My thrifty week

I have been shopping at Aldis this week and cooking up a storm with their inexpensive veggies – take a look at my roasted veggie flatbreads here

I  have also been making my cards with Aldi special buy art supplies

I have been talking at a brilliant bloogging conference Blog On and came away with a goody bag packed to the rafters with toys I can squirrel away for Christmas

I watched a Primark haul got clothes envy then completely talked myself into waiting a week before I shop rather than acting on impulse

I  negotiated with my son spending some of his savings on something he really wanted that I could not really afford and we had a great conversation about money and savings.

It has been a good week money wise with savvy shopping, good chats and creativity, I will meet my saving goals!

How’s your week been?

    I like the sound of those flatbreads! It’s good to teach children to understand the value of money when they are young. They need to know that they can’t have everything that they want!
