Winter is Coming!

Well Autumn is still being quite gentle with us but we know it’s on the way, that season of snow and log fires and soup… Time to follow the advice on our Around the House section and look out those hot water bottles and legwarmers!

New to the Make a Few Pounds page is Music Magpie where you can sell your old CDs, DVDs, Games, Blu-rays, Books and Electronics by the box load.

Everything5Pounds has a lot of new season – yes, it’s coming – clothing in, all for £5 of course.

And finally bread, ah lovely bread. Tesco are selling selected full size Kingsmill loaves for 50p just now, or if you want to make your own check out our simple herb and garlic bread recipe.

Keep Cosy!

Cheap as Chickpeas!

It’s proving to be a nice mild Autumn here so far with some lovely oranges and yellows appearing in the trees; long may it continue!

Two of our oldest recipes have finally been spruced up with pictures, and they both contain that cheapest and most nutritious of ingredients: chickpeas! Try our delicious Chickpea Curry or make your own Hummus.

The Sales page has been updated with Joe Brown’s Warehouse Clearance and a money off code for Ethical Superstore.

Thank you to Katrina who let us know that if you sign up to Iceland‘s email notifications you get sent an e-mail with a code for £4 off a £40 shop. More on Iceland and other frugal food shopping tips here.

Happy leaf peeping 🙂

Toys, Porridge and Stuffing!

The most time sensitive bit: Argos have a 2 for 3 sale on selected toys just for today and tomorrow. A great time to get those Christmas presents hidden under the bed! Added to The Sales page.

One of the cheapest meals ever is porridge. Great for a filling breakfast or even a pudding, we can’t quite believe we haven’t added it before. Even if you know how to make porridge, we have lots of ideas for toppings. Feel free to add your own in the comments too. Go see our porridge!

The supermarket Iceland has been added to the food shopping tips section, as it is a source of bargains and bulk packs and you can now shop online.

And a favourite recipe this time of year: http://www.frugal.org.uk/sage-and-onion-stuffing/ We’ve livened it up with a wee picture 🙂

Sales, Surveys and Chocolate!

Firstly we have a delicious and ever so easy chocolate recipe. Pictured above, go see our 3 ingredient raw chocolate bites here!

Inspired by that amazing £2.50 sale mentioned last time (still on, by the way) we have created a page to list all the sales, bargains and discounted shops we come across. Visit it here.

The Make a Few Pounds page has been updated with some new providers of paid surveys and cashback including Respondi Mingle and Swagbucks.

We hope you’re all enjoying the season of swirling leaves and conkers!

Forget shoes for £5, how about £2.50?

The website Everything5Pounds.com, that sells overstocked clothes, shoes and homeware from leading High St shops, has a sale on with over 3000 lines now priced at £2.50! Go see it here.

Short and sweet, but slightly time sensitive, this time 🙂

Shoes for £5 & Chocolate Chips!

It’s so autumnal here in Scotland now, which is fitting as this week brings the Autumn Equinox. Recommended for this time of year: all our soup recipes and homemade Apple Pie!

New to the Around the House section is the website Everything5Pounds which is exactly like it sounds. It sells mainly shoes and clothes, overstocks from the big High street stores, with some home wares too. While browsing the shoes we kept saying ‘Oh those look nice, wonder if they’re really expensive? Oh yes, £5…’

Moo Free Chocolates are running an alternative free from Bake Off competition. This is the last day to vote on the recipes for a chance to be 1 of 3 winners of 2 bags of Original Organic Baking Drops! We draw your attention to the low waste entry from Vegan Family House which uses Aquafaba, the water that’s usually thrown away from a tin of chick peas, to make light and fluffy pancakes. Poll here (closes 12 noon today).

It’s still coming: Frugal Christmas

Don’t forget, we’re now on Facebook, if you fancy following us there.

Here’s hoping for some more sunny days!

A Brambley Update

Last time we had pies, this time it’s cake! We have two new recipes, both using seasonal ingredients. First there’s the wonderful Apple, Banana and Raisin Cake which contains no gluten and no refined sugar. Then we have Bramble Chocolate Chip Cakes which are every so slightly purple!

New to the Freebies Page are a free audio book from Audible and Free 6 month trial of Amazon Prime for students.

On the Make a Few Pounds section we have added information about Facebook selling groups.

Cheaper ways to shop on Amazon now include their Certified Refurbished section and their Outlet for overstocks and marked down items.
