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 Short Film About Our Community Garden.

Here is a short film with some action from my mum, Dolly and I in our Community Garden planting taro and Dolly looking after the chickens.

I hope to start blogging more regularly here as I have been doing lots of great eco frugal things that I would like to share with you all.

Hope you enjoy the beauty of our lush tropical food garden.

  1. It appears I have to join vimeo to see this video. Right?

  2. No Linda, I fixed the link. Thanks for pointing out the problem. :-)

  3. I am so jealous of your beautiful garden, so please blog more about eco gardening and living, can't wait.....

  4. That was a great film and garden. It was all so lush. Was Dolly the little girl in purple shoes?

  5. Dolly is the only "big girl" in the clip and yes in purple shoes. The other child is the lovely baby of another gardner.

    I pulled Dolly out of school and myself out of work for a couple of hours for the film and also photograph session which is in a magazine.

  6. So glad I got to see the film. What a great community project. Wonderful.

    Hope to see you back blogging soon. I miss you!
