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.

FREE 2012 Simple Savings Calendar!

Here's the link to the FREE Simple Savings War On Debt Calendar. I printed mine out and am ready to tackle 2012 with more fabulous frugalness and saving madness.

Sure it says Australia and New Zealand! But hey! All saving money and the planet tricks and tips cross all borders don't you think. We all work of similar principals where ever we are   :-)

So what about you, are your going to squeeze each cent out of the dollar for a better life?

Are you going to think about all your purchasing actions carefully and see if they are good for your pocket, loved ones and planet?

Are you going to lead a less hurried and more thoughtful life?

Are you going to laugh more and enjoy your short time here on this wonderful planet?

I know I will try real hard, and those baby steps of mine are getting bigger, prouder and more definite. Here's to a wonderful 2012! Happy New Year!


  1. Do you know you are such a lovely person? I'm sure you know but I just wanted to say thank you for being such a lovely, generous person and giving such kind words to me. Thank you.

    Love Karen x

    Got to keep dropping in to see what great things your up to. I agree we are all in this together to save our planet so there are no boundaries with being money saving and planet saving x

  2. I would definitely like to live a less hurried life and enjoy it more!

    That calendar is so fun! I will definitely have to do those challenges! The first is earning Screentime for myself! I'm usually out working at the minute anyway, but yes! Does blogging count? :-S

  3. Yep I got mine! Dave and I re-did our budget today, just a bit of retinkering so we both are on the same page and are both responsible for the savings and spendings.

  4. Yes, yes, yes, yes, I will. I need to pinch pennies, but it is also a sport. Seeing how cheaply I can do things is an adventure, a challenge!
