How To Use Reusable Baby Wipes Out and About

Making any switch from something which you may have always deemed as convenient to something completely new may seem very daunting and confusing. Of course it does, we are all so used to our lifestyles being made “simple” by large companies and we are programmed to throw things away when they are dirty because it has been drummed into us that germs are bad. So, when we bring in a reusable product, something that can be washed and used over and over again, an item that is as simple as a flannel and water, we for some reason overthink it.

Everything You Need To Know About Using Reusable Wipes

*Affiliate Links

I feel that I have covered so much on cloth/reusable nappies but I haven’t really mentioned our reusable wipes very much. I have touched on them in my other posts but I have just realised that these need a little explaining too as after I posted on my Instastories questions came flooding in. So here is my opinion (because I think you have to work out what works best for you) on everything you need to know about using reusable wipes.

How You Can Do Your Bit For The Environment Without It Breaking The Bank!

There’s no denying that there are now many more eco products on the market and there’s also no denying that we are being told that these are one of the main ways to help the environment but is this truly the case? The answer from me here is mixed. Yes, it is great that we now have alternative options and if you’ve followed me for a while you will know I love a good, useful eco swap. These can most certainly also save you money in the long run but I also fully understand that some cannot invest in them all right away. If you can afford some or build on them over time then that’s great and if you’d like some tips on making this affordable I have previously written about that here. However, I am very aware that there are also many products out there that we don’t all need and I think these are the ones that have almost given being eco a bit of a bad rep in terms of only being possible if you are privileged. I don’t like this view of it because I believe that helping our environment should be and is possible for everybody it’s just that these perhaps aren’t being spoken about as much as the products are being pushed? So here are my ways in which you can do your bit for the environment without breaking the bank…

How A No Buy Year Will Help The Environment

I hadn’t heard of a no buy year until the start of last year when I saw some people announce they were doing it on Instagram, and since having watched their progress plus seen their savings, it’s made me begin to look into this topic a little further. As an eco-conscious person, I loved the idea of people saying no to all of the ‘stuff’ and making do with what they already owned and then I realised that this is exactly what our planet needs – more people choosing to do a no buy year. You see, once you eliminate the extra waste, the non-essential consumerism, the disposables, the need for wanting more, you are helping our environment as well as your own pocket and here’s how…

11 Ways To Save Money This Year

I think 2020 was quite a wake-up call for many of us in terms of the way we live, spend and consume. Having changed our lives to live more sustainably over the last couple of years, my mindset had already begun to change to think about consumerism and last year made us change even further. Due to this, we have saved far more money, we’ve had fewer financial worries and I am finally staying well above my overdraft which has been something I have always had to rely upon. So what can you do to make positive steps towards having a healthier bank balance? Here are my 11 ways that should help you to save money this year…
