In an effort to diversify my weekly postings, I am changing Thursdays from Thrifty Thursdays to This Week Thursdays. I figure between Money Monday and Save-It Saturday, there are tons of thrifty ideas being posted. On Thursdays, I will post links to various things I have found on the web, mainly what others are blogging about, contests, and freebies.
