Thrifty Thursday – Save Money By Doing Your Research

This week we haven’t really been very thrifty at all, we’ve actually spent quite a bit buying things for the new house. That’s one of the downside of buying a brand new home, there are no fixtures or fittings, so we’ve literally had to buy everything from curtain poles to toilet roll holders!

We did however manage to save a bit of cash with Lowenna’s new furniture. We found the perfect 3 piece set for her colour block bedroom which was going to cost us £196.97 + £20 delivery from a well known high street store.

I really wasn’t happy with that price so I went home and did some research online and managed to find the exact same 3 piece set for £169.99 with free postage! So today I managed to save us a total of £46.98 which I was happy with. It just goes to show that if you look around there are deals to be had.

I think they go really well in her room and help to hide some of her toys!

  1. I love that feeling when you find the same thing MUCH cheaper on the internet. I think I’m currently being thrifty by not going to Ikea where I’d like to spend loads of money (sadly I didn’t win their competition for €1000 worth of stuff.)

  2. Love that pink furniture, it’s fab! Doing your research online is definitely the way forward, Gina! It saves me money on just about everything I buy now- I wrote a post on the various tips and tricks I use about a month ago. Here it is, you might find it interesting.

  5. My first house was a new house. I remember going out and buying the toilet roll holder, lightbulbs, and curtain rails. Least you’re not just “living” with someone else’s taste while you save up money to replace it.

    Joining in for the first time. Love everything Thrifty, so I am off to visit the other links.

    1. I’m back to reply to the question you left on my post. We use a company based out of Glastonbury for our veg box delivery. Not sure how far down south you are, but they may cover your region (40 miles, I think). The prices are good (no where near twice as much!) and the quality is so much better than the supermarkets. We have a few local cooperative farms that advertise veg boxes in our local papers. Might be worth looking into one of those.

I'd love to know what you think...
