There's no smallholding, wind turbine or solar panels for us, but we like to share the small everyday things we do to try and keep it simple, green and frugal.
There are four of us, ranging from 9 to 44. Plus a hamster and two chickens. Both the 44 year olds work in the public sector and have managed to escape redundancy so far. One member of the family likes to write and tries to post on this blog at least three times a week. The other three family members provide the inspiration and the ideas. Most of the blogposts have a frugal/green issues/simple living connection, even if that connection might be a bit obscure sometimes!
In 2013, the benefits and necessity of a frugal/green lifestyle, both on a personal and a global level seem more relevant than ever. We're thrifty not only through necessity and because we know it benefits our bank balance, but also because we believe it's better for the planet.
