I want to set myself a goal of achieving one frugal thing per day. Whether it is re-covering chairs instead of buying new ones, re-fashioning clothes, knitting dishcloths or figuring out ways to save more money, I want to do one thing per day.
You see I want to pay off the variable part of our mortgage in five years. Currently it stands at $67, 720. This goal is very important to me as being mortgage free will lift a huge burden from The Husband's shoulders. It is also part of my major plan to be as self sufficient as possible as soon as possible.
While the Tots are all still little, I choose to stay at home with them which of course means that I'm not bringing in an income. My way of contributing to the family finances is to stop the small leaks happening from the bank account.
We have always lived frugally and I find it both exciting and challenging to 'make things do' Time to step up the plan of action! I will be attempting to add another page to this blog where I can write lists and show my progress. Wish me luck!
