Attention, non-shoppers: do you lead the ultimate thrifty lifestyle?

Miss Thrifty2 November 16, 2009

A nice television lady called Katy asked if I knew anyone who fitted the bill for her production company’s new programme idea. She is looking for people who spend just £1 or £2 a day. I  said I’d put the word out* if Katy sent over her brief. And she did:

Do you lead the ultimate thrifty lifestyle? Is living off £1 a day second nature to you rather than a challenge?

If so, then Hotbed Media are keen to speak with people living the ultimate thrifty lifestyle. We want to talk to people whose budgets only allow them to spend no more than a couple of pounds per day because they believe in this lifestyle. We also want to hear from people who have enjoyed this frugal way of life for many years.

We are filming a taster tape on Wednesday 18th November 2009 and we’d like our presenter to spend a few hours with a person who lives on a few pounds a day. THIS IS NOT FOR TV – it’s for our development and researching purposes only. All footage we film will not be broadcast.

If you’re currently living the thrifty life, then please get in touch and speak to one of our team on T: 0121 248 3900 or email: [email protected]
*I’m quite happy to do this when someone sends me a personalised request and is nice. I know this sounds like a no-brainer but seriously, you should see my inbox!

hi there, im a 24 year old girl who’s just came across your site and find it awe-inspiring! Personally im not a materialistic person and i try my hardest to get my moneys worth as iv never had great money and been in lots of situations where i cant afford to spend lots of money like most people my age – to be honest i find it crazy how most people my age and under spend lots of money on gadgets & clothing, all replaceable things with only a few minutes of satisfaction and happiness then they look at their bank account and freak out! Not my cuppa tea! So i just wanted to say thank you for writing such an awesome blog and giving me ideas, it’s also keeping me on the straight and narrow with my saving!

I also wanted to ask, as i just read the topic above do you have any suggestions of tv programmes/ documentaries about frugal living and spending tiny amounts or less a day? Would love some more inspiration.

Best wishes & Keep up the good work

Hi Sarah – thank you for the lovely comments! There are some good TV programmes out there – Rip Off Britain is one that springs to mind – but tbh, I find that the blogs out there are more inspiring. I guess I would say that! But seriously: there are loads of good’uns. 🙂
