GREEN, MONEY-SAV­ING TIPS

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Al­ways write down what you have in the freezer to make plan­ning eas­ier

If you can’t make things your­self buy one thing at a time

Have a bud­get for fresh items and buy them a week be­fore Christ­mas Day

Buy canned and packet items bit by bit in the weeks lead­ing up to Christ­mas Day rather than at the last minute

Ask friends and fam­ily to con­trib­ute with items they al­ready have at home

Make sure noth­ing goes to waste: ‘‘If you’re go­ing to eat fish or meat you have to re­spect it, you have to make the most out of it,’’ Julie Craig says.
