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.

A Subversive Plot: How to Grow a Revolution...

I saw this on Hazel Dene. It's complimented many of the books I have been reading lately. It's powerful and thought provoking so thought I should put it up to. Enjoy.


  1. Wow! That was powerful stuff. We are gradually turning our agricultural land into a kitchen garden. Learning from our neighbours who have an amazing plot.

    We have grown alot of strawberries, leeks, carrots and potatoes this year. What about you?

  2. Very inspiring. Didn't I already say this? LOL

  3. That was great! He's so right! I'm just about to start digging for victory myself. The summer crops are over and it's time to turn over the ground before winter really sets in!

    My parents have had a small vegetable plot for years, but I'm scaling it up this year! :) Got a long list of crops to start in the spring!
