Thanks for Joining Me

This is just a quick not to say thanks for joining me in a chat session on Saturday. Whether you participated actively or just read along, it was fun and informative. I learned a lot and I hope that you did, too.

If there's interest, I'd like to do this again. Ruthie had mentioned the possibility of doing this with a themed topic -- Christmas gifts. I had the same thought, so this would be awesome to share all of our Christmas/holiday gift or special foods ideas that fit within a frugal framework. I've been putting together my own list and will share what I've come up with so far.

I'll look over my own schedule and see if this is doable on a Saturday in a couple of weeks. I'll give you all more advance warning this time. I had been thinking of hosting a chat session for a while but my fears of what if no one participates would put me off of the idea, time and again.

So, be thinking about your favorite frugal gift or food (homemade, store-bought, or semi-homemade) for winter holidays. If there's something that you've made before, if you can either link to instructions or provide simple how-tos, that would be great. If it's just something that has inspired you and you'e thinking about making/doing it, provide a link or a screen shot of the item. I've got a few of those, too, on my list.

Again, thanks for being there. A lot of fabulous ideas and shared knowledge!


  1. Hi Lili, the weekend chat was great... only wish I knew about it ahead of time...I was a one off the readers only cause I didn't see it til Sunday. Thank you for doing that and wanting to do others in the future. I am putting on my thinking cap for your holiday one! Thanks again and have a great day!

  2. I think the chat is a great idea. I was able to see a bit of it, but Saturday mornings are usually a busy time for me. However, I can come back later and see all of the great ideas everyone kindly shares.

  3. Hi Lisa,
    I'll let you know about the next one more in advance.
    Hope your week is off to a great start!

  4. You're welcome, Lona. Thanks for participating!

  5. Hi live and learn,
    Yeah, I knew Saturday would be a tough day for a lot of people. But it was what would work for me this past week. I'm sorry about that.
    I hope your week is going well.
