load of wild garlic growing along the bank of a canal so we decided to head back there but this time armed with a bag for our goodies.
