The life I live now is almost incomparable to the life I lived before. The most note-able differences are that I’ve become a mom (and moved a tiny person + a whole pile of tiny person stuff into our home), and I’ve left the working world. (I now work for myself, from my home.)
One of my favorite money saving and time saving tips, (but the one that gets the most eye rolls) is meal planning. It is super simple to do, takes just a short time to create one and will save you not only time but money. Surprisingly more money than you think.
Before we can have an honest conversation about how to stop wasting food, we need to look at some statistics. Did you know that just one quarter of all wasted food could feed the 795 million undernourished people around the world who suffer from hunger (source)?? What about the fact that In the USA, 30-40% of the food supply is wasted, equaling more than 20 pounds of food per person per month (source)?
You can see that I have, in fact, got an organizational system in place under the bathroom sink. I’ve implemented some of the best and most popular tricks around, like making use of the upward space with shelves and buying cute little baskets from the dollar store (sarcasm? Even I can’t tell…). And you can see that I have totally ignored that system and piled crap anywhere and everywhere under the sink where crap would fit.
~ I’m on a new adventure with the Squishy Baby, figuring out this mommy thing one day at a time. Raising little people while keeping our homes and finances under control might be a challenge, but it’s one I’m excited to tackle… and I want to encourage you to tackle it too.
