Our Top Posts 2017: Family Fun, Food and DIY - on a Budget!




How would you rate 2017?  


Ours was memorable for our personal lows - and later highs. We won't ever forget the stress of moving Robin's mom to a home or the grief of losing Ed's dad.  Those two experiences wiped us out emotionally.  But on the other side of both of those trials have been new beginnings with light and hope and we are thankful.


Things on this here little blog have never been better!  At the start of 2017 Robin set the intention of working more consistently here.  As a result, our blog has grown and we've shared some really great ideas.  We've met some really great people too.


It's been such a good year - we're making some even bigger changes - more details soon!  (We're going to chat about it with our email subscribers first - so watch your inbox.)


Our favourite blog moment of the last year was when our 13-year-old daughter Charlotte joined us as our Baking Contributor She's shared three great recipes so far and she has more to come.  It's so much fun to share our Frugal Family Times experience with her.  (When our son is a teen we will see if he's interested in participating too - we think 13 is a great age for him to make a choice about whether he'd like to share online with us.)



Thank-you so much for joining us here!

 We know your time is valuable and we're thankful you choose to spend some of it here with us.  We hope our posts give you ideas to spend your money and time the best way possible - and entertain you at the same time.  
Without your visits and comments, we would have given this up a long time ago - so thanks for your encouragement!
