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.

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 …

My favourite time of the month again – it’s time to update the Ultimate Dream Fund! It seems to come round faster and faster each time, but I’m not complaining. After a bit of a disappointing June, July has been much more positive and I’m very pleased with the progress this month. I think that investing …
I cannot believe it’s August already! I know they say that time goes faster the older you get, but this is ridiculous. Our little boy turns 1 on Sunday, and it truly has been the fastest year of my life so far. How have I got a 1 year old already?! We’re having a little …
