Goodbye September! I can’t believe it’s already over. How fast did that go?! Although it feels like I’ve lost the last week of the month due to contracting a horrible sickness bug. I don’t remember the last time I have been that ill. For the first 24 hours I struggled to keep water down, never …
At the end of August, I posted about wanting to do a No Spend Month. In fact, I posted hoping others would join me! The main reason why I wanted to try a No Spend Month is because our spending was going up. On little things, here and there. Food spending going up. All the …

Another Ultimate Dream Fund update! I am so happy to be able to continue to post about our journey. Although we are in the early stages, it’s still a huge factor in our decisions. We can see the impact of our spending in our saving habits. At the end of each month I can clearly …
Hello September! As much as I sound like a cliche, I love the colder months. I’m looking forward to jumper weather! Although, as August weather-wise was so poor, I’m hoping that September is better. Only so that me and Frugal Baby can get out and do some things whilst we can.   Talking of Frugal …
