5 frugal things I did this week (accidentally)

5 frugal things I did this week

Well, this week has been frugal indeed!

frugal things I did this week

We spent Sunday unable to get to food and drink festival as there was a road race and so we just wandered around the old part of our city reading about robin hood and exploring the castle walls. totally free and fabulous.

I veto-ed lunch out too insisting we had food at home needed eating up.

Savings on missing lunch and the event probably close to £80!

I have been so busy with work, the kids’ activities this week of the holidays have been home-based and cost-free in the most part – they have been playing music/board games/crafting and reading with stuff we already have. Nothing wrong with a bit of downtime and just the realities of life as a work at home mum.

I was all set to go school clothes shopping for my son this week when I realised he doesn’t actually need anything apart from some new stationery I’m not going to shop until he needs it – not just because of its back to school promo time

Last but not least I have had a massive clothes sort out. I was about to go shopping for me too as I have a few events in the upcoming weeks but actually, I need to save right now and really didn’t want to buy a new outfit. Having a sort out has helped me rediscover some clothes I have barely worn so that’s a great saving too!

It’s the little things isn’t it – they soon all add up!

    My youngest is starting school in September and she’s got a lot of hand me downs – I’m not just buying things because she’s starting school! Benefits of having two same sex children!

    I love sorting out my wardrobe. I don’t buy masses of clothes but I do keep them a long time, so there is always something I have forgotten about. Quite often what I buy is second hand in the first place anyway! I love buying used clothing as I can buy better quality than I could afford new.

    I totally agree about not buying anything for my son until he needs it too. Really didn’t want to fork out for everything when he already has most things that are fine. Stationary shopping it is!
