Tip of the week

Freeze and plan your meals!!

This month has been a bit of a tight squeeze so to save money I have started to plan my meals and freeze them into seperate pots. Meaning I dont have to bother cooking through the week,I save money and instead of choosing fat filled take aways Im eating a healthy meal every day...and as a result loosing weight! Happy Days :)

Choose a simple dish like pasta, veg and sauce (see recipe of the week), lasagne, chilli etc cook it up seperate it inot 7 plastic tubs with lids ( £1 for eight poundland)  and freeze. Take it out the freezer in the morning and microwave for 4-5 mins when defrosted or 7-8 if frozen.

Pack whatever you cook full of veg to bulk it out and to get those extra vitamins for energy, clear skin and shiny healthy hair.

It might sound like alot of hassle but you will thank me throughout the week when you cant be bothered to cook aand have saven those extra pounds towards a night out or a nice bottle of bubbly :)

happy cooking

Thought of the week

Time for thought of the week

Hours without smoking : 11 hours 50 mins

The End of The Month

So Its the end of the month....I'm skint as per usual I have about three pence to my name. Its looking pretty pants although I have decided to take this opportunity to take a new look on my finances and life style. I am a newly single lady and I have just settled into a new job at a well known fashion boutique and life is, well its on the up! Time for positivity, self indulgence, friendship, nights out and off course shopping!!
Every week I will post a new review, thought of the week, money saving tip, and recipe for lazy girls on a budget.
My new intention is to save money, although still life the high life with my friends.....lets see what happens ! :)
