This week was supposed to be a little calmer, a little less hectic and a chance to catch up. Yet that is not exactly what has happened. Chloe’s little car broke down on Monday morning which has meant that I have been doing the school run again. I have also had yet another trip to A&E as Dyl took a fall and unfortunately the tarmac won. Another week of fun in my life!
However turning my attention to being frugal I have managed a few things.
- Firstly rather than pay for daily bus fares for Chloe and Dyl I have been driving them to school. It is much cheaper but more time consuming. I don’t mind for a week but it would not be a long term solution for us as the time is too precious to me.
- I have written about money saving ways to bring light into your home in this post
- Last week we didn’t do a big shop, instead I have been eating out of the freezer and cupboards. It is a good idea every few months to really look at what you have as many of us have a few weeks meals in the freezer.
- Last week I listed some bits on Ebay including a Nintendo DS3 which is practically unused in the cupboard. I was really surprised that it sold for just over £100. It has got me thinking about what else I have in cupboards that could potentially be worth money.
