::Waste Free Lunch Savings::

::Waste Free Lunch Savings::

With Plastic Free July almost upon us, I think it's a good time to share with you my own family journey with Waste Free Lunches and how my own frustration ended up helping create a popular product that now helps other families reduce their waste. 

So, we started our plastic-free waste journey about 5 years ago after I'd read about it on an Australian eco blog, it was a great way to focus my frustrations about wasteful packaging and helped find some really good savings.

We find the majority of the family waste comes from food packaging, so let's look at our waste-free lunch story and I'll show you how easy being waste-free can be and how you can save some serious cash!

Travelling with kids- Our 10 Rules of travelling with offspring!

Travelling with kids- Our 10 Rules of travelling with offspring!

It occurs to me that we travel with our kids a lot more than most.  I never really thought about it until I talked to a lady while in Whanganui on our recent 10 day roadie.  It was our second to last day.  She was amazed at what we'd done in just 9 days, AND that I was beaming about it. She says she can't even drive 3 hours without her kids going bonkers.  

So, it seems to me there might be some nuggets of wisdom I can share that have become second nature and have grown from many trials and errors!
