Furniture doesn’t need to be expensive.  There are lots of ways to save money on furniture, here are some of them:

About Me – Michelle

Hi, I’m Michelle, the author of Time and Pence.  I’m a forty something housewife, mother and work from home mom! I spent my early career as an Advertising Executive travelling up and down the UK, attending client meetings, working long hours, meeting tight deadlines, you know how it goes.  Although I enjoyed my job, like many people I became disillusioned and craved more time to do what I WANTED to do.

I wanted some day to have a family and I always knew that when that happened my dream would be to work flexible hours so that I could be at home and have quality time with my family, do the school runs, go to sports days and watch the school plays rather than having to go down the route of child care.

When I was 30, my dream became a reality and I gave up my career, my £30,000 salary and my leather seated company car to pursue a life of self employment and freedom and I’ve never looked back.  Since that day I have done many things to make money, all with flexible hours and have proved to myself that it’s possible to make money and have time to live the life you choose. I now have various income streams and love finding different ways to make extra money.

I have lots of knowledge tucked away of ways to make and save money and would love to share my experiences and ideas with you.  Couple that with our family life and health and there should be something on my blog that will grab your interest!

So, join me on my journey to financial, time and health freedom and see how you can make changes to your life to live the life that YOU choose.
