Moneysaving New Year Tip

I've thought of a little tip for saving us a few pennies (and time!) in the New Year, and with VAT going up in the UK today, we could do with it!

I've simply used the crafts I made this time last year and changed them to this year.

For example, this was a 'Memories of 2010' jar that I made. It was used to put in little slips of paper with memories of days in the year that we wanted to remember - usually good memories! :-)

Here it is with 2010:
Simple bit of correction pen on the '0':
..and rewrite with a '1':
Job done! Saving both time and money. :-)  Now we can create some new happy memories!

Another one:
This 'Important Dates' Calendar
Just take off the old and stick on the new year's calendar.

If you like the calendar craft you have done, and/or spent a lot of time on making it, (maybe you have received one as a gift?) think about how you could make it last longer than just the one year!

I would like to add this tip into the Top Tip Tuesday challenge.

Thanks for looking and for any comments,
