Can this really be the last day in June! We're really in summer now. Hello humidity! We've had a "cold" front come through recently, so it hasn't been as hot as it usually is this time of year. It's a welcome relief! Although, it hasn't stopped the mosquitoes from attacking us. Anyone have good tips for keeping them at bay without spending a ton of money on name brand repellents? They're driving me nuts! Enough about the weather and the bugs . . .
I announced yesterday that I've changed the name of this link-up to Wallet-Friendly Wednesday. WFW is an opportunity for you to share your latest bargain shopping finds, thrift store outfit deals, DIY projects, side-of-the-road pick-ups, consignment shop steals . . . ANYTHING you've done that's saved your money. Use your imagination! Share whatever you've done to save money recently! List it here so that other Bargain Shopping Paradise readers can get inspired. It's a great way to share ideas, and I love seeing how creative everyone gets when it comes to saving money! Please only list family-friendly links. Include your blog name and the name of your "brag" in your link.
I just have to say that you all (BSP readers) are an amazingly creative bunch! Every week, I'm so excited to take a look at what you all are doing to save money. It's so inspiring!
