More Stuff Out, Some Cash In

April 27th, 2015 at 04:41 pm

I sold a few more things on FB, and donated others today. I'm happy to have all of them leave my house!

Since I've been home I've rather unconsciously changed how I do meals, buying fewer things, and making a more concerted effort to use things up. I honestly think it comes from having a smaller fridge in London. My DH loves a really full fridge, but I have a hard time finding things and like a more pared-down selection. I'm happy with it, and I've heard no complaints from the eaters in the household. We've slowly been working our way through our freezer stocks as well. I'd like to empty the fridge freezer and clean it and the chest freezer. On that note, we had Trader Joe's frozen croissants this morning! Not very punishing is it?

Because I went to the university to do a teaching observation this morning, I got a bunch of errands tackled on the way home. Tomorrow's tasks include starting a serious look at our net worth. That will help us talk more about a move.

    I maintain a pretty spare fridge (as you can imagine, buying only ten items a week!) But I have what I need and I don't waste. I, too, like to be able to look in the fridge and see what's there, instead of a jumble!

    Completely agree, CB. Unbelievable as it may seem, there were eight open bottles of salad dressing in the fridge when I got home. I've successfully used up four--some as marinades, others as intended, but three really seems the maximum we need. Perhaps there's a study on this? One Italian, one creamy, one something else?
