Can I Now Become Any More Frugal?

Ok, I am now on an uber mission!

We don't have much progress on our potential house purchase, but we are in "negotiations'. What that says to me is that for my own peace of mind I wish to become more frugal than ever! I am not sure what else to do, or where to begin.

I have cut back all my spending, and really only spend on the essentials, food, petrol and other non-negotiables like insurance, etc.

In fact we have become so frugal, that last week we didn't even go for our weekly food shop and only got the odd one or two items (chicken stock and milk for example) that we needed as the days passed. I don't know why I think I need to push it further. We have plenty of equity in the house we live in, our mortgage would go significantly down, but something just tells me, to hold on to every penny.

Do you have any thoughts on moving house? If we don't do it with this one, we will do it sooner or later. Just to tide you through, here's few more pictures for your viewing pleasure.



  1. It is beautiful! I hope this works out! Grace to you all! Patricia

  2. Shall be following with interest, good luck, I hope your dream comes true, we have a dream as well.

  3. Oh my gosh, I am so excited for you! Keeping my fingers crossed for you. :)

  4. It is beautiful but that is a long driveway.

  5. Your (potential) house/homestead looks amazing!

  6. Wonderful that you have found a property like that! I love where I live but occasionally I will start thinking I want a place with more room to grow more food and better soil to grow it in! I'd have to take my shovel to any potential property and dig holes! Meg;)
