STOP-tober 6th: Snippets

Today I'm joining in with Saturday Snippets on Making It Up as well as continuing my STOP-tober Challenge with Mortgage Free In Three. No need to explain, you'll pick it up as you go along.

[Trying] not to eat my way through the entire store cupboard all in one night. It's meant to save me money by supplementing our food throughout the week/month/year. This is the flip side of buying and storing. It's called eating and eating.

[Inspired] by this store cupboard home by Allegra at Theory Of Boots.

[Wondering] how to up my own store cupboard practice.

[Succeeding] in sticking to the STOP-tober budget so far. I've spent nothing since the supermarket shop last Thursday. Really, absolutely nothing.

[Procrastinating] with fb and blogging when I should be working. On the other hand, it's almost 9pm - why should I be working after teaching for six hours straight today?

[Tired]. See above.

[Waiting] for one little girl to fall asleep so I can go in and switch off her little light. - I think she may be asleep actually but don't want to risk going to look in case she's not yet.

[Reading] Caitlin Moran's How To Be A Woman and finding it hilarious. I'm surprised at myself as I don't usually like too much description about sex and other bodily functions.


Just because we're not arts and craftsy, doesn't mean we're not creative. We just prefer clean creativity.


  1. I love these. What is the collage made out of? I'm not good with mess either. And I'm off to check out the stoptober challenge.

  2. They're fridge magnets. We have acquired numbers, letters and shapes. These are the shapes on a tin tray.

    1. Thank you. I'm enjoying it - I must be in the zone or something ;).

  4. There is a lot to be said for clean creativity :) BTW, I collect fridge magnets :D

    1. Hi Allegra, I 'm glad you found your link back. I love your story about the water pipes provoking a complete lifestyle change.

  5. I really enjoyed How to be a Woman too - really, really funny. I need to really budget for only one weekly shop too. X

    1. I'm still near the beginning but I've already found out that I am a feminist after all!
