Simple Summer Fun #5frugalthings

Hi – hope your summer holidays are going really well. It s been so busy here that time has just been running away with me  but we have been having a lot of frugal fun

Heres are a few frugal things we have been up to:


Camping with friends

We spent a lovely weekend camping in Wales with friends, spent nothing at all really except for a bit on food and just really walked and read and hung out with friends. Just absolutely delightful.


Writing in the woods

We had a lovely walk in the woods this week and I gave my daughter and myself a  little writing prompt and we sat writing for a while surrounded by trees. It was so lovely  – precious times.


Simple Summer Fun


Playing games

We played a couple of new to us board games this week and 2 that we all loved included Love Letters and  Carcassone these are definitely going on the kids Christmas list. Board games are a great investment as they give hours and hours of pleasure for just an initial outlay ( if you think of this in comparison to  family trip to the cinema it’s probably cheaper to buy the board game AND you will get hours more entertainment from it)


Prepping for a boot sale

Clutter, clutter everywhere. I have got myself a pile of cardboard boxes and my plans are to be RUTHLESS this weekend and spend a few hours filling those boxes with books and games clothes and bits and bobs so that we have enough for a care boot dale and my home looks better. it is ages since I did a boot sale!



I did some plant pot upcycling last week and I think it turned out just great…would you like a peek?
