In transition., as I mentioned a couple weeks ago, is transitioning into a new vision of mine. To be more explicit with you, my husband and I are working on turning this blog into a disaster relief site. Over the past two years of blogging, I have learned several important things through
  1. Maintaining a daily deals/couponing site takes a lot of time: even with a focus on giving, keeping up-to-date deals and freebies posted requires at least an hour or two of blogging each day. I maintained this speed for quite some time, but I feel like (with a baby on the way), it is time for me to find a new niche. 
  2. There are many, many couponing blogs out there: as you probably know, there are a plethora of couponing and saving money blogs circulating right now. I have often felt discouraged by the plague of comparison to "bigger" blogs, as well as a strain on my creativity by reposting what others have already found.
  3. I want to focus on giving through couponing: I'm passionate about giving and I have desired and strived for some time to stay more focused on that aspect.
  4. There isn't really another blog right now that is specifically geared towards Disaster Relief Boxes: I have found that when natural disasters like Joplin and Tuscaloosa happen, there are a lot of people who want to give essential items (and couponers especially through their stock piles), but there isn't a main resource to connect these people with churches and organizations accepting donations. gets the most hits during these times and I have noticed a need for such a ministry/site.
  5. I enjoy sharing my frugal life with you! I will still have my frugal lifestyle, tips, favorite deals, and freebies featured on my personal blog (as well as some of my other favorite topics), Le Melange Parfait, and you are more than welcome to follow me over there, too!
Thank you so much for all your support with this blog and your help in living the generous lifestyle! I would love your continued prayers and support as this site grows and blossoms into a resource for people during times of natural disaster.
