Debt and personal finance often rank highly in lists of things we wish we were taught at school, but weren’t. This lack of knowledge, in many cases, has lead to terrible money management decisions and contributes greatly to personal debt in the UK. After all, finance is complicated. If we lack a basic financial education, …

I will be completely honest about this before I begin this post; I’m worried that it won’t go to plan!   That being said, I have pondered this for a while now and am biting the bullet so to speak. I originally started The Frugal Cottage to help people, and to give hope that you …
Frugal Cottage Change
I have had this post sat in my drafts for a while now, but I think that it is time to share this with you, especially after the excitement at the weekend.   I want to take The Frugal Cottage in a slightly different direction and change things around here, a bit.   I love …
The SHOMO awards - I have arrived!
Yesterday i was very lucky to be able to attend the UK Money bloggers conference and SHO-MO awards in London. I didn’t get off to the best start on the day, as when I arrived at the train station at 6am, my train had been cancelled for no apparent reason. So, I had to wait …

Hello September! It’s always a mixed emotions month for me, as it means back to work after always having the summer off. This year it seems to be proving especially hard as I am leaving the Frugal Baby again after having so much time with him and making more memories. It really has been lovely …
August Aims
Happy Wednesday everyone! The end of August already; this month has absolutely flown by in the Frugal Cottage household. I have been lucky enough to have been off work for the entire month, and it has felt like I’m back on maternity leave with the Frugal Baby. August marked the month he turned one, and …

As I continue along the relatively new path of investing, I thought I should update my portfolio page on here and update my lovely readers about what I have been investing in lately. I am putting our hard earned cash into companies that will then pay me for owning a small part of their company. In …

Hello Monday! This marks the last full week of my holidays, which are seemingly flying over way too fast. It is always the same, that when you are not at work, the time goes by even more quickly than when you’re there. I have had a wonderful time at home with the Frugal Baby and …
