While the Teenager is away with his dad for the week I'm trying to 'get on with things.' I'm not doing as well as I'd hoped so far. Decluttering and sorting is happening, just not quickly enough!
One thing I am succeeding at is running down my storecupboard and freezers. It certainly makes for interesting meals! Mostly vegetable based I have to say but it's healthy and frugal so win/win.
However, a wee trip to M&S with some vouchers resulted in the above bargains. Can't go wrong with 10p stuff! 7 Fairtrade bananas for 10p with 6 in perfect condition, the 7th slightly bashed. Veg medley will be tonight's meal. I got 3 packs of the Bird's Eye chillies which yielded 33 chillies :-)
I would normally have frozen them but even I couldn't use that many in 6 weeks so I searched online to find out how to dry them. Sliced and left to dry on paper towels in my hot conservatory for a few days, they will give me enough dried crushed chillies to keep me going for wee while.
And back to decluttering. This arrived yesterday. I have a huge garage to clear plus a load of garden rubbish. I've offered stuff on Freecycle and local for sale groups. But the lack of response makes me suspect a lot stuff will just go in here and to a furniture recycling charity.
