Meal Plan Monday: Devon Mama

Welcome to Meal Plan Monday, our weekly feature where we talk all things Meal Plan. This week we have Hayley from Devon Mama writing about what works for her family! I’ve never been the best at meal planning. My mum used to do it and in my head I linked it to constantly eating the same meals; week in, week out. I’d have a rough idea of what I wanted to eat for the week and buy things that I thought would cover me but that was about it. When I moved in with my (now) husband we lived in

Work-Motherhood Balance Secrets

Trying to balance work and motherhood is no easy feat. As a working mum, there are all sorts of factors that play into the transition from being a working professional to being a mum to, eventually, becoming a working mum. Scheduling, exhaustion, still-fluctuating hormones and just wanting to be with your baby can make going back to work a lot tougher than it might seem. In some cases, a career change and finding something more flexible instead of going back to the job you had before maternity leave might come as a better solution. If you are interested in pursuing

Meal Plan Monday: Mummy to Dex

Welcome to Meal Plan Monday, our weekly feature where we talk all things Meal Plan. This week we have Nicola from Mummy to Dex writing about what works for her family! Before our little baba was growing in my belly, we did not meal plan at all. We mainly lived on takeaways and ready meals and I rarely cooked from scratch. More often than not, I would buy blindly in the supermarket and decide on the night what I would cook. I would always forget to get meat out to defrost and when I did remember, I would change my

Meal Plan Monday: Savings for Savvy Mums

Welcome to Meal Plan Monday, our weekly feature where we talk all things Meal Plan. This week I’m handing over to Eleanor from Savings 4 Savvy Mums. To Plan or Not to Plan – That is the Question! It is widely advertised that we should all make meal plans if we want to make savings when it comes to our food bill. However, many of us do not (me included) but why not? Is it the child in us stamping our feet, saying I can do it my way? Is it that we can’t be bothered to think that far

Meal Plan Monday: Edinburgh Life with Kids

Welcome to Meal Plan Monday, our weekly feature where we talk all things Meal Plan. This week I’m handing over to Laura from Edinburgh Life with Kids! I’ve always been a fan of Meal Planning. Through working out what we eat in advance, I’ve found that we save money and end up with a lot less food waste. It also takes away the hassle of thinking what to cook each day – everything is always there ready to go. By heading to the supermarket once a week (instead of everyday) I also save time and energy – which is always a

Meal Plan Monday: Living with a Jude

Welcome to Meal Plan Monday, our weekly feature where we talk all things Meal Plan. This week I’m handing over to Alice from Living with a Jude! My Meal Planning Initiation So, you may have seen last week that I challenged myself to clear the cupboards in a bid to stop wasting food. It dawned on me one day that our kitchen cupboards are always full of food yet I would regularly claim there was nothing available for dinner. I’d then nip down to the shops to buy more even more stuff! I have a habit of food shopping on a daily

Meal Plan Monday – Mummy Times Two

Welcome to Meal Plan Monday, our weekly feature where we talk all things Meal Plan. This week I’m handing over to Victoria from Mummy Times Two! Why Meal Planning Would Not Work For Us The Other Half comes from a family who meal plan, his mum is super organised. As children their meals were planned in advance, the shopping was easy and there were no arguments at the dinner table as everyone knew what to expect. It’s a tempting prospect, and under normal circumstances- if I could ever work my way round my incredibly disorganised mind – one that I would be

Meal Plan Monday with Katykicker

Welcome to Meal Plan Monday, our weekly feature where we talk all things Meal Plan. This week I’m handing over to Katy from Katykicker! I’m a busy working mother of one. I am self employed (yay!) and my husband works 12 hour shifts. This means that we have an unusual routine at times. We have three different types of day. One where my husband is on nights, one where he is on days and one he is not working at all. To try and combat some of the issues that come along with having disorganised days I like to meal
