Hello! I have some great news! Many, many, many of my long time readers from this old blog have been asking me to do a recipe book or a book on tips and tricks of thrifty living and that is what I’ve been working on, but with a twist. I went through eleven years of recipes and articles compiling the best of the best into this project. I even added some recipes that were not on the blog. Not only is it a recipe book (with wipe off pages!), but it is also has a section called “Pearls Of Wisdom” with tips and tricks to save money at the grocery store, meal planning, school lunches, stockpiling, pretty much all things food related.
Additionally, it is a journal with areas to expand and add your own recipes, food related memories, meal ideas, whatever you want. Places to tuck things like coupons and gift cards, recipes you might clip from a newspaper or magazine. Plus! A surprise ephemera pack is enclosed with each one to get you started so you can make this journal your very own.
I put my heart and soul into this journal along with a lot of thought. Each journal is unique, no two are identical as far as the styling, but the information contained inside is consistent with each one. Journals need to be tailored to the owner so that is what you will have, the opportunity to tailor this journal to meet your specific needs and requirements.
We have a three volume set of journals in mind, based on how well the first one does. Volume one is based on all things food management related. Volume two will be based on home management and volume three will be all things Christmas and other celebrations!
Right now we are doing a “soft launch”. I am listing Thrifty Mom In Boise A Journal For Everyday Living Volume 1 available for sale on eBay with a lower introductory rate of $49.95 throughout the month of September for those of you interested in purchasing a copy. The reason I chose eBay is so I can ship them internationally as I have a lot of readers outside the U.S. and I wanted them to have an opportunity as well.
I am ever so grateful for the chance to do this and it wouldn’t have been possible without the great readers I have. Thank you for following along with me all these years and for the massive amounts of encouragement to do this. I’m praying this goes well so I can offer the additional two volumes in the near future. I hope you like it. Happy Cooking! Happy Eating! Happy Journaling!!
