How’s your week been?

Has it been thrifty and frugal?

Mine hasn’t! My son is going on a school trip to Italy and oh the things we have had to buy!


thrifty travel tips


However I have been trying to think thrifty where’re possible in my pursuit of buying him all he needs her are 5 thrifty things I have done

I have borrowed rather than bought where possible.
I have tried to find multi tasking products (e.g sun lotion that is also a mosquito repellent
I have downloaded free netflix movies for his journey
I have made him a HUGE pack up so he doesn’t have to spend much at service stations on the way
I have put money for each day in seperate envelopes to help him budget whilst he is away.

Here is to thrifty travelling!

    The separate envelopes for money is a great idea!

    How exciting for him! I hope he has a great time. A big packed lunch for the journey is a great idea!

    Separate money envelopes is a great idea – all too easy for kids to get carried away when left to their own devices!

    I am joining in!! I had quite a good money saving week 🙂
    My kids are past the school trip stage but they always cost quite a bit. It annoyed me that they ‘needed’ things that would never be used again, like waterproof trousers. I don’t think they ever got used!
