Freebie And Bargain Of The Week
A few things this week.
We have been using our vouchers, at the minute it feels lie we're overshopping but we're buying things to last for a few months so I'm planning bargain basement shopping next month to make up for the extra spending*.
I needed a birthday card so went to the cheapy card shop in the town, I used to use the independent one, but it closed last year. I picked up a card for 59p thinking it was a good price then the lady at the counter told me I could pick another four cards and it would only cost me a pound! Fantastic. So I have cards for all the children for the year.
My brother passed the Owen Jones book onto us when he visited last week, we'll both read it so it's very much appreciated.
Dan has been after a bluetooth speaker for ages, we saw one in the sale the other day at the supermarket so he went off and did a bit of research and decided it would be good for his needs. It was £20 which meant even before we'd bought our bread and veg we could use our £4 off £20 voucher. We also went to Booths and used my 86p loyalty card voucher, plus a £1.50 off £10. We also bought 4 packs of part bake ciabatta for 29p each.
Oh and I found a pound coin in my bag.
*I say extra spending, it's the same budget, just more stuff!
