I Think I Have to Say Good-Bye :(

Yes, you read that right. I think I will have to say good-bye to blogging.

I have sooooo much more respect for working Moms. I don't know how they do it all. With me now working full-time, I barely have time to make dinner anymore, let alone keep up with a blog. This past week was a killer when I had to finish sewing 3 Halloween costumes too.

With my children in dance 5 days out of the week, and me working all day, picking them up & dropping them off at dance, going home, making dinner and trying to keep it clean and laundry done. I don't have time to even check my e-mails anymore.

I have truly enjoyed this experience, and will fondly look back at all the great stuff I learned. I remember when another one of my favorite blogs stopped, everybody asked her if she was going to keep using coupons. Well my answer to that is...I can't afford not to anymore. I have been spoiled with getting free stuff and next to free stuff. I don't think I could ever go back to not using coupons.

I will keep this blog up, but will not be updating it anymore. Feel free to still use the blog roll on the side. Or you could all their blogs to your favorites and follow along with their adventures too. I wish you all much success in your frugal adventures. You will still probably see me name pop up on some comments here and there. That way you will know I am still kicking.

Thank you all for the fun and support. I will miss this!

So sorry to see you go, but I understand. I've found the blogging to be very time consuming lately as well, especially when life picks up.

Best of luck in future couponing - Please keep stopping by to share any good deals

Oh, Michelle. I know how you feel - I have found it hard with "only" working two days a week! Thanks so much for introducing me to the world of blogging and make sure to come over and share the good deals you find - you have a gift!

See you at Girl Scouts! Anytime I can help by picking up or dropping off Ali for Girl Scouts, just let me know!

I'm sorry you will not be here daily. I don't have a blog.. I guess that makes me a "lurker" or something... (awful title!!)
Thank you for the helpful tips and for taking the time to share what has worked for you to help others. I have been encouraged by reading you.
I'm sure as you work through this new adjustment and season of your life.. you will have much to share with us later that will again be helpful.
Thank you again for all the time it took to clarify your thoughts, and do all that typing!!!
And; your family is so good lookin'!

Don't quit!!

Just change your goals... or change how you want your blog to be. But don't quit!

2 Weeks ago I started a new job... (read my blog... I've slowed down a lot!!) I just have to change my expectations.

Blogging should be fun/relaxing.

Just don't quit! :)
