frugal_aussie_mum I'm trying this app out called "GroceryBT" (a free app) and loving it. As you know I am slowly moving into once a month shops and I love knowing how much I have left to spend. Jordan Page from Fun,Cheap or Free @funcheaporfree recommends that you spend $100 per person per month. For us that would be $300 per month, but when you work out the US to AUS exchange rate, it works out to be $400 a month for us. This has worked amazingly for us. This will be my first month using this app. Fingers crossed at the end of the month we have some money left over!

frugal_aussie_mum Hey everyone! So sorry I've been absent this week. Not only am I unpacking from the weekend we just had away camping, but I'm re-packing for a weekend away with just the hubby and I (first date night/weekend alone in 2 years!). We are so extremely excited! As soon as we found out we were pregnant again, we knew we need some "us" time before the baby arrived. We worked it into the budget and can now enjoy our hard work. So since this week has been super busy, dinners have been nice and simple. I had some ham that needed using up and what better way than an omelette. You can throw anything in them and they are soooo healthy and filling!

frugal_aussie_mum Hey Everyone! We are home from our long weekend away! There was no phone signal where we camped (nice to have a break), so between loads of washing a prepping for the week, I'm slowly catching up on all your posts. Here is my favourite pic from the weekend, my 2 boys
P.S - this weekend cost us very little. We took all our own food and really only paid for campsite fees and fuel to get there.. Basically a cheap holiday!

truknown13 When it was just me, myself, and no friends. The moment you stop hanging with broke people and start making like minded friends is the day your pocket will change for the better. Putting money in the bank is like burying it underground, it just won't grow. I invest in real estate because I want to have a big time drug dealers money without having the risk of jail. I went to school to get an MBA ( Massive Bank Account). I buy assets, not liabilities that appears to look like assets. Isn't it Ironic? The more I chase women the less money I have, but the more I chase money, the more women I have. The more I chase after women the less sex I have, and the more I chase after money the more sex I turn down. Money is a spirit, and can only grow when it is always moving. I don't like the reserve bank!!!! Want to be rich? Print your own money. Want to beat inflation? Make more money then the federal reserve is printing. Money backed by credit instead of precious metal is monopoly money. I would rather buy a 100 ounces of silver with the money and put it in the bank rather than putting just the money in the bank. The bank will take $100 from you and loan it to 1000 people, but will give you $70 back because every dollar will only be worth $0.70 next year. I call bankers robbers in a suite because the only difference between them and the bank robber is that they rob us legally. Read the contracts people.

frugal_aussie_mum Have you got plans for this Anzac long weekend? We are going camping! (to a lovely dam only 1hr drive from our home). We'll be going with my parents and my husband's mum. I'm heaps excited because I love camping in the cooler weather and it's relatively cheap to do. Today I made some curried egg mix (for sandwiches) and chorizo pasta (dinner) to have while there. This will stop us from going up to shop and buying lunch/dinner etc. Every camp has a designated food items to bring that so we 1) can share the cost and 2) don't double up on stuff bought.

becky_j_yeahjustj Just what we had left over or laying around. Black bean Burger covered in mashed potatoes topped with a zesty onion gravy. A side of fresh chopped spinach, purple cabbage, orange bell pepper and pickled okra. Some fresh sliced cucumber. #veganlife #healthyoptions #oilfree #dairyfree #meatfree #hclf #veganfamily #nowastemeals #cheapliving #smartmommy 2w

frugal_aussie_mum Ok so I have been thinking about converting from once a week shopping to once a month. Can anyone who already does this give me any tips, pros/cons to doing this?
Here's my current situation:
* I live 50km away from the nearest supermarkets (woolworths, coles, iga).
* I spend $100 max a week on groceries/household items.
* It costs me $12 (approx) in fuel to do a round trip into town, so to save money I prepay my Woolworths delivery which works out to be $1.70 per week.
I am also considering buying bulk meat packs from a butcher? I see a few pack that although the initial outlay seems high, the meat ends up being under $10 per kg.
Thoughts?

frugal_aussie_mum I have the best husband! I am VERY strict with my skincare. I used some of my birthday money to buy this mirror cabinet to put my stuff in instead of having it out all messy over my dresser. Today after doing 5 straight nightshifts Brock put it up for me. The compromise was that I am to make him apple crumble & custard for dessert tonight.. Seems fair

  •   frugal_aussie_mum I use a brand from America called "Exposed Skincare". There website sells it and it's pretty expensive but I get it off Ebay cheaper. Also when u actually work out how much u pay per product (I buy in kits), it's the same price as what you would buy for face stuff from coles/woolies/priceline etc. The ingredients are amazing! @cassieheffernan2 3w
  •   frugal_aussie_mum I think i got the better deal, i got my cabinet put up and I get dessert tonight too @craftyreikimama 3w
  •   frugal_aussie_mum Noooooooo! Going to bed with makeup on is the worst thing you can do! However if you are going to do it, try just using makeup wipes to get most of it off 😀 @_fitmissmeli_ 3w
  •   _fitmissmeli_ I know I have gotten so slack! I will do that to start getting me back into the habit!! will have to look into your amazing skincare! Sounds amazing!! 3w

frugal_aussie_mum Ok guys this is huge! I need you to help me decide if I should start a YouTube Channel. I have been thinking about this for a while and really like the idea of it, but am not feeling sure about it for the following reasons:

1. I am a terrible public speaker! One on one I will probably talk your head off, but put me infront of a crowd and I get nervous!

2. I just played around filming myself on my phone and I just looked weird & awkward lol.

3. I don't know what type of stuff you guys would even want to see!
4. I'm due to have a baby soon, would I have the time?

Any tips, advice would be greatly appreciated! 😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀

  •   lmdeimler People often think of YouTube channels as an interview of sorts or a house tour, but it can be so much more than that. One channel that was highly watched was simply someone playing with toys...and they never exposed their face. Others use text and music to make their videos appealing to others. No matter how you choose to document your journey, do it in the way it would most interest you. That's the easiest way to know that it will interest others as well. A little research can go a long way into making your channel highly profitable to your debt free goal! 3w
  •   rebeccaisafish I'm sure you didnt look as weird And awkward as you think. Everyone hates hearing their own voice/seeing themselves on tape. Ive just started enjoying youtube so I'd watch yours for sure 3w
  •   frugalsfreebiesblog Google has a free blog called blogger. At least they do here in the USA. 3w
