Thrifty Thursday Square

Happy Thursday! I hope you are all having a great week and staying warm and healthy in what can be an icky time of year! After I was sick almost constantly last year, this year I have been a little fanatical about taking care of myself. I have been a lot more careful about getting enough sleep, and I have also been using essential oils to boost my immune system. The difference has been incredible! I am so much more productive when I am not constantly battling a cold or the flu or strep throat or bronchitis or pneumonia!

In other news, our Secret 13 Essay Contest finalist this week was Amy from You can read her  journey here. Be sure to check it out–it is both inspiring and hilarious! 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!

Also, be sure you don’t miss out on this year’s Ultimate DIY Bundle! There are some really great books included this year! You can see all my picks HERE.
