Three Thirfty Things

My thrifty week had been limited as I actually have spent loads of money, school trips, brownie subs, blooming fidget spinners !

But despite all that I have done the following three thrifty things.

It’s rained this week and tennis has been cancelled so I have made savings., Rather than just pop it back in my purse I immediately transferred it to my savings account.



Began a money diary challenge for the next week. Notitng down what I spend then reflecting back at the end of the week on what I could have done differently
Went for an evening out and just drank water. Had a ball and spent just £1 on parking !



As ever I firmly believe every little bit of money saved is a step in good direction . How’s you week been?


As always, we’d love you to join in with us by sharing what frugal and thrifty things you’ve been up to this week – whether it’s an Instagram picture (#5frugalthings), a blog post or even a video.  Just add your link to the linky at the bottom of this post.

You don’t have to share five things you’ve done, anything thrifty or frugal that you’ve been doing is perfect.

You’re more than welcome to copy and paste the badge above but it would be even better if you could let your readers know that you’re linking up with us by adding a little line to the bottom of your post like this one:

    I do believe that every little bit saved does make a difference. There’s something to be said for balance as well, saving when we can and setting aside funds for needed purchases that’ll make life better. Well done on your thrifty week 🙂

    1. I bought cheaper fruit this week for our weekly shop by going to my local market fruit stall. Both grapes and strawberry where over price from what I would usually pay in supermarket
    2. Was husbands birthday so went to cafe rouge. Checked there website before heading out and got a 30% off voucher and a free mocktail. This saved us over £10 on the bill
    3. I joined my local book club at the libary. It’s a free night out with like minded people and I get a free book every month to read -then bring back
    4.sold a few of my daughter old summer cloths on eBay and money went on husbands birthday meal
    5. Have been entering lots of competitions and have won one free meal at my local American diner. That’s next date night sorted

    Transferring the saved money instead of spending it is definitely a win in my book.

    Money is money at the end of the day hey! I’ve saved some money for a camera, which I think I won’t be buying now, so I’ll be leaving the money in savings.
