Thrifty Thursday: All sorts of fun info!

I've recently had the privilege of meeting a great group of local bloggers and women in media. One refreshing commonality among us is we want to work together to keep moms like you and me "in the know" and make one another day to day's routine a little easier while adding a little pizazz to the underpaid yet best job on earth called motherhood.

There's a lot going on out there, and on this Thrifty Thursday, here is what these women want you to know.
  • It's no secret the ladies of the Roof LOVE consignment stores and sales. It seems most of our favs end up clothing our quivers. Now, there is one to clothe US!
