  • Happy Mother’s Day!

    I’m going to take the rest of the weekend off to fully enjoy my Mother’s Day, but I’ll leave you with a couple of questions since I’ve been wondering:

    Do you like the weekly drugstore deals?

    What about the starter drugstore deals?

    As I seek to simplify my (blogging) life, I am trying to figure out which posts give you, as a reader, the most value – so thank you for your input!

      Hi – I love your blog, and I'll tell you what I like most are the personal thoughts on family, life and news, plus the recipes – less the deals, I feel like I can get that elsewhere. As an intelligent hard-working mom who is juggling family and job and trying to make the best choices, I love hearing your unique thoughts on motherhood, marriage, organizing your day and finances.

    2. I like the weekly drugstore deals you post. I don't shop the deals every week but it's nice to see when the deals I want are available.

      LOVE the starter deals. Because of the drugstore game, your blog is now often my only blog stop on the web. Thanks!

      You do a good job with both the drugstore deals and the starter deals, but if you're looking for a way to cut back those are both something we can easily get in other places. I really enjoy your morning coffee posts, so I hope you will continue those, however. Those are unique to you (I think) and I appreciate your efforts!

    8. I am a big fan of both the weekly deals and the starter deals. I have no children, so those posts are some of the main reasons I read your blog.

    9. I hope you continue to post the weekly deals, they are easy to follow and you know the best deals. I also like to hear all the different ways you have found to save money. Your post is one of the few I still follow, keep up the great work!

    10. I have really enjoyed your drugstore posts. Even though I look at a couple of other blogs for there drugstore posts, yours have become my favorites. Every week I find a deal or a coupon link on yours that nobody else has found. I have also found the start drugstore deals to be very helpful. I would love to see you keep them up!
