This week has been great, but in the last hour I have made a clumsy and costly mistake.
You see those cards in the photo? A nice stash of Birthday, Mother’s Day, New Baby etc cards.
I totally spilt coffee on them.
Now I have to weigh up how cheap I am versus how much I don’t want to give my friends birthday cards that have coffee stains on them. Hmm.
In fact this weekend I have been a bit clumsy. I knocked the cottage cheese on to the floor and broke the tub, I pinched my finger on the pump on the hand wash and I forgot to buy Greek yogurt so I had to go back to the shops.
I did manage to buy some rainbow carrots though which I am looking forward to trying.
I am currently up to 12 No Spend Days, so I have met my monthly target, and I may score a few more before the month is out.

I think that was a pretty lean week, but I will be expecting bigger spends next week as I have a food delivery coming. And I am planning on ordering a bumper Amazon order for upcoming birthday’s and Mother’s Day tomorrow so will probably spend at least a couple of quid then (I have a lot of vouchers to use).
