Seven Satisfied School Shoe Shoppers

Buying school shoes might not be a big deal for some families, yet when seven pairs of black school shoes are needed, (not forgetting to mention joggers or sports shoes as well), the whole ordeal of trekking from one store to the other and trying on endless pairs of shoes can give any parent a […]

Express “self serve” checkouts ~ love em or hate em?

Grocery shopping, do you love it or hate it?  Perhaps you are not fussed or find it very stressful? Either way, it must be done right?   If you haven’t read about No Excuses shopping experiences then you can do so here. There is also a shopping list that I am happy to email upon request.  […]

For those who know me, I have always used this saying “if you don’t ask, you don’t get” and it is so true. Obviously it takes some courage and a bit of stamina to ask for things. Whether you are speaking to someone face to face or over the phone, business related or personal; asking for things […]

Shopping at Costco

Pantry Organisation

Perhaps some of you would like to know what the inside of my pantry looks like. Pantry organisation and storage is very important, especially when you shop on a 3 monthly basis.  See my shopping lists here.
