Over the last couple of weeks I have been rumaging in the freezer and pulling out basically "free" dinners.
These have been made up of the single portions (leftovers) of things that I have previously frozen, and now there are enough to make a family portion when combined; add in some fresh veggies and maybe a carb and dinner for four at very little cost.
My aim over the next few weeks is to continue on this vein and empty the freezer for defrosting so that any excess summer produce I get can be frozen ready for winter use.
Tomorrow is Tom's 14 birthday. Where has the time gone!!
Anyways he asked for clothes or the cash to buy said clothes.
So in true savings fashion, we set to looking on Ebay as BNWT labelled clothes can be snapped up at way less than shop prices.
He has worked out how much he wants to spend on each item and has done the bidding etc; so far snapping up 2 t/shirts for less then half the price he would of paid in town and that is including the postage. Plus I got him to go through www.quidco.com so I get a bit of cashback as well.
