Hello from the sunny Gold Coast! Ms Frugal Ears and kids have been on holidays this week. Yes, sometimes I take holidays. And sometimes I even spend money on holidays. It is all about my philosophy of balancing saving with enjoying the good life. But that doesn’t mean that I totally lose my head and spend on holidays.
I have a confession: I am a secret op shopper. Many of the clothes that I wear on weekends, to work, and even to the swanky cocktail functions and balls that I went to while on posting overseas in Taiwan are op shop purchases. As are accessories and even handbags. Plus most of the furniture in our house.
