Hello Dear Reader,
I’ve added this in case you’re here for the first time today.
Who is Frugal Queen. I’m a blogger who writes about our life in Cornwall and Brittany in the holidays. I save money at every breath! We live a simple life by choice and not by necessity. I’m a great believer that you make your own choices so do so wisely. We’re frugal as life is ever changing and our hopes of a comfortable retirement changed with the raising of the pension age, shrinking of pensions and of course an uncertain future. I don’t think you can have money now and when you’re retired so we are making small steps every day to make our future the best we can.
We are ’empty nesters’ who can therefore save every penny and we can afford to make the choices we make. In case you want to know my credentials, what ever they are. We both work in professional roles, are well paid and have grown up children who are both employed and living independently. My politics are centralist but not left wing, I’m against wasting money and think most politics is a bit half hearted and needs some welly from people with more conviction. if you go back to the beginning of my blog you’ll find my history and how I got to where I am today. In short, we were down and now we’re on the way up again.
I can’t stand waste, mindless consumerism, bad service, rip off charges, throw away society, eating in the street, sniffing and poor standards of cleanliness and most of all, hate laziness. I believe in re-using, DIY, make it if you can, make do and mend, cook it yourself, if it can be repaired, then repair it and getting on with it yourself.
Love Froogs xxxx
