My thrifty hard-working week

My thrifty hard-working week

Lots of thriftiness here this week ….

I got some gorgeous tulips for £1 ( Mothers day leftovers in the co-op)

I got a lovely plant for  75p  (More Mothers day leftovers)

I got a complete suit for my sone (trousers/tie./shirt and jacket brand new from Amazon for £25 – a huge saving on what I was about to spend at Next!)

I have worked like a ninja and earned more this half of the month than I normally would in a month. I have worked this hard because I am aware I have a book to write by May 18th – gulp, and I need to carve up some free non-usual work time. If you haven’t heard my BIG  news here it is…

I have resisted buying new Spring clothes despite being very tempted ad I am slimming and don’t want to waste my money on a too big size.


Little things but they all add up!
