Back on a budgeting track #5frugalthings

Today – Back on a budgeting track

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

How I got back on a budgeting track


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

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!

Back on a budgeting track with my  Grocery shopping

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!
