Week Four – The #OneGrandFamilyChallenge

It also helps to shop at the same store because I know more or less the cost of groceries at Food Lovers Market now so when I plan the meals I can balance out the cost of ingredients through the week. Here is my Meal Plan for Week… Continue reading Week Four – The #OneGrandFamilyChallenge

Week Three Recap of the #OneGrandFamilyChallenge

I can (almost) confidently say that meal planning is now a habit for me. I love having a list of what to cook instead of standing in front of the fridge and tying to come up with a balanced meal every day. Besides saving money, this whole process is really saving me time. If you… Continue reading Week Three Recap of the #OneGrandFamilyChallenge

Does anyone have a time machine I could borrow?

I have had the shittiest five days. Actually, make that ten days. Let me explain.  Our 'family-time week' was taken over by grocery shopping, blog interviews, school drop offs and pick ups, hellish traffic in Fourways (wtf!!a 10 min drive took an hour!!) and car shopping every damn day.

The mirror never lies…
