Beautifully Frugal

“Must be nice to be a stay-at-home Mum.”

I hear this A LOT.

No one understands that not only is sacrifice a part of parenthood, but it’s also the backbone of stay-at-home-parenthood.

Single income families, whether one parent or two, embrace frugality, the 3-Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle) and encourage meaningful gifts.
