Help has Arrived!

by Marcy on September 15, 2010 · 3 comments

For those of you who are regular readers (or super observant), you may have noticed a new name under some of my post titles over the last couple of weeks. After the birth of my second daughter in early May, I quickly realized that keeping up with my blog was going to be a challenge. I like to post several times per day, and I like to be consistent when it comes to posting store/coupon match ups. I operated on a “bare minimum” schedule in the weeks following the birth of my daughter, and have slowly been ramping things up as our schedule is becoming a little more defined and manageable. But things were still slipping through the cracks and I wanted to do better.

I have had it in the back of my mind for quite some time that I would love to bring someone on board to help me out. However, deal blogging takes a lot of hard work (especially those store match ups!), and I wasn’t sure how to find a good fit. (I *might* have some control freak tendencies…) God must have been looking out for me because about a month ago I learned that Jennifer, a stay at home mom of 4, was going to have all of her kids in school this year – and she was looking for work. Long story short, we met, we devised a schedule and Jennifer has now been helping out for about 3 weeks.

I hope that even if you did not notice her name under some of the post titles, that you have noticed more frequency in posts here at Stretching a Buck. One of the major things my blog has been lacking in recent months is link ups and credits to other bloggers – due to the fact that I simply don’t have the time that I once did to peruse the internet for deals. I am grateful that Jennifer will now be helping me compileDeal Round Ups, pointing you to some of the best deals we see around the blogosphere each week. Jennifer will also be bringing you your Giant Eagle deals – something that I had been struggling to complete consistently. Look for expanded Rebate info, more focus on Organic/Natural Food Deals, Daily Groupon posts and more!

I know that I am absolutely thrilled to have Jennifer on board, and I hope that you appreciate her too!

It has been a LONG time since I have asked for site feedback, so if you have any suggestions for improvement or an additional info/deals that you would like to see added to Stretching a Buck, please feel free to drop them in the form below.

Thanks so much for reading! This site would not be what it is today without your support, comments, emails and suggestions. :-)

I filled out all of the stuff above but can’t submit it b/c of all of the stuff on the side covering up the tab to scroll down to where (I presume) the enter/submit button would be located…

This is wonderful, and so great that you have help! Thank you both for what you do! Such a blessing to me and our family. I really love the Kroger deals;)
