Flybuys offers are not always worth it. Often they look appealing but really you end up spending more than you usually would. I will never use an offer unless it's something I actually regularly use or need (not just "ooh yes I would like to try x"), otherwise it's just giving my hard earned money that I should be saving to Coles! . @hustle_and_save's post on mangoes reminded me to make this post. I got this offer too after I spent $3.50 on a mango on Tuesday. 50 points x $3.50 = 175 points = $0.875. Yesterday I found a fruit shop where I can get 2 KP manoges for $2. So now, rather than go to Coles to take up this offer I went back to the new fruit shop and got 2 more mangoes for $2 because it still leaves me $0.625 better off than taking up this flybuys offer! . This is an example using a small amount of money so it seems a bit petty but it's the principle of it, it all adds up. Another offer I have is 800 points ($4) if I buy micellar water. I never use this and don't even know what it is. Some people would take up the offer because of the $4. Micellar water costs $13.50 a bottle so I'm not $4 up if I buy it, I'm $9.50 down! . I think we're all pretty clued into these things but there are so many people who end up spending more than they usually would just to take up these offers. Even things like chocolate or chips, if I don't usually buy it I don't take up the offer, otherwise it's just unnecessary spending! . . #budget#frugal#debtfreecommunity#debtfree#debtfreejourney#debtfreecommunityaustralia#cheap#savingmoney#savings#flybuys
Spring Meat Chicken Update Week 9: We're on pasture now! They're now ranging the backyard, eating bugs and grass and being real chickens! They're enjoying their frugally modified coop (don't ask...), and growing like the clappers. They've nudged over the half a kg mark, weighing in at 572g. We're now up to $39.02 in total costs, or $9.75 per bird. That means they're now more expensive than an average supermarket 'free range' chook...

Here's where we are with our energy usage right now. We are about £100 in credit but haven't had to put the heating on since late spring. I'm trying to go as long as possible without resorting to using the central heating and luckily the ambient temperature in October has been relatively mild, so it's been in our favour. Gas-wise we might be able to keep costs down if I keep batch cooking, and especially if we use the instant pot instead of the hob (it uses a lot less energy overall). Electricity-wise we are very good at switching off lights, but could switch off the telly more. I think one of our biggest energy eaters is the tumble dryer. It's about 20 years old and although at the time of buying was deemed pretty energy efficient, I think these days it's lagging behind in efficiency ratings. But rather than replace it and spend out for a newer model when ours is still working perfectly fine, I might just buy an indoor washing line to help get clothes mostly dry (we have a cold house, it takes forever to air dry in autumn and winter) before giving them a final tumble. Thrilling reading, I know. But this is where we are; trying to save pennies and pounds, and the planet whilst we're at it. . . . #frugal#frugalliving#thrifty#thriftyliving#frugalmom#thriftymom#momlife#mamalife#mumlife#thriftymum#frugalmum#budget#budgeting#budgetplanning#planner#planning#debt#debtfree#debtfreecommunity#daveramsey#goodlife#nospendchallenge#instaplanner#motivate#inspire#bloggingincome#sidehustles#sidehustle
