Five Fabulously Frugal Things I’ve Done This Week – 21st April

What a week it has been! For a change I haven’t managed to schedule this post at least the day before. We have had a really rubbish week. Between my injured eye, having tonsilitis and having to wear a 24 hour blood pressure monitor I’m pretty sad about my health this week. However, just to top that off Daisy had a febrile convulsion on Wednesday which was a terrifying few hours for us. Still, I’m not one to dwell so I’ve been looking forward to thinking about some of the good achievements of the week. This week has been a good one for frugality at least. Here is my Five Fabulously Frugal Things I’ve Done This Week – 21st April post.

Five Fabulously Frugal Things I’ve Done This Week – 14th April

Well this week has had some highs and some lows! The high for me was that we managed to get to the allotment twice. In total about 5-6 hours was spent there and now it is looking so much better. I’ve weeded lots, raised beds have been dug over and lots more. Now we are ready to start planting some more vegetables and I’m feeling really organised. Our allotment is a source of joy for us and it is about more than just growing food. Although that is nice too! This week has been a good one for frugality. Here is my Five Fabulously Frugal Things I’ve Done This Week – 14th April post.

We are just about managing to spin all of the places – just about! This week has been a pretty good one in terms of being frugal and I’m saving up for our holiday in 3 weeks time – can’t wait now.

Five Fabulously Frugal Things I’ve Done This Week – 31st March

We had a lovely holiday last week and this is why I missed taking part in this great linky last week. We just were NOT frugal. Our holiday was wonderful and we spent lots of money on great activities and having fun. I did manage to save us some money on Centerparcs activities with vouchers and savvy shopping at the right time of the day/week. We also picked up a few nice reductions in the supermarket there, so that was nice! Anyway, this week I’ve been back on track with being frugal and here is my Five Fabulously Frugal Things I’ve Done This Week – 31st March post.

Five Fabulously Frugal Things I’ve Done This Week – 17th March

Just three days until we go off on holiday now. This means that our home life is a little on the busy side. Thanks to taking part in this great linky I have been able to keep on track. I’ve been working hard to be frugal, save money and waste less. This has been working really well and I feel really positive about it. Being self-employed, and working from home, can make it hard sometimes. The lure of takeaways, and online shopping, can be high on busy days. Despite this we’ve gone all week without a takeaway and I’ve avoided impulse buys too. Here is my Five Fabulously Frugal Things I’ve Done This Week – 17th March post.
