Friday Freebie: “Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without!” Printable

Post last updated on July 22, 2017

I like buying things that make my life easier or better. Unfortunately, I’ve had to learn that, for the good of my budget, I have to delay replacing things that still work, even if the replacements would make life simpler. As an example, I really want a wifi thermostat. I would love to be able to change the thermostat in the middle of the night without getting out of bed. But my existing programmable thermostat is just two years old, and I can’t justify the expense until the thermostat is no longer functioning correctly. Some other purchases that are on the eventually list: a Ninja coffee bar, an Excalibur dehydrator, a MacBook, and a new television.

That said, I keep created this printable a few years ago, and I keep it displayed as a reminder that needs and wants are two very different things.

I have one with a black background in my home, but I’ve also created one with a white background and black text.

And I decided to share it with you, friends.  You have to be a subscriber to access it, though.  Just click here to subscribe and confirm your e-mail address.  As a subscriber you’ll get the password to the freebies vault by e-mail.  Go to the vault and click on the appropriate link.

Save time, save money, save your sanity!  This printable can serve as a reminder to save your money instead of spending it on something you don’t need.  As an added benefit, if you’re buying fewer items you don’t need, you’re keeping your house clutter-free.

Spread the word:  If you like this printable, I’d love it if you’d share the picture below on Pinterest.

You can also share this printable with a friend using the links below this post or on the left side of the page.  (I do ask that you not forward the printable directly to your friend, as you’ll see in the terms of use.)

Warmly,
