Thrifty Thursday {Week 80}

Thrifty Thursday Square

Happy Thursday! My head is still spinning a little from the whirlwind of the past few weeks but I am SO excited that October is finally here!  My husband and I are super pumped to tackle the clutter this month in every area of our home–I’m pretty sure that he is even more excited than I am!

If you haven’t checked out the details of the Clutter Free Challenge, be sure to do that today–we would LOVE to have you join in the fun!  If you are blogging your way through the challenge you will be able to link up each day, and you can share photos of your progress on Instagram, Twitter, & Facebook using hashtag #LWSLClutterFree.

    I can’t wait to read the transitioning your wardrobe into fall and winter post! I’m learning how to layer better so I can use my summer items during the fall, too.

    You’re a lucky gal to have a husband who’s more eager to clear the clutter than you, Ruth. 😉 Many guys, mine included, don’t see it. I guess that’s a mixed blessing, isn’t it? 🙂

    Hope your week has been extraordinary!
