We moved into this house almost 5 years ago. We looked at the backyard and it promptly went onto the too-hard basket. We had attempted our hands at growing before, but things never really stuck around (read: We killed it all). We were much more successful at growing veges, but we didn’t know when to ...

Oye, I’m back! And with renewed energy and new goals. So 2017 ended with a bang. Quite a big one too, and not exactly in the best kind of bangs. I don’t think I have ever had a year quite like 2017. We started it on such a high and ended it with such a ... [Read more...] The post 2018, here I come! This year’s goals are… appeared first on ...

It’s time to be honest with myself. Those financial reports from Sept, Oct and November and most likely December won’t be happening. Life is happening and life is overtaking everything. Writing has always been my outlet and where better place than my blog to write' So here goes. Sorry it’s not really finance related, though ...

It’s almost the end of Nov! Better later than never. It took me a little while to get back into it. I kept pushing it off as I wanted to release the financial reports first but seriously, I just need to get back into it to get the momentum going again. Here’s the September report ...

Silence. That’s the sound around here for this month. I do have posts to write. I have reports to share – I haven’t shared any of my September reports, for starters. But it’s just been a bit tough around here. We started the month with school holidays which usually means I actively take time away ...

I thought for a bit of balance after my last post about 5 things I don’t do, I should point out the 5 very-not-frugal things that I do actually do that many in the PF world might frown upon. 1. We do pay a subscription fee for Spotify. Before Spotify, the husband would purchase CDs. ... [Read more...] The post My (wannabe) frugal life: 5 things I do. appeared first on ...

Well, I’m not really sure these will still be considered ‘frugal’. Maybe I should just rename it to Foodie Friday. 2 weeks ago was vegetarian-ish week. I felt like we have had meat in our menu for quite a bit more than usual due to my sudden obsession with finding discounted mince and cuts of ...

Let’s not kid ourselves. These aren’t really frugal tips, these are just things I don’t do. I say ‘wannabe’ because I’m getting there. I’m still very much learning and I don’t think I’m truly a frugal person yet. I’m not posting this to brag about it either, nor am I saying you need to follow ...

I watched Minimalism: A documentary about the important things some months ago after reading many recommendations to watch it. You can watch it on Netflix, if you have a subscription. I believe it’s on the Apple and Google store as well, but don’t quote me on that. The premise of the film is fairly simple. ...

In my last Financial Report, I mentioned a no-buy week. It’s a fairly new thing to our household so I thought I’d document it on the blog. Basically, I’m way too ‘good’ at shopping at the grocery store. I love to stockpile because I hate being caught out without. I’m not quite to the extent ...
