Hi there! I absolutely love, love, love living a frugal lifestyle. I don't have a high paying job, nor do I want one - I prefer to live on what I have. Except for my mortgage, which will be my companion for a good many years, I am almost debt free, and proud of that fact. I live with 3 dogs, 4 cats and a rat, and have my own personal flock of wild birds in the front garden. I started out by being as green as possible, conserving water and power and growing my own veg, and suprisingly it led to me also being as frugal as possible. I don't follow fashion, or need fancy holidays- I'd rather charity shop and go camping! (Not at the same time, I hasten to point out!) I do have one vice though - coffee! My big treat is to meet my best friend for a 'posh coffee' once in a while - my budget will let me stretch to that occassionally!
