Welcome to the NEW All Things Thrifty!

Apr 14th, 2013

WELCOME!! Did you do a double take and wonder if you were in the right place this morning!?!? Well, you are in the right place! I would like to personally welcome you to the new All Things Thrifty!

I announced a sneak peek of All Things Thrifty’s new look on my Instagram and Facebook the other day, but if you missed the announcement, no worries. Heck, I can’t keep up with everyone’s Facebook account that I want to either. Don’t worry, we are still friends.

I have wanted/needed a complete overhaul on All Things Thrifty for a looooong time. The old site was hard to navigate. Heck, I even found myself GOOGLING my own posts to find them at times. Ummmmm, that is pretty embarrassing to admit. But, now, I am pleased to say that ALL of All Things Thrifty posts are now organized into four main categories: All Things DIY, All Things Delicious, All Things Girlie, and All Things Us.

I hope it will be easier for you to find things around here! And, I think the site design {done by Amy at Lexilynn Studio} is REALLY fun because it changes colors based on the category that you are in!! Go ahead, click on the images below and watch the magic happen!

All Things DIY All Things Delicious All Things Girlie All Things Us
As you will find out, some of our categories contain more posts than others. We will be amping up a few categories ASAP, and I’m sure we will make a few tweaks over the next few days as we get all of our ducks in a row, so try and be patient with us as we do so.

It was fun for me to see how All Things Thrifty has evolved from the beginning {almost 4 years ago} so, I thought it might be fun to take you back to the beginning and show you all of the makeovers we’ve had in the last 4 years. All Things Thrifty had some pretty embarrassing haircuts along the way!

We started out in 2009…


Then we got a little fancier as we went into 2010….Header 1

Then 2011 came around, and we went turbo and switched the color scheme!Header 2

And then we made a HUGE change to this header in mid 2011ish…. All Things Thrifty Home Decor and Accessories Header new

and in early 2013, I got bored and changed the look on a whim to….

header new copy1

NOW…..All Things Thrifty finally has the look and feel that I’ve wanted for so long. All Things Thrifty is now organized, simple, and unique.  New Header 1

I’m sure we will have a few bumps along the way, so please let me know if you find something that isn’t working correctly and we will get it fixed ASAP.  Thank you for reading. I sincerely love what I do, and I hope I can help brighten your day in some way here at All Things Thrifty. I know that you all brighten my days with your considerate comments, emails, and notes on our Facebook page, Twitter, andInstagramaccounts.

I hope you have a great day and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

xoxo, Brooke

  11. the new look is perfect Brooke! Love that the whole thing changes color when you switch category! Nice touch!

  12. I love the look of the new site! You and Amy have done an excellent job organizing the site! Are your category icons a WP plugin? If so, which one did you use? I am doing a revamp on my site too and am looking for one.
