A Stitch in Time Saves a Dime

Recently I discovered that a pair of my winter pyjamas had a number of holes in the top. Now these aren’t the cheapest of pyjamas but I have had them for a solid couple of years and they’ve been worn quite a lot. So, it’s hardly surprising that they’ve suffered a bit of wear and…

Year Round Winter Soup

Soup is one of my most favourite frugal meals, mostly because you can make a large quantity of something quite nutritious and healthy for a relatively low cost. Today for instance, I have made a vegetable soup, which factoring in all the ingredients I purchased along with what I already had in my pantry probably…

Leftovers

How good is it to be saving both time and money? Leftover food can be a very controversial topic. My other half, isn’t that much of a fan as he likes variety. I, however love leftovers. I love making extra so I don’t have to cook two nights in a row and I love even…

The Dollar Value of Gifts

My Dad is difficult to buy for (I’m sure like most Dad’s are). In all honesty he already has too much stuff, wants for nothing and if he does happen to want or need something he just goes right ahead and buys it himself. As a result, for his birthday I’ve been agonizing over what…

Does it Work?

Does anyone else have times of illogical spending or spending money just to see if something works?

So this week, I treated myself to an anti-aging cream (Revlon Revitalift…

My Favourite thing about Pizza

Sometimes it’s nice to either go out for pizza or get a takeaway. Sure, it’s cheaper to make at home but sometimes it’s just an enjoyable experience to buy one because I’ll be honest here, for some reason the store bought ones just taste different don’t they? But a good kind of different. Further, sometimes…

Stocking up on Frozen Meals

Today I went to my local supermaket and picket up some new gluten free/dairy free frozen snacks/meals to keep in my freezer. Coles have just released gluten free and vegan vegetable gyoza as well as gluten free and vegan spring rolls (and vegetable dim sims but I will try those another time). Oh my goodness…

If I had all the Money in the World…

…would I still live frugally? Yes I would. I like my life, there are very few things I would change about it and even then sometimes the things you wish you could change are things money can’t buy anyway. I honestly don’t feel that buying more things or upgrading the things that I do currently…
