Thrifty Thursday {Week 73}

Thrifty Thursday Square

Happy Thursday!  I hope you are all having a fabulous week!  I don’t know about you, but I seriously can’t believe that summer is almost over!  My girls go back to school next week Thursday, but not before we celebrate my oldest daughter’s 8th birthday this weekend. She wants a Lego Friends theme which has been surprisingly challenging!  If you’ve got any fun ideas, please let me know!

Now Available in Paperback Horizontal

In other news, I am excited to let you know that How to Blog for Profit (Without Selling Your Soul) is now available in paperback on!  This expanded 2nd edition contains about 30% more content than the previous version, including a lot more information on Facebook, Pinterest, and a whole new chapter on creating a business plan for your blog.  As much as I love the convenience of a Kindle, there are definitely some books that are better in paperback.  This is is definitely one of them!

    Hi Ruth. I have a bit of “August anxiety” knowing that school is just around the corner. Hope you have a great weekend, and enjoy your daughter’s birthday. So quickly the days slip by while our kids are young. God bless!

    Did you update the kindle version? I thought when you revised it those who purchased the original kindle version would receive the updated version?

    Ruth, I really enjoyed hearing you speak at Becoming 2014. And you know what, I already have the Kindle Version of your book, but you’re right, some books you just need in print! Thanks for hosting and have a great weekend!

    Wet the armpit having a gel as well as cream in order to lessen friction relating to the skin as well as the
    shaver. You don’t need any gel or water with shavers –
    reducing the expense of running them and increasing efficiency a lot more and some
    razors can also clean themselves. Electric shaving your head If
    you have a rotary shaver, then these include the replacement parts you would like to purchase.

    For essentially the most part, somewhat high pressure water
    can already dislodge any errant undesired facial
    hair in your razor heads. This part can readily become dull and useless after heavy use, and once replaced could make your shaver like fresh.
