Why Do I Blog Each Day?

I know many people are curious how and why us bloggers work so hard to put together the posts, deals and giveaways for people we don’t even know.  Well the answer for me is simple, I have been at a place in my life where our family has had to cut costs in order to just make it to the end of the month.  Money was so tight no matter what we did.  Each month brought on more frustration and stress because it seemed we never had enough money and we always fell short.  The reality was that the month always seemed to last longer then the money.  After cutting everything I possibly could, the only thing left to cut was our grocery bill – and I had no idea that you could cut that.  I mean after all 5 people, 2 cats and a dog all had to eat and clean.  I decided to take a stab at matching deals with coupons and eventually saw that I could spend so much less that I was normally spending yet have so much more if I just did it right.  Once I saw that my grocery bill consistently went from $1000 a month to $250-300 a month (for 5 people) and we could save money for the first time ever, I decided it was something I just had to share with friends and family and one thing led to another and I started blogging.  I wanted to share it with as many people as I could in the hopes of touching someones life for the better because it is possible to save money!

While blogging lets me do what I like to do and finding the deals for myself, it also allows me the opportunity to make a little bit of money.  How do I make money you wonder?  The money comes from the different advertisers on my site, it never comes from you my readers.  You help support my site by printing a coupon you need, taking advantage of an offer you like or sometimes clicking a link in my posts.  These may not seem like big things to you, but by you doing these simple things you are supporting my efforts and I thank you.  I also love to see the comments both here and on facebook it helps me connect to each one of you!

I appreciate all my readers and fans and will continue to bring the best deals and offers I can to you in the hope that you can also find a way to reduce the amount of money you spend on groceries and starting saving this coming year.  Here is looking forward to 2012 and all that it has to bring for you and your families.  If I can every help you in any way, please do not hesitate to contact me, I’m only an email away!
