Five Fabulously Frugal Things I’ve Done This Week – 13th January

Being frugal is a fantastic way to save money for your household. Money saving is nearly as important to me as money making. By keeping a tight control on our household finances (mostly) and our expenses we have more money. This means that I need to earn less money to cover the essentials. In turn this means more money for saving for a house, having a holiday or buying a reliable car. The little savings really do add up and this is why I like the Five Fabulously Frugal Things I’ve Done This Week linky.

Some of them might be small but they soon add up! These are the Five Fabulously Frugal Things I’ve Done This Week…

  • Made a stuffed crust pizza. This was delicious, cheap and it kept us away from the takeaway. I topped it with chicken breast, peppers, spring onions and too much cheese. The dough rose spectacularly and the crust was HUGE! I made this using my Panasonic SD2501 bread maker which I absolutely love. This saved a small fortune compared to the takeaway that I really wanted!
