    Hey there lovely bunch of people!! I was wondering today, how and when do you do your shopping? I only have three children and I find shopping takes way too much time. I would like more time for relaxing, and so do my kids. Any tips? Thanks for your gorgeous website + ideas.

    Hi there Johanneke!!! Good to hear from you!!! Great question… I would love to say that we don’t shop!!! But we do… but not a lot!!! Our shopping is carefully planned and gets more and more streamlined. We do a big monthly shop and we have pretty much figured out how many packets of rice or tubes of toothpaste or whatever we need for the month. I don’t meal plan exactly but I do know we eat pizza on Saturday, roast dinner for my mom in law on Wednesday… so we eat routinely and shop accordingly. All that goes into the big monthly shop which we do together on a Saturday – usually at lunch time because the shops empty out then. Once a month makes it a bit of a novelty and I always get rewarded with a latte for surviving it!!! Anything else we need the father person grabs on the way home from work. And for little things that we need right now – well my big kids love running errands and often dash to the store for a bottle of milk – because a cow just wouldn’t fit in our yard!!! So during the week I don’t shop at all… and would never dream of “dashing” to the store!!! I have blogged our shopping habits… http://www.se7en.org.za/2009/05/06/se7en-dont-often-shop Hope you are enjoying the sunshine!!!
