I definitely could have done better at being thrifty this month. However tomorrow is a new month for trying again. Update on my phone iy ended up being replaced as it couldn't be fixed and as it was under warranty  I didn't need to pay anything phew. So that is definitely a plus for this past month.

Second hand dress

I managed to get a dress to wear for a wedding in August for under £10 off Vinted. Now I just need to find shoes and handbag to go with it.

Amazon panel voucher 

This month I only got £2 instead of £5 as I wasn't able to scan receipts. I used the £2 towards a DVD for us to watch over the Easter holidays.

Won a beauty hamper

I won a beauty hamper (worth over £150) in a local Easter raffle. I've managed to sell a few bits from it that I won't use. 

Gather magazine 

I got a copy of Gather Magazine which I reviewed. There are some great ideas featured that I'm hoping to try out.

Camping chairs

My in laws gifted us some camping chairs which are going to come in handy once the weather improves.


I didn't get many freebies this month.

- 15ml sample of Ghost perfume

- Free carrot seeds

- Nature planner from WWF
