    I thought it might be a good idea to compile an alternative Old-Style calendar for 2009, showing the best times of year to find bargains, or the times to make the best savings. I see it as a calendar in reverse - The opposite of when the large companies would like us to buy things. ....

    This is great, thank you Greenshieldstamp, and other contributors. :T:T:T
    ... don't throw the string away. You always need string! :D

    Also Jan is a great time to stock up on Mulled wine (although if you're anything like me it'll be gone by the end of the year!)

    This has got me thinking about how much I could plan ahead....menu planning for a year? (ok menus for a month that repeat 12 times)

    I was thinking of doing my usual weekly menu plan, but in a diary or spread sheet writing down what we actually had that week and at the end of the year you would have a years worth of ideas for next year. You might also see how the pounds are creeping on or off ( though not in my case :) )

    Old age isn't bad when you consider the alternative.

    All cards are bought when I see them at The Card Factory and generally buy the 29p cards as most are lovely looking and look very expensive.

    From time to time they do a 10 cards for a £1 offer so I buy these then have some in - because in a hurry I really don't want to pay local shop/supermarket prices.

    I went on search, and told it to search for 2009, but only in the titles, and only on the Old Style Board....
