When I first started writing this blog I had absolutely no idea where it would take me. Being a blogger can be a funny existence though and blogging can definitely open doors for you.
This lunchtime I took the train north from St Albans to Luton to meet up with fellow blogger Liz from Me and My Shadow. Together we headed over to BBC 3 Counties Radio where we appeared on the Nick Coffer show to talk about all things thrifty.
It's years since I was last on the radio. I think I was about 16 the last time, talking about some school project. Today we were talking about being thrifty when it comes to the grocery shopping and it was great fun to both prepare and do, despite the nerves before going on air. Coming up with a list of tips for saving money at the supermarket wasn't actually that difficult and chatting about it all with Liz and Nick was also easy – as ever, if you know your subject matter it's quite easy to talk about it.
If you're interested in listening the show is on iplayer here for the next week, so until Wednesday 26 June 2013. Not sure I yet have the guts to listen back to it myself, but please let me know what you think – our slot starts about 1 hour 12 minutes in.
To fit in with what we covered today, this week's Thrifty Friday Five will be grocery shopping and I hope to include what we spoke about on air.
