This post is both a Happy New Year (to you) and a Happy One Year Blogging Anniversary (to me)!

One year ago today I sat down in front of my computer and started this blog. I had no plans for where I wanted it to go…all that I wanted to do was to set some goals for myself, share my progress and help out some folks in my local area who might not have the time or patience to match coupons up with sales. Early on I felt self-conscious and sometimes silly…and more than once I considered deleting the whole thing. It took me over four months to share my real name and to start telling my friends and family about it, and somehow by the end of the year I even ended up on the local news! The comments and emails that I got along the way kept me going…and finding other like minded bloggers to talk to made me see that by new hobby wasn’t such a strange one.

If you had told me that I would end up being a blogger (for even one year!) and contributing to our household income (even a little bit!) again, I wouldn’t have believed you…not for one second. But here I am, and I’m still loving it. And I can’t wait to see what 2009 has in store. Thanks so much for stopping by and reading! I hope you’ll continue to join me!
