Welcome to Thrifty Thursdays!

Amanda has started a new feature at her Cooking blog: Thrifty Thursdays! Here's a description of this feature:

while I love to constantly try new recipes, I find it a challenge to make some of them because I may not have all the ingredients. In these tough economic times, I and many others like me are trying to tighten our belts and save money wherever we can. Running to the store every time I want to try something new isn't always feasible. Making home cooked meals every night for dinner is a big part of saving money. The amount of cash that people dish out for fast food is astronomical, but sometimes it can be really hard when you work full time, have soccer practice, dance recitals and a barrage of others things going on. That's where the idea behind Thrifty Thursdays comes in!

My thought was that anyone who wants to participate can post something on Thursday with "Thrifty Thursday" in the title, whether it be a cost effective recipe, a fun gadget you got from a thrift store or garage sale, or maybe a great sale on some edibles! In your post link to the blog event for the week so others can join too! Whatever it is, we can do a round up, everyone can visit each other's frugal find(s) or creation(s) for the week and we'll all glean some new ideas and tips. I can get one of those Mr Linky things to make the round up easy. The only requirement would be that the post needs to be food, kitchen, garden or home related.
If you have your own blog, you can participate right there at Amanda's blog by adding a link to the Thrifty Thursday post you make at your blog.

But if you don't have a blog, you won't be left out in the cold! All you need to do is post your Thrifty Thursday idea right here at Family Corner! Each week we will open up a thread in this forum, titled Thrifty Thursday for (date). The link to that thread will be added to the Mr. Linky at Amanda's blog. So readers of the blog can visit Family Corner and see all the frugal ideas that have been posted here. And Family Corner members can visit Amanda's blog and follow the links to the many blogs that have signed on to participate in Thrifty Thursday.
