I’m not really one for celebrating Valentine’s day, as far as I’m concerned it is just a way of making people spend money on a load of cheap tat that will ultimately get thrown in the bin the next day. It’s consumerism at it’s worst, well that and Grandparents day! Who on Earth came up with that one, oh I know the card companies, funny that. Anyway I digress back to the subject.
This year I decided that I would stop being a miserable old fart and actually do something for the other half but I challenged myself to create something for free and this is what I did…
To make it I used an old coffee jar, stripped off all the labels and stuck on my own label. I then found a bit of ribbon from my present box and tied it to the top. I filled it up with paper hearts, which I wrote the reasons why I love my other half on.
Simple and didn’t cost me a penny.
Now I’d love to see your thrifty posts…
Thrifty Thursday is a weekly linky and a place to share your thrifty posts. It doesn’t matter if they are old or new and can be about anything to do with saving money and being thrifty. Whether it be a post on cutting back on your food shop or your latest thrifty find link it up, I’d love to see it.
I have also started a Thrifty Thursday board on Pinterest and I will be pinning any entries onto it each week so more people get to see your great posts.
