Happy Sunday! I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend! There were 465 budget-friendly blog posts linked up this past week at Thrifty Thursday and I think this was the hardest time I’ve ever had choosing favorites because everything looked absolutely incredible. Y’all are amazing! If you haven’t had a chance yet, seriously go check out all the other posts from the Thursday post. There are some fabulous looking recipes, creative DIY projects, and really smart money saving tips.
But while I was sorry I couldn’t pick them all, here are a few of the posts I really loved this week:
