The first month of 2016 seems to have flown by; it doesn’t seem two minutes since it was Christmas and now it’s the end of January already! January has been relatively quiet for us in the Frugal Cottage household; nothing much as happened and we’ve just been spending quality time with the Frugal Baby. January …
I thought I’d do another Life Update post, as I haven’t done one since September! A lot of things have changed during that time, so it’s definitely time for an update.   The Frugal Baby is now (almost) six months old, and boy does time fly. He’s not quite mastered the art of rolling over …
It’s Monday which means it’s meal plan time. This post is a little later than planned today, as we’ve had a bit of a rough day. The Frugal Baby developed a purple rash on his legs this morning, so I rang 111 to speak to a NHS advisor. They said to take him straight to A&E …
Hello Sunday! I’ve not done a weekend edition in ages, purely due to the fact I haven’t really had the time to write one. The Frugal Baby has taken to waking up every hour during the night, so I’m walking about in a bit of a daze most of the time at the moment. I …

I know that eating the same sort of meals week in, week out is …

My second online income report! I’m still in a bit in shock that I’m actually writing about earning money online. Granted, the numbers are small and I have a long way to go until I’m earning a decent income, but it’s a start. And everyone has to start somewhere, right? Long before I started this …
Another week means another meal plan. I feel like we’re getting in a bit of a rut when it comes to meals at the moment; I need to dig out my recipe books and try something new. Has anyone got a favourite, healthy recipe that you wouldn’t mind sharing? I know that eating the same …
I don’t normally post on a Saturday, but this is an offer than could run out at any time, so I’m posting it now.   Do you spend time posting on forums? I’m a member of quite a few, and spend a lot of time reading and commenting on threads. And, for a limited time …
