Thrifty Thursday {Week 38}

Thrifty Thursday Linky Party at!

Welcome back to Thrifty Thursday!  I missed you last week but I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends!  Did any of you brave the crowds on Black Friday?  I’d love to hear what you found!  Is it just me or does it feel like we lost a week somewhere along the way?  How is it that Christmas is now only 20 days away?!!  Ack!  In any case, I can’t wait to see what great budget-friendly recipes, household tips, DIY projects, and holiday ideas you all have to share this week!

    Haha! Yes….I think we lost a whole month! November was just a flash!
    I think I had my best Black Friday yet. We traveled to see family and didn’t even darken the threshold of a store, nor do any decorating either. I have to say….it was pretty refreshing.
    As it’s *already* Thursday!!! Wishing you an Extraordinary weekend!

    I certainly can’t believe it’s nearly Christmas – this month is flying past. Hope you have a wonderful Thursday Ruth!!

    Thanks for hosting! Yes, it’s pretty hard to believe that Christmas is slow close.
    I’ll be checking out the post about buying gifts at thrift stores. I’ve done that. Sometimes the receiver knows it’s a gift from a thrift shop; sometimes they don’t. I don’t always share the info since people can be funny about thrifted gifts.

    Hi, new follower here. Would love to connect on “Thrifty Thursday” soon. I’m all about being a cheapskate… er, I mean being frugal. 😉 But really, I believe that less is more.

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a
    comment is added I get several e-mails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Appreciate it!
