Discussion: Frugal is fun – How to adopt a frugal mindset

  1. Michael Murphy
    I have been making more busicuts, cakes etc to take to work for morning tea. Gluten free foods can be pretty expensive so this saves a fair bit of money.
    We also grow some of our own vegetables.
    We buy second hand when we can.
    I've been using and making natural cleaning products.
    These practices are also good for the environment and making and growing things is pretty satisfying so it's a win win.

      Great. Would you have the time to share your recipes for natural cleaning products? It would be great to know which ones have worked really well for you. I find most jobs can be done well with a natural home made product but cleaning the shower effectively remains a challenge.
