As time keeps merrily marching forward, it’s time for us to look at what we’re going to do with our finances to prepare for our second child’s arrival.

As the year slowly comes to a close, it will be interesting to look back on my second full year of dividend investing and see just what has happened throughout the twelve months. However, there are still a couple of months to go! So, October’s update will have to do for now 🙂   Some … The post Dividend Income October 2017 appeared first on The Frugal Cottage. ...

I cannot believe that I’m already writing another Ultimate Dream Fund update! It doesn’t seem that long since I was writing the last one out.  This month has been an interesting one, as it’s been quite a volatile one for my investments. It is difficult to log in each day and see such varying numbers! … The post The Ultimate Dream Fund Update – October 2017 appeared first on The Frugal Cottage. ...

Hello November! The one thing I can keep thinking of as I think about it being November, is that I’m due next month – eek! Time seems to be absolutely flying by now.

October seems to have whizzed by in a flash. I’m not entirely sure where the month went?! It also has been a much more spend-y month for us, which is frustrating. Mostly things that were necessary (hello car tax) but even so. After the success of September, it’s slightly bitter sweet!   We had a … The post October 2017: A Month In Review appeared first on The Frugal Cottage. ...

Dating can be an expensive affair, with meals out and drinks on the tab. Even when you’ve been married as long as Mr FC and I (5 years and counting 😉 ) it’s still nice to do things as a couple. But, when you’re on a money saving mission and on a budget, finding date … The post Frugal Autumn + Winter Date Ideas appeared first on The Frugal Cottage. ...

Happy Sunday! We’re currently at my Grandpa’s house as we have been here overnight. Yesterday we had a party to celebrate his 90th birthday. It was lovely to see some family members and to celebrate such a milestone!   Apart from the weekend, it’s been another quiet week for us.

I wrote this about two weeks ago, but I thought I’d share it again due to it starting in November. The reverse advent food bank challenge is being run by the UK money bloggers, and it’s to help many food banks at a time at crisis.
