My Winter Financial Manifesto

If you follow my other blogs ( and, you will no that I am not keen on making resolutions at the beginning of the year.

I make a manifesto each season and I thought that it was high time that I made some personal financial ones too.

From Pininterest

  1. Continue to make out meals from scratch and as frugally as possible by meal planning
  2. Make sure that I reduce the amount of waste that we throw out, both food and packaging
  3. To use the library instead of buying books
  4. To start make a planting plan for our raised beds in the garden
  5. To start decluttering the house, with a box for bin, charity and sell and make sure I sell the items.
I would love to hear your manifesto for the winter season.

Please leave a link in the comments below.


  1. I'm definitely going for the decluttering one. Going to be ruthless with each room and get on Ebay asap!

  2. I will just echo all of yours as they are totally the same as mine - such an effort to sort all the clutter!

  3. Sounds good to me! My decluttering is going well, the only problem is that I haven't had a chance to sell things yet so it's accumulating in the loft (out of sight, out of mind).

  4. I'm also going through a major declutter, very slowly - I seem to be generating quite a mess though, so I love the decluttering boxes idea!

Bissell Vac and Steam Machine Review and Giveaway

I have hard floors downstairs which I love.  They are much more practical than carpet with 2 mucky boys and a dog. Over the past 8 years I have tried all sorts of ways to keep them clean and I think I have finally found the product that does that for me. It is the  Bissell Vac and Steam Machine .  This amazing suel action machine vacuums and steam cleans either independently or at the same time.  It means that I have done away with my vacuum and steam cleaner downstairs (which I gave to my brother in law). What I like: You can either vacuum or steam clean or do both It is lightweight and easy to manoeuvre The handle is adjustable great for a home with people of different heights and for getting the kids involved. You need no chemicals The pads are washable and reusable It comes with a two year guarantee It warms up fast (within 30 seconds) so no long wait to start cleaning It costs under £100 It is space saving.  No need for a separate vacuum, steam cleaner or mop. 

Tissue paper poppy badges

Remembrance Sunday will soon be upon us and my boys take part in the annual church service and march as Beavers. This year MadDad will also be marching in his capacity as Manager of the U7's football team.  We are great believers in remembering what people have done for us and the boys have been busy making tissue paper poppies at Beavers.
