Make a Free Personalised Autumn Family Favourites Poster…. It's been a while since I shared an idea for something to make with our FREE personalised poster maker so today, as I'm sat here contemplating the fact that we're almost halfway through October, I thought I'd share an idea for an Autumn Family Favourites poster.
What Is The Instant Pot Pressure Cooker For starters, the Instant Pot Pressure Cooker or Instapot is, it's a modern version of a pressure cooker. As a devout slow cooker user-I've got three of them-plus a regular rice cooker user, I'm not sure if I need an Instant Pot for pressure cooking.

One in five people splurge even more, half their spare cash, in that two days.
Friday Five - Thirteen I'm not going to pretend we haven't spent money, because we have, we ate lunch out on Monday and I have just bought two dresses from Seasalt. There have been a few low spend moments though. I've paused the next veg box delivery.
Homemade dog biscuits I have made these before and wanted to store them in a jar for a month. Once baked, they were dehydrated to harden them off. Unfortunately, I decided to adapt the recipe this time and in doing so, forgot to add yeast, to help them rise. Hopefully Ruby will be able to crunch her way through them.

Sonia went to a homecoming dance with her cousins, and that left Zoe home with Mr.
How I Started Investing How I started investing has been one of the most requested posts on this site, especially by people who follow me on social media sites. I think the interest comes from my dividend income posts, which are starting to prove that slow and steady might just win the race!
Craft shopping On Monday we visited Hobbycraft. I perused the shelves for extra things I needed then went off to find DB who was window shopping. I looked down into my basket and saw a book in it. "Have you bought a book", I asked him, "No" he replied. Further investigation revealed it wasn't my basket, it was full of quilting and sewing stuff.
Advantages and Limits of Budgeting Budgeting always makes me feel like I am going without something or sacrificing. It's like dieting with dollars instead of calories. No matter how much of a positive spin I try to put on the concept of budgeting, it's basically a form of self-restriction.
'Iconic' Clock Makeover…. If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen me asking for some advice on what to do with the bookshelf that I have at the end of my upstairs hallway. Basically, this little bookcase was a gift from Mr Frugal who saw it advertised as being sold by someone local after they'd upcycled it using my favourite Orla Kiely wallpaper.

Nectarine and raspberry jam I had hoped to make 'flat' peach and raspberry jam but couldn't find any of those strange flat peaches. Anyhow, 4 nectarines were substituted.
