I have found a recipe for homemade peanut butter,very straightforward apart from the bit where you have to remove the red skin off the nut,Does anyone know any easy way to do it?
I have shelled the monkey nuts but its going to take an age to peal them if i don't find an easier way.
I had a bit of a result today.In the post i had confirmation of my gas and electric going up(after negotiations my gas dd was reduced and my electric increased) so I'm now paying £5 extra a month on both.
Another letter was from the insurance company i have my buildings insurance with,giving me my renewal quote.(its separate from when we lived in a different house whilst repairs were being done) I got a quote for combining which was very good a saving on what i pay now.I then phoned Nat west who i have my contents insurance with to enquiry about either leaving or adding building insurance.Very unhelpful and a fee for leaving(£26) or a fee for adding.
Phoned 1st company back and asked if they could cover the leaving costs and the end result was an either better price £48 a month a saving off about £30.
I know that I'm charged for paying monthly but at the moment that's the only option at the moment.
But all in all a result I'm about £25 a month up now thanks to this reduction.
Its now pouring with rain again( makes a change)
So as i cant do anything in the garden i have been catching up on some blogs one in particular is Sue's
I have gone back to the beginning and its a great read.She has done a few challenges one of which was her spotty jug challenge.She worked out how much she normally spent on groceries got the cash out and anything left over went in her jug to save for her holiday.
Well I'm thinking of doing that.I want to cut back on my grocery spend so I'm going to put £70 in a separate purse and work really hard to reduce it and then any left is going into my saving pot for my woodburner.
So fingers crossed
