Becoming a Smarter Shopper

We thank Mary Louise Ward for such helpful advice regarding becoming a Smarter Shopper.   Mary Louise will again be visiting Supervalu this Friday.  (S.R.)

Become a Smarter Shopper

On my recent visits to O’Keeffe’s SuperValu I had the pleasure of chatting about smart shopping with lots of lovely Millstreet locals. They were enthusiastic about the Smart Store Cooking food waste initiative, and they were keen to learn ways to improve habits – especially how to become a smarter shopper.

Practical meal planning and reliable shopping lists are probably the two most important steps to becoming a smarter shopper and helping to reduce food waste at home.

When planning meals, always check what you already have and include these items in your meal plan. It’s better to shop often rather than trying to bulk buy for the entire week – your week-long plans will often change and food goes to waste. To make life easier, you could assume you will cook a number of your family favourites every week. Meal planning is kept simple, especially if you can stock up with regular store cupboard essentials.

Keep a single shopping list within easy reach, and add to it as you think of the ingredients you will need or run out of. [read more …] “Becoming a Smarter Shopper”

Permitted Chairs and Stools for Papal Mass in Phoenix Park

It has been brought to our attention that there is an impression that neither stools nor chairs may be taken into the Phoenix Park for Sunday’s Papal Mass.  This is incorrect.  The Garda Website illustrates which type of seating is allowed to be brought to the special event.  This is how the permitted and non-permitted seating is illustrated on Garda Website where the green ticks signify permitted seating at Phoenix Park.  Click on the image to enlarge.  (S.R.)  :
