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!

The art is not in making money, but in keeping it.


He who buys what he doesn’t need steals from himself

Swedish proverb

The greatest wealth is to live content with little


The happiest people do not have the best of everything, they make the best of everything they have.
