I'm not making any promises to myself this year, just recommendations!
I want to be more thrifty than last year, addressing a number of money saving issues I have...food wastage, electricity consumption and grocery bills are my main concerns. I will be using my slow cooker a lot more for a start and removing as much packet/processed food from my shopping list as possible. Basic home cooking with very few ingredients is fine by me! Also baking is very important this year...not only does Daisy love baking, but it saves money and I know exactly what we're eating.
Another focus for this year is hobbies. We do a lot of fun creative activities and messy play, but I rarely make time for my own hobbies. Over Christmas I have learnt how to do basic crochet stitches with the help of this book...
It's fiddly but I'm learning!
I've also been knitting...
This was my practice piece and now I have started a pattern to make Daisy's dolly a pram blanket...
I think it may take me a while!
I'm not putting any pressure on myself with blogging, but I will share my thrifty ways and creations with you as they happen.
Thank you to all of you who read and left comments in 2014...I hope you'll join me in 2015!
