Because I'm #frugal and kinda #crafty decided to make a #harrypotter style #platform9and3quarters decoration (for under $2.00) for my young man's #birthdayparty tomorrow. $1 vinyl shower curtain, .50c sponge, some leftover red craft #paint we had in the art supply box, and .20c for white poster board with black paint. 1 tip I didn't think about: wear gloves LOL Hopefully my hands won't stay pink for long.

My 5 year old's spending money for our camping trip for the next few days. He had his birthday recently and received some money as gifts. Most went into his account, but I kept a little out for him. It's so important to teach children about money, saving and budgeting. Start with little steps and build on it with them as they grow.

Kathryn @doitonadime is full of wisdom! She helped her friend organise a high traffic area in her home this week and she had some great tips. - You can be organised but still have way too much clutter. I know! I used to be an organised hoarder. - Kathryn suggests to aim for simplicity. When you need to access things, particularly in high traffic areas, you’re not going to mess it up and have to spend time rearranging it. - If you can easily access what you need then the area will be helpful and not stressful.

Wow, this is shocking to me 😳 Australians are only saving 2.1% of their household incomes! Even the peak of the graph is only just over 10%. Personally we aim to save at least 50% of our monthly take home pay (we use this money towards investing). What % of your incomes do you all save? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To work the percentage out, find out how much money you save in a month. Multiply this by your NET monthly income (your take home pay) and times this figure by 100. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Example: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Say you saved $1,000 last month, and your take home pay was $4,000. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1,000 divided by $4,000 = 0.25 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 0.25 x 100 = 25% ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I think these Aussies need to find the #debtfreecommunity asap!

I've been researching a ton on fashion and different types of wardrobes, styles, and purchasing habits that make a big difference. • TBH- I tried capsule wardrobes and Project 333 and failed. 😆 • Instead, what I'm learning is that the method of fashion I'm interested in is called slow fashion. • SLOW FASHION This is basically the exact opposite of fast fashion and focuses on ethical supply chain, fair wages, quality items built to last. The downside is this can cost significantly more. • FAST FASHION Typically inexpensive items that are produced quickly. Quality may or may not be great, but it just depends on the items. • It's so interesting to me! What do you prefer?🤔

I've been kinda quiet on the wedding front as we couldn't decide what type of wedding we wanted and found alot of the packages abroad would charge you alot just because it was a wedding. I felt like we were going round in circles!! We have decided we are defos tieing the knot next year but we are’nt going to venture abroad. We’re staying close to home and if there is spare cash, well have a #minimoon too!

Does this meal look familiar? Yup, I know, me too -- it's leftovers of leftovers of leftovers that I'm eating for 3rd or 4th time. I must admit, I'm somewhat less excited about them today than I was the first time I had them -- that's the trouble with leftovers. The trick is to keep them interesting by adding new flavors or condiments each time you revisit them, for instance by dusting them with Parmesan, as here. Cooking dishes you *really like* helps, too, because even though the initial thrill may be gone, they're still perfectly tasty. Another trick for when my leftovers meal lacks culinary excitement is to focus on its #nutritional #benefits. This modest meal boasts three (!!!) servings of #vegetables (not counting the #fennel , #onions , #garlic and #tomatoes in the pasta dish) and with them, a truckload of gut-friendly #polyphenols and #fiber. Boring but healthy! Friday is usually my use-it-or-lose-it day when I finish leftovers and throw out any old bits and bobs lurking in my fridge. It's also the day I write my Meal Plan for the following week, so it's always exciting to make space in the fridge for fresh, new, exciting meals. Watch this space! ☺️ #mealplanning #leftovers #pasta #asparagus #spinach #italiansausage @bouldersausage #mediterranean #diet #frugal #nutrientdense #ruleofthirds

Today was my first day back at my biggest side hustle. I provide childcare during the school year. . . I’ve been worried how it will go with readjusting to schedules and environment, but it’s been awesome! 🙌🏼. All three kids are currently napping and I am having some much needed alone time. . . We are so looking forward to the extra income helping us on our #debtfreejourney. . . #debtfreecommunity #debtfreejourney # #debtfreeliving #debtfree #debtfreegoals #debtfreedom #frugal #frugalliving #sidehustle #babysteps #babystep2

Literally my husband to me every day. Thankfully, he's and excellent cook when I complain about how there's nothing to eat.

Story Time: My hubby & I DESPERATELY needed new glasses (last time we updated them was over 3 years ago) So we made an appointment at “for eyes” and we have been dreadingggg it because we know how expensive new frames are! So we went hoping we could walk out with 2 pairs of glasses for under $200. The copay alone was $40 😓 We each found glasses we liked for $100, only to find out we have to pay for lenses too... which is another $50+ EACH 😭😭 This is our first time buying our own glasses since we’ve only been married a year & before now our parents paid for them. I felt sick when I thought of spending close to $400 in one day... I thought of all the money we could be putting towards our debt snowball/ saving. So we looked at each other & decided to walk away from the designer frames & get cheaper ones online. I am happy to say I found a great alternative! Swipe to see the $100 kate spade frames I looked at in store vs. the $6 & $16 dupes I can get online & legit save HUNDREDS. Although the pushy salesman made me feel bad😣 I am relieved we won’t be spending $400 on glasses. Has anyone else purchased from Zenni Optical/ another online discount glasses store? I am excited to receive my new glasses in the mail & try them out! Also I’m just relieved that we saved so much money & now it can be put to our debt snowball!! 💵❄️ #frugal #ballinonabudget #debtfreecommunity #debtfreestruggles

Our superhero! Yesterday we celebrated my hubz birthday! 🎉 as a child my siblings and I never celebrated birthdays because of our religion. Growing older I only celebrate it for the kids and when we celebrate it now, again it’s for the kids. Each birthday we celebrate I am just blessed we’re healthy, alive another year to watch them grow. My dad was only 55 and my mother was 42 when they both lost the battle to cancer. Time flies and in another 7 years I’ll be 42 (😩😩) Honestly though, I don’t ever want to imagine the thought of leaving my kids behind. I don’t ever want them to feel what I’ve felt or witness the pain my parents were in. Love with all your heart. Take care of yourself. Go to the Doctors. Enjoy life. Forgive. Never be too busy for your family 💕 #leoseason #happybirthdayhusband #birthday #fridaymood

I love being frugal & finding deals. My mom always taught me to pull over if I see something. (Which now I realize isn’t a good way of thinking...) but due to Facebook & other apps, sometimes I come across **FREE** items that can help organize my own space. • • This cub shelf was free. I was looking for a solution for not having a dresser for the baby’s clothes. This serves that purpose! & doesn’t take up to much room. • • I already had the tan fabric baskets that I had been storing in our closet. The black fabric baskets I bought today to put the baby’s clothes. Onesies, sleep sacks, birth cloths, etc.. The black basket in the middle that I’ll fill with baby socks. • I’m very happy with this find! #free , #frugal #frugalliving

I am so disappointed in my black women because you still go to other races and cultures to get your nails done, to buy your hair, to buy your clothes, shoes, pocketbooks and other products and services. If you’re going to spend, will you please find us, the businesswomen and businessmen that will offer you the same services so that you can keep the money in our race so we can flourish. They will not spend 1 quarter with you. They take their money and they spend with each other and that’s how they get the increase. And the ones that hire you, they know that you are increasing their wealth and they are paying you pennies for the millions that they are making. My black women please wake up please!!! #wakeup #staywoke #wake #up #black #women #blackwomen #please

I have really slacked on posting this week because we've been cleaning almost everything at our house. Deep cleaning, organizing, and my favorite part... Getting rid of🤗 Growing up, I did a lot of shopping at thrift stores and I try to go even more now! Since then, I feel it's time to give back what I don't use. I've got the whole family involved and this is just a small portion of our donations. There are many other ways you can declutter and many options for where it can all go. Needy local families, crisis centers, shelters, and thrift stores are a few that are in need. And it doesn't have to be just clothing and household items. Go through your pantry, see what you honestly won't use or eat and donate those! If anything, going through it all can give you an eye opener of what you have. (I found out that I have so many outfits that haven't been worn in months😂) Happy Friday everyone!🌷 #budget #budgeting #donate #thriftstore #thrifting #thriftstorefinds #thrifty #friyay #friday #frugal #frugalliving #frugallife #debtfree #savemoney #savingmoney #savings #debtfreecommunity #giveback

Fermented tomato paste. Conserva cruda di pomodoro. Instructions from Sandor Katz’s The Art of Fermentation. I made this paste in October 2017. It sits in a jar in my cupboard. I made it because I hated having to open a can just for a tablespoon. And I really liked the idea of using only two ingredients, tomatoes and salt. Mother Nature provides the wild fermentation. . . Chop up a bunch of tomatoes. It doesn’t matter how much. You’ll end up with maybe 10% of the original weight in paste. Put the tomatoes in a container but leave space for fermentation. I have a 4 quart cylindrical plastic container that I filled to below the 3 quart mark. I squished the tomatoes by hand because I believe there’s good bacteria on my hands. (I also use my hands to mix injera and idli batters.) Cover the container with fabric to keep out insects. Mix the tomatoes twice a day for four or five days until fermentation stops. A white mold will appear on top. Mix it in. I was unsure about this last year but trusted in the century’s old tradition in Italy. If it freaks you out, don’t make it. The tomato solids will float to the top leaving clear liquid at the bottom. (I wonder if anyone uses it. I pour it on plants in my garden.) Use a food mill to remove the tomato skins and seeds. Put the remaining solids in butter muslin or a cotton bag and let hang for a day. Scrape off and discard any white mold from the outside of the bag. To remove even more liquid, press the pulp between two boards or improvise. Put a weight on top to squeeze out more liquid. After a few days, remove the weight and scrape out the pulp. Here’s the part that almost always freaks people out. Weigh the pulp. Add 25% of that weight in salt. Yes, it’s a lot. I’m not recommending that you use less, but people do. When you use the paste in a recipe, you might not need to add any other salt. After a few hours, knead the paste and put it in a jar. It doesn’t need to be refrigerated. I just took a small taste and it still tastes like salty concentrated tomatoes. . #tomatopaste @sandorkraut #wildfermentation #frugal #makeyourown #tomatoes #frommygarden #preservetheharvest #recipe

Buy what lasts the longest - not what is the cheapest • I’ve probably had 20+ scarves in my life and none have lasted as long as this classic cashmere Burberry Nova from @webuydesigner • There was a time where I would have purchased an item because it was the cheapest available but that’s a surprisingly expensive lesson to learn • It’s always better to buy 1 item that’s expensive that will last many years than the cheapest item that will break in months • FYI, this was £150 pre-loved but they retail for £395 AND @webuydesigner lets you trade in designer items towards a purchase so I only paid £40 • What have you purchased “for life”?

I love a #homemade pizza at the weekend. My goodness it’s a fiddly faff, but they taste so good, cost a fraction of a takeaway and I know EXACTLY what’s gone in it, right down to the preservative-free homemade dough base. All made using whatever we had in the fridge (peppers, onion, salami, ham, olives, sweetcorn. But I did buy some mozzarella especially). . . . . . #moneysaving #debtfreejourney #debtfreecommunity #everypennycounts #misspennymoney #budget #budgeting #savemoney #blogger #thriftyliving #frugalliving #frugalfood #cookfromscratch #moneysavingmeals #mealideas #thriftyfood #frugal #lovefood #food #foodporn #frugalfoodie #instafood #delicious #fridayfeels #tasty #moneysaver #foodlove #whatsfordinner #foodblogger

The other day... By the water 💦 Ik ben zo blij dat ik lekker dicht bij het water woon. Het geeft een soort rust, of je er nou in de zomer, de winter of in de maanden ertussen komt. Mijn outfit bestaat uit een lintje van de kringloop, een blouse van de WE (werkt aan/verkoopt fairtrade kleding), slippers die ik ooit van m'n zus gekregen heb en een onzichtbare spijkerbroek 😁 Ik wist niet zeker of ik dit moet posten, want ik ben niet helemaal overtuigd van dit blousje van de WE. Hij ziet er leuk uit en is +- fairtrade, maar... Het is soms zo moeilijk om te ontdekken of bedrijven "werken aan eerlijke kleding" (jaja..) of zich er écht voor inzetten. Also. Ik ben niet super enthousiast over de WE. Eerst wel, toen ik ontdekte dat zo'n grote winkel bezig was met eerlijke kleding en het ook nog eens betaalbaar was! Dat blijft heel fijn, maar helaas is de kwaliteit niet best 🤔 De zoektocht naar (nieuwe) betaalbare, eerlijke en duurzame kleding gaat door.. 🛍️ #duurzaam #fairtrade #sustainable #plasticfree #plasticvrij #fairfashion #eerlijkekleding #meakiproject #nostraw #minimalist #minimalisme #lowimpactmovement #verpakkingsvrij #tweedehandskleding #kringloop #frugal #bamboe #green #groen #besparen #goedkoop #duur #kringloop #clothesswap #clothesswapping #clothesswitch #lifestyle #lifestyleblogger #life #lifehack

I did it, I resigned from a toxic position. I left my full time position for a part time position at a sister facility (pays a little more, but less hours). I’m sure I’ll have to do more side hustle work, but that’s okay. My biggest concern was our health insurance and because I’m at a sister facility the coverage stays the same. 🙌🏽🙏🏽❤️ so thankful... #debtfreecommunity #familygoals #ourfiercejourney #daveramseybabysteps #debtfreejourney #zerobasedbudget #debtisdumb #financialfreedom #financialindependence #cashisking #intentionalliving #frugal #debtfreefamily #goaldigger #totalmoneymakeover #frugoal #goaldigger #babystep2 #liveyourlifenottheirs #debtsnowball #cashflow #gazelleintense

Dehydrating these apples for my son's camping trip. Some of these will added to the apples and cinnamon 'instant' oatmeal mix I will prepare in advance. Will also add cinnamon of course, along with chia seeds and hemp hearts. He will sweeten it with honey. When I saw the prices for the instant oatmeal in the stores, I figure I could make a better version, for less money. . . . #instantoatmeal #applecinnamon #homemade #kitchencreations #frugal #healthyfood #instafood #proteinoverload #breakfast #camping #liveinprevention

Question: Are you wasting money? here are a few ways you may be wasting money and you don’t even know it. . . 1. Not using cash back apps like Ibotta, fetch rewards. With Ibotta you earn money on qualifying items each time you scan a receipt. I’ve had Ibotta for about a week and I’ve earned $15 and I only need $5 until I can cash it out. . 2. Overspending on products because of the name. It could be shoes, hair products, clothes, etc, FOOD. I personally don’t bother buying the name brand on certain foods. If I am at walmart I will just get the great value and save ALOT. As far as shoes adidas, pumas, etc are way cheaper than NIKES and they’re just as comfortable. . 3. Buying food you don’t use. Think about it, you wouldn’t eat expired food would you? So In that case you have just wasted food. This week I bought 3 dinner options that I didn’t even eat. So guess what? Next week they will be on the menu. . 4. Spending on the latest gadgets. This includes upgrading your iPhone 6plus for the iPhone 7plus. They are the EXACT SAME. why would you do that? It just doesn’t make since. . 5. Not negotiating on your bills. THIS IS HUGE. About every 3-6 months my parents call their bills and threaten that they will be switching companies and almost 95% of the time they save hundreds. She was paying $300 for xfinity cable and WiFi and $50 for ADT alarm. She called xfinity and asked if they had alarm systems etc, long story short she pays $150 now for cable, WiFi, and alarm. That’s a $200 monthly saving. . .
