Daily Spends – A Diary of Spending Habits

What I spend, when and where?

Bank Holiday Spending – Back to Basics

with one comment

We aimed to take it easy this Bank Holiday weekend and keep spending to a minimum – and succeeded! Managed to get away with minimum spend on Saturday, Sunday & Monday with cunning use of some old school days out!

Saturday, Feed the Ducks! – Took it easy at the park. Took the children to feed the ducks and for a run around. Two cheap ice creams & a good play on the park. Spend – £1.60 (two ice creams)

Sunday, Get to the Seaside! – Blackpool! Oh yes! Blackpool! If ever there was a place children could make you spend money – its Blackpool! . . . No if you’re savvy like me though. Park at the far end of the prom (find a free spot outside someone’s house), take a good long stroll up the beach and then spend a couple of hours on the fairground. Spend – £3.49 (large chips, candy floss)

Monday, Watch the Planes Land! – The most expensive day this weekend was a trip to the Aviation Viewing Park to see the planes come in at the airport. Fab afternoon out (if a little geeky) – Spend – £20.00 (fuel & entry)

  1. Someone told me this weekend that the yeast in bread is poisionous to fish when the duck has finished with it (that’s the politest way I can think to put it) so feeding the ducks is actually really bad for wildlife. Not to put a dampner on things or anything…..
