Having No Spend January and Frugal February just means that some things hadn't been replaced for a while which turns into big-spend-at-Asda in March! Then with family here too and buying edibles for small people, food for a family lunch, gifts for the baby shower, gluten free for DIL's sister and finding several things on my list were on offer so I doubled up, I nearly fell over at the till when it headed toward the £90 mark!
Oh well - it still works out cheaper than having a giant Indian Takeaway and spending that much is a very, very, rare occurrence nowadays.
I did use my last Asda price check voucher and remembered the car park £1 refund voucher and after getting home I checked the Asda Price comparison website and printed out a £2.10 voucher to use next time- all small comfort!
I had to go into the town centre to the Post Office and had time for just one charity shop and picked the right one because I spotted this great ol' bag of Duplo for £4.99.
We gave Jacob some Duplo for his 1st birthday. There are some bits here to add to what we gave him which he can have for his 2nd Birthday(when I find out what he's short of) and Florence can have the rest to add to the box that I found for her at a car boot last year -for Christmas this year.
Presents sorted! Happy Nanna!
Now I'm just looking out for Duplo people that never seem to be included in the bundles I find.
Hello and welcome to follower 290. Whoop Whoop nearly 300 but will I ever get to 437 .... the number on the old blog, which I'm sure is more than when I stopped and that means people are still starting to follow a blog that I don't write anymore!
Not that I'm chasing followers or anything like that!
I know some people don't follow or comment because they think it gives all their personal info away but anyone clicking a picture or comment name sees minimal information or none at all if the profile is blocked.
I'm so sorry the price of 'that' book from Monday's post is now ridiculous. I found out about it from a comment on the Books Read 2017 page and liked the sound of it and ordered around Christmas time and it was just 1p back then. I hope the price will drop again soon. I've just ordered a winter/Christmas book by Susan Hill that someone mentioned last year (Lanterns Across the Snow), when I added it to my wish list the price was several £ because it was winter and I suppose people were buying it to read over Christmas. But by waiting I got it for 1p plus postage. It pays to wait!
But now I have a new added responsibility to worry about.................what if everyone who has bought the book doesn't like it! Oh dear what a worry.................
