My week

Well not long till Christmas and money is getting really tight around here. Is it the same for you? Rather than getting into debt I am desperately trying to save money where I can. Let me tell you what I have been up to in ‘5 frugal things I did this week.’



  1.  I took just £10 to the school fair. last year , no idea how, I blew £30 on nothing. that was not going to happen this year.
  2. As a freelancer work at home type I get invited out for lots of Christmas coffees. For the sake of my purse and waistline this year I am saying no to all the cakes. it really does make a difference!
  3. I keep thinking oh I’ll just get so and so this or that despite the fact I have already purchased their gifts. To stop me I have typed up a clear list of what I have bought everyone and refer to it each time I am tempted. I have one copy in my purse and one by my desk.
  4. I have done a meal plan for the 2 weeks of Christmas the kids are off school. i hate food waste and this really prevents it.
  5. Last but not least we always like to do some Christmas giving but for various reasons money is tighter this year so our giving consists of a reverse advent box which we have placed a food item in each day and will donate to our local homeless shelter just before Christmas. There is always a way!
