What’s the best budgeting advice you’ve heard? One great bit of budgeting advice I heard was to give every dollar a job. This way you can avoid the temptation to think “I’ve got some spare money in the budget, I’ll just buy this small item here and here”. Now I make sure that my income and my expenses match, and I give every dollar earned a place to be (whether that's in bills, groceries, events or savings, etc). It helps me to see how much I can really repay to my mortgage, how generous I can be, and where I need to watch my spending. 👌

Some the desire to be #debtfree, isn't as strong as the desire to spend money on the things we want. 😔 | This was how we were for a long time! It's a little bittersweet, but I'm learning how to say "No!" for the first time.

Just finishing cleaning these fresh leek tops that were left over from Oli's soup. I usually use trimmings for stock, but these are too nice. Thinking about a crustless leek and herb quiche?

800 followers!!! How awesome to know so many people are joining me on my journey! I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself to everyone just joining! 
I'm Nadine, a coffee obsessed millennial with a brand new Bachelors Degree in Business Administration. I've been married to my best friend since I was 19 and together we have two active little boys- G&E. I started this account to follow my journey towards becoming debt free. While we've never had credit card debt, we have student loans up to our eyeballs and used to have two car loans- over $70,000 worth in debt! Now, through determination we are down to just under $35,000 in two years on a single income! If we can do it, anyone can!

Spent the morning sorting my clothes for work, prepping my lunches, evening snacks and sorting my bag. 
I've really took the time to make appealing lunches and snacks to stop my urges to go to the shop. 
Aiming for a relaxed, productive and stress free week. Which hopefully will end with a no spend week.
What's your tips for planning for a new week?

Ok it's possible I was stalking the lady in the supermarket as she went round reducing things... no meat reduced except processed sandwich fillings which aren't our thing - but lots of super cheap veg for our stir fry tonight! #thethriftykitchen #reduced #reducedhaul #thrifty #frugal #frugalmum #frugalfood #frugalliving #healthyeating #mealprep #mealplan #mealplanning

A weekend well spent! Food shopping yesterday, along with cleaning. Last night I had a "daddy daughter whiskey night" with my dad, my mate and her dad, our mums and Chris were there just no whiskey for them! Today i visited my sis before she heads off to Europe for a month and then Chris and I went to the gym. I then did more cleaning and baked 2 zucchini slices for freezer meals. Bonus pic of our first passion fruit off our vine!!! #perth #perthfood #perthfoodie #perthfitfam #fitgirl #fit #fitfam #fitfood #health #healthychoices #healthyliving #healthfood #carbs #cardio #jetts #gym #gymgirl #gymrat #fitspo #ootd  #frugal

Had to get creative with lunchboxes tonight as we didn't have enough bread and I couldn't face going to buy more so instead the girls have a vegetarian rice paper roll I made for myself a few weeks ago (still getting creative with my fab value 18kg box of sweet potato  lol) and I loved them! Fritters were just grated potato, egg and seasoning - I use cumin because I'm obsessed with it 😱 plus sweet paprika - and pepitas added for protein. Miss8 has soy sauce and Miss13 has my favourite PB, hoisin and water dipping sauce. Boys have sandwiches because they won't eat sweet potato 😕 what's going in the lunchboxes at your place - love to hear your ideas as I want to prep more tomorrow so I would love to try some new things!! #lunchboxes #vegetarian #gettingcreative #frugal #healthy #cheap #feedingmyfamily #largefamily #frugalaussiemum #largefamilylogistics #healthylunchboxideas

This is what I do at 5am when I can't sleep. $43k is a weird place to be on this journey. So close yet so far away. Work the plan and the plan will work. 💪🏼 #iseethelight

Alright! I’ve just test packed for our move next year. I have 2 medium sized luggage pieces for all my belongings. Turns out all of my personal belongings (clothes, jackets, shoes, handbags, makeup, hairdryer, curling iron, electric toothbrush, underwear, shower curtain, towel, etc.) fit into 1 piece of luggage 😃This means, I can use the other case for my little one’s clothes and toys AND some homeware and whatever else fits. I’m very happy with this.

#24weekspregnant with #babynumber9 baby boy is the size of a French press or an ear of 🌽. I had a dream about delivering him and  asking for him to be brought to me. I called him by his name👶 I have been struggling with choosing his name.  Jose has a name but it's a name that we were thinking about using for child number 7 and we didn't use it for number 8, so I'm not sure 🤔 #largefamilyproblems #runningoutofnames

Hello ladies! I've been quiet all week madly planning for my festivities... Well I've just celebrated my 30th Birthday yesterday and feel on top of the moon!!! I had the best day with my most beloved friends and family and hosted a birthday bash for 40 people at our home last night ~ my much anticipated mexican fiesta party!! 🌵🦊🌶🍒 I am very happy with my budget bottom line. .
Total spend:
.
F O O D 🍅🍍🍋🍇🍎 $359 (includes all entrees, a taco/burrito bar with beef, chicken and pork), cake and basic kitchen wares for cooking).
.
D R I N K S 🥂🍾🍺🍷🍸 $77 (beer, wine for moi and GF, ingredients for four big jugs of homemade sangria which was 💥 if I do say so) .
.
D E C O S 🌷🎉🎈$95 (includes our outfits/costumes, balloons, pinata, general festive bits and bobs like candles).
.
T O T A L  S P E N D 🦊🐴🦌 $ 531 for an amazing party for 40 people at our home!
.
Frugal choices 💲👩🙆💲👩🙆💲👩🙆💲👩🙆
.
- Using decor from our home (what we already had) to decorate or borrowing from friends!
- Major strategy - Buying food/decor ahead of time when ON SALE where possible - canned foods, alcohol, meat to freeze.
- Borrowing kitchen equipment.
- Having realistic expectations and wanting an authentic vibe, not a perfect vibe!
- Baking our own cake!! .
- Being organised to pre-purchase food/goods with FlyBuys/Woolies dollars ahead of time really helped.
- Guests BYO'd drinks and were very happy to do so given how much mucho deliciouso food there was!! ..
- Hosting in my beautiful backyard and not paying for a venue or cover charge! .
Wow, what an amazing time I had 🦊🙆🍋🥂 30 feels wonderful. And nailing my party on a budget is an encouraging and satisfying feeling. Grazias xxoo

Yummy roast pork dinner! Had a very sad looking pumpkin in the crisper so instead of the usual roast vegetables, we had mashed pumpkin and steamed vege. The corn and carrot were also left over from last week but were still in great shape.

When we grocery shop we always move and leftover produce into the left hand drawer so we know to use first. Getting really good at not wasting any vegetables. Only think left from last week is a half a small bag of spinach which ill be chopping up tomorrow and freezing. The spinach is perfect to hide in spag bol and other tomato based dishes. Yum!

As the saying goes: "Buy cheap, buy twice." Buying junky stuff hurts your pocket and the environment. Please respect your stuff. It doesn't just disappear.

Got tired of using an old envelope as a bookmark but I couldn't buy a bookmark anywhere in town for less than $5.  That's just far too pricey for a bookmark in my opinion.  So with a self laminating sheet and some craft paper I already had I made 6 laminated bookmarks for about $1 total.  Frugal win!

I had a pay day today where I can put all the money on the mortgage 🎉 this makes two pay days at 100% savings. I'm going to aim for more in August -- once the bank opens I'll have enough now for my triple mortgage payment goal 😀

So amongst all the packing to move house and country I thought I would take a few minutes to share the final product of the dress I was making for madrid.

Day 41 of 99...I said I was going to step it up a notch and so I decided I want to try and live a more frugal life which is easier for me than what it is for truck driver husband. So I spent the afternoon meal prepping for things he can take with him for the week with the hopeful result of less money being spent on packaged food!! #holidaycountdown #mealprep #baking #frugal #frugalliving #savingmoney #makinglifeeasy

Bought this pram in great condition for $50 from Facebook's Marketplace (really need a reversibe pram). I was going to haggle but when I saw how sturdy & substantial it was in person I was happy to pay for $50, also it helps another mumma out with their hustle.

Small talk with the seller and a few moments later... Seller: My son only just started walking at 16mos.
Me: Oh you have a son, I've got a 4yr old girl and this one (pointing at my tummy) is my first baby boy. Do you by any chance sell some newborn clothes too? I'm happy to buy them in bulk (doesn't hurt to ask).
S: Well yes! Follow me.
*hands me 3 bin bags full of baby clothes* Here take em with you I'm just happy to get it out of the house. I was just going to donate it anyway at least now I know someone will actually use them.
Me: Are you sure??? 😮

I couldn't believe her generosity 😇. I insisted to pay but the seller refused and carried the bags all the way out to where I parked my car. I was a bit overwhelmed and oh so grateful.

I spent last night sorting through the bags. I ended up donating the other two and kept one to myself. There was so much clothes that I've just kept what I really need from newborn to 12mos, summer to winter all covered (even xmas costumes). There's really no reason for me to buy any more.

I feel like all that decluttering and donating in the past few months has been reciprocated back to us in ways more useful than I could've imagine.

Anyway, I just really want to express how grateful I am for all the generous mummas out there! THANK YOU! You inspire us all 💕 .

Bought this pram in great condition for $50 from Facebook's Marketplace (really need a reversibe pram). I was going to haggle but when I saw how sturdy & substantial it was in person I was happy to pay for $50, also it helps another mumma out with their hustle. Small talk with the seller and a few moments later... Seller: My son only just started walking at 16mos. Me: Oh you have a son, I've got a 4yr old girl and this one (pointing at my tummy) is my first baby boy. Do you by any chance sell some newborn clothes too? I'm happy to buy them in bulk (doesn't hurt to ask). S: Well yes! Follow me. *hands me 3 bin bags full of baby clothes* Here take em with you I'm just happy to get it out of the house. I was just going to donate it anyway at least now I know someone will actually use them. Me: Are you sure??? 😮 I couldn't believe her generosity 😇. I insisted to pay but the seller refused and carried the bags all the way out to where I parked my car. I was a bit overwhelmed and oh so grateful. I spent last night sorting through the bags.

Buying a box of cereal just to get this deal 🙈 finding little things to save money 💰 has become my most recent favourite hobby 😂😂 #savingmoney #frugal #frugalliving #frugaltipoftheday #moneysaving #coupons #whynot
What do you do when it's pouring down? Get wet of course! I used my @parent_parcel $10 family pass voucher for @canningtonleisureplex. Hubby did an hour of laps and then joined in the fun with the kids practicing their duck dives! Saved $8.50! #bargain #bargaindeal #cheapfamilyday #sundayfun #funfamilydayout #swimming #perthkids #perthwinter #perthisok #picnicatthepools #frugal #frugalliving #savvysaver #savingmoney
With my parents coming over for dinner, I thought we would have cake for afternoon tea or dessert. I mean, what grandparents don't like cake made & decorated by a six year old? #makedontbuy #frugal #cleanoutthepantry #moneysaving #baking #bettycrocker #notpaid #cakemix #cake #chocolatecake

Ok. So I know all of you in the debt free community already do this, but one way I save is by making sure allllll of my jars are totally empty. I didn't always pay attention to this, and I know I was throwing away a ton of extra food! For example 👉👉 this jar of almond butter. It looks 👀 mostly empty, but when it was all said and done I got more than 2 (almost 3!!) tablespoons of almond butter of the jar when I scraped to the bottom. Enough for two more smoothies!! Who else does this??? I know I'm not alone. 👍😬

We are staying at a lovely campground with a nice pond. I finally felt energetic enough today to try swimming. We waited until 7 p.m. because my face seems to be photosensitive ( rash for 3 weeks and counting). Unfortunately, we didn't factor in water temp. in Maine and nearly froze😬. We looked kind of silly swimming for only 10 min.😂 #wearefromtexas #wedidntknowwatercouldbethatcold

What do you do with a sweet tooth and stale bread? Make bread pudding! It's an extremely delicious dessert made from really simple ingredients and can be made with nearly any bread. Combinations and add ins are limitless, you could even do a savory bread pudding! So when bread goes stale, don't throw it away, make an amazing dessert!

Baby wardrobe stocktake! Wowwww we have so much more stuff for this little bundle than I thought! It makes my wardrobe look pretty lame in comparison 😂. A couple more newborn wondersuits and I think we're set! Hooray!!! 🙌 PS - who said gender neutral baby shopping was difficult!?

My cupboards looked terrible. Fixed them up and literally only need 5 things for groceries this week. Kinda sucks because it's my partner's week to pay for groceries, but also a win as he is starting to embrace the budgetting way!! We can probably survive on things from the cupboard/fridge/freezer for a few weeks with minimal top ups!! I anticipate my next full blown exxy shop will be in September! 
This week also starts a 2 months off take away. My baby turns 2 in 2 months, so no take away till her bday, fingers crossed I can do it.

Another awesome couponing haul to share, & a food haul, at that! I was so excited about this one happening today only, I had to go at 1 a.m. 😂 Wild Friday night! I was wasted on couponing. 😂
27 items: 3 mashed potatoes, 4 Kraft snack trios, 11 boxes of cereal, 3 boxes of Nutrigrain bars, & 6 boxes of Fiber One bars. Would've cost $76.36; after coupons, I paid $19.80! I could've saved an extra dollar, but that's okay! #cerealkiller #wifeyshit

And by the kindness of the cashier's heart, she gave me everything for 50% off!!!! All of this for $37! #thrifting #frugal #reducereuserecycle #thriftstorefinds

Because #brine is life ❤❤❤ I'm so thankful I was able to travel and meet so many people during my time in the military.  I already loved food, being a southern girl, but once I traveled and tasted food made out of the South...oh my.
