Foraging is a fun and useful hobby to have. You get to spend time in nature, learn about how plants, and you get free food out of it too.
I have been learning about foraging for several years with my children, but I am still far from being an expert! These are just some of the main things you need to know before you set on your first foraging adventure.
Make sure you check local foraging resources before you head out and eat anything.
Even though it may seem to be a skill that should come naturally, being on top of money is not easy.
There is a lot involved when it comes to managing a budget, spending within your means, and saving.
While I am far from an expert in these matters, my husband and I have managed to support a family on a low income while avoiding debt and being able to enjoy some ‘luxuries’.
There are some tools and gadgets that you just need in the kitchen if you want to do something beyond a bowl of instant noodles.
This is my list of the most important ones, and some nice extra tools to have when you have the money and space.
Not everyone homeschools, but if you are currently doing it or even considering it, money is always in everyone’s mind. Homeschooling can get extremely expensive, or it can be very affordable depending on your choices. No matter which way you go, there are always ways to reduce costs.
I am a big fan of using what you already have and making the most of all the local offerings. These are a way to make home education more sustainable, affordable and connect with the local environment and people.
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.
This is mostly a collection of resources that those interested in zero waste and low waste fashion can use to get started and start their research.
Resources for zero and low waste fashion are scarce and hard to find so if these are topics you are interested in, bookmark this page because I will be adding more as I come across new information and people who work in this area.
