Apologies for the grainy photograph of my wood stove and the laundry. It’s one of our (that’s you and me lovvie) funny frugal ways that we spend evenings looking at drying clothes and don’t mind. Some of the odd things we do including collecting pallets for kindling, pulling newspapers out of the recycling bins for fire lighting, picking up pine cones on dog walks for firefighters and thinking nothing of having big baskets of kindling wood in the lounge and not care what it looks like.
It’s reached that time of year when keeping warm becomes a real focus. We try as much as possible, not to use our central heating or tumble drier and predominantly don’t. We heat one area then open or close doors to move warmth around. We watch the weather reports and dry outside even through the winter and finish off in front of the fire.
We know our funny frugal ways are time consuming but we always watch the odd quid here and there so we don’t mind the extra time life takes.
Over to you then. We’ve all got our funny frugal ways, care to share yours ?
