3 Things I Am Loving Lately What about you

This last week seems like a blur of book editing, trip preparations and a whole lot of Christmas thrown in. Yep, I am still working on that eBook. I might be the slowest eBook writer ever. The book is around 44,000 words and I want each one to help you and your family financially –that takes time.

First Thing I am LOVING Lately…

My Christmas tree ornaments are done.

Last year around this time I took out a few balls of green yarn, a ball of red and a bunch of buttons. I set out to knit as many Christmas trees as I could with the yarn I had, using my pattern.

But then the Christmas season got busy and I never got around to finishing them. Finally on Sunday I finished all 10 DIY Christmas tree decorations.

Ten minutes later I moved on to making fingerless gloves using my pattern for them.

Second Thing I am LOVING Lately…

Another Christmas tradition enjoyed for this season.

For a few years now the redhead runner and I have ran the local light display during the Christmas season.

I am a big fan of Christmas traditions as you might have guessed by my list of 25 Christmas Traditions For Families On A Tight Budget.

Third Thing I am LOVING Lately

Our RV is finally home!

We took our RV in to the shop for some trim repair way back in September. The RV repair shop finally completed the work on it in late November. My husband didn’t have a day off to pick it up until this past Friday.

Now that it is back in the driveway we are making small changes to it such as adding shelving so that we can maximize its storage.

I also ordered a few things off Hollar.com to help us with our storage needs, including a package of 12 black binder clips for a very special project I am hoping to share with you soon. The item I am look forward to the most in this new Hollar order though is the queen size duvet cover for just $10!

Psst… I would love to get to know you better. Hang out with me in either my Facebook page for people desiring to declutter their homes or on my Facebook page for those who love my thrifty posts.

3 Things I Am Loving Lately What about you

I hope all my American readers had a great Thanksgiving day weekend. I enjoyed Thanksgiving day but spent Friday, Saturday and most of Sunday fighting a fever and sore throat. I won the fight though and am feeling much better.

thanksgiving-sugar-cookies

First Thing I am LOVING Lately…

First sugar cookie of the holiday season

On the day of Thanksgiving our family went over to celebrate with another family in town. This year I brought over a big batch of my sugar cookies .

There we quite a few leftovers since I brought a 4 times batch to the event. Of course once I got them home they didn’t last long. I grabbed one Friday afternoon to eat with a cup of hot lemon and honey. Saturday I tried to do the same thing only to discover the kids had already finished them off.

I am thinking I will make gingerbread cookies next. I like making just one type of cookie at a time during the holidays. If I start at Thanksgiving we usually will have cycled through all our family favorites by Christmas at least once.

Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life

Friday afternoon my throat was killing me so I gave up trying to do much of anything and just rested on the couch and enjoyed all 4 episodes on the new Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life available only on Netflix.

Yep all 4 at once! Once I stated I could not stop –plus I didn’t want anyone on social media to have time to spoil the ending for me.

christmas-tree-knitted

Third Thing I am LOVING Lately…

I finally finished a few of my hand knitted Christmas Tree’s

So last year around this time I started on 10 of my DIY hand knitted Christmas tree ornaments , but then the Christmas season got crazy and I never got around to finishing them.

Sunday I still wasn’t feeling well so I grabbed an audio copy of The Good, The Bad, And The Grace Of God: What Honesty And Pain Taught Us About Faith, Family, And Forgiveness through the Hoopla app and started working on finally finishing them.

By the end of the day I had 7 completely done and hope to finish the last 3  by the end of the week.

An Announcement

I have been thinking for a while now that I need a Facebook group for the readers of my blog who love my thrifty posts. After all I have one for those who enjoy my decluttering posts  so it seems only fair that I have one for my thrifty readers too. So I took a few minutes this week to create The Thrifty People Of Snail Pace Transformations Facebook group. I plan to share my thrifty posts in there as well as great deals I find.

My hope is to get to know my readers on a more personal level which has been one of my major goals for my blog this year.  If you enjoy my thrifty posts I would LOVE to have you join the group.

3 Things I Am Loving Lately What about you

First of all let me wish all my American readers an early Happy Thanksgiving! We will be putting up our tree and decorations tomorrow as well as enjoying a midday feast with friends.

Friday I might do some shopping in my PJs but you won’t catch me out in those Black Friday crowds–this introvert gets a bit overwhelmed by holiday shopping crowds.

20-hollar

First Thing I am LOVING Lately…

My $20 order from Hollar arrived!

Last week I mentioned how Hollar had sent me an email for $5 off an order. I listed  all I got for just $20 shipped. Well here it is! I am very happy with my whole order.

All of these are gifts for my Children. So they are stashed away in the closet for now. My favorite find from this order has to be the nail polish organizer that has a compartment underneath for storing other nail accessories. It was just $5 even thought it was the  highest priced  items seen in this photo.  My daughter loves doing her nails and right now her nail polish collection is all jumbled in a basket.

Go here to check out Hollar for yourself! Free shipping begins at just $10 on your first order.

giving-jar

Second Thing I am LOVING Lately…

Christmas traditions have begun.

Each year we collect our dimes, nickels and pennies in this big glass canning jar. Around Thanksgiving time we either cash it in and use it to support a charity or sometimes we just give the contents to a change drive.

This is one of the traditions I mentioned on the list of 25 Christmas Traditions For Families On A Tight Budget  I shared earlier this week.

first-red-cup-of-the-season

Third Thing I am LOVING lately…

First official red cup of the season.

Although I did take part in the buy one get one holiday drink special at Starbucks earlier this month I got an iced drink so it really wasn’t until earlier this week that I had my first festive red cup Starbucks drink.

This one was actually on Starbucks thanks to their Starbucks rewards program!

Read 8 places where you can earn Starbucks gift cards plus one way to make them stretch further.
