The most frugal thing we did this week was cancelling the visit from the telephone engineer. We had no telephone or internet from Tuesday until Thursday and then it all just started working again on Thursday night. The telephone engineer was due on Friday afternoon at a cost of £129.99, so cancelling him was a very time consuming business but well worth it !
With no internet there was no browsing for anything going on so I 'm sure that contributed to a very low grocery spend this week of £2.62 just for tomatoes and bananas.
We also fetched some pallets for firewood; scored some great jumble sale bargains; baked pumpkin bread out of the Halloween pumpkin; made our own chocolate ice cream; baked a blackberry and apple pie out of foraged fruit and added an extra cheap book to an Amazon order to make sure that we did not have to pay postage !
