I have been a huge fan of Frugal Family’s regular Five Frugal Things series. Each week I have a read to see the little and not so little things that Cass and the family do to save money each week. It also gets me thinking about how I have saved money or how I can in the future weeks. Therefore Cass, Becky and I decided to turn this feature into a weekly linky. The three of us have very similar values and approaches to money saving. We like to live well as cheaply as possible. That means finding a great deal, upcycling something and stretching things out. However we do not go without. We like good things but we like the satisfaction of a bargain!
Here are my Five Fabulously Frugal Things I’ve Done This Week
- I arrived at Tesco at 7pm between dropping Dylan to football training and Chloe to hockey training. The massively reduced food was just being wheeled out and I picked up these fruit pots for just 10p each. They are ideal snacking pots for us all plus the kids like them for school.
- Lee spent the last day of the school holidays talking to Sky on the phone. After haggling for quite a while he was able to upgrade our Sky channels and get an overall price reduction! He got a great deal after persevering with the phone call.
- We bought Look magazine for £1 just to get the 20% off V by Very because we wanted some clothes from there!
- Our local Morrisons has had a refit and to please their customers during the slightly disorganised shop refit they gave out a free hot drink voucher with every sale. Over the course of the week I collected three vouchers and the children and I went after school for a free hot chocolate each instead of heading to our normal weekly treat at Costa. This easily saved me about £10!
