Zoe Morrison

Hi there, my name is Zoë Morrison and I am the author of Eco Thrifty Living. In 2011 I wanted to quit my job and become a stay at home mum. I didn’t know how I was going to afford it, but I was determined that spending less wasn’t going to be at the expense of the environment or my families quality of life. I became passionate about learning ways to save money and the environment at the same time. In 2012 I walked away from my day job feeling confident that we could thrive on one salary instead of two and I haven’t looked back! Since the beginning I have documented my experiences on my blog. I have learned so much about being eco-friendly, saving money and setting healthy limits when it comes to both of those activities! I love living the eco-friendly thrifty life and am currently writing a book and developing a course about how to be eco-friendly and save money in the kitchen.

  • Excellent Job Zoe! Like you I have discovered frugal living is not only good for the budget but should be mandatory to save our environment. As a result I now keep very little food in the house (except emergency food supplies for earthquakes and floods) and dramatically reduced my purchases of packaged goods. I was getting sick of all the garbage. Keeping little food in the house has also helped me to reduce food waste, chose a few high quality products as opposed to many low quality products) reduce my weight and save about a $1000 per year.

  • Hi Zoe! I'm so excited about finding your blog! We're trying to pay off our mortgage in an (unrealistically!) small amount of time, so I'll definitely be coming here for tips. I write about our efforts on a Saturday, do you mind if I link to here this Saturday?

  • Hello Zoe,

  • I found you through the msn news homepage, 'Thrifty mum gives up loo roll to save money (and the planet)'. It is funny how a news article can skew things a bit, but anyway it worked at grabbing my attention and I'm glad I found your blog as I find it all very interesting. Blogs like this where you share your life will help anyone who comes across it see that minimalism and being eco friendly won't make their life harder but can make them feel so much more at peace. Saving the planet one article at a time. Keep on writing!

  • Hi Zoe, Just heard about you on the radio and it turns out I had already been on your blog before and didn't realise. I feel like I've fallen on your story for the third time and every time I seem to have a new perspective on it! Hopefully one day I can be like you
