Control Your Spending With This Week’s Free Thrifty Habits Planner
Free Thrifty Habits Planner For The Week Beginning Monday 29th June
Regularly, Consistently, Habitually Thrifty
We all want to know how to save money. After years of frugal living and not-so-frugal living I have come to the conclusion that the answer to the question of how to save money is… regularly, consistently, habitually. It’s not just what thrifty tips you take on board, or how many money-saving ideas you pin to a Thrifty Living Pinterest board – it’s how easy it is to make those money-saving tips into regular, almost mindless habits. We all spend without thinking: my aim on Tartan Thrifty is to save money without thinking, to make thrifty living second nature. Because, the less effort you put into living well for less, the more likely you are to keep it up. So here is the Thrifty Habits Planner I print off and stick up in the kitchen each week – yours to download for free and customise to fit in with your life. I hope it helps you become regularly, consistently, habitually thrifty too.
This Week’s Habits
It’s time to put cash in marked purses to keep you on-budget. It’s also time to make something. It’s thrifty, it might be good for you and summer time is the perfect time to try a new creative hobby because you can mess up the outdoors instead of your home. (This tells you a lot about how my creative attempts usually pan out.) I am still exploring making candles and have taken a whole bunch of wax. wicks and wildly fragrant “Bakery” candle-scent oils on holiday with me. I haven’t actually run this past the lovely lady who rents us her house – she may feel differently about her house smelling like a patisserie. Maybe candles are an outdoor hobby too… What are you making this month?
