Daily Spends – Mothers Day Special

leave a comment »

Its Mothers Day on Sunday. I have three Mothers to sort for this year:

1 – My Mum
2 – My Mother in Law
3 – My Wife (from my 2 kids, dog, and unborn)

In short, it could be an expensive one! However, I’m lucky enough to have thought ahead and got a few things in over the January sales so each lucky Mother has got a nice cheap (but orginally expensive) Mothers Day gift bag including:

– Bath smellys
– A cool little cake shaped trinket
– A beautiful handmade card
– Some perfume
– Some nice little silk flowers

Total Original Price – £42.39 per bag (x 3 = £127.17)

Total Price ACTUALLY Paid – £14.50 per bag (x 3 = £43.50)

Cash saved by thinking ahead = £83.67
