It’s Frugal Friday! The time when we take a few moments to focus on tips and hints for frugal living.
When summer comes, it’s a great time to do some cleaning, and in our house, cleaning involves a lot of organization too! Sorting through papers, keeping what we need, getting rid of things we don’t need…it feels so much better to get things more organized.
The same is true for frugal living: the more organized you can be, the easier it is to stick to your frugal living goals. That’s why I’m so excited to share these free printable resources with you. We’ve talked many times about how meal planning can help you stick to your grocery budget. There are several printables for meal planning, along with a weekly grocery expense tracker, inventory lists, and more. You can pin this post to keep them handy for future reference, or you can find them all the time by hovering over “Frugal Living” in the menu bar above, then hover over Shoestring Meal Planning and select “Meal Planning FREE Printables” from the drop-down menu.
I hope you find these resources useful to you–I find that having things like this posted where I can see them and update them as needed helps me stay on track and be successful with my frugal living goals. Let us know what you think!
