London Travel Guide: Top Places To Stay for Under ₤50
Our journey from the start, as we try to create a frugal pony paradise from scratch so we can provide a more natural way of keeping the ponies at Frugaldom - barefoot with the freedom to roam.
Saturday the 19th March dawned crisp and bright, announcing the arrival of another glorious day. It's been amazing having a full week of sunshine, so the vitamin D levels have been suitably replenished and the Frugaldom yard is now full of ponies!
A few days of glorious weather has put some sun on ponies' backs, helped with tree planting, dried out the ground a bit and even seems to have encouraged the wildlife. But beer-making? What's that all about, I hear you ask?
Fine and sunny weather over the weekend allowed us all out to the field to play at den-building with the grand children. Work is always more of a game when it's fun and having the under 12's in charge of proceedings makes it interesting, to say the least!
Following a frugal regime during winter is never easy. It doesn't matter what anyone thinks or who agrees or disagrees with our lifestyle choices, it's always around February that we could happily crank up the heating and throw extra logs on the fire... or else pack up and head for warmer, drier climes!
Homemade Spicy Courgette Soup - With many household budgets being stretched to the limit, food is something that we cannot afford to waste, nor should we tolerate it! This is one in a series of recipes provide by our soup dragon here in Frugaldom - it can cost less than 5p per serving to make and can easily be frozen in recycled margarine tubs for later use.
It seems we have very few serious bloggers or writers in the NYK forums and I can't quite work out why. Blogging seems like the perfect moneymaker for frugal living folks looking to work from home, so perhaps they just haven't got the time to read what others write.
Home ownership for first time buyers can be a daunting prospect so this is a little bit about how frugal living can help you save to buy a house, or even save to rent to buy a house! The lifestyle affords the luxury of saving more of your cash for your dream home.
