Hello and welcome to Frugalitude. I'm Julia and I love finding a good deal, saving money and time, learning how to make less waste and being more conscious about how I live.
More importantly I love the freedom that being frugal brings to my life. I have more time and money to follow my dreams and to do more of what I love – including this blog!
That's me on the right there with a coffee - I love taking a little time each day to slow down and enjoy a good coffee!
I’m also an avid baker so I thought a fun way to share more about myself is with a recipe.
I should also introduce you to Honey, our Labradoodle. Honey demonstrates great "Frugalitude" as she's always willing to eat leftovers, she can reuse most items as toys and she chooses to live consciously: mainly eating, sleeping and playing!
She's also a frequent companion in the kitchen, hoping that she’ll get a taste of whatever I am cooking.
For me, Frugalitude is a way of living. We all have a finite amount of time and money so I believe it is good to be more conscious about how we spend them. So on this blog I share different ways to be more frugal and careful about how to spend your time, money or energy, investigate whether something is worthwhile to do (or not!) and look at ways to live life better and happier.
I hope that you will find enjoy the site. Perhaps try some things for yourself and share your experiences?

It has been a labor of love to create this website. Since this site is dedicated to frugal living I have tried to create it in a thrifty way, doing as much as I can on my own. However, I definitely could not do it alone so I am very thankful for:
