Monthly food shop – 2 Months on

It’s been 2 months since we started doing our main food shop once a month, and honestly it’s been amazing! I don’t know why I didn’t do it before.

5 Frugal things I’ve done this week – 26/11/2017

  1. I managed to get 4 gorgeous books from a local Mum via a Facebook selling site. They were only £1 each, and in mint condition. The kids love them! They were: ‘Peace at Last’, ‘The very hungry Caterpillar’, ‘Peepo’ and ‘The Highway rat’. All classics! 2. I went through our freezer and wrote down everything we had!
