This week my 5 Thrifty Things has been more about cutting down costs than freebies!
Welcome to the second edition of my 5 Thrifty Things, this week I have been looking at ways to cut down everyday costs after last week’s spectacular freebie haul.
It has been a week of horrifying revelations and generally trying to live off buttons all week.
Here are my 5 Thrifty Things this week!
I finally started to tackle one of my biggest vices, the morning cappuccinos!
I’m not going to lie and say I haven’t been into Costa this week, I have, but only twice, which is a massive improvement.
I picked up some pods to cut my coffee outgoings right down – no more being a coffee mug!
Yellow Ticket Ninja haul
I have worked my way through the freezer all week, creating some really tasty meals with it never costing me more than £1 per head.
And, as per usual, the good folks of South Manchester didn’t let me down this week and I managed to grab a shed load more, all averaging 75% off – winner winner chicken dinner!
PK relieved of washing duties
Since we moved to our new apartment in November, for the first time in our 11 year relationship we decided to have our own designated jobs.
PK was put on clothes washing duty as it is the one the gets on my moobs the most.
Imagine my horror when I discovered him using Ariel liquid tabs, Ariel washing gel AND Lenor in the same wash.
Three products to do exactly the same thing, and this ladies and gents is what I’m dealing with – PK, you’re fired!
I wanted our carpets cleaned and didn’t fancy doing it myself with a bad back.
Sidney the Sony
I estimate he has at least another month left in him, and I like my cheap as chips sim only deal – don’t go breaking my heart Sidney
This week has been all about cutting down costs as much as possible.
Holding out on a new phone and cleaning the carpets myself undoubtedly saved me the most money this week, although my back isn’t thanking me for the latter now!
The 5 Frugal Things linky is definitely helping to focus my attention on things that needed tackling.
I’m linking up with this Cass, Emma and Becky in this week’s ‘Five Fabulously Frugal things I’ve done this week’ linky, so please go and check these guys out too, you will find some amazing ideas to cut down your household costs!
