#The Frugaldom Project

As we progress through winter, thoughts turn to preparing the land for whatever food we are going to try and grow and I've decided to learn more about how to grow rhubarb.

The world, according to Frugaldom, is a complete package. We have all we need to create all that we want and if we break it, we have the wherewithal to fix it. Nothing is fake, everything is real - just take the time to look into this amazing frugal bubble that is our world. It's like the life of pie!

Happy New Year to all fans, friends and followers of Frugaldom, the Frugal Living Challenge and the Frugaldom Project! Here we are, once again, embarking on a fresh journey of discovery, forever in search of self-sustainability. Join us on our adventurous quest for financial freedom.

Today began frosty with icy roads and frozen puddles, but it remained dry for most of the day and allowed us time to start decorating the Frugaldom festive tree.

Weather comes to us free in every way, shape and form possible. Here in Scotland, we can get everything in the one day - rain, hail, sleet, snow, fog, wind and sunshine. We can't control the weather but we can prioritise our spending to weather any financial storms. smiley

What is frugal living? This is a question I am still being asked, as it still comes as something new to many. It is NOT self-imposed poverty or about trying to live like Tom and Barbara in 'The Good Life'. It's about balancing your life with your income in a safe and sustainable way. This is where my frugal living adventure has taken me so far...

15 Years down the road and round the bend but not quite over the hill... Our satirical 'Woman Zone' columns first appeared in print in 1999. Those responsible for the rants, raves and ramblings included Shona Prophett, the Bishop, Rosemary, Eddie Elwood, Jordan, Millie May, Agnes and Senga... names that many of you may recognise and characters some of you met.

In between the rain, the hail, the sleet and the snow, we finally got some blue sky and sunshine at Frugaldom, so it was all hands on deck to get more of our 'World War 1 Centenary Woodland' trees planted.

Phase 3 of our planting began this month with the arrival of our next tree pack from the Woodland Trust, after being awarded a place in their World War 1 Centenary Woodland project last year.

Environmental art, fuel and food foraging, preserving and preparing for the winter - that's what autumn is all about - being prepared. How to make crabapple and rosehip jelly is a handy skill to have, especially as the recipe can be adapted into foraged or hedgerow jelly.
