Every Little Helps!

Benjamin Franklin is supposed to have said…

penny saved

[mind you, allegedly he also said “Guests, like fish, begin to smell after three days.” and “Never take a wife till thou hast a house (and a fire) to put her in.”]

There were a lot of comments on the ‘Mean, Mean, Mean’ post.  I have realised that there are 5 Thursdays in September, so I am planning to make my post on each of them something related to thrift with hints and tips on money saving.

If you want to join in, and post a few ideas, thrifty recipes, frugal hints, links to other good websites, whatever – well that would be brilliant. Leave a comment here so that I can post a link to your blog, and put the logo in your sidebar. Unlike Mags and Floss, I have not done one of these before – so please be patient if I don’t get the technical bit right.

To finish with, here’s a picture of thrift flowers growing along the Norfolk coast. So pretty!

The plant 's name 'thrift' possibly came about as with its compact shape it serves to conserve the plant's water supply.

  1. Looking forward to Thrifty Thursdays. Hoping to pick up some tips during this dreaded '5 week month'. Not very technical myself - do I just copy and paste the logo into my sidebar?

  2. I loved your Mean, Mean, Mean post so witty and yet took me until the telephone directories to feel sure that it was mostly fiction. I will defiantly be joining in with Thrifty Thursday posts and cant wait to read your own and everyone else's posts.

  3. I don't think I need to do the Year of Living Small- I just need you! I will definitely join in- but more to learn than to have anything to share- that's pretty reflective of my whole blogging experience, really!

  4. Looking forward to getting some thrifty ideas. Am hoping that I actually have a few myself, other than washing out baggies.

    Great idea, Angela!
