I read a lot of blogs to be informed and inspired and thrifty parenting is probably my favorite genre (as well as hoe and interiors) There are so many many parent who have to watch their purse strings however so as tome point most parenting blog discuss saving money.
Her are five fabulous posts I ave read this month that have totally inspired me to make my home and lifestyle that little bit more thrifty
Over at Frugal family Cass has been telling us how to make candles last longer
Candles give a lovely warm glow and light and fragrance to our home don’t they and they save on electricity!
In her brand new blog Family-Style, Ellie has been showing us how to be the perfect house guest and creating a bunch of Boutique Florist Style Flowers on a Budget to take with us on our visits. Such a simple, effective and lovely idea.
Carolin over at Mummy Alarm (I have blog envy) has been focused on a thrifty kitchen and has presented us with 25 awesome soup recipes for Autumn. Soup is not only warming and nutritious but it is also a fabulous way to fill yourself up cheaply and use up leftovers or spare bits of food.
I have also found a lovely post over at Lucy’s fabulous Wonderthrift blog looking at bringing nature indoors with some fabulous DIY coat hook ideas. You have to try this it is both free and simple!
It would follow that if you have a thrifty home and are lucky enough to have one you probably have at thrifty garden too right? We try and grow a lot of our own veggies because
1) it tastes better
2) it is healthier
3) fun for the kids
4) cheaper in the long run.
Have a look at the Spaghetti Sauce my son whizzed up from the tomatoes and chilli’s in our garden.
Wishing you a happy thrifty September .
