Thank you for all the wonderful ideas for gifts for men on Wednesday. Between is all we came up with an amazing list. I have heaps of new ideas that I am going to be able to use. Thank you so much!
Some of the ways I built up the home this week include:
I made a double batch of Miracle Cleaner. Somehow in winter I need the beautiful scent this leaves in the house more than ever.
This will keep me going quite a while.
Being so cold I decided to make Golden Syrup Pudding. True warming comfort food!
This would have to be the easiest most delicious winter dessert ever. The recipe is here.
This brightened up a couple of dark winter evenings!
I used up more from my freezer and reached a point that I could give it a total overhaul. I removed what was left and had a big re arrange. Now it is organised, I know everything that is in there. I can fit much more in. I saved money for a couple of weeks and now I can start to stock up again.
Patsy on A Working Pantry Facebook group has us all working to de clutter and organise each week. I cleaned out a laundry cupboard, re arranged it and to my surprise I now have more storage room and know what to stock up on.
I went to Aldi and bought a large enamel stock pot. I thought I had missed out on these so wasn't even looking but there was one left and in my colour! And marked down! I just love it.
My son in law is mad on Potato Bake. And potatoes were $3 for a huge bag. So I made four potato bakes, two for us and two for Lucy's household. Another good thing on a cold night. They went down well with everyone!
I finished another little top for Harper...
And I think I'm at the 3/4 point with my rug. I am making it single bed size. It keeps me warm as I work on it.
I hope you had a very good week. How did you build up your home, save and get ahead?
Have lovely weekend (and whats left off Friday!)xxx
