Tuesday's Tip:
Storing & organizing candlesticks

Storing candlesticks can be tricky... they roll around loose in the drawer, crack and break easily, melt all over, and can be very difficult to organize. Martha Stewart has a quick and easy solution to this... click here to read about her brilliant (and cheap!) solution!

A very sad, personal note...

It is with great sadness that I write this post...

With respect to our privacy, I don't want to get into all the details... but it greatly saddens me to announce that ThriftyGuy will no longer be a part of ThriftyGrl.

You all know that I have been very sick this past year, and ThriftyGuy has done an amazing job running the site in my absence.  He is always on time with the Sunday deals, never skips a beat when it comes to the Weekend Guide, and brought to ThriftyGrl something I never could - a male perspective.  So ThriftyGuy, thank you, with all my heart.  Your help has meant the world to me and was appreciated more than you'll ever know.  Your presence will be dearly missed!

To all my readers, please know that I have taken over complete control and will be the one and only writer once again here at ThriftyGrl.  I appreciate your patience as I get back in the swing of things, especially during such a difficult time in my life.  Things may be a bit slow in the beginning - but watch out!  We will soon be up and running at full speed (and then some)!

I am very excited...  There are tons of fun and exciting things to come.... I can't wait to share them with you all!  I have quite a few ideas/projects in the works, as well as all of the features and content that you have come to know and love about ThriftyGrl!

Again, thank you for your support, patience, and understanding.  Please feel free to leave a comment showing your support for ThriftyGuy - I know it would mean a lot to him!

Sincerely,

Coupon Alert:

Tuesday's Tip:
To freeze or not to freeze....


Ever wonder what you really can and can't freeze?  Or if that fuzzy chicken is ok to eat after a good nuke in the microwave?

Trust me, I'm the same way.  A total food phobic (in the sense that I'm always scared of getting sick from bad food...)  And freezing is one of those blurred lines.  My parents freeze stuff forever and ever and we lived through it just fine.  Others, however, have not been so lucky.

Good thing Yahoo put out this great reference on the 6 myths about freezing food.  At first I didn't think much about it, but I must say - it's worth a second look!  Check it out here.... and just try not to jot down notes!  : )
