Back in 2018, I started my personal finance and eco-friendly living blog, Looking After Your Pennies. I write about everything from saving money to making money to eco-friendly living.
But I realise that I wanted to focus on frugal living. It was, after all, the practice of living frugally that set me free from my previous job (teaching) and allowed me and my family to travel the world.
Hence, Extreme Frugal Living was born. A place for me to share all by best frugal living tips on the topics of Lifestyle, Family and At Home.
Who am I?
I’m Charlotte. I’m mummy to two little girls and wife to a lovely man. I enjoy running, swimming, reading, yoga and travelling.
In 2009, I entered the world of teaching after receiving my degree in mathematics. I was a teacher for 10 years, teaching students aged 11-18 years. In that time, I studied for a Master’s degree in Advanced Educational Practice and a further post-graduate qualification in Special Educational Needs Co-ordination.
Then in 2018, two kids later, I decided that enough was enough. I wanted to dream bigger and my husband and I set about making plans for an around the world trip.
After a year of extreme frugal living, we set off. We travelled through 5 continents and 12 countries with small backpacks (around 5kgs each) and two young children (4 and 2 years old).
I believe in frugal living
My ability to live frugally was the key to achieving this lifelong dream. We cut back to save to for and we lived frugally while we were away.
The information in this blog will help you achieve the same. If that is what you want. If not, it will help you achieve some other big dream.
