Lots of tests, experiments and labels happening at my house. Kids everywhere. Decluttering. Cleaning. Final moments with the book. Such madness. It’s getting cold here. I’m excited!!!!

One of the most important skills I've learned to master in life is visualisation. I've have used this hack for most of my life. The thing is, your most powerful asset is your subconscious mind. Once you have put yourself in a picture life this, your subconscious mind continues to set those images in your brain behind the scenes as you go about daily businesss. Try this. It works! Eventually, your brain works at getting you what you want without you doing much else. You can't unsee a positive picture you've created of yourself. These images will eventually stamp out the negative images you may have. I hope this works for you in terms of feeling more empowered every day.
Our school holiday adventure continued.  Coco and ventured out to Frankston’s awesome new venue General Public. There were so many great photo opportunities there. We played a game of pool, went bowling, ventured out to lunch and had some fun playing arcade games. Loving being back home after our big Grampians country adventure. Back to work for this mum! Play dates galore happening at our place! #retro #vintage #s #vintagestyle #art #fashion #retrostyle #aesthetic #classic #style #oldschool #love #nostalgia #photography #design #music #nintendo #retrogaming #sfashion #videogames #antique #interiordesign #gaming #vintagefashion #vintageshop #retroaesthetic #gamer #instagood #vintageclothing #bhfyp
Here’s a little Tuesday inspiration from my first book Table Tucker - where it all began. #peninapetersen #tabletucker #inspiration
OMG this was so much fun. We went on a one hour ride through the beautiful bike paths in the Grampians. These were e-bikes on hire for $40 each. We are happy to spend this kind of money on a holiday because we save so much on dinner!!!! Now that we’ve become financially free mortgage-wise we can afford this kind of thing. Although we did stock our motel room from the supermarket so we could save our pennies for this awesome ride. So worth it!!! Best fun ever!!!! This was an impromptu ride. Luckily I had my board shorts with me to wear under my black t-shirt dress. Yay! #scooter #ebike #e-bike #grampiansbikehire #ngsc #fun #funtimes #holiday #travel #melbourne #thepetersens #petersenfamily #havingsomuchfun #yeah #thingstodo #travelling
Here’s a list of the little kit I took on our three day trip. Black t-shirt dress, stretch jeans.
sneakers, socks, thongs, slipper socks,  underwear, bras, bathroom bag,
hair straightener,  squishable shopping
bags, swimmers, sunscreen, handbag, wallet, sunnies, baby wipes, beanie, squishable sunhat, out-for-dinner top, dress sandals, compartment camera bag, tech and laptop. The black -t-shirt dress is so handy. Because you can wear it out for dinner, to the pool and over the jeans! I love and live in my black t-shirt dress. The camera bag is also great because it has compartments which makes organising daily gear for a train or coach easy! You will always be able to find stuff. #travel #packinghacks #travelhacks #packforapurpose #weekendtrips #weekendvibes #bag #handbag #travelbag #camerabag
In the summer of 2004 my husband and I were $50k in debt. We moved to outback Australia (Kambalda in WA - 60km out of Kalgoorlie) to get completely out of our comfort zone. It worked. Life has never been the same again. This week I went on an unplanned adventure with my beautiful daughter. We venture out when we need it. This was the most fun we’ve had in years. We returned to the Grampians region - where I was once Bushfire Recovery Officer. It was amazing to return to see the community as incredible as it always was and even better. Rejuvenation is a beautiful moment. Thank you Halls Gap - for giving us the amazing day we so needed.

After we cut up our credit cards we vowed never to get one again and we never did. If you can’t afford to buy it now. Wait. Find it second hand. Go without it. If you pay for it with a credit card you’ll be paying much more for it. Ask yourself? Is it worth the future financial pain? Look after your future self. #creditcarddebt #creditscore #creditcard #creditrepairservices #creditrepair #creditcards #debtfreecommunity #credit #creditrestoration #financialfreedom #debtfreejourney #debtfree #credittips #creditmatters #fixmycredit #debt #studentloans #crediteducation #creditgoals #budgeting #badcredit #creditispower #financialliteracy #creditscoreincrease #creditconsultant #creditkarma #bankruptcy #creditbuilding #personalfinance #bhfyp
Amazing things can happen on a spend-free weekend. You will make many discoveries, discover some old and good stuff around the house and even make new friends out and about on a free adventure. I'd love to know how you what you would do on a spend-free weekend.
We were once $50k in debt. We moved to a remote area away from all distractions such as partying friends and expensive city lifestyles. We spent a year completely focused on clearing debt. We worked every day and came home every night, reducing our debt until all the debt was gone. It wasn't what we were making that helped us clear that debt. It was what we weren't spending. We cut up credit cards and improved our credit score by paying bills on time etc. After that we saved a home deposit for a cheap country duplex property. Two cottages on one title.
We then built equity in the home by renovating it out of our wages, while we enjoyed a simple country life. We also continued to work full-time to pay down the loan while our kids were young. After that we rented out that property (rents were high in an area where there was big demand for rentals). We moved back closer to the city, to a regional area close to the beach and with a train line to the city. We used the country property to buy a large home on a double block in a growing area. We renovated that property using the same method as above. Building equity through wages. My husband learned valuable trade skills so we could do everything ourselves. I got good at researching supplies for the renovation. After some time, the duplex property started to pay off both our mortgages. We became essentially mortgage-free while still living in the home we were living in. We purchased both properties in areas which were either tourist towns, or had industry or growing infrastructure. More to come. What's your get out of debt story? Or hacks and tips you can share with others. #debtfreecommunity #debtfreejourney #debt #budgeting #savinghacks #debtfreedom #frugal #frugallife #debtfreecommunityuk #getoutofdebt #savingsroom  #thepetersens #petersenfamily #broke #savingsroomblog #savings #piggybank #debtjourney

Just to prove we do know how to have fun! I wrote this list way back in 2018 and we've been working off this list for years. There are so many cheap and fun ideas here. I thought this would be a great one to share for anyone hanging around home this Easter break or even those lucky enough to escape. Enjoy the sunshine!!!! We're off to the beach tomorrow for kayaking with friends. Can't wait!!!!

Can’t afford expensive anti-ageing creams? I’ve been doing this for about six months now and I’ve noticed a considerable difference to my skin. Apply straight after getting out of the shower after drying your face (when skin is still warm and soft) and then apply moisturiser as normal. Also don’t forget to hydrate from the inside by drinking lots of water 💦. This really works for me :-) #antiageing #skincare #beauty #skin #skincareroutine #glowingskin #antiaging #aesthetics #healthyskin #acne #microneedling #facial #antiwrinkle #wrinkles #antiageingskincare #collagen #dermalfillers #antiage #cosmetics #skincaretips #facials #skinhealth #skincareproducts #natural #skinrejuvenation #selfcare #beautifulskin #skintightening #clearskin #bhfyp
Acronyms are a great way to remember important ideas. Here’s one I created for the word save. I hope to works for you. #savemoney #financialfreedom #money #couponcommunity #couponing #savings #deals #coupons #neverpayfullprice #coupon #budgeting #personalfinance #budget #save #savingmoney #debtfreecommunity #frugalliving #free #savetime #onlineshopping #debtfree #clearance #shopping #extremecouponing #couponer #frugal #business #savemoneylivebetter #sale #bhfyp
Meat is getting expensive post COVID. This a a great way to get more for your spend and stretch that meat out a little further while adding goodness. #savemoney #financialfreedom #money #couponcommunity #couponing #savings #deals #coupons #neverpayfullprice #coupon #budgeting #personalfinance #budget #save #savingmoney #debtfreecommunity #frugalliving #free #savetime #onlineshopping #debtfree #clearance #shopping #extremecouponing #couponer #frugal #business #savemoneylivebetter #sale #bhfyp
