Thrifty Thursday {Week 60}

Thrifty Thursday Square

Happy Thursday everyone!  I hope you are having absolutely FABULOUS week so far!  I don’t know about you but I am SO ready for this school year to be over and for summer to begin!  It seems like it is harder and harder to get ourselves out the door each morning, and I feel like we are practically crawling to the finish line.  Thank goodness we’ve only got a few days left!

Speaking of Summer, be sure to check back this afternoon around 3pm EST for information about a super fun Summer Memories Giveaway I will be hosting with seven other amazing bloggers.  If you’ve got kids, trust me when I tell you that this is one giveaway you will NOT want to miss!

Finally, I am also really excited to be hosting a small gathering of Florida bloggers here in Punta Gorda tomorrow!  It is always fun to learn from each other, and I am pumped to get to know some new people.  Our meet-up will include lunch at a local restaurant and semi-structured day of roundtable discussions about a variety of different topics, including social media strategy, newsletters, eBooks, time management, and hiring help.  If you are a Florida blogger, be sure to join our private Facebook group here to join the fun, and if you live in a different state I encourage you to look for ways to connect with other bloggers in your area!  It is always nice to have at least a few people close by who can relate to this crazy world of ours!
