Thrifty Thursday {Week 42}

Thrifty Thursday Linky Party at!

Happy Thursday!  I hope you are all managing to stay warm wherever you are during this very, very cold winter week!  I realize the “cold” 40 degree weather we’ve had here in Florida doesn’t compare to the sub-zero temperatures many of you are dealing with, but I’m still hoping things will warm up soon! 🙂  In the meantime, I plan to stay cozy and have fun checking out all the great budget friendly recipes, DIY projects, and money saving tips you all have to share this week!

    You know it’s cold when Florida is in the 40s! Up north we’ve had sub zero temps and I’m so thankful it’s warmed up into the 30s! The cold weather has made me very thankful for a roof over my head and a warm bed to sleep in! I hope it warms up for you soon Ruth!

    Good News–PA weather is breaking into the 30’s today. I can put away my cuddle duds until the next Polar Vortex strikes. I didn’t know it was possible for the weather in Florida to dip into the 40’s. 40’s seems so balmy to me!

    Thanks for the linky! I look forward to it every week.

    How exciting to see my post ‘TOP 10 HOMESTEADING POSTS OF THE YEAR” is being featured this week – Thanks! Love the hop, thanks for hosting.

    Hi, Thanks for the link party. I thought I got here early….but I am still in about 90th place with the Blueberry Cheesecake Waffles. What time does this go live? I posted at 7:00 am MST and am pretty far down on the list. Is there a set time it goes live each week? I’d like to get here when it opens. Thank you in advance for the information.

    Our 50 degree weather here in California is cold for us, also! There are definitely times of the year I’m happy to live in a sunny state. Thank you for hosting such a great party!

    game is its music, which consists of cool guitar solos! Mobile handsets are coming up with the newest technology
    and they are able to cope with the most recent
    java games with 3D graphics.
