Howdy Peeps, I'm the idiot 🙋♀️ I've been making a broccoli rice casserole for years (I think I saw it on Moneysaving Mom originally). Brilliant for times like these when we want to make the food last. I was just gonna give you the recipe, coz it's easy and cheap but then realised the ton [...]
What to Say?
Hello Peeps, I was going to talk about Disney and Pixar today, but it seems a little insensitive when they are closing parks down for the longest period in their history... some Disney parks will be closed until at least the end of this month. They have never closed for this long, not after earthquakes [...]
Budgeting for Christmas!
Hellooooo Peeps! Now is the time for Christmas shopping, it is a mere 4 months away (yesterday). I've been out and about this week getting a few bits for the teenager to return to school. While I was out, I headed to B&M for some bits and the Card Factory (to buy some Exam Congrats [...]
How-do Peeps! I've been thinking about re-stocking the pantry for a while, but I like to do my research first. I was watching a YouTube grocery haul/meal planning video (or 5) and they bought a lot of stuff in bulk...like huge table sauces and such, so I thought it was worth investigating. I had a [...]
Time, Not Money
Morning Peeps! Just a little parenting thought for you all. I'm sure we all know that time is a precious commodity and it is better spent on our children than spending tons of cash on them. I guess I'm sharing with you the proof of that statement. Mr.B and I were talking about more things [...]
Hi-de-hi Peeps! April brings the start of the new financial year in England. So Mr.B and I had a good old chat and did some calculating yesterday. The thing with the annual bills (like council tax and water, which have recently arrived) is that the monthly payments are never quite equal... you have to watch out [...]
Lose Weight Frugally
Howdy Friday Peeps! You know I've been getting myself back into the swing of things diet-wise, but talking to others I've been shocked by how much they spend on diet foods and such... If you can afford it and want to do it then good for you, but I could never bring myself to pay for [...]
Budgeting For The Big Day (Part 1)
Morning Peeps! This is a big topic, but I want to talk to you about weddings. 🙂 Aside from the fact I'm going to one this year and have at least 2 more in the near future, they started a new series of Don't Tell The Bride last week and it always frustrates me that [...]
Morning Peeps! Happy Saturday/1 month until Christmas/Arthur Christmas Day! If you read yesterday's post you'll know I'm ridiculously excited because my lovely daughter and I will be going to a huge Christmas market today!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 (Please excuse any over-excited typos.) So a week or two ago I shared this post --> Budget-Friendly Handmade Gifts good for [...]
Buy Cheap Without Looking Cheap
Hi-de-ho Peeps! My dad would say it's lovely weather for ducks....but I'm not sure even ducks like it this wet! Absolutely pelting it down here! Anyhoo, I wanted to share my favourite smart shopping tip, so here are some ways to pep-up some things you can buy cheaply. buy cheap candles (like supermarket own) and [...]
