Oh, hello there!

I’m Hannah.

Thriftyish is a family blog all about practical and fun ways to save money, live a simpler life, be organised & think positive. We share our story of working towards financial independence with four young children and a tiny budget.

But why?

We got engaged, bought a house, got married and fell pregnant in the same year. Two years & another baby later, we dropped to one wage. Raising 2 young children, on one wage AND in the midst of a recession meant we had higher outgoings than incomings – we hit financial rock-bottom and had to climb back up.

It took over 7 years, but we are now debt-free (except our mortgage). We learnt some hard lessons about money – and vowed to never be in that situation again. Our aim is to become financially independent – and this is our story as we continue to chip away (at a snail’s pace) at our mortgage whilst making sure we enjoy life and parenthood along the way.

And we want to help you too!
