Yesterday I got my 9 month update from my hosting service, which was kind of ironic because lately I have been considering the state of Simply Family Savings. I have been at Simply Family Savings.com for 9 months, and before that simplyfamilysavings.wordpress.com one year, that one year and 9 months of coupon/deal blogging (if you exclude summer months) has been fun, and challenging . I have learned a lot about myself, I have also got to know many readers and bloggers, and it has been wonderful to be part of this community of people who want to save when they can, to help provide the best for their families, I love that!
I have got to be honest, couponing is now just part of my daily routine something I do often, like
shaving my legs brushing my teeth. I don’t feel the need to share long detailed information about my shopping trips. Thinking about putting together and maintaining a full set of match ups mentally drains me. Couponing is undeniably woven right into the fabric of my being, but it there is no hiding the fact it can not be counted among the things in my life I am passionate about. I am moving away from a strictly coupon/deal blog, If you are looking for a coupon/deal blog that posts 15 times a day with the latest deals and freebies Simply Family Savings will not be for you. There are many local bloggers who do a phenomenal job, and I am more than happy to refer you to them for full sets of store match ups. I have realized I could burn out completely on blogging by muddling through every week, or I could make my main focus at Simply Family Savings what I love and excites me, and hopefully breathe a breath of fresh air into Simply Family Savings.
Change is hard. I know many of you followed me, from a forum to my first blog, and now here. And I really do not want to lose you, you are like extended family. Couponing is still a part of who I am, but it is only one part. I still want to help you get the best for your family within your means. You can now expect menu ideas based on store sales, my favorite friend and family tested recipes, that are frugal, use everyday ingredients and do not require a master’s degree in culinary arts. I am looking forward to giving my blog a more personal feel, I will begin posting more real life stories and happenings. Any coupons and deals will only be posted on Thursday possibly also Friday, no worries the ad scan made the cut, I still love and look forward to sharing that with you! Change is hard, but it is also good. I hope you will stay with me for this new chapter, I think it will be fun!
