Ladies Of The Pink Purse

All about the Pink Purse

The pink purse is where we keep the Grocery money, it is kept in the Pantry and gets topped up every Saturday morning. When my sister was living with us we all put our money in and if any of us were picking up Groceries we took the pink purse, obviously nobody was in control of the spending but as long as we had money still in the purse on a Saturday morning when it was time to refill, we knew we had kept within our grocery limits.
Now that my Sister is no longer staying with us and my MIL is unwell the pink purse is all mine, I can hunt for bargains and budget on food to my hearts content, I am empowered as I am THE KEEPER of " The Pink Purse " better not let this go to my head.......

Many moons ago in an earlier post I wrote a letter to The Foxx
I had a feeling he was reading my blog and I put this out to him in the hope that he might see how desperate I was to change our financial ways. Yesterday I let him read the post, I felt comfortable enough with our situation to let him in to one of my best kept secrets, this blog.

He offered me nothing but support after he read it and assured me that from now on things will be different, I think he was quite surprised at the whole idea of me having a blog and seemed surprised at the community in general, he laughingly suggested that this is where I get my crackpot ideas from, so bloggers keep those crackpot ideas coming my way...


  1. Hi,

    I came across your page recently and I'm trying to find an email address to contact you on to ask if you would please consider adding a link to my website. I'd really appreciate if you could email me back.

    Thanks and have a great day!

  2. Siobhan I am not in the habit of handing out my email address, however give me a link to your site and I will check it out first.....

  3. I am so glad that you showed that to your husband, I remember when you wrote it. Hoping for the best for you guys and your goals.

    You crack me up Keeper of the Pink Purse!

  4. Thanks Niki I am also glad I showed him it, I am not good at keeping secrets.

    The Pink Purse is actually an old pink wallet which I had lying around the house, but it's mine all mine .........

  5. I remember that letter too - thank goodness to have no more secrets. You must feel such relief! I'm so GLAD you're feeling empowered. Your positive frame of mind shines through loud and clear. You are having a fresh start with the support of your hubby - you make a great team!! Hugs!

    1. Oh Jane I am always glad to have your support, how is Michael feeling today ???

  6. Hi Maureen!

    I bet it feels so good to share your blog with your husband! What a relief! So glad you two are on the same page. It will make things so much easier :)

  7. Lisa I am loving it, I actually feel freed up, which may seem like a strange thing to admit.......

  8. I think its great that you told him!! I ousted myself a few months back to my BF and it was the most liberating feeling ever!

  9. Thanks Sarah, there must be something in the air if we are all owning up. Maybe it's Women telling the truth week LOL.......

  10. Good for you! :) My hubby reads my blog and is very supportive of my frugal ways! Keeps my stress level way down! ;)
