De stashing the food magazines

If you’re anything like me you collect food magazines… A LOT!

the only problem is that I flip through them once when I get home, put them in the bookshelf and don’t read them again.

I’m in a crazy clean out kinda mood lately (I thought this nesting feeling was ment to end 5.5 months ago when I had bub #3?!? Haha). And I’ve been undecided what to do with these magazines.

Let’s just say this is a small pile of different food magazines I’ve collected but not used…

So this afternoon I’ve sat down and flipped through them all, taken pictures of the recipes I WILL cook and I’ve uploaded them to my relevant pinterest boards (if you don’t know me, I’m pinterest CRAZYYY!). I didn’t want to just cut them out and make up another recipe book that I’ll probably not use for ages either.

This way im still decluttering and minimalising things, getting to keep the recipes I will use without taking up more space and recycling as well.

Another good idea for magazines like this would be to donate them to your local daycare, kindy, school or doctors surgery. These places are always after things like this so they’re not just being wasted.

The post that started it all

I’ve always been mad keen on saving money, whether it be by op-shopping, budgeting well, eating meat free, paying bills in advance, using loyalty cards or making things myself.

im definitley a bargain hunter!

recently I posted on a facebook group im apart of for The Healthy Mummy about getting my groceries for around $250 per fortnight for our family of 5!

The did an article on it (link here: http://www.healthymummy.com/mum-spends-250-groceries-every-fortnight-feed-family-five )

I shared it to my facebook page, more to be able to keep the memory and link of it and got a few comments about starting a blog from it, with hints, tips and ideas to save money.

so here goes! I hope it won’t bore everyone and I hope people get some money saving ideas out of it, whether they’re mums, dads, grandparents or even single and childfree.
