Quick Family Update and Changes Happening on the Blog!

Well, believe it or not, it’s May 1st!  I wanted to give a quick family update as well as let you know about a few changes that will be occurring on the blog!

As most of you know, we welcomed our third little girl into the family on April 11th!  Needless to say, these past (almost) 3 weeks have been very busy and just a little tiring for me!  J But,  I have been so overwhelmed by the magnitude of God’s blessings!  We love all three of our girls, of course, and I love being able to stay at home with them!  God has blessed our family immensely!

We also have been homeschooling our oldest daughter, who is 4 years old.  We actually finished up with our pre-k curriculum just a few days before the new baby made her appearance!  I was going full force for the past few months to make sure we had our 180 days completed before the little one arrived!  This has made for a relaxed and easier schedule at home since her birth!  We are planning to continue homeschooling for Kindergarten—and I’ve actually already ordered the new curriculum which I am so excited about!  More to come on that later! 

Now, as the new month begins, I would like to set some new goals—a “new month resolution”—if you will!  The last several weeks of my pregnancy I was exhausted and unfocused and I let the blog go a little.  I was posting very minimally, basically just the store matchups each week.  I want this to change.  The blog is not only a way to supplement a little income from home, but it’s also a way to save money for my family!  The coupons and deals I post, I like to take advantage of as well.  So, from now on, I’m going to try to start being a little more focused and organized; trying to post at least a few times a day.  But, even more importantly (to me, anyway), I’m going to try and begin organizing my coupons and shopping trips again!  I definitely notice a huge change in our budget when I take my weeks “off” from couponing.  It has affected us, and now that we’re a family of 5, I need to be helping out our family by saving as much as I can.

Here are a few goals I have set:

*Continue with weekly store matchups
*Post any new or hot coupons that pop up daily
*Post my weekly shopping trips when possible
*Try to implements some new, different topics as well (such as homeschooling, DIY, recipes or more)
*Post a daily roundup post (with all the day’s deals included) nightly.
*Update the Walmart $1 and Under list more frequently.
*I will also continue to take Sundays off from the blog as a day of worship and family time.

Now, this is where I need your input.  Is there anything specific you would like to see on the blog?  Anything you think needs change?  Improvement?  Anything I do post that is not helpful?  What would you be interested in reading more about?  Coupons?  Homeschooling? DIY?  Recipes?  Etc?  Give me some ideas if you will!  I’m ready to step it up and make some improvements here!
