Our Frugal Lifestyle

My photo
Passionate about eco-frugality. I used to party hard, clubbing my way from pay-packet to pay-packet. Never getting ahead, just getting by. Then came our much wanted baby with no savings in the bank - only an old car. Changes were made to our lifestyle and we didn't turn back. In the past 6yrs we purchased a flat, found employment, lived below our means, built an emergency fund, purchased a reliable car and saw the financial benefits of our frugal lifestyle. Our only debt is our mortgage. Our aim is to manage our cash flow wisely, pay off our home quickly and eventually work for pleasure, not necessity. Join us on our journey, share insights, tips and tricks to help us and others to get ahead while having a good time.

Too Young For Promises! Entertaining Myself.

I love reading Blogs and watching You Tube. Just like a teen - I know, I know.

Anyway when this teen left a comment, so I went and visited her Blog and read about school socials, clothes and homework. She left me feeling lots of nostalgic moments for my teen years in the 80's. And with those nostalgic moments came the want to see some old music clips I would watch late at night on Rage after parties or nightclubbing.

This song and clip by Koo De Tah was one of my favourites that I loved listening to when those lovely boys got a bit too demanding on me and I needed to get some of my girl power back. Plus, I used to wear one diamante dangly earring just like her and feel gorgeous. Those were the days!

Any others out there miss some 80's moments? Anyone remember this song? Probably only Aussies and New Zealanders..

Hey this is about frugality... I'm entertaining myself on the cheap and getting teenage butterflies thinking about, Back in the Day :-)


  1. Not seen this one before, I think we were all too busy drooling over Jason Donovan in the UK !

  2. We had a few similar in the Uk but there was Jason and U2

  3. LOL! One of my favorite "cheap dates" with my husband is for us to look up old music videos from the 80's!

  4. LOL...in the US and 64, but have heard this. I also have a Women's Studies Degree,so this was great fodder.
