I did one of those proper tightwad things yesterday. Dan had scuffed his shoes and there's no way we're buying more yet so I coloured them in with a black Sharpie, polished them and they look fine.
Today should have been another NSD like yesterday but I have ordered a birthday present for Dan. We don't usually exchange Christmas gifts but we generally get each other something when birthday time rolls around. I think it's probably because both of our birthdays are at the start of the year so we have gift cash sloshing around so there's a bit of wiggle room.
I'm going to do some batch cooking today so we can have a cheap week at the end of the month. If I can stash 7 or 8 evening meals then the final shopping trip should be super cheap.
It's all very small and domesticated this week I think.
