First, the food – growing our own little plants this winter has been fun and educational. My favorite meal we made so far was the greens on top of naan bread brushed with olive oil, sprinkled garlic, and broiled with mozzarella then greens on top and balsamic vinaigrette. I’m getting hungry remembering it… And look how much it’s grown from our first update?? Here’s the VÄXER line we’re using…
Our LAGOM workshop was to make draft excluders. Emy was able to do one with scraps of fabric and tying it – no sewing needed! Though once at home she also sewed up one for our conservatory door which has really helped. Though I’ll admit we made one draft excluder that turned out to be jumbo sized (my fault entirely) and we ended up cutting it into two pieces – which the children then claimed for couch pillows, as you can see with the picture of J lounging happily in a pile-o-pillows. But I think that absolutely counts as LAGOM since it was recycled materials and making our room more cozy!
This year I started a bullet journal (which I love) and on it I have “*Inventory the closet” which is where the storage bags are… I’ve just not gotten around to it yet but rest assured if it’s in the bullet journal I will do it. 😀 Here’s the HADJEBY line.
The pantry we redid with FILUR containers and I think they are wonderful. Issues with those are that the lids can pop off easily which means when little ones grab them and they’re full of something like, oh… flour? It can get a bit messy. But apart from them, they are so helpful for storage and I feel like we’ve stayed on top of our pantry much better. I can tell we’re wasting less and more aware of what we have to rotate and use up and that feels great! This photo is from last winter and is a work in progress but you can see what the bins look like and how much space they can free up for you.
So, that’s our mid-project update and we’re excited about our next workshop coming up to learn about Growing in Small Spaces!
