Happy Sunday! Are you having a nice, relaxing weekend?   This week has been quite quiet until Friday. Just the usual routine, though Mr FC has been on holiday which is nice. We get to spend more time as a family that way. We haven’t done that much; just plodded along nicely.   On Thursday …
maternity pay maternity leave baby
As I’m writing this, I have exactly two weeks left of my own maternity leave left with Frugal Baby. On Sunday 1st, I officially return to work. I can’t believe how fast it has gone the second time around. I am so not ready to be leaving both of my babies behind and going back …
I have always loved reading, right from being a young child. Being able to escape into a good book is such a wonderful thing. We read to Frugal Toddler every night before he goes to sleep and I am hoping that he will enjoying reading just as much as Mr FC and I do. Inspiring …
Motivation Why Life Motto
I couldn’t think of a better title for this, though it sums the post up fairly bluntly.   It’s something I have been pondering lately. About what I would love to happen to us, as a family. And where we might be in say, 5 years time. I think that thinking long term is important, …
Capsule Wardrobe

Another month is over which means I get to write my favourite post of the month – my dividend income report!   I love logging into my account and checking out if I’ve received any dividends. May seems to be a fairly consistent month in terms of income; it has been slowly rising since I …
Hello June! I always feel a renewed optimism when a new month begins. May seemed to be a bit tough for our household, so I’m sure June will be better. It’s what you make it, right? 🙂   The thing I’m most looking forward to in June is that we are away for a week …
Happy Birthday to The Frugal Cottage! I cannot believe I have managed to keep something going consistently for so long. The only other thing I’ve managed to do for this long other than blogging is learning the piano 🙂 I started this blog way back on 1st June 2014 and here we are, four years …
I’ll be totally honest, I’m glad May is over and done with. It started off with me having chicken pox for the first time and being quite poorly with it. It really took me out of it, and just as I was feeling better, both Frugal Toddler and Frugal Baby got it. Frugal Toddler thankfully …
I get it, budgeting is not exciting. Keeping on track day in day out, is hard work at times. I have a spreadsheet that I’m supposed to enter our spends in each day to keep on track, but I keep forgetting lately. By the time we’ve got the boys in bed and then the house …
