Thrifty Tips for January 12th

I do a thrifty tips special weekly at the radio station.  Here is what will be on deck for Thursday:


FlyLady is here to help everyone with CHAOS which she calls Can't Have Anyone Over Syndrome.  Want to get your home in order, gain control over your day and be happy to have someone over without worrying about the mad dash to get things nice and neat or the garbage bags you need to locate to temporarily "store" some clutter?  Check out one of my favorite places to inspire and equip everyone to keep their households under control.

FREE MUSIC DOWNLOADS has a free download available of Rend Collective Experiment's song "Second Chance" from their CD "Homemade Worship by Handmade People.  PS...they will be at Grand Canyon University on January 20th with Francis Chan.  So if you like what you hear, you might want to check them out live.  PPS...I think it is PPS...anyway, don't forget you do need to be a member of in order to download, but membership is free and they do not spam you.

New Release Tuesday is also a great resource for free Christian music downloads as well as fabulous Christian music news.  They also are offering a free download of "Second Chance" by Rend Collective Experiment as well as "Love  Lifted Me" by John Barnett from his new album "Never Look Back."  You can like them on their Facebook page or head to their website.

I would like this focused entirely on my life in general...I was not blessed with organizational skills.  A book like "Absolutely Organize Your Family by Debbie Lillard could just work wonders for someone like me.  If organization is one of your goals, check out this free opportunity:

Ruby (Dakotah Treasures Series) by Lauraine Snelling (BARNES & NOBLE) (AMAZON) For those into Western inspirational stores, Lauraine Snelling is really amazing.
