I want our home tidier for our House-sitters/pet-sitters and in case there is a cyclone. Our housesitters were Help Exchangers over a year ago and we have stayed in contact. Frugalistas like us, they have been living in a caravan for free in exchange for the care of horses. So they welcomed the chance to spend 5 weeks in a city flat in exchange for the care of our cat. This is cheaper for us then putting our cat in a cattery and gives us peace of mind and it gives them a "holiday" home.
I am also sending emails to Couchsurfing hosts In Bali as I would like to find a family to stay with. If unsuccessful I would like to find a cheap Lostman for Dolly and I that is not full of party animals. Maybe I will need to purchase a Lonely Planet...
Are you going away anywhere?
How are you making it a frugal trip?
