Five Fabulously Frugal Things I’ve Done This Week

Welcome to our new weekly post and linky : Five Fabulously Frugal Things I’ve Done This Week

So what have I done this week that is fabulously frugal?

  • I have walked – a lot,  all over the place actually as part of a marathon walk I am doing for the British Heart Foundation. You can read about why here. Needless to say I have realised I love walking its frugal and makes you feel GREAT!
  • I promised my daughter supper out after an evening walk. She fancied a muffin and milk. In a cafe it would have cost me about £3. Instead we popped in the Co-Op and I  bought a carton of milk and a 6 pack of muffins for £1.20 and she ate and drank it on a park bench. Still a treat but MUCH better value.
  • I also made some stick flowers   which will last far longer than real flowers and cost zilch!
  • Lastly I took snacks to tennis lessons form home rather than buying them for the bar there and I took myself water rather than buying a coffee. I saved at least £5!

    Good luck with the marathon walk. We take snacks to swimming lessons too, to avoided spending extra in the expensive vending machine.

    Sounds like you had a pretty healthy as well as frugal week. Well done on all the walking! #5frugalthings
