In late Autumn I received an email from IKEA asking me what I could change with £300. I was curious to find out more and discovered that they were looking for participants for their Live LAGOM project. The idea behind the project is to show that saving more, wasting less and living healthily can be easy and affordable. I sent off an application to join the project and was delighted to be picked as an ambassador for the 2016 IKEA’s Live LAGOM project.

On 5th November 2016 I attended my  induction session at IKEA’s Glasgow store where we met fellow ambassadors and we introduced to the lovely Ana who is our Live LAGOM Leader.

IKEA will kindly give all the ambassadors £300 worth of their products, as well as providing expert sustainability advice and a personal shopping session.  Over the next 6 – 9 months I’ll be using my carefully chosen products to see if I can try and reduce our energy bills and to see if we can cut down on our food wastage, not that we waste much, but I’d rather not waste any if we can.

I’ll keep you posted on how we get on.
