My Winter Financial Manifesto

If you follow my other blogs ( and, you will no that I am not keen on making resolutions at the beginning of the year.

I make a manifesto each season and I thought that it was high time that I made some personal financial ones too.

From Pininterest

  1. Continue to make out meals from scratch and as frugally as possible by meal planning
  2. Make sure that I reduce the amount of waste that we throw out, both food and packaging
  3. To use the library instead of buying books
  4. To start make a planting plan for our raised beds in the garden
  5. To start decluttering the house, with a box for bin, charity and sell and make sure I sell the items.
I would love to hear your manifesto for the winter season.

Please leave a link in the comments below.


  1. I'm definitely going for the decluttering one. Going to be ruthless with each room and get on Ebay asap!

  2. I will just echo all of yours as they are totally the same as mine - such an effort to sort all the clutter!

  3. Sounds good to me! My decluttering is going well, the only problem is that I haven't had a chance to sell things yet so it's accumulating in the loft (out of sight, out of mind).

  4. I'm also going through a major declutter, very slowly - I seem to be generating quite a mess though, so I love the decluttering boxes idea!

Dumping the tumble dryer and Ecoforce giveaway

We have a tumble dryer, but it broke before christmas and we  couldn't afford to get it repaired, so I have been managing with an old fashioned wooden clothes rail and hanging bedding over the doors to dry, This last would of weeks however, I have been hanging the washing outside and it has been drying much quicker and with less creases, so I am going to take the plunge and instead of getting the dryer replaced I am going to give it away. Ecoforce heard me on twitter bemoaning the fact that I was chasing laundry round the garden as my pegs were not working and very kindly sent me some of their Ecoforce pegs to try and they have been fab. So in conjunction with Ecoforce I have a year's supply of green cleaning and washing up wonder products worth £50 comprising the following: EcoForce Peg Basket x 1 EcoForce Clothes Line x1 EcoForce Pegs x 2 packs Several of each of: EcoForce sponges, scourers, cloths, duster and bag grips Dishmatic Dishmatic Refills x
