I have decided that I am no longer going to post weekly match-ups for MARTIN'S. It was a decision that I have prayed about and weighed the pros and cons for the last several months.
Steve and I have recently been evaluating how we are spending our "free time". We have been looking at things that we are involved with and things that we do on a regular basis and asked ourselves if it something that is helping to build the body of Christ.
I realized that sharing coupon match-ups, although it was hopefully helpful to others, was not something that was the best way to spend 3-4 hours a day. (Yes - that is on average how long it took me to sit down to look at the sales flyer, look in a coupon database for potential matches, verify the available coupons, and type everything out).
We have also decided that we need to step away from some of our responsibilities at our church and instead, work on investing and building relationships with people who we come in contact with on a regular basis. This includes neighbors, co-workers, people who we routinely see at a restaurant that we frequent, and even the ladies who I see for my nails and hair. We truly want to be salt and light in the world.
My plan is to keep my blog still up and running and instead of it be about coupon match-ups, be what I originally wanted it to be - a blog about the crazy life of a mom with young children.
If you are looking for a replacement for my MARTIN'S deals there are two blogs that I would encourage you to check out - Young and Frugal in Virginia or For The Mommas.
Thanks for checking out my weekly top deals posts and sharing the deals that you found. I have enjoyed interacting with fellow deal seekers. I hope you will continue to visit my site and get to know me and my family better.
