I’ve absolutely loved joining in with the 5 frugal things linky these past 3 months or so but it occurred to me before I went away that it’s probably not doing for me what I need it to do for me.
Majority of my posts were about me spending money; granted saving as I went but ultimately spending money. To me that wasn’t very frugal and is why I’m throwing in the towel. Today’s post is going to be a not so 5 frugal things!
I’ve struggled massively these past few weeks mentally specifically since returning from our holidays & I’ve felt pretty shit to be honest. The worse I have felt for a very long long time. I don’t know if it’s PMT, jet lag, stress or just holiday blues (I personally think it’s all of those rolled into one!) but I’ve been really snappy, far from engaging and have taken a step back from social media because every little thing was annoying me!
Not that that really has anything to do with the quitting of the linky, just wanted to tell you why I have been a bit reserved and quiet; it’s allowed me to put things into perspective. I know it’s not Friday, the day we usually share the linky, but I didn’t particularly want to wait until then why I’ve chosen to not continue with the 5 frugal things.
I started this blog for me.
No one else but me; a way to make myself accountable to save money. I found myself buying things I didn’t really need because they were a bargain and so I could share it on my 5 frugal things post…. so far from the original reason I set up my blog. Not only that but I don’t have the money to do that either and was just totally defeating the object of being Themoneysavingmum.com
I may well find a different linky to join so some new posts may be imminent; but I will make sure it’s something I don’t feel the need I HAVE to source products for, produce and write for other people.
Thanks so much for reading this and all my other frugal things post and of course thanks to the original ladies who created this linky…. the lovely Lynn at MrsMummyPenny, Cass from Frugal Family, Emma from Mumssavvysavings & Becky from family-budgeting… it’s genuinely helped me in ways I really can’t explain and for that I am ever so greatful!
