I’m the first to admit that I’m a fan of loyalty cards. I can earn points which then gets me money off/vouchers? Okay, count me in! In fact, I probably have the majority that the UK market has to offer, if I look into my purse.   A loyalty card scheme often has one of …
Another week has gone by, almost as fast as the last one. Work has been particularly busy tis week so I’m glad it is the weekend. I’ve found my shoulder to be quite achey this week and I’ve struggled doing some things, so it was been a bit testing at times. I don’t think it’s …
I hadn’t even heard of tea loaf before I met my (now) husband, but it gets made quite often in our house now. It is a simple recipe with doesn’t contain any fat at all so it would be good as a low fat pudding. There is quite a bit of sugar though!   Ingredients: …
As someone who has a lot of goals in life, I have pretty high expectations of myself. I want to get things done, I want to do them well and I want to be as efficient as possible.   Humans beings naturally want to do well. We crave praise, deep down, so that we know …
This week has been much better; my arm is out of the sling and I can do more around the house and at work. I will still need to be very careful for a while – it’ll take 6 weeks for it to heal completely so I just need to remember not to do too …

As I have mentioned before, as part of our ultimate dream, we require a passive income per year of approximately £25,000. In that post, I talk about having enough money in savings to just withdraw money as and when we need it, but recently I keep thinking about different options to make our dream a …
I don’t know about anyone else, but I have found this week to go by so slowly. It probably hasn’t helped that I have been restricted in what I can do at work as I’ve had my arm in a sling all week, but each day seems to have dragged a lot. There is a …
In this world we are geared to having things. Whether that’s buying things, having things, just accumulating stuff over the years. We need shelter, clothing, food and water as a basic start. But all the extra additions are just luxuries. All the items we are told that we need to own to show our social …
As someone who is trying to live a frugal lifestyle, and get my money to go as far as it possibly can, there are certain traits I think I have that make me a frugal person. Living frugally means I can have a good life that I can afford, but it doesn’t mean sacrificing lots …
