Thrifting our way (temporarily in Bulgaria) to a better life

Spruced up for Christmas

Leave a comment

Digger has just turned up in the van with the whole top off a large spruce tree- he has been in the plantations doing some felling and general woodcutting shenanigans. This is his gift to us, the unwanted section of the tree from his work, but perfect for us at Christmas.  The tree smells beautiful, a real sweet and pungent aroma. Tiddler is dancing around with joy at the thought of being able to ‘play with glitter’ (tinsel).  Deck the halls indeed.

Call me thrifty, prudent, tight or even a miser, but squirreling money away is definitely my thing. The ins and outs of how saving money became a lifestyle, in order to work towards a specific lifestyle change. Follow me on that journey and learn to look at life in a different way.
