money money money oh so funny...

In trying to make ends meet every month with just one pay, I have been seeking more ways to save on our bills which namely and most importantly are food, drink, internet & telephones!

So I have finally got down to do a whole list of every single item I buy from the store and put down the 4 different stores I go to and were I still had the bill put the prices near them and it came out that nowadays the store I use for my monthly shopping has suddenly become more expensive on the few items I could compare with!!! I was left with my mouth open coz just a few months ago the story was different....anyhow next month will be doing my monthly shopping elsewhere and see how that goes. As for internet & telephone I went on the website of my provider and have rechecked my bill and saw 2 discrepancies which I will of course be complaining on and remedy.

Like this I am hoping of saving us approx Eur 30-40 monthly! which yeah I know how I can spend them better than on these nasty bills.

On a different note, the sun is out shining (still- LOL) so when my little pup wakes up from his nap we will go for a nice walk...he really looks sweet sleeping right now...anyway, wish you all a good weekend.

Sunshine makes everything better. The sun is shining again today so I can't wait to go out for lunch!
Have a great weekend.

Good for you for going the extra mile to find the best place to shop for staple items! I'm sure it will surely 'pay off' in more ways than one in the long run!

We're getting sunshine here too!! SO lovely! Me and my boys are headed to the park after naptime to soak in some rays and expend some of their endless energy - then it's date night with my honey!
Woo hoo!!
