Sometimes when you are saving or pinching the pennies, it can be very easy to forget that life is passing you by and you are missing it whilst sat in the dark, wearing 3 jumpers and sipping tea made from pinched hotel teabags.
I am all for throwing every penny I have at the things I want in life, like our future nest and our wedding, but also I sometimes need a night off or a new pair of shoes to remind me why I never say ‘keep the change’*.
*Yes I am tight…but it boils down to if I keep that 30p… ten times of taking my change means I have £3… which is over a tenth of my food budget for the week…. as the old saying goes…look after the pennies and then you can feed them into the self-service machines in Sainsbury’s and pay the rest on card….
We decided to change it up last week and get ourselves out of the house, without spending much money. When I lived in London, we used to go and abuse the free things like the museums, now we are 45 minutes away by train, we have to think creatively.
So was born….. The Under £10 Date Night.
What do you enjoy doing on the cheap with your favourite person?
