To our shiny new website! I hope this new, colourful site will be easier to navigate and provide you with as much useful content as before, and then some. It has been a while in the making….
I’ve always found it interesting when I’ve received comments saying ‘that’s not frugal’, as to me, it’s a relative topic. One person might have a huge debt yet not think twice about shopping in Whistles, another might be living on discount coupons but have a ton of savings in the bank, I spend £30 a week on our family food bill yet would always save for a nice pair of expensive slippers. And certainly, the term has changed its meaning for me over the 7 years of editing content. So that’s why I am truly excited to introduce a relaunch of the site: The Frugality is no longer one woman’s sole voice. Yes, I will still be editing and contributing my weekly content (as before) but it is now also a collective. An edited destination on living well, affordably (whatever that means to you).
Here I hope to expand with opinion pieces, real stories, useful city guides from other inspiring women with excellent non-fancy taste (whilst helping to cut down on my own carbon footprint) and of course: interiors tips and tricks. The ethos of the site will remain the same and you can still catch me on social media as before.
To be honest, this was always my plan for The Frugality and I cannot tell you how excited for it to be a realisation.
PS any feedback on usability, navigation and content ideas, as always email firstname.lastname@example.org – it’s always good to hear from you!
