Thrifty Thursday {Week 85}

Thrifty Thursday Square

Happy Thursday….and Happy November!  I don’t know about you but I feel like this year has literally FLOWN by.  I seriously can’t believe that Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner!  In case you missed it earlier this week, the 2014 edition of the LWSL Holiday Planning Guide is now available.  It is a fabulous resource for keeping your schedule and budget under control, and for staying focused on what matters most.  Oh, and it’s free!  Be sure to grab yours HERE!

In other news, the Ultimate Christian Living Bundle sale is happening right now.  If you like books this is one sale you won’t want to miss–for five days only you can get $1100 worth of books and bonuses for just $34.95!  Get all the details HERE.

    Thank you so much for the planning guide. I usually get started making gifts on Nov. 1, but need a little get-up-and-go this year! Maybe the guide will do it!

    Too fast, it goes by! Once we hit November 1, my mind is on Christmas and Thanksgiving. I’ve even wrapped a few gifts. Thanks for hosting!

    I know. It truly has flown by. Incredible. It’s been a great fall but don’t know where time has gone. Need to get to planning by weeks to make the most of them. Want to enjoy every moment.
    Have a blessed day Ruth!
