As one of my goals this year is to make more money, I got thinking this week of how I could spend less.  The answer was staring me in the face, as answers generally do once you know the question to ask.  The answer was food.  It’s not that I’m generally not economical – the problem is that I don’t really plan ahead.   I’ll also go out and buy a bunch of fruit and veg. in a bid to eat healthily and then they end up rotting away.

1 cauliflower

half pack of lentils

100 gms ricotta

1/4 pk of rocket

200 gms spaghetti

2 apples

1/4 carton orange juice

Can you spot my good intentions above?  Why isn’t it ever the cookies that go rotten?  I was brought up to hate waste and that list does make me feel guilty.  It’s at least the equivalent of a day’s food which many a hungry mouth would’ve been happy to have.

So, I guess, my goal for next week is less waste more prep.
