I have been a bit AWOL recently as I have and a n enormous work project that has consumed my time but I am pretty much done with it now (will tell you all about it soon) I feel I can begin to be a bit more present/conscious about life again now and look at my finances a bit more closely. Sill even when I am busy I try and make some saves so without further ado here are my saves from this week
I am shopping around for a holiday I have been looking at Sibiu which seems to have some great sale on but I am a bit worried that it will be very busy. Anyone got any thought son this or suggestions?
I have been making homemade icy treats instead of buying them and have lot of lovely ideas if you fancy a go too. I have been blogging about these over at Avant Homes where I write a monthly parenting article do come and have a look here at 3 summer treats your kids will love
Eating from the garden
My daughter loves gardening club at school and has bought her skills home. She has been tending a little veg patch in our garden and it’s bounty has kept us in lettuces and strwberrries for a few weeks now. I love her new hobby!
Oh, I have had so many gifts to buy recently that I have had to get really creative I love reusing packaging and re-gifting where it would be appropriate and nice ! Have alook at my post on ways to ace gift buying on a budget for more ideas
We had been spending way too much and wasting too much again too. Isn’t it sad how quickly these habits resurface when you are busy. So I am going back to grass roots meal planning and using all the money saving grocery tricks I know over the next few weeks to try and pull it back on track. I need to resue my anti-shopping list!
So that’s me just trying to refocus on saving.
