Happy Easter! Did you have a good long weekend. Well, we certainly did in the Ms Frugal Ears household. And we still did it while maintaining our $50 a week challenge.
In January I announced that I would pay off my mortgage by Christmas 2016. Last week I caught up with two girlfriends for a frugal lunch. “How is your goal of paying off your mortgage going, ” one of my friends asked me. “I’m on track,” I told her. There was some disbelief and she wanted to know how I was doing it. So here is what I told her.
I am a proud frugalista, and this is especially evident in my shopping choices. As I tallied my end of month finances for June, I realised that I spent a grant total of $9.02 per day on groceries. Nor is this a freak: over the last six months I averaged $12 per day.
