Taking Stock 02


After the many likes and comments on my previous Taking Stock venture (a Pip Lincoln idea) I’ve decided to serve up a second slice.
To the bloggers who mentioned they were ready to start their own TS posts, comment with your links, I’d love to see what you’re up to. And to any new readers, hello!

    Needing a break in the rain so I can garden.

  2. How awesome is the Little Moments app?! Totally loving it! I’m “needing” to learn the secrets of those people who can save money easily…and if they say “no shopping” then I will understand why – they are crazy!

    • I’m the same Sonia, I can’t NOT shop, it’s a sin! Hahaha. Little Moments is brilliant and so damn cute. 🙂 E x
