Maintenance, aging and smelling nice

Hello Dear Reader,

That’s another thrifty week. I’m a simple soul and I’ve kept myself busy this weekend with some maintenance and you would have laughed if you saw me efforts. I needed to clean my roof as the green was blocking out the light. I leant out of the window and mopped it. It’s now much better. I try and get something ‘sorted’ every week to keep on top of things.

I thought I’d update you on my grey hair grow out, I’m still not colouring it and I’m just living with it. The grow out is properly white and that’s ok. Typical of me to take my photo whilst wearing an apron, I always wear one when I’m doing housework to save my clothes.

I’m trying to do more ‘nice’ things, whether that’s cooking something special, taking ourselves out or in this case, smelling fragrant. Even so, I’m going to do that on a budget. If you’ve not heard of Yves Rocher, they’re a French perfume from La Gacilly in Brittany and it’s still made there. I’m signed up to all sorts of retailers from Lidl to my favourite perfume company and get updates of special offers and I wait until I can get my favourite perfume for free. The vanilla perfume was two bottles for the price of one, one of the handbag sized perfumes was half price, one was full price, the hand creme was free as was the full sized perfume. The lot, including postage was £32.25  and will keep me smelling lovely for months. You know me, I never pay full price and I love freebies.

Over to you, who else is signed up to their favourite retailers so you can get updates of special offers? What good deals have saved you money recently?

Until tomorrow,

Love Froogs xxxx
