Last week I found out my dear Frugalettes voted me as one of the Top 25 Frugal Blogs of 2012 over at the awesome SkinnyScoop.com! When you start blogging, you never know if anyone, let alone thousands…will ever find and read what you have to say. So, to be voted a favorite is a big-blushing-happy-dance-moment.
You don’t just like me…you get me. Budget, frugality, saving…whatever you call it; is not a bad word! It’s not about being cheap, it’s about being money smart. We don’t just give our money away, we want companies to work hard to get it from us.
Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough. – Oprah Winfrey
Going into debt was the best thing that happened to our family. We lost it all and found ourselves. Holding hands for long walks, laughing until our tummies hurt, eating dinner at home; all because we focused on what we have…each other.
One of the hardest things in life is self-discipline. Saying yes to things we should be saying no to. But like any discipline, if we stick to it there is great reward…
Soon after finding out about winning Top 25, I was invited to join the SkinnyScoop team! SkinnyScoop was made for all us list-makers out there. If you’re a reader of my blog, you know I love a good list. I often write about my “Top 5 Buys” or “Top 10 Tips” and now with SkinnyScoop I can embed all my lists into my posts and make it a lot more fun to read.
Want a place to keep Top favs? Check them out and I’d love to hear what you think!
So, what is a Tastemaker? Tastemakers are leaders in the SkinnyScoop community who contribute to the site in their area of expertise. Can you guess what my expertise is?
I’m honored and thrilled to be a part of the team, alongside women I’ve admired for a long time!
If you ever want to check out my lists, I added an icon in my sidebar ——-> Yep, right there, where it says ‘See My Lists. It let’s you scroll through my lists without ever leaving my site. If you find something you like, just click through to see the whole list!
Thank you for all your support of TheFrugalette. If there was no one to read, there would be no reason to write.
