Looking for ways to celebrate Mothers Day in a sustainable fashion, without adding clutter? Let’s face it; we are enticed to purchase more stuff, but how many fluffy slippers, dressing gowns, new toasters and frying pans to make the perfect scrambled eggs does she really need? Do we really need to ramp up our consumption of ‘stuff’ just because it’s Mothers Day, to let her know that we love her? Let’s take a step back from that traditional Mothers Day gift list and rethink.
Put simply, if we have concerns about reducing clutter in our homes and reducing our carbon footprint and the impact of belongings on environment, perhaps our gifts could do with a change of philosophy. Continue reading

Life is too short to be looking for STUFF ~Tanya Lewis
The simply way to sort the good from the bad and ugly is to start small and work one draw or one shelf at a time, do not pull everything out of the wardrobe, linen press or god forbid the garage. The common response from that method is screaming, rocking backwards and forward or people lying in the fetal position. I cannot stress that enough, please start small. Continue reading
Writing a shopping list and meal planning is a great way to reduce food waste, but what if your or freezer is not working at it’s full potential and you are storing things incorrectly no amount of planning it going to reduce the waste.
Did you know Australian’s throw away $8 Billion dollars worth of edible food a year? Scary, considering you don’t have to look far for great tips to help you reduce food waste.
It’s time for me to fess up, I did not write one of these tips, there’s a great resource that you can tap into called Love Food Hate Waste. It does not matter if you are in Australia, UK or Canada you will find your local Love Food Hate Waste site.
Another great way to reduce food waste, is not to throw it away but pair it up with other lonely foods for a perfect match in simple tasty meals, so check this out this link https://www.lovefoodhatewaste.com/
Freezing tips to reduce food waste
- Sauces (that you’ve made to go with rice or pasta) may thicken while they’re in the freezer, simply add extra water if necessary while reheating
- Freeze sauces separately (from the pasta or rice) if possible, as they will generally store for longer
- Milk can sometimes curdle or separate when frozen depending on its fat content. Lower fat milk such as semi or full skimmed milk is likely to freeze most successfully. Don’t worry if it separates – after thawing simply shake the bottle. The same is true for yoghurt; just give it a good stir
- Yoghurt can also be used to make icy-poles if portioned into icy-pole moulds or used to create yoghurt based frozen desserts (e.g. yoghurt ice cream).
- When defrosting bread, take care to remove any ice within the pack, as this can thaw and make the bread soggy
- Trim excess fat from meat before freezing to reduce the risk of rancidity occurring during frozen storage
- High water content vegetables (for example, tomatoes) may be better pureed before freezing
- Some fruits such as apples are better pureed or stewed for jam or pie fillings
- For products that do not freeze well, such as strawberries, pureeing can be ideal. Fruit puree can be used in smoothies, desserts and sauces
The do and dont’s of storage
- Do store mushrooms in a brown paper bag in your fridge crisper. Plastic will make mushrooms ‘sweat’.
- Do move ripe fruit like avocados and stone fruit to the fridge once they’re ripe to slow down further ripening
- Do store soft cheeses in waxed cheese paper or baking paper. Plastic wrap will make the cheese ‘sweat’.
- Don’t store lettuce with melons, apples, pears, or other such (ethylene gas-emitting) fruits as they will cause the lettuce to turn brown.
- Don’t store bread in the fridge as it will dry out and go stale faster.
- Don’t store tomatoes in the fridge as they won’t develop their full flavour.
- Do keep raw meat in a sealed container or wrapped to avoid contamination with other food types such as salads or vegetables.
