Thrifty Thursday Square

Happy Thursday!  Here at LWSL headquarters my team and I have been busy getting ready for our 2015 session of Elite Blog Academy!  The doors will be opening for one week on April 14th,  and then they won’t open again until 2016!  If you’ve been thinking about taking the course, will not want to miss this window!  (For more information about whether EBA is right for you, check out this post.)  Also, to kick off the launch we will be offering a 24 hour promo code–FIRSTDAY–that you can use to save $75 on the tuition fee.  However, this code will expire at 11:49pm on Tuesday, 4/14, so don’t wait to use it!

In other news, our very last Secret 13 Essay Contest finalist this week was Courtney. You can read her journey here. Voting for Secret 13 will start on Tuesday April 14th as well–be sure to pop by to support your favorite essay.  One lucky finalist will win a 7 day cruise for four on the Carnival Sunshine!

  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!
  3. Try to visit at least a few other blogs at the party. Be sure to leave a comment to let them know you stopped by!
  4. Please link back to this post somehow. There are badges available here; a simple text link is just fine too.
