Frugaldom - who, what, where, why?

We're more than half way through February and despite the continuing winter weather, temperatures are starting to get above 6 Degrees C - this means the grass will begin growing and with that, everything else, too. It's time for me to plan the food gardens, prepare the growing spaces and  start sowing seeds!

Going on holiday may be a pipe dream for those battling debts or juggling over-stretched budgets, but we all need a break sometimes, if only to help preserve our own sanity! That's why, here at Frugaldom HQ, we are developing bolt holes - specially tailored options to help make your escape affordable, even on the tightest of budgets. Come and learn more about frugal living, experience the lifestyle for yourself and crunch the numbers needed to set yourself on the path to debt freedom.

What is the difference between a pullet egg and a hen egg?

2018 is going to be about concentrating on the little things to enable us to get more of the big things done! Like they say, if you take care of the pennies, then the pounds will take care of themselves. So, our first port of call is the chicken shack, where the Frugaldom hens reside. Last summer, we hatched out some chicks in the incubator - from a dozen eggs, we had 9 chicks but of those, only 8 survived the first 24 hours and 5 of them were cockerels!

Welcome to 2017, even if it is a little later than planned. It has just been brought to my attention that the Frugaldom blog has been sadly neglected, so I am here to remedy that problem right now.

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!
