Pinecones and Presents #5frugalthings

All the stress here this week so the speediest of frugal things lists.

Here  we go…5 frugal things I did this week

  1. I spent v little as I am stuck inside studying/working full time agghhhhh
  2. I spent v little as we are eating the food we have got rather than constantly buying more
  3. My hubbys birthday is next week and he wanted an expensive pressie, so rather than fork out for it alone the whole family chipped in #win!
  4. My son had a big book sort out and my daughter now has lots of new books for her holiday. He also found a few he hasn’t read yet in the process so that  save us money too
  5. We have been nature walking and nature crafting with pine cones. All blissfully free.

Ta Da!

    Oh me too. I feel like I’ve had weeks now where I’ve been too busy to spend money. Good for us!

    What a lovely idea for a linky! And well done you on being super frugal this week (birthdays are always hard to keep in budget, right?) Love the pinecone artwork, it’s lovely.

    I have been having a wardrobe tidy up and have rediscovered a few dresses that i had forgotten about so i think that has probably saved me from going out and buying more! Love the idea of getting family to chip in for an expensive birthday pressie – love it! x

    That little squirrel is fantastic! Good luck with your studies – I’m certain you’ll nail it.
