Control Your Spending With A Free Thrifty Habits Planner For The Week Beginning Monday 18th May

Free Thrifty Habits Planner For The Week Beginning Monday 18th May

Regularly, Consistently, Habitually Thrifty

Thrifty Habits PlannerWe 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 Thrifty Habits

It’s Preserve Something week – and it looks like my thrifty deli will not be taking any deliveries this month. I was hoping to try elderflower champagne this month but my elder is barely in leaf never mind in flower. Scotland appears to have skipped straight from spring to early winter this year and everything in the garden is running late as a result.  So instead, I will click through my Preserve Something board on Pinterest and day dream about next month. And I will take the chance to sort through all my preserving equipment so that I am ready for the rush when summer final comes to Scotland. Hope the sun is shining wherever you are.

How To Use The Thrifty Habits Planner

Click here to download your copy of this week’s Thrifty Habits Planner. You can look up each habit in The Thrifty Habits in the sidebar to the right for more information.

Look at the Weekly & Monthly/Annual Thrifty Habits.  Decide which day suits you best for each one and pencil it in on that day.  When you have done it, tick it off.  Pause for a moment to enjoy the little fizz of smugness this creates.

Got any thrifty ideas of your own?  Add them – and remember to comment about them here so I can steal them admire your cleverness.

Take time at the end of the week to give yourself a little treat as a reward for your thrifty efforts. Then bin this week’s planner and come back to Tartan Thrifty for next week’s planner.  I will post it on Saturday 23rd May.
