My plan for 2012 is to be more organized and not to waste food and try to save money, So after speaking to my husband we have decided that from now on we will not leave buying people birthday presents till the last minute, So if we are out shopping and see something we know someone will like we will buy it then and there and put it away till needed, For example last year we would be out shopping and see a Disney cars car that are son didn't have so we would buy it for him and just give it to him, Now if this happens we will buy it and keep it for his birthday or if his birthday has already been it will go away for Christmas, This will also help us save money as we wont be buying the kids toys for no reason.

With regards to the wasting food normally if we get a chicken whats not eatern on that day just goes in the bin, But now what we will be doing instead is using the left over chicken for a stew or something, This only came to our minds today while we was having a roast chicken for dinner and saw just how much was going to be chucked in the bin, So I spent 15 minutes just peeling the chicken off the bones and put it in a pot ready for tomorrow.

The saving money will be hard for us but we have to do it so while out food shopping I will be looking at all the special offers and see what we can save on them and when it comes to clothes shopping for us and the kids we will shop around and look on the sale rails, Hopefully one day we will be able to save enough money so my husband can visit his dad in texas and of course me and the kids will go to as none of us have ever met him.

I will keep you all updated on how well I'm managing with these
