37 to go…….

Our first ever supermarket-free shop

Our first ever supermarket-free shop

Including today we have just 38 days left of our challenge. That means we are 327 days in, or 89% of the way there, Amazing!

Sometimes living without supermarkets is a bit inconvenient, but not really that hard, you just need to adapt how you think and remember when the market is on, what time the local shops shut and getting to know what you can pick up from where.

What is difficult is writing blog posts every day.  When we started our Year we decided that we were going to blog every day, and didn’t really think too much about it, but 345 posts and (a guestimated) 150,000 words later we feel that we have just about run out of interesting things to write about. No longer can we glance around and have inspiration slap us in the face, some days (such as today, if you had not already guessed it) are a real struggle.

The Quillow we made for the Make Do and Menders

Our friends at My Make Do and Mend Year have recently finished their year of blogging every day, and are taking a well earned rest, we are not at all jealous. Don’t get us wrong  we love living without the supermarkets, and we do love the fact that we have kept the blog up for almost a whole year so far, but we are looking forward to the day when we are not under (stupid self-imposed) pressure to blog every day, and hopefully we can share things that are actually interesting, as opposed to post like this slightly off-piste ramble. We have written a lot of posts and a lot of words, and we wanted to say thank you to all of you who have read all or some of them, from the recipes to the rants to the rambles, it makes us feel like there is a point to what we are doing!

So………..another post down, another 366 words added to the eye-watering word count, and just 37 more posts to go.

Seen as we were moaning about lacking inspiration we thought we would come up with a little competition, leave us a comment with the number 1 topic you would like us to write about and the winner gets…………………………..their requested post written and published next Saturday!!
