Thrifty Things To Do This Week – Work Your Receipts To Max Your Cash

Week 3 – April 16th, 2018

It’s the third week of the month: if you can make the time, Preserve Something and Review Your Spending

Reviewing your spending – taking time to go over your receipts or bank statements and work out where your money is going – saves you money by helping you stay in control of your own spending. But… could it help you save money in other ways too?

I have been reading 6 Simple Ways  To Save Money By Tracking Your Receipts on Wise Bread. It has given me some ideas for how to make more of this thrifty monthly habit. I love the idea of using my receipts to actually make money once I have used them to help me save money and spend less. Take a look and see which ideas you could try.

Think this all sounds like too much hassle? Set yourself a time limit – fifteen minutes, say. Nothing seems like too much effort when you only have to spend quarter of an hour on it. Or do it in the advert breaks while you watch TV. Tiny effort, big results.

I will be back next week with a fresh Thrifty Habits Planner and advice on how to kit kids out for school on a budget.

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.
