Thrifty Thursday Linky Party at!


Happy New Year my Thrifty Thursday friends! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas break, and I wish you all much health and happiness for 2014! I don’t know about you but I just love the promise that a new year brings! There is nothing quite as motivating as a fresh start, and I am especially excited to see all your ideas & tips for cleaning, organizing, & saving money, which are three of my big goals this year!

If you haven’t already, I invite you to join over 5,000 LWSL readers in our private Living Well Spending Less Facebook group, where we have committed to a No-Spend Challenge this January, using the guidelines laid out in this 31 Days of Living Well & Spending Zero series. It is so fun and motivating to have such a great support group of like-minded friends, and this very active group is FULL of amazing ideas! Also, if you are participating in the challenge, be sure to use the hashtags #31days #livingwellspendingzero and #LWSZ when sharing on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram!
