A week today Master Frugal’s birthday party will be over 😉 We are having it at the local Wacky Warehouse and I’m a bit stressed at the minute because I have no clue how many children are going to turn up yet. We’ve sent out invitations to 20 children but only 10 have replied so far. Why do parents think it’s OK to not bother replying to an invitation and just turn up!
So at the minute my nightmare is going either one of two ways. Either hardly anyone turns up and Master Frugal is sad or everyone turns up without telling me, so the food isn’t ordered for them and not enough! You would think I would have bigger things to worry about wouldn’t you.
Like, for example, the fact that the money I had set aside to pay for his birthday has just been spent on new tyres for the car…. Last year for Miss Frugal’s party I set myself a birthday party challenge to make some money to pay for her party so I thought I had better do a mini birthday party challeng to help me out with paying for next week.
- I have some of the kids unwanted clothes to list on ebay – not many but some of them are Miss Frugal’s party dresses that she is too big for so I might get a few quid for them.
- I’m going to try and earn some cash for gold by selling my old jewellery – I have a few old bracelets, two odd earrings and Mr Frugal has an old gold signet ring that is so bent out of shape it won’t go on his finger anymore.
- We have an old mobile phone that we don’t use anymore so I think I’ll try and sell that with one of those companies who you post it off to.
- I’m also trying to psyche myself up to do a car boot sale on Sunday, although the problem with the one here is you have to be there by half eleven and you can’t leave till four. By the time you take into account loading the car and unloading it at the end of the day it’s the whole day gone.
I’ll let you know how I get on….
