Boxing Day

and the freeze goes on...
Weather and travel still make headline news, but top news is the Sales. Checked out a price on-line for neighbour who has an unwanted present. Buyer paid £20 to get it in time for Christmas, sale price now is £10. Neighbour told buyer (year on year) that she neither wanted nor was going to give presents. Not because she's mean or anything like that, but because she isn't flush with money. I appreciate her honesty.
Seems some folk were buying on-line yesterday! I must admit on-line sales are tempting...
I've begun to think of forthcoming birthdays in January. So have looked on-line but not yet come across anything that appeals to me, so no purchases made today. Instead have reviewed my finances, which although a tad 'battered' by Festive expenditure has not been excessive.

Guess I ought to thank my upbringing for instilling in me the value of money!

So, gnome-like am going to save the pennies for another day...

"Pennies are made round to go around, but made flat to pile up"

My hubby always gives me after christmas money...I love it. Most of all I try to buy items for next years Christmas, like wrapping paper, cookie containers and useful things like that. I love the penny quote...its money and they do mount up if you save them. "A penny saved is a penny earned"

Great quote about 'penny saved, penny earned'!
Wrapping paper's something I always have in stock, not for me the 'latest' or 'this' year's patterns. I even have some for wrapping birthday presents...
