We are a young couple beginning to embark on our journey through life together. We hope that our tales of frugality, minimalism and low cost living will inspire you to take a look at your own life and take stock of how great things really are; not everything is as doom and gloom as the media always seems to proclaim!
We are pleased to announce that we have been asked to host a talk on minimalism and frugality! This was a surprise to us but comes as a big opportunity for us to get our voices heard and engage with others in a new way.
Talking Lifestyles: The Frugal Foxes is the title and link to the host’s site and ticket portal. If you’re in Leeds on the 29th of May and would like to put a face to our names, listen to what we have to say or just say hi then come check us out!
We’ll be hanging around after the talk to answer questions and chat to everyone, so see you there!
One of the more interesting things we can evaluate in regards to investing are our approaches and reasonings. This will be a highly subjective piece (backed by logic and reasoning, but subjective nonetheless) and may or may not mesh with you. You and I are very likely to have different risk tolerances, time horizons and general investment philosophies.
If there is ever a claim of mine that people love to refute, it is the fact that the Fox Household eat a balanced, varied and high quality diet by spending just £25 a week on average on food. This figure includes three square meals everyday (so breakfast, lunch and an evening meal) so there are no cheating ‘fast’ days in this.
To prove that this is very much possible, allow me show you what our last week of shopping really looked like.
Today I want to consider the prospect of setting goals. Goals can range from lifestyle choices to financial milestones, but the sad fact of the matter is that too often we fail to achieve them. Where are we going wrong?
