This is a guest post by Perry from Stupid Is The Norm – enjoy! – Nicola   I want to become wealthy. There. I’ve said it. It’s undeniable. It’s not for any altruistic reason. I don’t want to save the planet or anything. I want to become wealthy because I’m sick of work, and I …
I don’t know if it is just me, but 2017 has gone by fast. And our lives are going to be changed again any day now with the arrival of Frugal Baby #2. But, as 2017 winds down, it’s natural to think ahead to the new year. What is 2018 going to bring? What challenges …

Why You Need To Start Saying Yes
This post comes from quite a personal place. I had the immense privilege to do some filming with Steph McGovern and the BBC on Monday. Yes, you read that right! Steph, plus a producer and a camera man came to our house to film. Mr FC, Frugal Baby, my mum and I sat at our …
Quite  a few of the searches that bring people to the Frugal Cottage are about food. Specifically, how to save money on food. And as food prices continue to rise, it’s going to become more and more of a problem.   So, I thought I’d do a round up of my favourite money saving tips …
As the end of the year quickly approaches, most people’s thoughts turn to the holiday season ahead. We’re definitely looking at that, along with preparing for Frugal Baby #2 arriving and the new year beginning. It’s also a time to reflect on the year that has passed. How fast is 2017 going so far?!
