The 7th December is a very very special day! It’s a Saturday, it’s festive and…… it’s #ShopLocalSaturday! What’s that we hear you cry……well…..it’s pretty much what it says on the tin. Its a special day (namely a Saturday) where nationwide people will be trying to shop locally! What a great idea – Team Pugh love local shopping and Saturdays so it would seem that #ShopLocalSaturday is right up our high-street!
As you know we are going to be doing a daily advent blog and of course they will be a surprise but…..we wanted to give you advance warning of our challenge / activity for 7th so……. you could join in too! On #ShopLocalSaturday we pledge to try to buy 5 Christmas gifts from the local shops in our lovely little home town Faringdon (apparently one of the top ten towns in the UK to bring up small people – result)! So….. fancy joining us? Please do, after all if we don’t use them we’ll lose them and in our experience local shopping saves us money. We know for some folk its not possible etc etc but if it is and you’d like to try and do what we’re doing we’d be mighty pleased!
Here is a link to the #ShopLocalSaturday website and twitter account. You can even print off these fun posters and get people to pose for silly photos! We’re thinking this could be a bit of fun to get our local shop keepers in a good mood!
In other news here is this week’s non-supermarket shopping, a total of £35.70! Included in that were some bits and pieces from the deli and some meat but……we forgot to photograph it and were too lazy to get it back out of the cupboards again but it was some beautiful wild rice, 2 blocks of butter (we have bakes to make for WI) and some yogurt covered nuts! Yummy!
