I talk a lot here at The Frugal Cottage about saving money, budgeting and early retirement. That’s the three strands I focus on most and have done right from the start. Posts about saving money on food, general money saving tips and investing for income are my most popular posts.   But, I was reading …
Recently, I feel like I’m losing focus on our goals and am not trying enough to be able to achieve them. I think that little things can get in the way and you can lose track completely. I especially feel like this when I’m having a bad week eating wise; it’s so easy to throw …
I cannot be the only one that finds it hard to believe we’re already a third of the way through April already?! The last time I did a life update, we were still in the early stages of having Frugal Baby around and sleep deprivation was all I could think about. One of the things …
I have mentioned in previous blog posts that it took me a long time to start investing. I found the whole idea of investing quite scary. There were multiple warnings about the fact that you could lose your money and that you could get out much less than you put in. Putting the money that …
The third month of the year is over which means I get to do another dividend income post. I just love writing these! It took me well over a year to pluck up the courage to open a stocks and shares ISA and get started, but I am so glad I did.   I love …

Just popping on to wish you and your family happy Easter, if you celebrate it. We’re spending the day with Mr FC’s family, which includes doing a little Easter egg hunt for Frugal Toddler. I cannot wait 🙂 April aims up tomorrow! xx
It’s the end of March already – how can that be?! This year is absolutely flying by so far. I can’t believe that we’re almost at the start of the fourth month already. Frugal Baby is nearly 16 weeks (!) old and thriving. Frugal Toddler is changing and growing each week as he learns more …
I mentioned during February that I was struggling with our finances a bit. Being at home all of the time isn’t helping that, I am sure. March so far seems to be going much better; I feel much more in control and positive about our spending habits.   But, that can change so quickly. And because …
