I was chatting to my fellow mummies in the playground yesterday when the conversation turned to Christmas. One of the mum's said she'd spotted some advent calenders in the poundshop.
After a conversation about how rubbish chocolate calenders are in general, one of us mentioned a book calender!
The idea is you wrap up one storybook for each day of advent. With many charity shops full of lovely books for a few pennies a time it would be a lovely frugal thing to do for Christmas. So I'm going to give it a go.
The 8 books I picked up yesterday cost just £1 for all 8! Definitely in my price range at that price and we can read them over and over until it's time to replace them with fresh stories.
What a great idea! Don't you think?
