My year-round 40-item capsule wardrobe (that is not just neutrals and basics)

I’ve been dressing using a capsule wardrobe for almost a decade now. I don’t think I even knew what a capsule wardrobe was at the time to be honest. I just new I wanted to have less clothes and a wardrobe that was easier to get dressed with.
I have never got rid of any items or done a declutter. What I did instead was to stop buying! And to use what I already had, but in a more organised way. When I started I had 5 suitcases full of clothes. Right now, I have only 1 and a small bag of shoes. This way of doing it takes longer, but I find it more sustainable and also helps me save money.

Simple customisable groceries list to suit all budgets

Facing a massive store full of food can be daunting. Or you might have to deal with the opposite: a limited selection of ingredients. In both situations you might end up spending more than you planned for or you might end up not buying everything you needed. And in most cases, you will spend more than you wanted and also forget things.
You need to go shopping with a game plan in place. You don’t necessarily need an extremely detailed shopping list or even a meal plan, but you do need to have some idea of what you’re going to get.

Hope you enjoy this little collection of daffodils.

The benefits of living through the seasons

Living through the seasons is what all our ancestors used to do. Depending on the weather, the food available would change and their activities would change as well. With most people living in cities and having a somewhat stable routine throughout the year, following the seasons is not common anymore, other than changing your wardrobe and turning on or off your heating and cooling systems. But, there are benefits to following the seasonal changes as they come even if you live a traditional 21st century lifestyle.
I live in the South of the UK where we have 4 very distinct seasons. When I talk about summer, autumn, winter and spring, I am mostly referring to those as they exist here. But that doesn’t mean that what I am writing about here can’t be applied to other places with hotter or warmer weather, as long as you adapt things to your particular climate and the specific rhythms that come from it.

30 fun ideas for outdoor activities during staycations (or when you just need to get out of your house)

Staycations have been getting more and more popular as people want to save money or have shorter breaks.
But even if you don’t take those into consideration, staycations are a great way to slow down and appreciate what we have available right next to us. Not every beautiful place and interesting visit requires a trip on a plane or hours of driving.

The single best way to get fresh food is to grow it. This is great if you have a homestead, or a live in a farm, or your house has a massive garden. A bit harder if you live in a flat or have a very small garden.
Even so, there are still quite a few things that can be grown indoors without using a lot of space. All that you need is a few pots, a sunny windowsill, and a bit of patience.
