My stuff for sale!!! \o/

We've got a Christmas Craft Fair tomorrow and some of my jewellery is on sale :) I've already had some interest so I'm hoping to make some sales. Fingers crossed.
Just watched an item on Martin's Money tips on some women in the US who has made a living out of saving coupons/vouchers and is able to feed a family of 6 for just a couple of dollars, which to us is about a £1!!! If you're reading this from the US check out the link to Martin Lewis' website with my links of interest. Unfortunately the system seems to be slightly different to here but I'm always pretty chuffed by the fact that although I cut my income by 20% it hasn't really effected my standard of living and I'm still able to save. Most of that's though shopping at market stalls, buying multi buys and things that are on offer and using my Boots reward card points. Charity shops are also great but thats not a new love, I've always bought most of my clothes from Charity shops.
Christmas should be interesting though, a bit of a challenge. I'm on a very limited budget (about £10 a person) + 1 birthday so hope family are happy with present. Thankfully I don't celebrate Christmas so no worries about turkeys and all that nonsense. We're just spending a few days down at the South Coast and will probably do a spot of fossil hunting on Christmas day. We're much happier with that. Christmas is fine if that's what you want to do but its not important to me or my bf so we don't celebrate it. It sounds a bit scroogish but its really nice and so much cheaper and less stressful.
