There’s nothing I love more than sitting down with a cup of tea and a jaffa cake and getting the chance to read some of my favourite blogs in peace. Unfortunately, this doesn’t happen anywhere near enough lately between work, being a taxi for the kids and various other time sucking things but when I do get chance, these are the thrifty and frugal blogs that I love to read. They all inspire me in different ways so I thought I’d share them with you today so you can enjoy them too (if you don’t already)….
She’s tight, she funny and she saves you loads of money is the tagline for this blog and it really does just about sum up Jane and her brilliant blog. This is one of the first frugal blogs I read and Jane is one of the first people who regularly commented on my blog with ideas and inspirational advice. Jane’s story is inspirational and she inspires not just me, but hundreds and hundreds of with her excellent frugal advice and her brilliant meal ideas. Thank you for all the inspiration Jane!
Baby Budgeting and Family Budgeting
I think that the lovely Becky is quite possibly one of the loveliest bloggers I know as well as being an absolute mine of information where money saving is concerned. She not only shares ideas on lots of ways to save money and be thrifty but also inspires me to want to live a simpler life.
Skint Dad is another blog filled with excellent ideas to save money when you’re on a budget and I particularly love Ricky’s honesty about his situation and the inspirational way that he’s getting out of debt. His recipes are amazing too and great for meal planning on a budget.
Jen is amazing and she’s definitely taught me a good few lessons about saving money (and life in general to be honest). She’s a great friend who makes an amazing mint tea using mint from her garden which we drink while we put the world to rights. A Thirfty Mum is Jen’s thrifty blog (hence the name 😉 but you’ll also find her crafting or cooking usually over on Mum in the Madhouse.
Emma is a complete bargain hunter – her supermarket bargains put mine to shame and she’s the only person who’s ever put up a good argument for not meal planning each week! Her blog is filled with hints and tips so it’s well worth popping over and having a good look around.
Liz is another of my favourite thrifty bloggers and I always enjoy reading her thrifty posts. Her blog is filled with ideas for homemade gifts and beautiful photos of the things she does with her family. My favourite posts though are her Magpie Monday posts because she’s a bit of an expert in finding a bargain in the charity shops – I hope to see it’s return ready for car boot sale season! 😉
Penny’s blog is lovely and filled with lots of family fun as well as moneysaving tips. I’ve really enjoyed the ‘MoneyHangout posts that she’s been part of lately as it’s great to get the chance to ask an expert a question about something I genuinely have no idea about. Penny’s Ladybird Tuesday posts are always a real blast from the past and I’d love to find a book worthy of linking up myself!
