I am a single mum of an 18mth old and I stick to necessities only. I save every cent I can. I use very little electricity and with that said, in winter, I close the house up early, I leave the oven door open to warm the house after cooking dinner, we have throw rugs over us in the lounge room, extra blankets on beds and extra clothes on. I buy bulk groceries when on special and make huge meals and freeze them in portion sizes and reheat as needed. We walk to the local shop, playground, library etc instead of driving which saves fuel. We bake a lot which saves on buying treats and things. I sew, which means we save on clothes etc. Budgeting is always best!
