Happy Friday everyone! You may not have missed my regular post on Monday but if you did, it was just because I’ve been a bit under the weather this week and distinctly lacking in energy.
My little girl (G) is having nightmares every night at the moment which apparently is a normal development thing but the result is broken sleep every night for between 1-2 hours. Not good especially when I have to be up at 6.45am for work!
Anyway, needless to say, I’m looking forward to the weekend. 🙂 How’s your week gone so far?
I thought I would ask if anyone has any frugal gardening tips for creating a low maintenance (yet pretty) garden. The hubby and I are rubbish at gardening and so we just have a concrete yard to look at. I personally have been known to accidentally kill more than one cactus before.
We rent our property so we don’t want to spend a lot of money (and we can’t anyway) but we would like to jazz up the yard a little bit so we can at least look at something else this Summer instead of plain old concrete. We can’t make any drastic changes so digging up the concrete is a definite no no. I’ve found lots of fantastic ideas online where ugly yards have been transformed into a beautiful green sanctuary, but they all seem to have a huge price attached to them to achieve such an effect.
So if you’re a green fingered reader or blogger, please do chip in by commenting if you have any advice on:
- What are the best things to grow that are cheap and easy to maintain?
- How can I transform a concrete yard ground area into something nicer without spending a fortune?
- Where can I get seeds, plants and any other gardening type things cheaply?
Any frugal tips would be much appreciated!
On another note, thank you to Thomas from I Need Money ASAP! for including my post on How to make a relationship work if you’re in debt in the Carnival of Financial Camaraderie recently. Also thanks to Maria from The Money Principle for including the same post in the Carnival of Money Pros.
Have a great weekend everyone!
