How to set default droplet size selection?

Posted February 19, 2015 2.3k views

I set up a billing notification so if my bill went over $x (the exact amount I expect for the month) I receive an email. I received a notification today and, upon inspection, it looks like I set up a VM in the $10/mo. tier (default) instead of my intended $5/mo. tier. I was wondering if anyone knows of a way to change the default size from the $10/mo. tier to the smaller size at $5/mo? Obviously I will be more cautious future-forward, but I still would like to have the smallest size by default.

When you visit the create page the 1GB plan is always selected both because it is the most popular plan and because it is not recommended to run some of our one-click images (like Wordpress) on a 512MB droplet.

I understand, but since I am using the VMs to run small projects (I am a student), I wanted to change the default to something smaller :)
