Thanks for Reading the Thrifty Minnesota Newsletter!

Sorry for no newsletter last week! Things got kind of cut short with Thanksgiving. I hope your holiday was a good one!

Speaking of the holiday season, we've done a lot of updates to our annual Holiday Lights in Minnesota list! If you know of any that aren't yet on the list, PLEASE drop me an email at chrysa@thriftyminnesota.com .

The list also features ticket discounts for some the paid shows like GLOW and Christmas in Color.

If you think you or someone you know might be interested in joining our team here at Thrifty Minnesota, check out our "We're Hiring" post for more details.

Weekly reminder: This newsletter is a round-up of everything posted on the website during the week. If you want to see things in real time (and not miss anything time-sensitive), check in on ThriftyMinnesota.com or visit the Facebook Page or Facebook Group (Use the "follow" and "notify" buttons to keep seeing it in your feed)
