6 FRUGAL WINS The Melbourne Cup (for my international readers, this is the most famous horse race in Australia) was on last week and I had planned to go out to a bar to watch the races. However, the weather was pouring down all day so instead of going out,  I stayed at home in... Read More ...

  At the beginning of this year when I relocated from Sydney to Melbourne, I was provided with free accommodation for a month in a self-serviced apartment. I had decluttered almost all my belongings and everything I owed consisted on a couple of large suitcases of clothes and some basic furniture which was being shipped... Read More ...

October was quite a month and I reached a number of personal milestones. I worked hard to get my ‘mojo’ back and into the swing of daily routines to get back to feeling my best. I wrote 10 blog posts in one month, the most I’ve written in a long time. I decluttered my room... Read More ...

6 FRUGAL WINS While I had gastro last week, I have visited the doctors 3 times. Aside from the $30 registration fee for the clinic, I have paid $0 on doctors fees as the clinic bulk bills the costs (thanks Medicare and free health cover). I was gifted a new personalised notepad for setting my... Read More ...

Today was one of the most productive days I’ve had in the past week. Mainly because I’ve been bedridden for the past few days with a virus and been itching to have the energy to do something other than sleep or stay in bed and watch ‘How I Met Your Mother’. I went on an... Read More ...

3 FRUGAL WINS I caught the gastro virus mid-week and the benefit of being awfully sick all weekend was staying in all weekend and saving money by not going out. Because I had gastro and couldn’t leave the house, I ate through many things in the pantry which had previously been neglected, such as plain... Read More ...

Today I’m starting a decluttering challenge, because simply put, I’m sick and tired of dusting off dust bunnies from things I don’t use or value anymore. No more knick knacks and no more dust bunnies! I’ve done these challenges before which almost always is triggered by a sense of frustration that things are accumulating and gathering... Read More ...

6 FRUGAL WINS I received the last quarterly dividends of the year, totalling $262 in dividends. Of course, these were automatically re-invested to buy more shares. Anything to help that eight wonder of the world (compounding interest). I automated my payments further every month after payday. I have now split money I’m saving into 50%... Read More ...

5 FRUGAL WINS My housemate and I had a credit card hiding party. We both took our credit cards out of our wallets and hid them somewhere in the apartment, and vowed that we wouldn’t touch them again, unless in an emergency (i.e. couldn’t afford to pay bills). My bills are still deducted from my... Read More ...

This year has been a whirlwind year of ups and downs, new opportunities opening and old chapters closing. The one thing I’ve learned over the year is the positive impact a few free, daily activities which I’ve integrated into a daily routine. These are not just steps I’m writing in an article to post on the...
