50 Free & Cheap Things to do with the Kids in the Summer Holidays I buy some cheap face-masks from home bargains, I give them massages, paint their nails, let them have a bath bomb, plait their hair and let them drink non-alcoholic wine - this is one of their favourite days in.

Read on and I'll tell you the real cost of prom for us… As you might already know, last week was Miss Frugal's prom which is a night she's been looking forward to since she was in junior school.

From The Charity Shop - June I'm not sure if it's because I'm at the shop more, if I have my eyes open a bit more, if there has just been great stuff in stock or if it's more to do with how we're changing as a household, but I have bought so much stuff from the charity shop recently, and it's making the place far more pleasant.

Ruby at the beach We took Ruby to the beach last week. It was slightly windy and the tide was quite a way out. We did however, manage to find a big puddle: Once back at the car, we drove off to find a fish and chip shop. Chips and curry sauce was consumed, both in cardboard boxes I am pleased to say, although we took our own water to drink.

What I Spent, What We Ate - Father's Day, a little sickness… It was an off week for Hungry Harvest, and at the grocery store I spent $195. Good thing I didn't get a Hungry Harvest! I'm mostly over due to our Father's Day seafood meal, but it's fine. That doesn't happen every week, and it was still way cheaper than us going out to eat, even for a non-seafood meal!
Picking…. I managed to pick some more strawberries yesterday but quite a lot of them are now showing botrytis infection. Another washed out year for them. We went to finally pick up our rug from the carpet shop. It was a large chunk of the carpet that had been 'whipped' around the edges.
