Imagine being sent to IKEA with a £300 voucher and a personal shopper, well that’s exactly what happened to me last month!
I know it’s been a while since I’ve last written a blog post, but only because I have been super busy with university deadlines, I haven’t forgotten and have some exciting stuff coming soon, don’t worry!
The shopping trip was part of the Live Lagom project which I am taking part in and loving so far! Linda the Belfast Lagom leader and I set off on our shop with 3 main aims
- Reduce turning on heating– Although my flat is small, there is a large window which creates a breeze, the floor is also always cold which means the heating is almost never off
- Improve my Recycling- I currently recycle however only have a small bin which means I end up putting items in the normal bin to save time emptying it *shame on me*
- Reduce Food waste- At the end of each week I throw out a crazy amount of food due to expiry dates or no way of storing, this is not only a waste of food but money too!
