This week I have been largely thinking about shopping. we have a holiday coming up and there is stuff we need for it HOWEVER money is tight so I am having to think around it. I am prepared to spend as little as poss.
I have some thrifty tools up my sleeve:
I revisit my money saving Pinterest board where I have collated lots and lots of fab thrifty ideas.
I have the perfect shopping list, in actual fact the only shopping list you will ever need
I have been working on mindfulness so I dont make hasty decisions but stay calm and present to the moment (and dont start madly clicking on amazon ) As a family we have been working through the exercise in the fabulous book I am here now
I have also been checking out the charity shops (new is so overrated) for summer clothes. A charity shop haul can save you a fortune
I keep reading my favourite thrifty blogs for inspiration on shopping well on a budget (or not shopping) to keep my thrifty mindset strong.
These will keep me on a thrifty track!
