Oh so depressing lol partly why I wish to get back to work as even if I'm only earning same amount I may get a loan when working I won't on spp
I try and run the washing machine and dishwasher at night to save money (we have solar panels so better to draw from the grid at night rather than our generated power in the day).
I will join too. I can always find ways to spend money, but I am not too bad at saving when I set my mind to it. I have a few bills this month so I need to focus on saving now. marie.
I don't have solar but opt to do washing in off peak periods to save money. I usually set the washing machine to start at about 5:30 to finish around 6:30 (peak rates kick in at 7) if washing during the week. I save any extra loads like linen until the weekend when it's cheaper as well. It probably only makes a slight difference but all adds up in the end I guess.I try and run the washing machine and dishwasher at night to save money (we have solar panels so better to draw from the grid at night rather than our generated power in the day).
I peeked in the freezer before I went shopping and I really didn't have a lot of variety for the boys. So I bought some budget rump steak and minced it up and it into 36 meatballs and 25 mini sausages rolls. First time I've made puff pastry from scratch. It never ceases to amaze how simple things are to cook that I seem to think will be tricky! I've also got a bit of cream to use up. I'm going to make some of it into butter and buttermilk and I've found a recipe for a cream cake. I don't often make cakes so will be a nice treat. Not much sugar in it either .. Win!
