Frugal Adventures

We love to get away about once every 6 weeks and as frugal lovers 不不不不 we always find the cheapest deals and ways to enjoy a little bit of travelling with a bit of sourcing for our reselling business. This probably goes back to being self employed and working from home. We have always had a holiday home somewhere, either the west or the east coast, a few hours drive away where we can be relaxing near the beach by the afternoon or the next morning.

I’ve looked at the calendar and realised we have had or will have had15 frugal adventures over the last 18 months
