So back in January, I said I was going to purchase one thing that improved my home and/or made my life more sustainable.
Last month I bought an ironing cover, which while necessary was not terribly sustainable or exciting.
This month I’ve done two things. The first was planned. Say hello to my new toy!
My slow cooker is great but it’s sort of falling apart and requires some planning. I got a small bonus this month and while I’m doing all sort of sensible savings things with some of it, this was the thing I wanted to buy for me. I also bought a slow cooker lid so I can use it as a slow cooker if I want to. So far I’ve cooked beans in it and made port ragu and yoghurt.
The second thing was more sustainable, because of all the panic buying happening over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been unable to buy sanitary towels. I’m due on about now and flannels are not going to cut it so I bought these and these.
If we are stuck inside for three months, I’m prepared!
I had to check out the links because I’ve never seen sanitary towels before!! Cool!! And I got an Instant Pot for Christmas!! I’m still trying to get used to using it.
It’s weird translating all your usual recipes to instant pot. I often find myself checking out Sarah at Sustainable Cooks (http://sustainablecooks.com) recipes, she knows her stuff!!
I’ll check it out! Chicken seems to be the only thing I’ve been successful at making so far. Oh wait, I made a really good pork loin once too… lol
