My money-saving week

Let me tell you about my money-saving week – I have been trying uber hard to save money in every way possible recently and Christmas is very much on my mind.

1. I went to the Shomos (the money bloggers awards and conference) in London this past weekend. I love a magazine on a train journey but instead, I downloaded a film for free from Netflix on my iPad and avoided spending on magazines. A small win but satisfying. A £3 saving

2. I also encouraged my other half to collect me from the station rather than getting a taxi even though this meant waiting a small while- always worth it. A £6 saving

3. I have seen no less than 3 friends for a quick coffee this week. This would normally cost me parking and a coffee shop coffee but instead, I invited them to mine, saving me at least £12

4.  I  accepted some extra work this week which I really didn’t have time for and just got up earlier at 5 instead of 6. It all helps  – making an extra £150

5. I avoided the shops as far as possible and got my OH to get the bread and milk we needed it.  He is far more focused than me and doesn’t get shopping happy as I do. Saving £10

So a good week of savings and some useful extra money made. Oh am I have been thinking about making my own Christmas decs have a peek her  for my tips for making a festive wreath

    My husband is exactly the same, if he has a list he won’t deviate. He’s much better than me! Yesterday I spotted some baklava from Aldi and the box fell into my basket because a few friends had recommended – we didn’t think much to it! The SHOMO’s sound amazing, I really would love to go next year! Hope you have a lovely week x

    Oh I’m right there with you on the magazine front! I love reading them but all of the good ones are so pricey, and filled with ads half the time! I’m sure my love of blogs initially came from looking for something free to read actually 🙂

    Hello! Loving reading all your frugal living activities and adding ideas to my own life. I had to mention rb digital app. It lets you read current magazines for free on your device. If your library supports it you use your library membership number to activate. Completely free and about 50 mags to choose from. I had given up magazines so it was a fantastic discovery! Kx
