1.On Monday we went to a local farm. They have an offer on this week, so we got in for half price. It was a treat and the kids absolutely loved it!
2.The car insurance we have for both our cars was up for renewal. I spent a couple of hours one evening going through all the online quotes, and I’ve managed to find some that are cheaper than last year, by about 20%! NEVER just accept the renewal price you are given, always shop around, its really pays.
3.I made a huge vegetable chilli today. It should last us a couple of days and then I’ll freeze it for future meals. My two small ones liked it, and it also got a thumbs up from the husband!
4.I needed a new snowsuit for my daughter. My friend was selling a Boden one, so I managed to get it for less than 1/4 of what they are new, plus it’s in brilliant condition. I’ll sell it on when I’ve finished with it and probably make back at least half of what I paid for it.
5.Another mystery shopper assignment completed, and I’ve got 4 set up for this coming week. Easy money! I use Market Force.
Those were my 5 frugal things from this week. My husband is going from weekly to monthly pay soon, so this week will be his last pay for a couple of weeks! Money is going to be tight for a while so I’ll have to be extra frugal, I’ll be checking out everyone else’s blog posts for this linky, to get some ideas!
