Baking and cooking from scratch are important life skills that also offer an opportunity for children to learn by reading, weighing, and making themselves.
This month we made the decision to embark on home educating Gabriel. It now means less time, more fun, and a lot of new ways we need to balance the budget.
Gabe has shot up again and new clothes and shoes made me think about how many buy into disposable fashion, and its environmental and financial impact.
To keep on budget in the New Year it helps making your meat stretch with rumble down meals, or buying cheap cuts of meat and trying offal to reduce costs.
2016 was a far harder year than we anticipated, and financially it kocked us about more than anticipated. 2017 is time to get back on track!
With so much having gone on recently we've really not stuck to budget. Time to get back to meal planning and on track with financial fasting and saving.
We've restarted our frugal fast and are back on track after a chaotic and stressful house move. Back to meal planning and frugality!
We are having to pack up and move in the next couple of months, this will mean down sizing too. We're still making the most of the sunny days though.
Keeping to a budget with family meals and a young family can be hard. Baby-led weaning and breastfeeding helped keep things cheap and healthy for us.
The summer sun has arrived and that has meant lovely afternoons playing in the garden, and the Aga turned off before we boil!
