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.

HOME - Time for the Green Revolution.

Last night I went to a fundraising movie for Environmental organisations. It was gold coin donation which means $1 to $2. I happily paid $10 for the 3 of us and was able to watch this devastatingly beautiful movie with a room full of people who care about our earth.

People left content to be part of a group that care, however I will tell you, I left with tears running down my face and my tears have spilled over many times today while I was busy in my office job. I feel helpless and hopeless. And I feel deep sadness for my daughter and her future. But maybe... if we all make steps, then maybe.... there is hope.

I desperately wanted to share this movie with you and am so happy to have found the full movie is on You Tube for FREE viewing. Please, please, please take a couple of hours out of your busy lives to watch this educational movie on our beautiful Earth and pass it on to your email contacts and via your blogs.

This movie has really pulled on my heart. I hope it pulls on you emotions too. Click HERE if you can not view it below.

It's time for us to link arms and fight for our Earth.

    I cannot watch this as I will end up like you - feeling hopeless and helpless. I applaud you posting this link in the hope that it will increase awareness. I will continue to do all I can to tread as lightly as possible on this planet and encourage others to do the same.

    My arms are linked with yours as we look for ways to leave a better place for our children and grandchildren.
