Welcome to the first ever edition of the Club Thrifty VIP Club! Over the past few months we’ve been learning a lot about blogging and making some great friends. We’ve had several people who have been super supportive of us. As a way of saying thank you, we’ve decided to start a (probably) weekly post to give some love back to our special VIP supporters. Of course, with a wife and two kids I don’t really have time to go back through 3 months worth of mentions, so we’ve decided that we would stick to those that mentioned us this week. Hopefully, we didn’t leave anybody off.
