Thrifty Thursday Square

   Happy Thursday! I hope you are all having a wonderful week! This morning I am getting all packed up to head back up to North Carolina for the Becoming Conference, where I will be sharing four strategies for living Clutter Free Forever. Hopefully I will see some of you there!

In case you missed it, this past Friday I launched my new community site called LWSL Everyday. This new site features an amazing community forum, where members can connect and get advice and accountability for living well on a budget. In addition to the forum, there is additional members-only content that includes fun behind-the-scenes interviews with well-known authors & bloggers, exclusive giveaways, limited edition downloads, and a once-a-month live Q&A session with me. I’d love for you all to come check out it. You can even get a two month free trial here.

    Ruth–I so appreciate your blog. You have been an inspiration to me. I recently had to stop working full-time so I can spend more time taking care of my 90 yr old mother. Thanks to your awesome book, I will soon be posting about my journey. God Bless You!
