Thrifty Thursday {Week 79}

Thrifty Thursday Square

Happy Thursday!  I hope you are all having a fabulous week!  It has been a busy time around the LWSL headquarters, between launching Elite Blog Academy last week, traveling to FinCon this past weekend, hosting an amazing $1200 Stock Your Freezer Giveaway, and then getting ready for our big LWSL Clutter Free Challenge, which starts October 1st!  Whew!

If you haven’t checked out the details of the Clutter Free Challenge, be sure to do that today–I would LOVE to have you join in the fun!!  So far the response has been pretty huge–more than 8,000 readers have signed up so far!  If you have a blog, I would love to have you share your thoughts about the challenge each day in October and then link up your experiences on each day’s posts!

  2. Follow the instructions on the next page – add a great image of your project and an interesting title. Make sure you link to the direct page of your budget friendly post – not the main page of your blog!

    I am psyched about the clutter-free challenge! This is yet another attempt at this for me and I just hope I finish. Sometimes a fresh start in October- rather than January- is what we need!
