frugal_aussie_mum We don't have coupons here in Australia like America does :-( However for the very few ones we do get, I always keep them in my wallet. I have 2 fuel coupons for 4cents off & 2 bonus 1000 flybuy points coupons. Not pictured in my handbag is a stapled together 3 month supply of other flybuy coupons that get mailed to me every quarter. Having these already in my wallet / handbag mean I never forget to use them & they are ready to go!

frugal_aussie_mum So after a lengthy discussion, Hubby and I decided to follow a lot of other Australian's and support Australian Milk Farmers. We are finishing off our last "Supermarket" milk and this morning I purchased a bottle from the news agency to support the farmers. Although it is more expensive and we are on a budget, so are the farmers! Both of Hubby's parents have cattle farms (for meat not milk) and I would hate to see them go through what the Milk Farmers are going through now.

  •   mum.inmoderation Amanda, I copied the post on my IG account about a week ago which has the Aussie owned brands at the top and overseas owned at the bottom of that helps. Overseas owned is not bad in and of itself if they are paying farmers correctly, it's just Aussie owned is even better sorry Amanda I can't seem to tag you again.. 4d
  •   smelimeli3 Good for you 🏼 4d
  •   pinkyandthrifty Well done. We are on a budget too and have chosen A2 milk also. I think you've made the right decision 4d
  •   chialover02 Good on you!!! 3d

frugal_aussie_mum So on Sunday morning my dad cooked up a huge bbq breakfast for us (he is well known for over cooking..always). It came to last yesterday afternoon and I was going through the fridge looking at what needed to be used up for that nights dinner. I saw the left over cooked sausages and rissoles. I have to admit, back in the day I would have just thrown them in the bin. But the new frugal me HATES waste. So i googled what I could do with them. One of the first recipes that popped up was "curried sausages" (which my husband loves). I just cut them up, added carrot, onion, garlic and few other things, served on a bed of rice. Cheap and Zero Waste!

frugal_aussie_mum This pic was taken 2 days ago. I'm currently 30 weeks! Only 10 to go! In 8 weeks time I'll be heading to stay at my parents house in the city to be closer to the hospital (my first baby came 10 days early). We have chosen again to NOT find out the gender of the baby, however we still have NO names yet! Any suggestions? I go through lists and lists found on google, but nothing pops out at me. Otherwise I have everything pretty well organised. Baby seats are washed and ready to go. Room is set up. Only a few things needed like baby shampoo, soap, socks etc (my mum suggested I wait until after the baby shower as that's what people usually get you). I've also began stocking the cupboard up and looking into freezer meals to make before the baby arrives, this will make it easier for us to adjust to being a family of 4.

legitfit79 In the beginning, I always thought eating clean also meant eating expensively!

Sure, my grocery bill has gone up! Of course it has!

I use to eat out 3,4, or 5 times a week! I never made my work lunches unless I was on nights and with a 24hr McDonald's in town, it often lead to late nights drive thur runs!
So I didn't have to buy much from the supermarket!

If there's a will, there's a way!
I whole heartedly believe this!
After I made the commitment to eat clean, I saw the increase... but after 2 months I was able to see that I was saving big time from preparing everything myself! #nomoretakeout

There are ways to budget eating clean... I make a trip to the freezer isle of the supermarket on every trip!
Though always making sure there is no sugar added to my selection of fruits and veggies!

Here you have it! Frozen green beans!

I brought the water to a boiling point and then added the whole bag... only left in the pot for a minute or two and then drained!

Enough veggies for 3 days :) All for a $1.99!

frugal_aussie_mum Just a little survey.. How much did all this cost? I shopped at all 3 super markets available to me (Woolies, Coles, & IGA). I'm not super happy with the price. This is for a fortnight (i'll top up on bread & milk next week). Bare in mind though, there is a soda stream gas refill and some hair removal cream in there that I don't normally buy every week.

  •   whoaphoebe I was able to safe a lot of money going vegan! 3d
  •   frugal_aussie_mum That's so good! Can i ask if you are in a relationship? If so, is your partner vegan also? I think I would have a hard time converting my husband who is a very heavy meat eater. @whoaphoebe 3d
  •   whoaphoebe @frugal_aussie_mum I'm in a long distance relationship with my boyfriend @thegreatordiel :) He's recently turned vegan. Didn't force him to, but guided him into it. We were once heavy meat eaters - I swore my day wouldn't be complete without meat. But over the years I've gained knowledge about eating plantbased and my health definitely improved. I used to suffer from allergies, acne and constipation. And eventually I shared my knowledge to him and allowed him to choose for himself. 3d

frugal_aussie_mum Inspired by @funding_dreams I decided to try selling on Ebay. I am nervous about it but I have a few people "watching" my items and fingers crossed they sell. I have tried with garage sales and Facebook Buy/Swap/Sell pages, but because I live in an extremely small rural town, nothing would really sell. Let's hope Ebay works because alot of blogs/vlogs suggest selling unused items to make some extra cash. Plus it unclutters the house = bonus!

frugal_aussie_mum *** FYI Long Post Alert ***
So in our house when it comes go being frugal and saving, it's left up to me. The hubby supports me 100% but doesn't usually come up with his own ideas (just generally listens and does what I suggest). Tonight he offered to cook dinner. Our fridge, freezer and cupboard are getting a bit bare as we are having a big clean out and trying to use up all we can. I told Brock the other week about a post I saw of @savingforabetterlife where she used packet pasta and added other stuff to beef it up. So tonight he did the same with what we had on hand. He was so proud that he even worked out the cost to be approx $8 for a serve of 4. It was delicious and great to see how happy he was to be involved.
