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.

Quit spending on stuff you don't need! I cannot repeat this often enough! It is the number one cause of being skint, no matter how much or how little money you have coming into your household. Frugal living is about HOW you allocate your budget.

Now You Know how to make bread without any bread flour! I got through January spending less than £30 on groceries for the household but ran out of bread and bread flour. As they say, necessity is the mother of invention, so let's get inventive.

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!

We have welcomed many new members to the Frugal Forums where the day-to-day trials and tribulations of we challengers are published. We set our sites on living more frugal, self-sustainable and healthy lifestyles while pursuing, achieving and maintaining debt freedom. We have analysed our spending, studied our budgets and set out our goals, now let the frugal games begin!

The Frugaldom annual grocery challenge is based on a maximum of £1 per person per day for all meals, so 2016 presents us with £366 per adult, as it's a leap year.

It's the final countdown! Winter solstice has arrived, we're about to see out the shortest day of the year and Christmas is almost here! Today I made snow sprinkled marzipan berries, a clove pomander and a cinnamon & berry horseshoe garland.
