I was very impacted by Rhonda's post yesterday...I am slipping in my frugal ways...and I know it is time related.
I, like most of you, am in the stage of life where my children take up huge chunks of time - time I am so happy to give them. We homeschool too, so this means my mornings (until 2pm) are taken up with school activities. Thereafter, 3x a week, they have activities. This leaves Tuesday for my business (packaging and posting orders) and Friday for groceries and errands.
Saturdays and Sundays are meant to be quiet at home days but Saturday seems to fill up with stuff...anything from making something in the kitchen through to a family outing for something....Sundays I am really trying to rest which is not easy for my "must-be-busy" nature.
So in this hurly burly of life I have relied more and more in the last few months on shops. I still make my own bread most days, cook from scratch, garden, line dry washing, no heaters - rather a fire, but our household bills climb increasingly.
It doesn't help that we now have one of our precious children meeting with a speech therapist for dyspraxia weekly which gobbles a huge chunk of cash every month. This is not negotiable and is necessary for him...please don't take this as a moan...it isn't.
So somewhere, somehow I need to make time to save more and I know from the past that living frugally = time...something that I don't seem to have right now.
Is there anyone out there who can give me a VIT B frugal injection? I sure would appreciate it!
