I am a delighted to be sharing with you my favourite thrifty posts from the blogosphere this month.
Many people have to be careful with their cash and parents’ creativity when it comes to being thrifty is inspirational. Here are just a few of my favourite thrifty posts this month. Do link up your own or any you have seen that inspire you. They could be about having fun on a budget, being creative and thrifty, upcycling, recycling, money saving or money making, It’s good to share and as my granddad would have said it could save us all ‘a few bob.’ But then he’s the type of man who put his tea cosy on his head to go fishing rather than buy a new hat.
The first blog I want to send you in the direction of is utterly wonderful. If you have not come across Scraphacker you will be astounded. Scrap hacker is all about upcycling at its best. Check out what you could to transform your home with a lick of paint and an old staircase in DIY statement staircases
A weekly treat linking up lots of fabulous second hand treasure blog posts is the fabulous Magpie Monday over at Me and My Shadow. This week the inspiring Liz Burton tells us how she finds a dress totally the wrong size for her daughter and reinvents it to fit – now that’s great charity-shop shopping!!
Over at the fabulous blog My Mummy’s Pennies Jen share s Five free play ideas for summer Star jumps anyone? Who needs money to have fun!
She’s normally SO thrifty but in this wonderful post Miss Thrifty tells us why she forked out on very special £50 cake. You must check out this post if currently pregnant!
