Week 1 – December 2nd, 2019
Make something? Is she mad? I can’t find time to eat or sleep at the moment…
How about a really easy make then? This is the perfect time to throw together a jar or two of Snowy Road Mix. If you have zero baking skills you can still assemble ingredients in a jar and if you have zero crafting skills you can still print out the label and cut it out.
Snowy Road makes a perfect hostess gift for a hostess with little helpers. It’s also a handy thing to have in the cupboard if you have to come up with a donation for the Cake And Candy stall at the Christmas Fayre. Pack it up with a cute mini-apron and some bake-ware and it is an easy kid’s gift. Click here for easy instructions and a downloadable label.

I will be back next week with a fresh thrifty habits planner and advice about thrifty festive outings.
Free, Downloadable Thrifty Habits Planner To Keep You On Track
So, you want to get into the habit of spending less without putting in more effort? You need something to remind you what to do and when, so you don’t have to keep thinking about it. The Thrifty Habits Planner is a simple tool to help you do just that. Use it to pencil in which thrifty things you plan to do this week and to pin yourself down to when you plan to do them. If you take control this way at the start of the week, you are far more likely to have stuck to your plan by the end of the week. Sticking your plan up somewhere you will see it every day helps you to stay on track too.
Take time at the end of the week to give yourself a little treat as a reward for your thrifty efforts. Little splurges will actually help you to stay thrifty – read this to find out how.
