There is nothing better than treating those you love.
However you still have to be mindful of the pennies it costs.
Take the weekend for example, Ashleigh really wanted to go and see the new Harry potter film.
No problem with that but I haven't seen the last two films (shame on me I know!) and hubby hasn't seen even more, so it was a real waste for either of us to go and see it.
So Ashleigh went off with my nephew to see it as our treat. (£16!)
Of course next is popcorn and drinks (£7!) I am always to tight to buy them and take my own.
(shh don't tell!)
So a nice treat then becomes a fairly expensive one.
That said, they both came back having had a great time and very thankful.
Whilst they were enjoying the film I ventured into the local charity shops and found a perfect cardy for Ashleigh.
A grand total of £1.99.
(bet the wool cost more than that!)
All hand knitted too.
That's more my kind of treat.
