Family, Frugal & Home Goals For September {2018}

September is finally here, it’s one of my favourite months of the year. I always see September as a fresh start, a bit like new years day. The new school year starts, Autumn is in the air and everything just feels a whole lot better.

August has absolutely flown by but we did manage to tick lots of our goals off. Jake starts full-time school this month which means I will have lots more time to work on our goals. I’m in full on make money for Christmas mode now. There’s also lots of little projects around the house I would like to get done this month too.

Here are out family, frugal and home goals for September.


  • Celebrate our grandsons 4th birthday.
  • Enjoy an overnight spa break (just me).
  • Visit a farm.
  • Make our Autumn bucket list.
  • Go swimming.
  • Visit a local forest.
  • Go to the museum.


  • Check survey sites and money apps every day.
  • Have 5 no spend days.
  • Apply for free offers and discounts for days out.
  • Enter competitions daily for Christmas presents.
  • Stick to a meal plan and use up what we have.
  • Walk more instead of using the car.
  • Keep the heating turned off.


  • Freshen up paintwork in the bathroom.
  • Clean front door and touch up the paint work on the porch.
  • Deep clean the oven.
  • Put the garden toys into storage.
  • Keep the gardens tidy.
  • Continue to declutter.

  1. It sounds like you have some solid plans for September – fun & sensible; a good balance. I definitely want to try and have a few more no spend days. It is crazy the little things you can find yourself spending money on; it all adds up.

    A lovely September to you & your family.
