Thank You

I've been thinking a lot lately about the future of my blog. I love couponing and finding great deals, but my every day life is becoming more and more demanding and I just couldn't see where Cheapie Cheapie fit in. I know I started Cheapie Cheapie as a blog/journal about my adventures with frugality, but somewhere along the way I think I lost that original idea.

I was seriously thinking about hanging up the keyboard for awhile because I just felt like I couldn't keep up with everything. I read lots of other blogs about couponing and deals and their posts are so numerous and overwhelming -- I began to feel like my blog was so little and overlooked and was basically for nothing. (I know, this sounds like a pity party, right? It's not, I swear.)

At any rate, I received a few of the nicest e-mails in the past couple of weeks thanking me for Cheapie Cheapie. I had no idea that this 'lil ole blog was affecting so many people in such a positive way. I've had the biggest smile on my face from those e-mails. You have no idea how happy they made me. :)

I want every single person reading this to know YOU are the reason I write this blog. I want to help you as much as I can with living inexpensively. Those e-mails have made me realize that this blog isn't for nothing. Even if I'm helping one person, I'm helping one person. And that's huge!!

As for the future of Cheapie Cheapie, I will continue to post my insane coupon wheelin' and dealin'. I'm no expert at this, to be sure, but I think I can muddle my way through this enough so we can all benefit from the power of coupons.

I'm going to try and start a weekly CVS Challenge for myself, and to teach all of you how to manage CVS from the very first baby step of walking through their doors to walking away with tons of free product.

If you have any ideas or topics you would like me to cover, please let me know!

Thank you all for reading my blog. You guys are the best!

I was scared there for a minute--I thought you were going to end Cheapie Cheapie :0.. But thanks for keeping it going! I have recommended this blog to some people--and one of them told me "I'm all about Cheapie Cheapie". So you are helping people save money. Thanks!

You are a natural at this. After watching you at work in the grocery store it would be a loss without your website.
