So my first post….
I’ll start with a little about me. I’m a 31 year old man from Berkshire who moved to Yorkshire for work, met the girl of his dreams and then started a family. Both my partner and I earn a modest income, but still struggle to manage the finances of a growing family.
I have struggled to find content relating to money saving in a family setting, especially focused on the UK, that is well written and entertaining, and so here I am to share my journey with you, in the hope that you might learn from some of my discoveries.
I won’t be using acronyms like FIRE or advocating extreme measures in my pursuit of frugality. I believe there is a middle ground where you can have the things you need, secure your and your families future, and still have room in your finances for some of the things you want.
I just want to share experiences, tips, insights and recommendations from my journey.
I have never been amazing at writing (dropped English at GCSEs) so you may all have to forgive my poor grammar as I go!
I will also probably share all sorts of other bits of adventure, general interest and such as I go.
This post will act as a glossary of sorts to other areas of the blog, and act as a place to start.
For now, I recommend you move on to the story of how I started my frugal journey.
