Launching Today – Help Me

Recently I was talking/half-joking about setting up a premium rate phone line so I could make some money from the sheer volume of housewifery and thrifty questions (stain removal issues, eco cleaning, recycling & reusing questions, organisation ideas, charity shop tips etc.) I’m asked on a daily basis. However I thought I’d be a little kinder to you guys and offer my help as a free service. Although if you do want to pay me £1.50 per minute I won’t mind.

Sadly I don’t have the time to answer every question on the hop (my regular email accounts and Twitter get filled up pretty fast), plus I like to try out some of my ideas first so I can give you good information. So hopefully the new system I’m launching today will be of help to everyone. Enter my new strand of posts called…

‘Help Me’

help me
If you have a cleaning, organisation, fashion or thrifting question you’d like a thrifty answer to, drop me a line at my new dedicated email address [email protected] and on a regular basis I’ll answer your questions and problems here on A Thrifty Mrs in posts called ‘HELP ME.’ I may even do some videos if you you want?

Please ping your questions, troubles and quandaries over to [email protected] rather than leaving them in the comments section of this post, so I can collect them all together in one place and provide better answers.

What do you think then?


P.S. I blogged about charity shops earlier today, do you love them as much as I do?

P.P.S. I won’t be able to reply to these emails via email mainly because I intend to do posts or videos about them and it seems a bit silly to duplicate my answers especially because some of them may be so detailed.

P.P.P.S. I’m unable to answer questions about children/babies etc. mainly because I know nada about them, sorry!

Make sure you don’t miss a thing, subscribe to A Thrifty Mrs for free.


  1. Sounds like a plan Stan! I like.
    Plus for £1.50 a minute I’d need a bit more than some housewifey tips, if you get my meaning Doll, heh, fnarr fnarr.
    I’ll do some RTs of this service once you’re buffering tweets on it! Great idea.

  2. It sounds like an agony aunt column! Dear Mrs Thrifty………

  3. actually, you must write a book. Thrifty household tips and all you need to know about freezing leftover wine (as seen on ‘Harry Hill’). Snappy title for you ;o)

    but seriously, write a book. I’d buy it.

    feel better soon

  4. Bring it on!!! (very politely please very much *curtsey*)

  5. Videos! We want videos!!

    Renee :)

  6. What a grand idea :)

  7. Videos yes please, and also why is your house tour went off? I like your little vids.

  8. This is a great idea :) And videos would be great too, it’s so great how willing you are to help everyone!

  9. Awesome idea I’ll keep an eye out for the posts :) xx

  10. Can you do a recommendation for haberdasher type shops on ebay? Ive enjoyed your other ones about fabric etc.
