"The 'Item of the Month' for March is crafts. My sister gave me some leftover quilt scraps and from them I made 103 scrunchies and 19 necklaces!" - Judy P.

I just ordered some great gifts from Oriental Trading for my shoeboxes. And I found super-soft socks (pack of 4) for only $1 at the mall! How are you being thrifty this year? Find any good deals yet? 6 weeks to go!!!
