Thrifty Thursday Square

Happy New Year and WELCOME BACK to Thrifty Thursday! It feels like forever since we’ve all gotten together, and I’ve missed you!! I hope you are all had a wonderful holiday and that 2015 has been absolutely fantastic for you so far! Here at Living Well Spending Less it has been an exciting couple of weeks. My new book, Living Well Spending Less: 12 Secrets of the Good Life arrived in bookstores last Tuesday, which has been a lot of fun (and a little crazy!)

Then, this past Tuesday we kicked off our Secret 13 Essay Contest with this powerful entry from Maggie at The Love Nerds. If you haven’t had a chance to read it yet, be sure to check it out–it is really good! There is still plenty of time to submit your own entry for a chance to win an all expenses paid cruise for four on the Carnival Sunshine, so be sure to check out all the details HERE!

In other news, I just wanted to remind you that Weekend Wandering will now go live on Saturday mornings instead of Sundays. One of my biggest goals this year is balance, which means trying to find one day of the week where I stay off the computer altogether. Wish me luck! 🙂  (Oh, and if you want to follow my progress on meeting my goals this year, be sure to join our community site at LWSL Everyday. Right now you can join absolutely free!)
