First post

I'm trying to be very frugal this year, and hope to save quite a bit of our money towards our 'own' home.
I shall be monitoring my progress on this blog, so that I can keep keep records of what's going on (and what's being spent where!).

These are some of my plans for this year....

  • I hope to get a little Etsy shop up and running with homemade sewn, crocheted and papercrafted treasures.
  • I plan to make myitems from the stash I already own as much as possible...
  • I'm hoping to join in with the 'Frugaldom forums 2013 Money Making Challenge'.
  • I want to keep within our set grocery budget. Saving anyleftovers at the end of the month in a sealed pot towards (hopefully) next Christmas.
  • I seriously want to have lots of No Spend Days. (NSD)
  • I would like to get some vegetables up and growing in the garden again.  Mostly in pots though as we live in a rented house :(
  • Lose weight!!!!  :D
Well,  I think that's enough to be getting on with. I just hope that I mange to keep track of everything on here :)

Happy New Year!!
