As most of you know I am a messy and chaotic person. And somewhat disorganised. Anyway I really wanted to do a Eco Magazine giveaway, however it seems they are sitting in the car that is parked in the street. And since it's a few minutes after midnight and I'm in my nightie I really don't feel like walking out there and search the car. I'll do the Eco Mags next weekend.
So instead I will giveaway One copy of my favourite paperback books on paying off your mortgage faster using frugal ways. Your Mortgage And How To Pay It Off in Five Years was one of the 1st books I began reading when I started on my frugal journey. The pages are starting to yellow (I live in the tropics) but they are all firmly intact. I learnt so much from this little gem and think you will too.
I think this book is useful for home owners paying off the mortgage but also renters who could learn some tips on how to make your money work harder by the way you spend it and use it. It's an easy book to read and Anita reads like a true friend.
All you have to do is write a tip or story on how you save/d money to pay/paid off your mortgage or rent. Dolly will pick out one random number out of a bowl and that will be the winner. I'm not techie enough yet for one of those random generators yet. So get your tips and stories in and lets share the savings. You have until the end of Wednesday 06 July 2011 and it's open to everyone in every country.
This is in celebration of hitting over 60 followers, also having a readership from non blogspot folks and because I just turned 41, 29 minutes ago...
Thank you to all of you for keeping me on track, giving great advice and support and allowing me to view a piece of your life. I really look forward to all your great tips and stories.
Our Frugal Lifestyle
- Frugal Down Under
- 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.
