Thrifty Thursdays

I have been thinking over the past few weeks how can we make this site more useful and also more fun. So I will be introducing a few things which I think will be very Popular and exciting to everyone.

The first thing I thought about was Introducing a Thrifty Thursday. I thought that each Thursday I could like a few really good deals that I have found and give a tip or two on becoming more Thrifty, ways to make a little bit of extra cash, or ways to save a little bit of cash. So as time goes by I will try to show more deals and extra money saving tips but as this is our first week Im just kind of putting a taster out there. If you like this idea please comment and let me know.

And for a THRIFTY TIP!

We only have a few months until Christmas. Are you looking to make a little bit of extra money? Well one way that I have found to make a few extra pennies is through online surveys. I will admit that you dont make loads of money but I have made about £150 ($200) over the last year doing online surveys. So are you wondering where to do them? Well in the UK the best one I have found isLightspeed Research Limited. They also have one in the US too. And the rewards are great. They pay you into a paypal account. Plus they pay you when your credit is really low not like some others which make you wait until you have over $20 or £20 in your account. Lightspeed pay at only £10 or $10. Which is great.

If you want to find some other online survey places in the US go to They list loads of different survey sites. In the UK have a look here There are a lost of more there.

PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK OF THRIFTY THURSDAYS!! Is this a feature we should keep and do each Thursday? Would you benefit from it?

I think this is great. I've been wanting to tell you how much I've enjoyed your site for a while now. Are you located in England? We went there a few months ago and i would love an insider's perspective. We went only to London but we might be back one day. I love all your craft tutorials. I finally had my first craft night last night and it turned out great. Love your site!

I love the idea of thrifty Thursdays. In fact, as a Goodwill junkie myself, I've been wondering if the UK has an equivalent? Maybe some thrift stores or is everything antiquey? (Last time I visited the UK was 18 years ago and I don't remember many thrift stores although I did see a field where a "boot sale" was being set up -- UK equivalent of a yard sale, right?
