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.

My Memories Suite Scrapbook Software

Hi Everyone.

This is the product I was offered to review and have as a Giveaway on my blog. I've been playing with it and hope to have some fun samples of things I've done to show you in the next few days.

It's come at a great time as photos were piling up on the computer and nothing was being done with them (Even thought the Rambling Expat is a full time professional photographer). I wanted our beautiful photos presented in a nice way for Dolly and her favourite people to flick through. So this may be my opportunity to make some nice frugal photo booklets as gifts for Grandma and Dolly's friends.

Keep an eye out on my Blog as I will Review and start the Giveaway on Sunday.


  1. Hi Practical Parsimony,

    Yes it's pretty neat, I've been having some fun with it. I'm time poor but it's easy to use so I hope to have a few items ready to show you all.

    It's my 1st product to review ever, that I've accepted as it's economical if your a scrap-booker fanatic and not too hard on the environment as it's a internet downloadable software.

  2. My husband just made up a book for his moms 80th birthday and this program looks better than the one he used. I like the idea of crating DVD's as well for sending overseas.

  3. I am not a scrapbooker. I am a throw-it-in-a-box-until-I-am dead-and-children-can-sort-it type. Now that I have been digital for five years, at least, I throw it in my documents and never sort it either. I have a laptop and a dead laptop and a dead pc with various pictures. Sad. But, this piques my interest into at least being a sorter! The book is intriguing.
