Thrifty Thursday – 11th September

If you follow this blog regularly then you will know that we have just had a massive change in this household… my baby boy has started school. The week so far has been a blur of  picking up, dropping off and trying to be organised and failing miserably.

What does this have to do with being thrifty I hear you ask? Well I was shocked about how much all of the school uniform was going to cost us and I was feeling annoyed that there was no option other than to pay the silly prices that they were asking for. That was until someone told me about the second hand uniform sale that the parents of the school arrange.

I managed to get H two jumpers and they cost me £3.50 each much better than the £12.50 each that they were going to cost me if I brought them new. I also got him a few pairs of school trousers and a couple of shirts for a fraction of the price that they would have cost me. Everything was in great condition and hardly even looked worn. So as you can probably guess I was one happy mummy.

Thrifty Thursday – 5th September

This weeks #ThriftyThursday is going to be a quick one from me as we are still on holiday and finding anywhere with internet is proving to be a bit of a challenge.

We are away in our caravan with friends and the sun is shining so all is good here. I’m currently sat in the soft play area of the campsite while the kiddies run riot around me. Everyone has had a lovely time so far and we even managed to do a bit of foraging…

holiday foraging

There is a massive blackberry bush right by our pitch so the kiddies keep dissapearing for a bit and coming back with purple juice all around their faces. Hmmm wonder what they have been up to? We have a constant supply of blackberries here so the kiddies have been enjoying them mixed with yoghurt for their pudding.

The best blackberries that we have found so far though were in Asda car park of all places although we did get some strange looks from fellow shoppers as we stopped to strip the bushes of their fruits.

That’s all for this week I’m afraid but I can’t wait to read your thrifty posts for the week.
