money_savvy_mummy Deal of the century.
Hubby suggested we go op shopping this morning. There's no way I could say no to that! While we were there he stumbled upon this chair, he has desperately needed a new one for months. He spends a fair amount of time at his computer and unfortunately they just aren't built to last. The one he came across was $30. He said I know it's not in our budget, it's up to you. I'll be fine with whatever you chose. I said yes. Anyway. Came home and gave it a look over. Found a label that said it was from officeworks. Look online, omg!!! It is this exact chair!! I could have died at the price tag. It has a small amount of wear to the leather but all the levers work perfectly and the wheels still look new. Safe to say hubby is treating it like gold. If this isn't the bargain of the century I'm not sure what is.

frugal_aussie_mum Picked up this gum boots (or Wellies as some of you may call them) from Big W yesterday for $2! With all this wet weather around my son loves them! He usually just wears thongs (flip flops) but with the mud being so thick, these were perfect!

  •   rebeccaisafish My daughter is crazy about her gumboots. She always wears them no matter the weather 2d
  •   money_savvy_mummy Score! 1d
  •   kelnick10 Just picked up $2 thongs/flip flops from big w today because the mystery of the missing shoes continues and mr had hurt his toe but we love our gumboots from big w - ones that light up when he walks and they've been awesome ever since we thought them. Good time of year to pick up cheap summer shoes. 1d

  •   determinedbex Yup! Always do this lol 3d
  •   myfrugaljourney Same here! Either the undercover clothesline or the airer inside, depending how bad the rain is. I used to always use the drier out of convenience. I have only used it once in the last 5 months and only because we had constant rain for a couple of weeks and nothing was even drying inside. 3d
  •   pandak82 Yep same here. I also have lines strung up in my garage to hang washing when it's raining. 3d
  •   the_simplemummy Having a large family I have 4 I have two that stay outside and two for indoors.. but come winter when it's near impossible to dry clothes all 4 are inside 3d
  •   babysbossbudget Our dryer broke in May last year right before a holiday and we just never replaced it. Use Airers, hang around the house on hangers I have a small line in my laundry and also some thin rope hung up in the garage. Gets pretty crazy in winter but our power bills gave gone down heaps. 3d
  •   beingdebtfree_1dollaratatime We're in the same boat here too. I refuse to own a drier though 3d
  •   tea.and.tiramisu I have started doing the same, I've always used the dryer on rainy days but in an effort to cut costs I pulled out my airer this week. 3d

  •   deenzie7 Hi @frugal_aussie_mum well done! I'm trying to live on a budget also. I'm wondering are these existing old debts or loan repayments etc hopefully it's not too personal a question? Thank you 7d
  •   frugal_aussie_mum Hey @deenzie7 Good luck with ur budget. These repayments are for our mortgage & car loan (the only debts we have) Hope this helps! :-) 7d
  •   deenzie7 Yes thank you @frugal_aussie_mum we have the house loan and that's it. Trying to get into a bigger home! We live in Sydney and house prices here are insane! Loving all the tips! 7d
  •   large_family_finance Rock star 7d
  •   mummy_on_a_budget That's awesome hun!!! Does that include the interest on your mortgage 7d
  •   frugal_aussie_mum Thats ontop of interest :-) @mummy_on_a_budget 7d
  •   mummy_on_a_budget @frugal_aussie_mum omg that is absolutely amazing! I don't know how you do it but I think I need to go through your account and get some inspiration. We only manage about $400 extra per month 7d

frugal_aussie_mum Just got my renewal e-mail. I'm more leaning towards renewing my delivery package, I will save time with having a newborn & toddler, as well as saving a lot of money on fuel. What would you do?

  •   tara_nolan Even if you alternated between shopping and delivery, and only got it delivered once a fortnight, that's only $3.41 per delivery - still a bargain. 1w
  •   thebauerfamily I often get online codes in an email for free delivery. Sadly, they don't offer delivery at our Woolies. 1w
  •   rebeccaisafish @thebauerfamily our woolworths delivery comes from an hour away (in a different statee even) instead of from our local store . It's so strange 1w
  •   sunshine_plus_lollipops Coles do free delivery every Wednesday if you spend over $100. If that's an option for you 1w
  •   large_family_finance For me, I would save a LOT more by shopping in store picking up the mark downs! Especially in the really expensive cuts of meats like roast lamb, pork 1w
  •   nothing_spesh_steph I do both. Its worth it for me 1w
  •   shlyq I would also save a lot more specially on meat, with all the mark down items!! 1w

frugal_aussie_mum ** Cheap Dinner**
Chicken Schnitzel - $1.74
Pasta Sauce - $0.18
Cheese - $0.21
Steam Fresh Vegetable Bag - $0.90
Total - $3.03 per Serve
Now I know alot of people will debate that it's cheaper to buy fresh veggies as opposed to the frozen steam ones. I however find this to be the opposite for my family. I used to buy ALOT of fresh vegetables, but found a day or two later they would be soft and yucky. I stock up on the steam fresh bags when they are on special. Now i have zero waste. I do still buy a few things fresh (fruit, tomatoes, carrots, spinach etc) to keep on hand, but doing it this way, I never throw food out.
