Pledges - Happy Cleaning & Menu Planning

So the Personal Pledge begins ... I will make and use my own house-hold cleaners.
You understand the problem has never been with the "making" of the cleaners but with the "using" of the stuff ... housework, me !

The main players - bulk buy of Bicarb ( thats another pledge well and truly sorted - bulk buying ) some Dr.Bronner's magic soap, lemons and tea-tree essential oil.
Need to get some white vinegar.

And then the books, cause with me it's always about the books ....

Clean House, Clean Planet by Karen Logan
Better Basics for the Home by Annie Berthold-Bond
and for that bit of sparkle ...
The Magical Household by Scott Cunningham and David Harrington.

I have to add that I did already have these on the bookshelf ( just needed a quick dust off ! )

So, kitchen floor ( ceramic tiles ) washed with warm water, some bicarb and tea-tree oil ... came up a treat and smells wonderful,now off for a cup of tea and to read the books.

Pledge - Menu Planning and shopping accordingly - after a look in the cupboards, fridge and freezer, have decided shopping is not needed this week ( apart from some milk and cereal this morning at the co-op )
We will have a "use it up" week.

Tonights Tea - Pesto Pasta and Salad.
