Are you eco-frugal?
Hey everyone how are you? I was on holiday last week hence not checking in. If you would like to see what I have been up too generally here is a little vlog I made
A little catch-up!
In terms of budgeting though I have a few additional things to share with you that I have been exploring this week I have been trying to be eco-frugal
Hair removal at home
We all have different views and methods on hair removal but if it something you like to do and want to do permanently this ins a really good at-home option that will save you a lot of money on salon costs. Do take a look at my Silk ‘n Infinity review
Saving money reads
I have been reading about ways to save money on school supplies (good to think ahead!) you absolutely DON’T need all things new so the first and most important thing is to take stock of what you have already.
Budget ideas for the kids!
If you are looking for fun things to do with the kids over the summer I have to recommend my book Create Your Own Happy is packed with free and fun things for your child to do over the summer holidays, costs under £7 and is designed to boost their happiness. A great investment for the 6 weeks off!
I have been thinking a lot recently about cheap stuff which of course budgeters want and I have also been thinking about sustainability. The 2 often do not go hand in hand, do they? But they can. I am going to try where possible to marry up a thrifty approach with an eco one. I hope you will happily join me on this important journey and bear with me as I explore and make mistakes along the way.
Second hand September

Help people and the planet – and pledge to say no to new clothes for 30 days

(Thanks to my sister for inspiring me and to Thrifty Mum for telling me about this)
