Thrifty Thursday Square

Happy Thursday friends! I hope you are all having a fantastic week. Can you believe there is only a week left until Christmas? And, since both Christmas and New Year’s Day fall on a Thursday, that means that after today there will be NO Thrifty Thursday for the next 2 weeks! We will see you back on January 8th!

In the meantime, I hope you will pop by the week of December 30th to join in all the fun for the launch of Living Well Spending Less: 12 Secrets of the Good Life, including an AWESOME essay contest in which the winner will receive–wait for it–an all-expenses paid one week cruise for 4 onboard the Carnival Sunshine!  Woot woot! You can check out the details about the essay contest HERE, or check out our blogger resource page HERE.

Merry Christmas!

    Hi Ruth. I always enjoy Thrifty Thursday and all of the ideas. Thanks for hosting, and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

    I think it’s a great idea that you’re taking the next two weeks off from the party. I think that really helps the blogging community “unplug” and connect with our family and friends during Christmas and New Years! Have a Merry Christmas & thanks so much for hosting!
