Hello and welcome to Three Thrifty Guys!

three thrifty guysWe’re glad you stopped by. Our goal here is to help you keep a few more bucks in your pocket (or purses)! We do this by showing you ways to get-out-of-debt, save more money, stretch your dollar and live a thriftier life. From time to time, we also throw in an entertaining post or two to mix things up a bit.

And, to help you navigate the site easier, we have a few places we recommend you browse first that may benefit you. Obviously everyone arrives here with a different financial picture – so we hope there is something that will prove to be of value to you in your current situation.

Here are a few places to start (depending on your unique situation) AND be sure to check-out our Thrifty Checklist page!:

Expense Tracking

One of the best things you can do to get your finances back on track OR to see where all your money goes, is to track your spending for a month. To help, we have created an “Expense Register” (3MB PDF) to track all your spending for an entire month.

Just log all your expenses each day in the booklet and also note whether the expense is a “need” in the box next to the item and what you paid.expense-register

At the end of the day, just add up your total expenses for that day.

When you come to the end of the month, add up all your expenses for each day. For comparison, add up all the items you marked as “needs”. This will help you narrow down what you need to bring in every month and to adjust accordingly.

If you’d like to print out the document (and to save paper), go to “Paper Scaling” in the print dialogue box and select “Multiple Pages Per Sheet” in the drop-down menu (You’ll see this if you are in Acrobat Reader).


Have fun and happy tracking!
