Now I don't shop for recreation I get bored and most of the time I just find that I feel the items are just not worth the asking price, I went in for underwear and saw these items that were good value and I knew they would get a lot of wear so I bought them. I like to be frugal but sometimes you are better off getting things you know you will need when you see them at a good price. It is also good to stay out of the shops most of the time as some people always use 'it was a bargain' as an excuse for overspending. I know I don't do that and this is my first clothing purchase this year and probably my last for a while so it is not a problem.
I went yesterday to get my photograph taken with the children for our passports and was shocked to see it was £5 for each of us in the booth! That just shows how long it has been for me since I stepped in one of those. I now also have the expense of the passport applications but we did decide to go to Italy this year so I can't complain, we have organised the holiday ourselves no tour operator as school holiday times are costly enough. At the end of May we will be going here..
So some of the frugal things I do add up so we can do things we really want to do and know that we have saved for it. We will only be staying for 4 nights but we are really looking forward to it seeing the sights and experiencing another country with the children. We are not going to lay on the beach but that is good also if that's what you like to do, I want to see as much as I can of the surrounding area in the few days we have so if we snooze we might miss it! No more clothes spending for me between now and then I have enough summer clothes to take and my bargains of today will pad out my spring wardrobe.
