A thrifty mum's thoughts on enjoying parenting
in cash-strapped times.

A new era and a baby sister
Is March too late for a New Year's resolution? Let's see... A new baby, a new toy (iPhone) and a renewed enthusiasm for sharing thrifty thoughts, but less time than ever. This will be an experiment in (much) shorter but (much) more frequent footnotes on Raising Ginger - and now his little sister - on a shoe string budget, brought to you with the help of my little mobile friend.
I am a 30-something Thrifty Mum with a Not-naturally-thrifty Husband, a full-of-beans toddler and a starting school-boy whose head is crowned with a distinctive shock of ginger (it was as shock - we're both mousey brown!). We both work part time (me in a busy museum) and share the fun and frustrations of raising Ginger and Little Sis.
My favourite pass-time is improving our family's quality of life without breaking the bank.
