five fabulously frugal thingsThis week I’m joining in with other thrifty bloggers in sharing Five Fabulously Frugal Things I’ve Done This Week as it has been a great week for being frugal.


On Wednesday I started meal prepping again with some gorgeous reusable containers from Amazon. This will prevent me from buying lunch out and save me money. It also saves me time each day and reduces food waste.

Yesterday I rang my bank as one of my mortgage deals is due to come to an end at the beginning of next month. If I had just let it lapse, my payments would have gone down by £18 a month. By calling them and discussing my options with a mortgage advisor I saved us £150 a month! This was an especially Fabulously Frugal moment as it will save us each month for the rest of the two years it is fixed at. That’s a saving of £3600!


We had a lovely family day out for free at our local art gallery. Read more here.
