Frugal February results!

My Frugal February was a success. I did majority of grocery shopping at Aldi, limited my coffee and take-aways, went out only once and re-financed my mortgage which should save me thousands long-term.

I put saved chunk of money into an offset account offered by my new bank and feel like I am a step closer to financial freedom as mortgage is the only debt we have right now. Eventually I would like to work part-time (four days per week) so I have more time to enjoy life. I feel like I need three days off, one to run errands and do housework, one to socialize and one to relax. At the moment I feel like I can only pick two having two-day weekend.

I must admit that I wasn't perfect and did buy few things but I let myself walk away and think about them first. I am planning to continue saving money, accumulating less stuff and only buy things that I really want/need.


  1. That's great! I'm glad to hear you are on your way to financial freedom. I, too, feel like I need an extra day off a week to run errands. I'd love it if we could all work a 4 day week. I'm totally on board with that :-)
