Thrifty Thursday Square

Happy Thursday! I hope you are having an absolutely fantastic week! We are busy getting into the swing of our new school schedule which has definitely been an adjustment–particularly trying to get our kids up and at ’em in the morning! Luckily our new Sunday Prep plan has helped a lot but I think it may still be a few weeks before we have our routine down pat.

If you haven’t already, be SURE to enter the Frigidaire Time Saving Freezer Cooking Sweepstakes! THREE lucky readers will win a Frigidaire 2-in-1 Convertible Freezer/Refrigerator of your very own, which means this is one sweepstakes that you will seriously NOT want to miss!! Entering is easy–simply sign up with your email, then submit a link to your own Freezer Cooking Pinterest board. Check out all the details HERE.
