Hello Dear Reader,
Today I thought I would tell you what we DON'T buy, I try and live a frugal, simple life and part of this is not buying all the "stuff" that is advertised each week in the supermarkets. I have written about buying some "good food" specials that are sometimes in supermarket catalogues, but alas, most of the foods advertised isn't what we eat, so we simply don't buy them.
As you will see from the list, I limit the amount of single use throw away items and household cleaners, doing this alone, saves us a fortune.
Household items we don't buy
Paper plates and cutlery
|Cloth Napkins instead of Paper|
|As I use up a cleaner I am replacing it with a homemade version|
|Homemade Shower Cleaner|
Food items we don't buy
Instant Porridge mix
Bread and Bread mix
Soft Drink (except in Summer, we buy Soda water, to make Cordial)
|Home Made Light Rye Bread and Fruit and Spice Loaves|
|Homemade White Bread Rolls|
|Lemon and Blueberry Cake made for Easter|
|Seafood Sauce with a bit of a kick|
|Homemade Seed and Nut Crackers|
|Homemade Caramelised Garlic Hummus|
So, tell me, what DON'T you buy? And what do you make that is so much better than shop bought?
