Thrifty Thursday Blog Hop #1 12/02/10

I am happy to debut my new blog hop: Thrifty Thursday!! The theme is thrift (yeah, I know… didn’t need to be said)… go crazy. Anything to save our families money over the holiday season and year round. This can be a DIY, craft or other project, money saving tip, frugal recipe, whatever blog post you want to link up on the topic.
Check out the other blogs, follow and follow back if you like. Please please please grab the button and help get the word out about my hop. Have fun, and follow the first three entries. Check back next Thursday to see if your blog is one of the two chosen to be featured on Thrifty Thursday!

This weeks featured thrifty posts;
