A couple of weeks ago I posted about how I’d carried out an audit of my storecupboard and had worked out all the meals I could make without buying anything other than a few fresh items. I wanted to use things up.
I’m managing to keep going with this – tonight we had wraps filled with stir fry quorn chicken, green pepper and onions. I used up some very ripe tomatoes to make salsa and with a bit of salad this made a very satisfying supper.
As I’ve gone through the last two weeks I’ve found that my attitude to avoiding waste and making sure I use things up has changed in a number of areas. I am using up my collection of pens at work – I probably don’t need any more biros for the next two years. I’ve found a sock mine in the washing basket, so we won’t need any more of those for a while. I’ve dug out all the soaps, shower gels and bubble baths I’ve been given as presents and these will all be used up.
What have you got loads of that you are using up? (If that makes sense!)
Until next time, Tawney x
