When I first started Thrifty Green Life at the beginning of last year it was with the intention of documenting our families money saving journey. We made a plan to change our money wasting habits and find “thrifty” ways to make changes to our lifestyle. We wanted to own our home, but we had no money to be able to afford a deposit for a mortgage and this was our goal.
Over the last year I’ve realised that this blog and our journey has become so much more than I ever anticipated. It’s become less about saving money and more about protecting our planet and the health and future of my family.
We still desperately want to own our own home but we also want to build our own home. We dream of living a more minimalist, sustainable and self sufficient life. We still want to save money on unimportant things but we also want to spend the money that is necessary to improve our lives and the health of our family and the planet.
I never anticipated that I would become extremely passionate about zero waste, plastic free shopping and recycling. Or that I would become a forager, a gardener and start my very own eco community. But, here I am today, with my little old blog, documenting not only my journey to sustainability and self sufficiency but hopefully providing a useful source of info and inspiration to help you change the future of our planet too (If you want to 😊)
I am really excited for the year ahead and what ever experiences and challenges it may bring and I can’t wait to share it all with you, 2019 Lets do this!
