Five frugal things on holiday I wrote a post about what to pack to cut the cost of a staycation earlier this week, but here's five frugal things that saved money while we were away. Going on holiday in the UK really saves on travel. Forget flight or ferry tickets - we could just load up the car and pay for petrol.
What I Spent, What We Ate - $100.89 I didn't spend much on groceries this week, actually. Even when adding in our road trip snacks and Monday's Chick Fil A trip, I'm only at $100.89. Week 1: $166. Week 2: $100.89. Brats and hot dogs over the fire at my friend Mia's house! We'd just gotten back from Ohio, and at first we thought we weren't hungry.

5 Money Saving Back to School Tips for an Organised Mum…. OK, We're not just over two weeks away from the kids going back to school so I figure I should probably start getting organised at some point soon, shouldn't I?
Five Frugal Things, road trip style We loaded up at our home Aldi for the trip out there, and then before we headed back home, we stopped at the Aldi in Ohio. So convenient to have an Aldi in both places. And snacks and drinks at Aldi are so much cheaper than snacks and drinks at gas station shops on the highway.
Cactus cooking Yesterday was DH's birthday. We had a lovely meal at a local Pizza hut and then a little wander around some nearby shops. One of which was a rather random discount store that seemed to stock the oddest things! One of the things we found were these sweet little cactus growing kits for Â£1 each.
The Dave Ramsey Zero Budget Method…. I should say up front that the Dave Ramsey Zero budget method is definitely not my favourite way to budget and it's not one that I've used for more than about half an hour as I just couldn't get away with it. But I have had a few people ask me to explain it so I thought I'd share the basics of the zero budget method with you today.
Wasps… I don't know about you but I think the wasps are very bad this year. We must have a nest somewhere nearby as we were inundated with dozens of 1cm long baby wasps a month ago. So far though, not many of the larger French wasps are around.

All about Ohio! So, we're back from our little trip to the Midwest! I'd been through Ohio a lot of times as a kid on my way to Iowa and South Dakota to visit my grandparents, but this was Sonia and Zoe's first time. Mia, one of my best friends, moved to Ohio in January with her two kids, one of whom is one of Sonia and Zoe's best friends.
What to pack to cut the cost of a staycation Skipping off on holiday with only a passport, credit card and big smile sounds super spontaneous. It's also likely to be super expensive. It's all very well trilling "Oh, you can always buy stuff when you're away!" to people who overpack.
The Best Time to Redeem Your RBC Rewards This may be hard to hear, but it's officially back to school time! I know, I know, it's still summer. I'm trying to savour every last sunshiny minute too, before locking myself inside for the 8 months of winter. Still, there's no denying that the start of the new school year is right around the corner.

I'm heading back today I'm still in Ohio as of the writing of this post, but the girls and I are going to head back home today. We've had a great trip here and it's such a bummer to leave. Sigh. But we've decided that we will just have to come back very soon. See you tomorrow!

Thomas the Tank engine at the Watercress line We spent a wonderful day riding trains and investigating train stations yesterday. The weather was a bit grey and drizzly but we managed to avoid any dourpours and 90% of the time we were undercover anyway. Baby W spent the day with Nanny being loved on and shown off to neighbours.
The Money Mindset That Will Help You Get Out Of Debt I turned my six figure law school debt into a six figure business. I started with $206k in debt from law school, and I have about $70k left. The kicker is I've switched careers twice in that time, and I built a business that will continue to pay dividends in the future.
