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 …

We’ve got some big expenses coming up this month as we begin our bathroom renovation, but all planned so hopefully nothing too unexpected crops up during the month.   Every month I like …
As I sit here and mull over September as a month, there have been some definite highs and lows, both financial and personal. As my day job begins to get more pressured, I’m learning the hard way how to keep myself organised and get tasks done before they become overwhelming.   September marks the fourth …
How can it be nearly the end of September already?! Before we know it, it’ll be Christmas, then the new year and a whole new set of aims to work out! As some of you know, if you’ve read my previous post, I’ve been feeling a little bit down this week. Lots of pressure at …
I probably shouldn’t be telling you this, but as this is my blog, I’m going to write this anyway. This probably is not the most positive post in the world, but it’s the truth and if I can’t write it here, where can I?   I’ll be honest, I’m a bit overwhelmed by life right now. …
