Thrifty Thursday Square

Happy Thursday!  I hope you are all having a fabulous first week of April.  Does anyone else feel like their calendar is a little crazy for the next couple of months?  As much as I love springtime, it does seem like everything happens all at the same time!  I’m trying hard to take it one day at a time and just enjoy each moment as it comes, but I am definitely feeling the crunch.  How do you deal with added stress from a busy schedule?

If you haven’t already, you might want to consider joining our collaborative Thrifty Thursday Pinterest Board.  It is open to anyone who links up regularly here at Thrifty Thursday, and you may pin up to two of your own budget-friendly pins per day.  To be added to the board, you must first be following LWSL on Pinterest.  Once you are following, just shoot me an email at & I will make sure you are added to the board!

    Hi Ruth!
    May was always the crazy month…hands down…worse than December. But, I think the way many tried to lessen May’s craze was to push things into April. I’m sorry I don’t have any suggestions other than to schedule a little bit of time into the week for a stroll through a park or woods to revel in nature and God’s handiwork. It somehow restores my spirit. Taking a camera along is great, because that slows me down even more.
    I hope you have some breathing room….
