Well after much hooing and hawing we have ordered a new Freeview recorder and a new television....well I suppose thats what savings accounts are for!
So looked at how we could curb our spending for a while to build it back up again and suggested that we have 2 vegetarian meals a week - well - you think I had suggested living on bread and dripping!!!!! My family (well, dh and youngest dd) seem to think money grows on tree. As I pointed out we would not be in the position to buy these things if I didnt economise and save up.
Am I wasting my time? should I just be like everyone else and have a brand new car and caravan and shiny new sofas every year and be up to my eyeballs in debt????
Noooo - been there done it and paid it all back - I am never going there again.
So found 2 lovely recipes in the Asda free magazine - asparagus with feta in filo pastry and bean/mushroom burgers - so will report back to see how it goes!
