Who is Thrifty Clair?

In short, I’m a 33-year-old money-saving enthusiast. I became debt free in 2017, was a first time buyer in 2018 and a bride in 2019. Since then, my energies have been focused on turning our house into a home without spending a fortune, creating simple but tasty recipes and enjoying a social life without blowing the budget.

My Blog focuses on living a typical life of a woman in her thirties but doing it on a budget. I see the thrifty lifestyle as a way to make my hard earned money give me a good balance of enjoyment and security.

I still enjoy going out for meals, indulging in drinks out with friends and love buying new clothes… My thrifty ways also allow me to also save for big life goals as well as saving for a rainy day.

My posts include information on bargain products, discount retailers, preloved bargains, freebies, discount codes, deal stacking, coupons, purse friendly recipes, lifestyle tips and thrifty hacks that I use in my day to day life.
