All too often living on a tight budget is not a choice but a necessity. My mission with this blog is to help you learn tips and tricks if you need to live on a tight budget, but mostly to help you develop the Spirit of Saving and show you that life can be rich without spending lots of money.
I will be covering all aspects of life from money management to grocery shopping and travel. I will also be showing by example that making small changes in our everyday lives can make living frugally easy and sustainable while allowing us to spend our hard-earned money for the things that are really important. Whether you are trying to save for a big purchase or life event, dealing with limited income or debt or simply want to learn and share frugal living tips, you’re at the right place!
From a young age I’ve been a saver, amazed by the concept of interest and making money by having money. After leaving home while in university, I was put to the test to find ways to make my summer earnings last all year. I started gathering a collection of tricks to make my money go further without missing out on the important things in life. Many years later, after graduating and getting a full-time job, I find myself still using most of these tricks and constantly looking for new ways to save. This blog is an opportunity to share all that I have learnt as well as all that I will discover.
