Oh, what a fabulous week I have had this week! My book Create Your Own Happy that I co wrote with Penny Alexander has been published and has shot up the Amazon charts. It si full of thrifty and fun and simple ways to boost kids happiness so that has to be my first frugal thing.
Next, my kids went back to school and we have decided packed lunches work out cheaper for us and that the kids will mostly walk to school as the buses are pricey! Small savings always add up!
Then well we wanted to launch our a new book with a celebratory blogger lunch and we wanted to treat our local blogger friends. In the end, we decided to self-cater rather than book a restaurant so I just cooked up pizza and some salad bits and we had a lovely meal and hours of crafting and chatting and it was much cosier and informal and inexpensive than eating out
We also wanted to find a way to spread our create your own happy message that was fun and inclusive of as many people as possible so we snail mailed and gave out 100 painted stones around the Uk. YOu can have a look at her to find out more about our Happiness Rocks project
and the last but not least we gobble up the leftovers (because I always over cater) and had these for tea and lunch the next day. Oh I love having leftovers and not having to look it feels such a treat!
How was you week thrifty friends?
