12 Money Saving Tips I Forget to Follow

I like to stream movies and TV shows while I sew. I fell head first into watching all of the BBC Victorian Farm series (learn more about it here) shows while working on two massive costuming projects. (Disclosure: I am including affiliate links in this post for your convenience)

If you aren’t familiar with the series, Victorian Farm is about three British historians who run a farm for a year according to the Victorian, Edwardian, and Stuart time periods as everyday people. The thing the history nerd in me likes about this show is that the historians are vested in following the practices of the era to find out if what is written in history books is true and what is really was like. Unlike living history reality shows like Frontier House (you can read about it here) where the goal seems to be to throw modern day people into a period living situation to watch them freak out and cheat because it is a harder life than they thought.

A big part of farm life is living seasonally and I’m unconsciously following suit. On my last couple of grocery shopping trips and such I found myself falling back into some good frugal habits and seasonal tips I let fall by the way side.

I hope that by writing down some of the easy ways I saved extra money and sharing them with you I’ll remember to make them a regular habit – I hope.

 Pin this list of frugal hacks for later and to share with your friends!
