Watch the quick video tutorial above to show you how the Money Habitudes cards work.

The Money Habitudes® card game is essentially a communication tool to help people understand their own money behaviour and to get people talking about money in a fun, easy and non-confrontational way.

What are ‘Money Habitudes’?

Money Habitudes® are a tool to help people understand their habits and attitudes relating to money. Designed like a card game, it was designed to help show how these are often the real reason for financial problems, especially in relationships, rather than money itself.

Financial habits and attitudes can be the underlying issue when couples argue about money, when a rich person hoards money, or when one friend is always borrowing money while another won't let others pay the bill. Working through this special pack of cards with statements relating to money behaviour - one's dominant Money Habitudes personality type - it soon becomes apparent: whether you're focused on Planning, Security, Status, Giving, Carefree, or Spontaneous. The cards then lead to ideas for action to experiment with different behaviour in order to achieve a more balanced way of dealing with money.

I facilitate the Money Habitudes® card game with individuals, couples or groups within workshops. I also introduce them in each of my Financial Coach Practitioner Certificate training courses: Money Habitudes. If you are interested in purchasing Money Habitudes, you can order the cards directly from me and save on shipping from the US (contact/selling details etc). I also have worksheets available that can be used by financial planners, counsellors or anyone who wants to help their clients address the way they relate to money.

The cards retail at £19.99 including VAT, plus postage and packaging. Please get in touch if you’re interested in buying a pack(s).

The game is also available online.

There's no right or wrong – there are advantages and challenges to each dominant Money Habitudes type. It’s simply a way of looking clearly at the situation and understanding yourself and each other better, with no judging involved at all.
