Hello, and welcome!
The Thrifty Life is a place to share my experiences on thriving while living a thrifty life. I want to inspire others that you really can thrive with a thrifty life! On here you will find the ways that I make and save money, from budgeting tips to recipes and more, all personally used and implemented over the years by us to reach our big financial goals.
By our mid-thirties, we owned our family home and a car outright (no loans!), a mostly paid-off investment property, and a small but steadily growing share portfolio, mostly achieved while as a single income family with three young children.
I also share general ‘mum life’ articles and home organisation tips, plus a few book reviews every month (I’m an absolute book-worm!).
We continue to be thrifty so we can enjoy what we are really passionate about in life, which is family travel! I blog about our adventures over at Adventure By 3.
