A blink is like a teeny, tiny clap for your face.
So even if no one else is cheering you on today, your eyelids are.
Bonjour you beautiful thing! Want to know more? Well sure you do!
I'm A Thrifty Mrs and I'm a charity shop-aholic based in Manchester (can I get a chorus of 'Hi A Thrifty Mrs' in sing song voices?).
I managed to get myself into a considerable amount of debt as a student and struggled with the repercussions throughout my twenties. My husband and I decided to embrace a thrifty lifestyle and have found we're highly suited to it and love sharing our money saving tips and tricks.
I'm now 30 and living in a tiny basement flat called Thrifty Towers with my husband and our tiny Yorkshire Terrier pup. I try to blog as often as possible bringing you tips and tricks which will hopefully see you on your thrifty way. This blog probably isn't for people who are already super frugal but if you're like me and used to the
finer shiner things in life then this blog might help you make a few basic changes which will help you think about your finances differently and save a bit of money along the way. £20 lipsticks? Pah let's find one for £3 and while we're at it shall we lower your Christmas budget by £150 too? Aces. This isn't about buying cheap rubbish or going without - this is about making sensible choices. And let's face it we none of us are Martha Stewart, so I aim to keep my ideas realistic and attainable.
When I'm not blogging I work for a national broadcaster as a journalist. I also work occasionally as a voice over artist, you may hear me chattering over the top of adverts for the lofty likes of wart cream or erm stairlifts (?), be excited folks, be very excited. I've had a squillion and one previous jobs ranging from radio producer/content editor, copy editor, SEO type, personal shopper, barmaid, chamber maid and even the finest sausage maker in the world (cough) but my heart is firmly in love with blogging and journalism.
In 2009, after several years of ill health I was diagnosed with Lupus and soon after that RA, which has left me pretty damn ill and with limited mobility. As frustrating as living with illnesses like this can be, I try my best to live life with a smile on my face whilst trying new things and whipping out my most dirty of jokes with little to no notice.
This is how my readers describe me & my blog.
