It's been a massively busy week this week and it feels like I haven't had time to do anything, let alone anything frugal but I've had a good think and managed to come up with five.... Five frugal things I've done this week: 1.  Miss Frugal is very particular about the style of her school skirt as she doesn't like it too short (I'm sure that won't last), she doesn't like it too tight and she certainly doesn't want a flarey style as she worries it'll blow up in the wind!  She loves the skirt she has now though so when I saw them on sale this week in New Look, I bought an extra one in her … [Read more...]

Five frugal things I've done this week: 1.  I bought some lovely cushions on sale a few weeks ago from Dunelm Mill.  They were reduced to £2 each and they were so pretty that I bought them intending to use them in my little living room makeover.  As pretty as they were though, they just didn't go with anything else so I gave them to Miss Frugal to use on her bed as she loves girly cushions.  The only problem is that the cushions she has have started taking over her bed so she ends up throwing them all on the floor every night and I end up nagging at her to pick them up again the next day. … [Read more...]
