I’m just back from giving a talk, and after a wonderful day out (follow us on Instagram The Frugal Family Blog to see more!) I’m a bit puffed out.
I’ve been thinking about how much more we appreciate things when we have a bit less. Not wanting to sound all preachy and perfect, but I’ve really noticed how the family are all responding to our new philosophy and it’s generally having a very positive impact. We didn’t stop in the shop today, and the kids didn’t mind – we gave them the choice of spending time in the shop or the play area, it’s a bit of a no-brainer really but they were happy, and of course so were we! That money we may still spend this school holiday on a cinema trip… but we are definitely making good choices.
Spend less, use less, do more.
