Thrifty Thursday Linky Party at!

Happy Thursday my thrifty friends!  There is less than one week left until Christmas–are you ready?

Just a heads up that next week there will be no link party, but we will be back in two weeks, on January 2nd, for the first Thrifty Thursday of 2014.  As always, I am excited to once again see all the  great budget-friendly recipes, household tips, DIY projects, last minute Christmas and New Year’s ideas you all have to share this week!

Here are the most clicked links from last week:

  1. Scroll down, find the little blue “Add your Link” Button and click on that.
  2. Follow the instructions on the next page – add a great image of your project and an interesting title. Make sure you link to the direct page of your budget friendly post – not the main page of your blog!
  3. Try to visit at least a few other blogs at the party. Be sure to leave a comment to let them know you stopped by!
  4. Please link back to this post somehow. There are badges available here; a simple text link is just fine too.
