VIP Club: Best Week Ever Edition



Good morning, Club Thrifty enthusiasts!  Not only is it Friday, but I have some awesome news to share with each and everyone one of you.  Are you sitting down?  Wait for it……

On Wednesday, we found out that we won the ebay Frugal Blog Award in the family category!  I’m sure you’re all wondering what exactly this means.  And the truth is, so am I.  From what I can tell, I’ve just won a whole lot of bragging rights, fame, and glory for all time.  I’m also the proud owner of this swank little badge to display on my blog until forevah.  Isn’t she beautiful???

VIP Club RoundupYo, VIP! Let’s kick it!


What up party peeps? The VIP Club Roundup is back! We are thrilled to be back in full force after an awesome vacation to the Dominican Republic…or as some of our friends from The Great White North like to call it Punta Canada. We had a super busy week, trying to play catch up and all. However, I did manage to get our taxes done. Yay for that being over with, and we even got a little refund! Between all of that, we even managed to get a few blog posts in this week. Here they are, just in case you missed them:

The VIP Club Roundup – 15th Edition

The VIP Club


Hello folks! Welcome back to Club Thrifty’s VIP Club Roundup! We hope you had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


It has been a pretty rough week around these parts. We have been incredibly busy at work. Add that to the fact that we have a 3-year-old who has been keeping us up almost every night for about 2 months, and you’ve got some very tired peeps here at Club Thrifty. (BTW – be looking for a beautifully written, well crafted story about this “waking up” coming soon!) We are very sorry that we haven’t been doing as much commenting and tweeting lately. It is our plan to get back to normal next week.


Due to the holidays, among the other life events, we have been a little light on content around here lately. We do hope you had a chance to read the following:




Search Terms

The VIP Club Roundup – 14th Edition


VIP Club Roundup


*Tap tap tap* Is this thing still on? Are we still here? If we are, it appears that we have avoided the apocalyptic predictions of the Mayans. Of course, the day is not over so it could all go to hell at any second. But, for now I guess we are safe. So, “Happy Not the End of the World Day!” You know that means? It is also “Happy First Day of Winter Day!” To be honest, I’m not completely sure that we lucked out on that one.


Soooo….Welcome to Club Thrifty’s VIP Club Roundup!!! Before we start, take a minute to check out our iPad3 giveaway, subscribe to our blog, follow us on Twitter, and like us on Facebook. All the cool kids are doing it!

After you’ve done that, sit back and get ready to be wowed! You know we like to bring the awesome sauce up in this joint, so prepare to have your socks rocked off!


Sandy HookAll kidding aside, we are participating in the national moment of silence today for the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy which took place one week ago. Being parents of two young children, we have been both deeply saddened and disturbed by this senseless act of violence against these innocent children and the adult heroes who attempted to protect them. It is with heavy hearts that we observe this moment of silence between 9:30 and 9:35 A.M. E.S.T. Please join us as our website will go “dark” for these 5 minutes in honor of those who lost their lives. For more information, you can go to



Now, on with the show…
