Thrifty Thursday {Week 71}

Thrifty Thursday Square

 Happy Thursday!  I hope you are all having a wonderful week–can you believe it is already the last day of JULY?  Seriously, where did the summer go?!!  I had an amazing time at the SheSpeaks conference last weekend, and loved catching up many of you.  I am now getting ready to head back to North Carolina–this time to Asheville–to speak at the Becoming Conference.  Have you heard of it?  It was founded by Jenny Martin of Southern Savers & Jen Schmidt of Balancing Beauty and Bedlam, and is an uplifting and encouraging conference that focuses on becoming purposeful, creative, and frugal.  If you live within driving distance, I highly recommend it, and I would absolutely LOVE to see you there!

In other news, I am getting ready to make a BIG announcement here at Living Well Spending Less tomorrow, August 1st!  I can’t wait to share what I’ve been working on for these past few months, so BE SURE to stop back tomorrow morning around 9am EST to find out the exciting news!
