Big Talk- How to be Hard Up and Happy

Hard up and Happy
Date: Saturday 17th September
Time: 13:00 - 14:00
Location: Lawn

Amy Kelly writes the How to be Hard up and Happy blog. She is married to Paul and between them they have 5 children. They have brought them up on a very tight budget, in fact everything they have done has been on a budget. Christmases, birthdays and even their wedding.

Amy will be sharing her secrets to a happy life, no matter what the bank balance in conversation with Stella Hall, Festival Director. As the eldest of nine children, Stella also learnt early on the importance of thrift – she is currently spending a year without buying any new clothes or household items. Don’t let money dictate how happy you are. Have fun, live life to the full, but pay as little as possible to do so. Join Amy at the Festival and on her website for tips, recipes and more. Create magic for your family for free!
