Okay so I have been MIA for the past few days and to be honest I’m pretty mad at myself about it. I love coming on here and talking to people who have different opinion and sometimes better outlooks on my situation than I do. So let me tell you all what’s been going on... I have been really struggling in my job as of late, I do what I love as a job and I loved my job... loved... so I have been thinking about this decision for a long time. My boss has become disconnected, disinterested and most certainly I invested in her business, and her staff. I feel for her, she has taken on too much at the one time in order to distract herself from some pretty bad things going on in her life... and I get it, because I too take on too much when I am trying to distract myself from something. So when I started I was promised the world, lots of new experiences, lots of education and a welcoming and supporting boss.. and well none of it really happened. So here I am. In a job, away from my home in a job that is not giving me what I thought I would receive.. and I could have got this kind of job at home. So I am spending money on petrol and food and other living costs away from home for a job that hasn’t turned out to be what I thought it was going to be... As expected when giving notice 2 months before Christmas on an industry that is very busy at that time of year, my boss was pissed off to say the least. I was polite and tried my absolute best to end things on a god note but her reaction was not as polite. anyway, what is all of your best advice on applying for new jobs and things to include in your resume? I have no idea how to be confident through paper!! Help!! P.S. love to all of you having troubles with your bosses, I hope it gets better x

Who else has a credit card that you can collect points on? ••• My credit card 💳 gives me 1 point for every $1 spent. I’ve currently racked up >12 000 points (5000 which I was gifted as my cc was sent to the wrong address at first 🙄). I am waiting to redeem the points for flights and/or something I need. Do you find the point system worth it?

Hi, my insta name is Frugal me Free, erm I'm an ex people pleaser and things took a turn on Wednesday. On Wednesday I was threatened with a invoice from a angry plumber because I called off the appointment 5 minutes towards the end of the hour slot. Prior to the booking, I explained if the rearranged appointment was to go ahead between 6-7 then it would need to be over by 7 as my son has school and this is his bedtime. Guess what, 18:52 came and he still wasn't here, bare in mind the job takes 30 minutes. I texted and said let's rearrange as this is now too late. A call came 2 minutes later and he said "He's 4 minutes away".... So wait, because you have arrived at 6:58 I should let the appointment continue even though i explained I would be unavailable from 7 because my son has bedtime on a school night??? World war 3 happened and now I am threatened with a invoice, not received it as yet but it's funny how money is used as a weapon all the time. It's funny how the minute somthing goes wrong or there's some negative energy money is used to punish the other person. If you CHOOSE to make a decision that's up to you, don't expect anyone to suffer because of the decision YOU made. We are not entitled to anything in this world and I most certainly don't expect anything from anyone. I can name many instances of other relationships in my life where people have chosen to do something and expect things from myself. They don't ask they just dictate. I'm hitting 30 now, I don't care anymore, they has to be a level of mutual respect and consideration. We live in a world where people react because of I I I, "I drove here from....", "I'm just round the corner" I... But before reacting did they consider the other person? How does this affect them? Should my 5 year old be tired and have a long day at school because the plumber decided to come late??Moral of the story, don't let peoples choices negatively impact you and as a result don't be surprised if money is used in some form to hurt you

🐑 DIY Woolie Dryer Balls 🐑 Woolie balls are a healthy alternative to the chemical laced fabric softeners and dryer sheets on the market today. They also save on drying time as they absorb the dampness from your laundry! 💗 What you’ll need to make 4 balls: 1 ball of 100% wool yarn 3.5 oz 4-6 oz wool roving Felting needle (I used size 36) Darning needle Scissors Cloth measuring tape 4 pieces of scrap yarn Nylons/pantyhose/stockings Wrap some yarn around & around your fingers and slide it off when you have a good amount to start your ball. Continue wrapping your yarn all the way around your starter ball until it measures approximately 7 inches. Using your darning needle, weave and sew your yarn ‘tail’ into the ball. Pull off 1 foot sections of your roving and wrap those all the way around your ball, felting as you go to secure each piece in place. (There are lots of tutorials on #YouTube on DIY woolie balls & felting, please check them out if you are new to felting like I am! 😉) Do this until your ball is approximately 12 inches in size. Repeat this process until you have your 4 balls! Place each one into a leg of the pantyhose and tie tightly in-between with a piece of scrap yarn. Place them into the wash when you do a load of whites as you want these done in hot water and toss them into the dryer along with the rest of your load until your clothes (etc.) are dry. Cut off the yarn scraps, remove the pantyhose and you’re done!! Easy~peasy!! 👏 Keep these in your dryer at all times and use them until the cows come home! 😊 PLEASE NOTE: I do NOT recommend using essential oils on your dryer balls as this could be a potential fire hazard! 🔥💀

I have been having a huge clear out recently, downsizing my belongings and only keeping what I use, love and need. It has certainly paid off. Sadly I can't put this towards for 10k goal as it's gone towards doing work to the house, but I have much more to do which I can put towards it, I need to clear the loft. I'm amazed at how much everything has gone for. I was going to take it all to a car boot to get rid but this way I'm a lot better off. #frugal #debtfree #saving #saving10k #money #cheapliving #cheap #finances #spending #frugalliving #ebay #clearout #minimalism

Has anyone ever used this as deodorant?...... I have! So I bought this from @deciem back in July after reading reviews etc and some of the reviews did not like it for skincare but had started using it in replacement of deodorants. So since July I have been using on my face (which I love) but also using as deodorant everyday....... And I have to say it works!!!!!!!! I'm not saying after a workout etc you won't smell but as an everyday replacement, it's fab! It's natural, no aerosols, not tested on animals etc and lasts for ages!(this is still my 1st bottle) At only £6.80 it's a steal 💰 P. S This is not an an ad and just my personal opinion 😊

My grocery shop....FOR THE WEEK! Lately my partner and I have been spending waaay too much money on groceries ever since we have gotten back from our holiday so this week I put my foot down. I wrote an inventory of my pantry, fridge and freezer and I “shopped” my food supplies trying to come up with meals that required one or no extra ingredients. Safe to say I succeeded, with the total cost for the week equalling around $20 per person. . . . #motivation #frugal #frugalliving #money #savingmoney #savings #cheap #easy #shopping #groceries #food #haul #week #weekend #inspiration #finance #couple #woolworths #woolworthsfood

Has anyone else started their Christmas shopping ?!?! If you have a big or small family to buy for this approaching festive period I can’t tell you how important it is to start shopping for Christmas at least three months before, otherwise where is the extra £200/£500/£1000 going to come from!? Between me and Rob we have 21 people to buy presents for (that’s only counts close family and not friends!) so it is imperative to start now Now! I’ve been in the position far too many times where it is the gloomiest January because not only is it for most full time employees the longest every wait till pay day the December pay can often be known to be spent on last minute gifts leaving you extremely stuck!! ❤️❤️ • • #christmas #saving #frugal #organised #savingjourney #christmaspresents #christmasshopping #firsttimehomebuyer #firsttimebuyer #londoner #festive #startearly #save #savewithme #frugalliving

Okay... I may have done something most of you will consider too far but I love it • I’ve started using an app called Stylebook where you take photos of ALL your items of clothing and log them in different categories. It’s a slog at first but once your articles are logged you can see at a glance where you have too much stuff (and declutter!) and where you have gaps • You can also plan outfits the night before work or even select which items you’re going to pack for a holiday • I was really worried that budgeting meant I would never enjoy shopping again. But if anything I love it more because I can open up my app before I go into a shop a know what I need and what I have. That way I won’t fall into old traps • Not sponsored or collaborated with @stylebookapp - I just love it 😊

Being frugal in the kitchen can often lead to wonderful culinary discoveries, and also a whole lot of fun! We had 20lt of beautiful unhomogenized Jersey milk on hand that was past it’s best, so instead of letting it go to waste - we made cheese! I’d set out to make ricotta, but soon discovered that the natural rennet still present in the milk caused the curds to develop stringy strains and before I knew it, I was squeezing out balls of fresh mozzarella! What a delight! And how perfectly timed with our first harvest of tomatoes and fresh sweet basil from the garden! . Yes, you guessed it - Caprese is on the menu! 🍅

Ok guys.. seriously kicking myself for not thinking of this 2 months ago! I've found natural and wonderful toxin free alternatives to most everything in the baby world. However, there has been one struggle... #. . . . WIPES! . . . I've learned there are two kinds of wipes, chemical ridden ones or the ones that don't smell like a thing. I've been dying for some essential oil infused wipes. . . . When Evy and I received this wipe morning earlier this week as a gift I was reading the side and thinking.. THIS THING IS GENIUS!!! . . . I now can get a half cup of warm water, add in 4 drops of serenity essential oil and BAMN! No more dried out wipes, no more screaming baby from cold wipes on her tushy and hello lavender + roman chamomile. 😍😍 #heaven. . . . Pretty sure I can safely say we will be going through a bottle of serenity a month. This stuff is gold!! #serenityoneverything . . . Lavender is another oil that would be soothing to sweet baby skin and also relaxing to both mama and baby. Who is going to try out this awesome idea?! 🙋🏼 . . . . #parenthood #parenthood_moments #essentialoils #momlife #girlmom #happybaby #happymom #lifesecret #lifehacks #simpleliving #frugal #frugalliving #recipes #diy #doterra

Popped into our local ikea to check out their 40% sale that is happening until this Sunday. Our ikea didn’t seem to have as many sales as some others that I have seen online but was still able to pick up a bargain. In hubby’s words “we would be stupid not to buy those glasses so cheap” 😂😂 they are gorgeous smaller glasses and and at 6 for $4 we couldn’t pass them up. Did you pick up a discount this weekend? . . . . . . . . . #frugal #frugalliving #frugallife #debtfree #debtfreecommunity #savings #savingforfuture #savvy #budget #budgetlife #budgetmum #list #organized #mummy #mummyblogger #budgeting #list #todo #gettingitdone #clean #clearance #clearancefinds #ikea #ikeaaustralia

Discovering on this #secondhandshopping only drive that if I wait long enough, exactly what I need will appear. Just when I’m about to resort to eBay (and the postage that entails) to buy sleepsuits for Liv, the charity shop suddenly has a couple of barely-worn John Lewis ones in her size for £1.99 each. When I’m starting to think I’ll never find the jeans I need second hand, a pair of brand new H&M ones turn up for £6. Once I’ve established I need something I like getting it sorted and ticked off NOW, but in trying to reduce my spending and impact I’m also learning the satisfaction of patience too. And that’s mega. I am not patient.

I really like that we took these M&D lacing beads from our puzzle rotation and added them to our loose parts. This adds a whole other level to their use! Sectioned compartments encourage sorting practice and they ended up stacking, sorting, lacing, and working on their numbers 😊 There are also a few parts from an M&D tool box in there that work great for lacing. . . . #repurpose #reuse #recycle #ethicaltoys #thrifty #frugal #openendedplay #looseparts #loosepartsplay #childledlearning #vegan #thethriftynursery #thriftstorehaul #secondhandtoys #woodentoys #woodtoys #reuseartstore #repurposedtoys #monkeypods #educational #patterns #colorsorting #shapesorting #sizesorting #rainbows #counting #lacing #Waldorf #reggioemilia #melissaanddoug

I realized the other day that with the new 3 sectioned, long monkey pod my mom had scored us while thrifting, I now had a large and a small that were like that, and wouldn't that be perfect for size sorting! ❤️👌❤️ . I set this up and we finally got around to it this morning. I gave them a little guidance to give them an idea of using the small tray VS big tray for the small and big parts, but otherwise let them do their own thing. I gave them 3 very different types of parts, each with 2 sizes, so that we also had colors, textures, and shapes for them to sort and play with. My daughter had been putting feathers into the beads so I pulled out a bunch more for them to mess around with 😊 . . . #repurpose #reuse #recycle #ethicaltoys #thrifty #frugal #openendedplay #looseparts #loosepartsplay #childledlearning #vegan #thethriftynursery #thriftstorehaul #haul #secondhandtoys #woodentoys #woodtoys #reuseartstore #repurposedtoys #monkeypods #educational #patterns #colorsorting #shapesorting #sizesorting #rainbows #Waldorf #reggioemilia

Nothing can prepare you for it 😱 This has been the second hardest part of motherhood for me. When evening comes and you’ve had a long day, you can’t reassure yourself that a good sleep will restore you and you’ll be energised in the morning! Nor will you get unbroken sleep the next night, or the next week, or month, or maybe year! We’ve been following Midwife Cath’s bedtime routine, whereby my husband baths, feeds and puts our baby to sleep at around 10.30pm. It has been such a lifesaver! I feed until about 9pm (depending on when he wakes up), then go to sleep and won’t need to wake up until 2 or 3am. Then the baby next wakes between 5am and 7am, so I’ve only got one true middle of the night feed 👏🏼 This has worked so well for us, and it means I can get a decent stretch of sleep, which most of you would understand is sacred!

We started something new yesterday! Story themed crafts ❤️📖❤️ . We made our bunny ears into horns and used some elastic, streamers, and string/yarn for the tails, connecting the elastic ends with a bit of duct tape. They enjoy going through this book and finding the parts on themselves but since they lack horns and tails, I thought why not make them some so they can do the whole thing! This one ended up more me doing it than I'd planned because they were all around excited about life at the time so they picked everything out but I couldn't hold their attention long enough to have them tie the strings on etc. 😂 They had fun with them and my daughter wore hers for a good bit. We plan to do a book themed craft for at least 3 days out of the week! I'd love to do it every day, we shall see 😉😊 . . . #repurpose #reuse #recycle #ethicaltoys #thrifty #frugal #openendedplay #looseparts #loosepartsplay #ethical #vegan #thethriftynursery #secondhandtoys #reuseartstore #repurposedtoys #Waldorf #reggioemilia #artsandcrafts #books #crafts #sandraboynton #DIYcostume

Made the hard decision to sell my car! It's my only debt and we're trying so hard to save up a house deposit it's holding us back. My partner has an 2008 ford ranger which just sits in the drive way (he also has a company car) so it made sense to sell mine & I just drive that as it's getting no use. I'm a little emotional as I love this car BUT I want a house more. Fingers crossed I can get a good price 🤞🏻☺️

So those $10 I was refunded the other day? Yeah, they just helped with completely paying off my CC balance🙌🏽 I was SO tempted to use those $10 to go feed my Starbucks addiction🙄but I’m focused on being intentional with my money bc I owe it to myself, LITERALLY! I’ve gone too long with making the mistake of using my CC for little purchases here & there or for purchases I considered to be “Emergency” items. What are the steps I’m taking to combat the urge to pull out my CC & Pay?▪️Assess: IF I CANT BUY IT IN CASH, I DON’T NEED IT! Lol ▪️Cut that plastic ALLL THE WAY UP! *Fat Joe voice* ▪️Establish an Emergency fund- & really use it for EMERGENCY situations ONLY! ▪️Last but NOT least, pat myself on the back for any financial milestone I hit, BIG or small.

Buying reduced meat is a great way to save a huge chunk of money off your weekly grocery bill. Today I’m defrosting chicken wings that I bought about 3 weeks ago for just $3.75 reduced from $8.50 😍 Our freezer is stacked with a variety of reduced meat currently and it’s a good feeling knowing that I have enough meat on hand for the next two weeks 😁 The current freezer stash is worth $48.75 and I paid only $27.82! That’s a total saving of $20.93 👏🏼 • • • #eatforless #neverpayfullprice #savingmoney #smallwins #food #winning #frugal #frugalliving #tips #bargain #bargainhunter #meat #chicken #reduced #reducedhaul #dinner #lunch #groceryshopping #groceries #debtfreecommunity

Thanks to last week's Costco run, and a 10% discount courtesy of my Woolies credit card, this week's groceries were only $58! . . We don't buy packaged food; we don't buy pre-made convenience foods. We have a huuuge selection of dried herbs, spices, and sauces, and cook really simple meals. Buying almost entirely fresh food helps us keep our grocery costs low. We don't have a pantry or fridge full of food; we buy what we need for the week and it pretty much all gets eaten by our next shop. . Last week's Hello Fresh meals were so tasty that we're doing a bootleg HF box by nicking all this week's meals from their website! . Lunches are leftovers from the night before, breakfasts are still oats, and snacks are still yogurt, fruit and miso soup. Now that spring got bullied into submission by Summer, I see a lot of overnight oats, fruit and yogurt in my future. . #budgeting #mealplanning #debtfree #debtfreecommunity #ozdebtfreecommunity #frugal #frugality #frugalliving #budget #debtfreeaustralians #debtfreejourney #minimalism #healthy #freshfood

My son's favourite pants are his 'patch pants'- old slacks that I patched the holey knees over with cut offs from my old jeans, and stitched with linen thread. He loves them so much that he specifically requests them most days! Who would have known that mending boring old slacks would improve them so much!! It's a perfect example of the japanese philosophy #wabisabi which appreciated the wear and tear in objects and beauty in imperfection.

Achieving a debt free life means making sacrifices. It can also mean no ☕️, vacations, birthday 🎁, getting your 💅 done and eating out. To some people this may sound like a life not worth living, but you need to realize that it’s only temporary. . When we decided we wanted to pay off our credit card debt ASAP we cut out a lot of things. Now we can buy what we want (within reason), go on more vacations 🚢 and save for our kids’ futures. . Knowing that we can pay our 💳 statement in full each month is a blessing. Some months are harder than others but we do it. . Our next obstacle is paying off our condo mortgage and figuring out what to do about our 🏠 mortgage. .
