Luxembourg – Thank You!

I’m very grateful to and particularly to Jess ­čÖé who managed to write a lovely article about my recent post about Giving At Luxembourg.

You can easily find the interview in the following link:

Expat mum’s clear-out gives hope to hard-up residents

I must say that the word was really spread away as in just a few hours I got some e-mails of people interested in participate in this idea as well! It’s so wonderful! ­čÖé

Now it’s time to continue working on helping each other as well as ourselves. And most important, to keep the project alive!

I think it’s also time to all of us re-think the way we live. The installed economical crisis is affecting most of the families around the world, not only the poorest. This shouldn’t mean we’d all get pessimist and negative. In the matter of fact, I believe it’s our chance to reinvent ourselves and be criative!

Be Creative! Be Frugal! Be Happier with Less!

So, I’m starting a new series of posts on 101 Saving Strategies on our day-to-day life. From grocery management to cleaning stuff, from entretaining to kids activities.

Let’s share some great ideas and begin 2013 on the most positive way!

PS: Feel free to send me some ideas directly by e-mail if you prefer.


Luxembourg – Giving 2 Someone – Please Help

As some of you know, I recently moved to Luxembourg to start a new life with my husband and kids. As we had the chance to move with all our belongings, I got almost everything packed and sent to our new home. As I was unpacking, I realised that it just didn’t make sense to keep everything, since there were several things we just don’t use a lot. In fact, it just clicked in my mind that it is time to make a change in my life and live with what we really need.

So than I made a list of the home stuff I should get rid off and once again I realised that was quite a lot. that stuff could really mean something for someone else.

As I am quite new in Luxembourg, I don’t have the local contacts to charity associations. So I posted on some local web forums and I got quite surprised with the amount of people who are really in need for everything you can imagine. I received several e-mails from people who came in search of a big dream with little more than their personal clothes. But I have just a few items to give away.

That’s why I writing today for you guys: if you live in Luxembourg, please do some decluttering at home and see what stuff do you have to give away. From pans to bowls, from furniture to clothes… Everything, since it’s in reasonable conditions. for example, there are 2 families in need for a washing machine and some cabinets. Than send me an email for

Having a list of who has what, we can than arrange the contacts and delivering within the receiver.

Please note that I am not a charity associations, I’m just someone who want to help other people…
