A frugal few days

I have had a frugal few days this week. Here is how I kept my costs low.

A lovely friend I was excited to catch up on invited me for lunch. I definitely needed a change of scene but fund are low so I suggested we had a cup of tea instead – we still had a fabulous catch-up

I did my tax return and yikes it was more than I thought it would be BUT because I did it I then didn’t buy something I had my eye on so actually it was smart to get it done and saved me in the end.

I went to a craft fair and wanted to support someone there so I actually bought something I immediately earmarked a gift rather than something for me…a money-saving win-win.

I got up especially early one morning and made 6 cards! This is a birthday heavy month for me and  I wanted to save where i could. I thoroughly enjoyed the process too.

I have decided to write a novel – it’s keeping me very entertained and is potentially a money maker in the process.


So what about you…what have you been up to?

    I’ve been writing a novel for over three years, but it will eventually be done. Sometimes the most simple things like a cup of tea with a friend, are the most enjoyable.

    I have a birthday heavy month too. I should get card making! I started a book ( not a novel) three years ago but it’s been on the back burner. Must get on and finish it!
