Thrifty Thursday – Being Thrifty on the Allotment

You may know that we have just got our hands on an allotment space that is in need of some serious love and attention. You can read about what we have achieved so far in my Amateur Allotment Growers post.

One of the main things that we needed on the allotment was a shed for storing fold up seats for our pasty breaks tools but we didn’t want to spend a fortune on a brand new one, so I asked around on Freecyle and Freegle to see if anyone had one that they wanted to get rid of and tah dah…

We got the shed for free from a lovely man in town, all it needed was some new perspex for the windows which only cost us a few pounds. It still amazes me what you can source for free if you have the patience to search around a bit.

As another money saving exercise we labelled up our beds using bits of cut up branches that we smoothed down on one end and wrote on with a pen. This didn’t cost us a penny.

Thrifty ThursdayThrifty Thursday is a monthly linky and a place to share your thrifty posts. It doesn’t matter if they are old or new and can be about anything to do with saving money and being thrifty. Whether it be a post on cutting back on your food shop or your latest thrifty find link it up, I’d love to see it.

    You’re doing so well with your allotment, you’re a real inspiration to me. I will start working on my allotment too next week and I hope to gain some of your enthusiasm!

    1. I just hope that the things that we have planted so far actually grow otherwise it’s a wasted exercise. Fingers crossed it will all go to plan but I think this year will definitely be a case of trial and error.
