Thrifty Thursday Square

Happy Thursday! I have been in Orlando all week attending the Launch Conference, and let me just tell you….it has blown my mind! As a small business owner, I sometimes get so caught up in the day-to-day busyness of writing articles, responding to emails, & connecting on social media that I forget to sometimes stop to look at the big picture–who I am, where I’m going, and how I’m going to get there. It has been an incredibly inspiring couple of days and my team and I have some exciting ideas we definitely want to implement in the coming year. So stay tuned!

Just as a reminder that 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!
