Well that week whizzed by! This weekend we have lots going on and cannot wait to attend the Summertime Capital Ball with our friends at Vodafone. Last year it was one of our blogging highlights and we can’t wait to go again! Fingers crossed the weather changes and we don’t get too wet!
My Five Fabulously Frugal Things I’ve Done
- As you will know we like popping into Marks and Spencer on a Sunday afternoon at about 3.30 to see if there are any greatly reduced yellow stickers. Usually we get some yummy food. However as we were actually at the checkout queuing to pay the cashier was reducing some plants. not just any plant but huge beautiful orchids. They were originally £30 on offer for £20 and we picked them up for £2!!!! Yes £2 in a lovely planter also. We took two big ones and a small one with a planter in the living rooms colours.
- I am organising the teacher’s gift for the class again this year. We club together and each contribute £5 which gets the teachers a much better gift and something they will really appreciate. This is frugal as it is better value and the teachers gets something they will really treasure.
- I took back some clothes that don’t fit. Now this is something we should all do all the time. But often I forget and then just later charity shop them.
- When the sun was shining I decided it was time to make the toes pretty. I tend to have paid pedicures in the summer but this time I had a home DIY effort and let Erin loose with the varnish. The girl did good too
