I didn’t join in with Five Fabulously Frugal Things last week as life was too busy. It wasn’t a particularly frugal week. The car cost us more money again. This time, a flat tyre! However, this does appear as one of my five fabulously frugal things I’ve done this week!
Husband took the car in, expecting to have to pay for a new tyre. Our car has run-flats and cost anywhere between £70-£120 each, which is definitely not fabulously frugal. However, the local tyre man took a look at it and was able to repair it for just £15!
Yes, we had enough points for two free coffees for our weekend coffee shop visit.
Free School Trip
Eldest son’s school is organising an end of year trip to a Trampoline park. The school then rewarded all the pupils with 100% attendance with the choice of £10 Amazon voucher or FREE attendance on the trip and he chose the trip.
Photoshop for Free
Eldest son wanted us to get Photoshop. Then I remembered that, as I work in education, I could get it free through work. All I need to do was request it from our IT Department and they emailed me a link to Adobe Creative Cloud and I was then able to download it. It can be installed on up to 5 devices. We took a quick look at it last night and decided we would sit down together, once the exams have finished, to investigate it further.
Yes, my biggest saving each week – commuting by bike to work and back. This saves me £53 every 4 weeks.
It is amazing how all these little things add up each week.
