…. here are some comments from people already seeing the difference a ‘Pig Tits’ attitude can make to the grocery bill….

I think what you are doing is amazing and wish I had discovered you years ago

I am very conscious about the chemicals, cost and wastage in products used in everyday life, so I try to minimise what we use in our home, and you have provided a great solution to making this process easy and for me to eliminate even more house hold chemicals. Just fantastic!

My parcel arrived yesterday and the book has been read cover to cover, towels are flapping on the line after being washed in your laundry sample and am looking forward to washing my hair in the morning!

I’ll be handing this book on to my son and his young family for sure.

Thank you very much for the inspiration.

Many thanks for your fabulous book you have improved our lives 10 fold!

I recently bought your book Well done, it is a great asset. 

I love this book. I have been sharing the recipes all around my friends. They too now have books . I’m a convert. thanks so much.

 I got my mum to buy me your book for my birthday it was on my list of must have’s 🙂 Just finished reading it and I love it, Great Ideas and definitely most of what ill be changing my families habits into doing. Im looking forward to seeing how much money we can save seeing as we are already on a tight budget we hardly put anything more then 5dollars away a week but on this pig tits journey im sure we will manage to put away alot more so thankyou so much for doing what you do and being an inspiration to others 🙂

I wash my hair, clean my teeth, wash our clothes, do my house work , all using your recipes AND IM 71yrs. Thank you so much.

I have just got your book in the mail, I ordered it online and its amazing. I have already begun making changes to keep the cost down as we are struggling a little while husband finds new employment. Now I want the vinegar and baking soda books..

I found your book in a remote part of Aussie  All the way over in little Karratha!! I was rather excited!!

“Jill is laughing all the way to the bank today. Just finished the week’s grocery shopping: $38.10 in total. My meat bill for this week was $2. LOVE IT!!!!!”

“awesum book first book I have read cover to cover in years should be a must in schools from Intermediate age up so that the have a great foundation to start life out in the big world, this book is a must buy.”

Thanks to inspiration from my daughter and Lyn at www.pigtitsandparsleysauce.co.nz, my grocery bill has dived to less than $100 every week for the last three weeks. I’m loving the new challenges and the new lifestyle…

Well done Lyn. I am absolutely loving my new lifestyle. My grocery bill has been cut by 2/3, I am using Lyn’s shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, deodorant, cleaning products and great ideas. I have downsized my rubbish collection bin to the small size and I couldn’t be more content. (Except that I can’t wait for some other products to run out so that I can use my new ones!)

Hey Lyn, thankyou for your inspiration… i have now done away with all the chemical cleaners in my home and currently using Baking Soda and Vinegar..
My groceries also have been really reduced from approx $300 pw to $100 -$150pw.

$180 spent on shopping this week. My goal is $150. Amazing how different my shopping is getting. Mainly fruit/veges/meat. I bought my first 10kg bag of Potatoes $4.99 at countdown this week. I am enjoying the Pig Tits and Parsley sauce challenge.
For a long time I have bought all kinds of different products to clean the glass doors on our shower box(white skum stain inherited from last occupier) those products never really work no matter how hard I scrub with them….yesterday armed with my white vinegar & baking soda, I tackled it……wow, clearest & cleanest it’s ever looked 🙂 Thanks for the brilliant ideas 🙂
Today we received our copy of “Pig Tits and Parsley Sauce”. I have been very excited to read Lyn Websters book. She is a real inspiration in being able to bring her families food $ down to an amazing amount and also produce a lot of the everyday items we might buy at the supermarket.

  1. Really enjoying the challenge of reducing spending at the supermarket, and its easier than I thought it would be. Baking soda and vinegar are my new best friends, haha.
    Has anyone else found that problems with dandruff have disappeared with the use baking soda and vinegar as hair cleanser and conditioner? And the shower is a pleasure to clean now too. One question…where can I buy washing soda crystals – PaknSave had them once, and I can’t find any in Kaitaia now?

    • Hi Jenny – I have always seen washing soda crystals at Pak n Save in the laundry aisle in a purple box.
      If they are out of stock maybe ask. If they don’t have it any more (I’d be surprised) but then Bin Inn KeriKeri would be the next place. Do they deliver to Kaitaia?

  2. Hi Lyn, thanks for the details about the washing soda crstals – will look a bit harder when I visit PaknSave next – however I would prefer to buy in bulk so I will do that when I get to Bin Inn Kerikeri or Whangarei one of these days.
    BTW we are telling lots of our friends about you, and your book, and your fabulous living sustainable ideas…
