The money thing

Something that I almost never talk about on this blog is my (obsession) with saving money. Yes, sometimes I feel like in my real life I'm sort of "that person" who's always talking about the last deal I got, but I won't apologize. With one income, it's really helpful to save money wherever we can.

I've always used coupons, but about two years ago I began to really concentrate on trying to become a coupon queen who saves ridiculous amounts of money when I shop. I've had varying amounts of success over the two years, depending on how busy life has been, but now that E is getting a little older, I've been getting the "bug" again. I'm ready to start making some changes in the way we shop and eat to make an even bigger impact on our budget that I've made thus far.

I have a deal/money-saving blog. I have intentionally kept that blog separate from this one for obvious anonymity reasons. I haven't updated that blog for quite a while because it was SO time-consuming, and SO unrewarding. (People rarely comment on a blog like that unless you have an unbelievable number of followers.) I'm thinking that I want to start it up again and am wondering what you ladies think. With regard to blogs, does it turn you off when a blog isn't updated every day? Would you still be interested in reading a savings blog that was updated often, but NOT every day? I feel like I have a lot of good ideas and I'd love to share them, but I just don't have time to update all the time and keep up with every circular.

I have more stuff to update on, but I don't want to make this too long so I'm going to leave it at that.

I'd read it. Would the advice/coupons be a regional thing or just generalized?

I'd read it, too. I've been trying to add some money saving blogs to my reader lately. I think it would be cool to read one by somebidy that I "know."

I am super frugal too. I would read a blog that was updated at least once a week I think.
