I am a 44 year old free spirited predominantly-vegan woman with a passion for frugality, culture, coffee, languages, yoga, travel, minimalist living and animals. I love being creative which is why being frugal is also fun for me!

5 Minute Mini Cinnamon RollsI came up with this when I had a craving for cinnamon rolls but didn't want to bake. Lay out as many pieces of bread that you want (each slice makes 4 mini rolls). Flatten the bread a little with your palm.

A stocking full of little gifts

How to Fill a Holiday Stocking for FreeStockings don't have to cost anything and are supposed to be filled with small trinkets and goodies, not things like $50 gift cards and iPods! Remember when we used to get clementines in there? What happened with that?

Cutting Cell Phone CostsI remember when cellphones came out. My dad had one in his car but most people didn't have one. I would walk down the street in the city I lived in at the time and saw these business people with them, they were the size of a walkie-talkie and very ugly-looking.


My Frugal Holiday: Planning Frugal GiftsHow to get through gift giving for the holidays without breaking the bank. I'm the first to admit I am one of the least organized people I know. That being said, when it comes to saving money I am a little less lazy than some people but don't get it confused with my terrible organization skills! When the weather starts getting cooler and the leaves are changing colours, it's always my cue to start preparing gifts for the holidays.

Save Those PenniesMany of us are living cheque to cheque and trying to make ends meet. How are we supposed to save money when we barely have enough as it is now for basic needs?



Coconut Body Scrub and Clay Body MaskI was browsing spa menus online and came across a coconut body scrub that cost $90 at the Spa. I thought to myself "Ok, I can do this myself for pennies!" Granted, my bathroom doesn't look like a fancy schmancy spa but I tried my best to make it look that way.
