Welcome to my new followers Claire and Countryside Tales.
What miserable weather, to put it politely it's been pouring down, so not been able to get out into the garden .
Although there are lots of bits and bobs we need here, we do not believe in wasting money and are always on the look out for a bargain.
My new rug was £99.99 down to £24.99
Being thrifty I decided to cook extra veg and potatoes on Sunday, so we could have a mini microwave roast on Monday. This is something I will be doing more of, saves electric and gives me more time for other things.
On Tuesday we went for a look around the town, there was a really good fruit and veg stall in the town, £1.50 for the tomatoes.
£2.00 for a bag of fruit or veg, I just got this fruit.
Will be paying a weekly visit to the stall.
I have been working out the finances this morning, as I have said before the rent is more, but we can get more food bargains and grow a few things, we won't be using much petrol , the gas, water and electric here are all on meters, I actually like this we can see what we are using and no unexpected bills, and it seems to working out very cheaply so far.
Just a few more things to get here and son needs a few things for uni accomodation, and then it's back to simple, thrifty living.
