Thrifty Thursday Square

Happy Thursday! I hope you are all having a fabulous week & staying healthy during this crazy cold & flu season! My girls have been fighting off the sniffles this week but seem to be winning the battle. After being sick almost constantly for the past two winters, we started using essential oils last fall and I haven’t been sick at all since! I never thought I would be such a convert to the oil craze, but they have seriously worked wonders in our home! (If you’ve ever thought about trying them, you can find out more HERE.)

In other news, our Secret 13 Essay Contest finalist this week was Amanda  from “Letters to Samantha” , who wrote about the lessons she learned after her home was destroyed by a flash flood. You can read her journey here. 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!

Finally, don’t forget to enter our fun #LWSL book@ Target Instagram Contest for a chance to win one of FIVE $100 Target Gift Cards! Today is the LAST DAY to enter, so don’t wait! All you have to do is first make sure you are following @RuthSoukup, then snap a picture of Living Well, Spending Less: 12 Secrets of the Good Life inside of or in front of any Target store, & share it on Instagram using hashtag #LWSLbook. You can find out more details HERE!
