Five Fabulously Frugal Things I’ve Done This Week: 16/06/17

Five Fabulously Frugal Things I’ve Done – 16th June 2017

  • YELLOW STICKERS. Living so close to an Asda can be great, as long as I’m not buying unnecessary things. I pop in each day on the way home from the school run to see what I can find to throw in the freezer. This week I grabbed a huge chicken selection including legs, thighs and drumsticks for £2.25; should have been £4.50. I could have got it cheaper at their discount time but there was only a couple of trays left so I grabbed them as they’ll do a couple of meals.
  • Disposable packed lunch. Eban is very forgetful, he loses things easily and is generally a pain in the butt at times. This week he’s been on a day trip to a local park and I needed to supply his lunch. Normally he takes a packed lunch anyway so this was no different BUT to avoid the risk of him losing his lunchbox I sent him with a packed lunch that he could just bin.
  • Made do with my hair dye. I’ve recently fallen in love with Manic Panic hair dyes but they’re not cheap. A standard semi-permanent dye around £10 but it lasts well. This week my hair was looking a little more orange than Vampire’s Kiss so I needed to re-dye. Unfortunately there wasn’t much left in the pot so I had to make it stretch. I was super careful about applying it, making sure the roots and the tips had a good coating then brushed it through. Safe to say it’ll go another few weeks now before I need another pot.
  • Vipon. I love Vipon and check it every few days for deals. Basically you are offered items on Amazon for free or a discounted price in the hope you’ll review the item for the seller. This week I’ve ordered two “Indestructible” Frisbees for our Staffy (Dax) which should have been £11.79 each and they were £2.15. If they are in fact indestructible then they are a bargain, if not then I’ve saved all the money trying them out.
  • Love my feet. Six weeks back I took a chance on a foot peel a friend recommended and it had great results. Unfortunately my feet are that bad that there are still a few areas of hard skin so I’ve decided to give the peel another go. Luckily they have been discounted from £9.99 per pair to £6.99 per pair, so I’ve ordered two. A nice saving there, just in case the price goes up again. There will be a blog review over on ChammyIRL after this round.

  1. Great idea about the packed lunch. I wish they made disposable ties – my youngest is on the third one this month. He is now too embarrassed to go and buy another one himself as the lady keeps asking him what he’s doing with them!

    I’ve not heard of Vipon but it sounds great. I will check it out – thank you.

  2. Vipon sounds fantastic! And I totally understand the packed lunch problem – I gave up on lunchboxes years ago because of this exact thing 🙂

  3. Good bargain with the chicken. Yellow stickers make such a difference. I should have a try with the foot peel – had a go with Footner a while back, but it cost an arm and a leg (appropriately enough)
