I thought I would share a little about the cash envelope system, including the how and the why for you here on my blog. A little back story as to how I stumbled on this system for budgeting. I say I stumbled onto this system because it was all pre wifi and I had no idea about the Dave Ramsey system, which has helped thousands of our American cousins get out of debt across the pond!
When I had my eldest, I was in my early twenties and pretty much penny-less! We were living in social housing and receiving income support. Back then child maintenance was only £10 per week, and I had an undiagnosed Asperger’s child with sensory issues. So, making money stretch to coverContinue reading
These little buns of hidden veggie goodness have been a life saver on more than one occasion. Savoury muffins came about after my eldest decided to have an aversion to pretty much all food groups except meat and cake. So I threw my hat of ingenuity on, did a little research, tweaked and practiced making these little munchables.

We left home around midday on the Friday, so we could miss the main rushContinue reading
It’s been a while since I posted on here. Life has been full on, yet again and I have pulled everything right back in order to protect my mental health. The first things to go were social media apps, which is scary when you primarily use them for sharing blog and business-related posts! To be honest it has made me super aware of how many hours I have previously lost to mindless scrolling, and well I don’t know if I want to go back.
It is always in the back of my mind to take photos, think about content, keep the algorithm happy, share every single day even if you have nothing to say. I wasn’t aware how much it had been eating at my mentalContinue reading
