His and Her’s: Money Attitude

I think how a person treats money can be very interesting. The attitude towards money can vary greatly between one person to the next; from spending it as fast as it comes in or spending beyond their means to squirelling every cent away and scooping leftover sauce back into the jar and only using one …

Our current position

To be able to fully understand how we are moving forward, you need to first understand our current position. I am a teacher in a State school, and I have one current side hustle. I used to have more, but have since quit or shut businesses down due to a lack of time and mental …

Big Kid, Little Adult is alive!

In 2017, I started Big Kid, Little Adult. I had just learnt about Barefoot Investor, Dave Ramsay & the FIRE movement and I was inspired. In fact, saying that I was inspired would be putting it mildly. I had just come off a 10 year stint blogging professionally, burnt out from the industry, but aching …

Frugal Food Friday: Vego forever, baby!

Well, I’m not really sure these will still be considered ‘frugal’. Maybe I should just rename it to Foodie Friday. 2 weeks ago was vegetarian-ish week. I felt like we have had meat in our menu for quite a bit more than usual due to my sudden obsession with finding discounted mince and cuts of …

My (wannabe) frugal life: 5 things I don’t do.

Let’s not kid ourselves. These aren’t really frugal tips, these are just things I don’t do. I say ‘wannabe’ because I’m getting there. I’m still very much learning and I don’t think I’m truly a frugal person yet. I’m not posting this to brag about it either, nor am I saying you need to follow …
