Each week I do a large food shop, put all the shopping away and then promptly forget what I have in the back of the fridge.
That’s now changing. I refuse to throw food away because I’ve forgotten it’s there, it’s gone out of date or I changed my mind on what I wanted to eat.
So for the past 2 weeks I have organised myself better and my meal planning has worked.
I’ve just refilled my fridge and I’ve thrown NO food away!!
That’s amazing for me.
I’ve done it with the aid of Post-it Super Sticky Notes from 3M.
The left row is the days of the week, the 2 top say Lunch and Dinner, then I’ve meal planned our week on Post-it Notes adding the expiry dates of the main ingredients of the meals (i.e the lamb joint, chicken for the pie, pizza etc)
By having these on the post-it notes I can switch around the meals if I don’t fancy something on a set day but still keep track of the expiry date and eat the food before it goes bad.

As previously mentioned in my teachers gift ideas post – there will be a Taxi covered in Post-it Super Sticky Notes driven around London on Thursday 18th July.
If you happen to be in London do take a look – the post-it notes are covered in details which were filled in using the facebook app and 6 post-it’s will be plucked from the Taxi with the winners winning a holiday and 5 runners up winning £100 shopping vouchers. Post-it’s are super sticky and they will have stayed attached to the Taxi all day!
You can enter this competition up until Midnight on 16th July – Good Luck
