It is out there!

I decided, can’t remember why, to have a professional cleaning service in to do my house while my full time domestic is away.  Best decision I ever made! Good service – it’s out there! In November I contacted and booked with a company called Sweep South after I saw their advert on Facebook. I booked […]

I can’t manage without it, can you?

I don’t know how I did it? Oh, wait I didn’t! In March 2015 I started making menu and meal plans for the month and not only did my grocery bill drop but so did my weight!  In the past if I cooked, it was whatever I could stick in an oven because I was […]

How did you do?

As I said last week, for the month of November I will be reviewing my menu plan and seeing how it was followed. Each week I will look from Thursday to Wednesday. Recipes for the different dishes can be found on the blog and a weekly and monthly menu planner can also be found there. http://kasheringyourlife.co.za/index.php/printables/monthly-menu-planner-and-shopping-list/ and […]

Where do you start?

If you look at how you grew up and how your parents grew up, you will notice that you and your kids have far more ‘things’ than in previous generations, yet technology is supposed to simplify all of this. We live on credit, so buying goodies and gadgets is easy. I know my father had […]

Everybody does it!

I know I do it and my mother does it! In fact, I think most people do it when they are planning big events like birthday parties, year end functions, just about any event where you will have 10 or more people in attendance. Restaurants do it or they go out of business! I am so excited. […]
