Mum if you’re reading this – I hope you realise how easy you really had it when I was growing up. I was pretty much a saint. If I had done drugs, and then gave them up, I imagine coming off them would be a little like my self imposed “No Fabric for Frugal February “ ban. Not Pretty.
Girls ...(I’m pretty sure I don’t have any male readers) this is killing me.
Damn Hancocks of Paducah for trying to tempt me by popping in a massive catalogue of their fabrics with something I ordered last month that arrived last week. I was strong sistahs! I gave the catalogue to a friend for the month so I wouldn’t waiver, right after I turned the corner of all the pages down that I want to look at on March 1st. I told my friend I want the catalogue back at 11.59pm on February 28th.
It’s not helpful that Fat Quarter World keep sending me email updates screaming “Last Days to Save” and offering me 60% off fabric. And Kimberley from Fat Quarter Shop, I truly, truly love ya girlfriend but maybe I should have emailed to let you know I’m on a mission this month. Stop emailing me about your crazy bargains. March 1st Kim…I’ll be back March 1st.
I’ve saved 40% off our grocery bill this month by not buying a whole cow every time I shop. Mr. Pyjamas and I have a “Save the Computer “ fund that we’re stashing all those savings into and we’re finally going to treat ourselves to a new computer next month. I’m pretty much sitting here typing blog posts on an abacus. No. Really. Our computer is about 10 years old. That’s about 100 in human years. I'm looking forward to having a computer that doesn't protest by seizing up when I open more than three blogger posts at a time. It's going to be bliss.
