Thrifty Thursday {Week 95}

Thrifty Thursday Square

Happy Thursday! I hope you are all having a fabulous first week of February! For the most part it has been a pretty low-key week around here, but today we are enjoying the company of my adorable friend Renee Swope and her sweet family.  I love it when my online friends become real-life friends!

In other news, don’t forget to enter our fun #LWSL book@ Target Instagram Contest for a chance to win one of FIVE $100 Target Gift Cards!  All you have to do is first make sure you are following @RuthSoukup, then snap a picture of Living Well, Spending Less: 12 Secrets of the Good Life inside of or in front of any Target store, & share it on Instagram using hashtag #LWSLbook.  You can find out more details HERE!

      Wow! I’m so glad I found the link up through your blog Kristia!
      Thanks for hosting Ruth. I remember when I was getting started in frugal living and budgeting there was another link up that’s no longer active, and I would go through every week learning as much as I could. I’m so happy to be able to contribute resources to other ladies who are now on the same journey!
