During all the wet weather over the past few days I have mostly being staying in and finding zero spend ways to have fun. One of the things we tried out was watching Series 3 of the 'Right on the Money' programme from the BBC. I just paid the license fee and thought that I should try out iPlayer to see what was on !
The programme was recommended on a few frugal blogs I read, so I thought that I would try it out and I must say that I quite like it and have learned a few things too ! I really like that they are using ordinary people for the money makeovers rather than those with vast incomes who are just wasteful. However, what has been a bit shocking is just how little financial literacy there is, I thought the primary school lessons about balancing a budget were a jolly good idea !
I am always looking for frugal inspiration to help me stay on the straight and narrow, especially in a week when I paid £190 car tax, £147 car insurance and £127 for 2 new tires, ouch !! This programme provides it in spades and I am now going to look into sugar craft for cakes and renting out some loft space ! I am also going to see if I can find the first two series for some more wet weather inspiration !
Does anyone else have a favourite source for frugal inspiration ?
