What can be Better than Shopping - And Saving Money

Well that's how I see it ,I took my long suffering husband shopping today which combines his 2 least favourite activities Shopping and Spending money ,he just fails to see how much I saved, lets see if you see it my way:

Savings $16

Savings $14.05


 Savings $20.05

This is my mums birthday present I love the Dan Samuels silver (it is solid silver)
basket it is such an every day item but is made out of something beautiful like silver - savings $69
and Sugar and Cream set in bone china -savings $31.50 ,I may just go back and get myself a basket I love it so much

Lastley a Jamie Oliver professional Knife set $150 ,a shopping pull along trolley so that I have no excuse not to walk the 2 .5 KLMs to the shops and back and hopefully get a bit fitter- Savings $34.50,
Pizza Stone - Savings $20
All in all a total of $355.10 saved and something for my mums birthday ,plus hopefully an incentive to walk each day, I really think my husband is better off not seeing these things as he really loves to have a nice house and give people presents he just does not enjoy the process needed to achieve it ,oh well he can't be perfect all of the time.
