Minimal Spending: Day 2

October 5th, 2013 at 07:47 am

First of all, yesterday I ended up spending 1.49 on two packs of salt (50p/kg) for hubby to soak his foot in , and some more tissues for SG.

Today has been a no-spender. I've been spending the day getting organised for going to work tomorrow, and cooking up food for us and SG. I've got a sheperdess pie cooking just now. First time I've made it, there's certainly plenty of veg.

I found over a kilo of dried green lentils that MIL gave us a while ago. Expires next month but I want to use them before then, so I've been trying to find recipes using green lentils online.

Mil text me yesterday to tell me that she had sandwiches dated tomorrow for me for work (lunch sorted), and to invite me to my first ever bridal shower. I told her I couldn't afford it at first, then she told me it's at the bride-to-be's mum's house. She offered me a lift home that night, or I can stay at hers. I said I would go after that. I'm not sure about etiquette at bridal showers though. Do I need to bring a gift?

I've been obsessively checking my credit card statement online for the past few days, waiting for it to update. It finally updated today. Minimum payment was 70, I paid 90. Getting close to my goal of 60 by the end of the year.

    It's always so nerve-wracking waiting to see those minimums update! I wish you the best of luck in achieving your goal!

    For our bridal showers at a family home, we call them kitchen teas, and you do normally bring a small domestic gift. I would check with your Mil first (if you can) and if she indicates yes, a gift is normal, maybe check out an op shop for a 'like-new' apron, or recipe book holder, hand towels - although it's difficult when you don't really know the person, their needs or their decor. Could you offer instead to bring a plate? Best of luck with this - it can be difficult navigating bridal etiquette at the best of times, let alone when you're trying to save money.
