Four years ago, late into the night, I was putting the finishing touches on Raising A Family On A Budget. I didn’t know who would ever even see this blog, but wanted an outlet for sharing the money saving tips I found, online. My first post went live just before 2a on June 10, and simply stated that this page was a work in progress. A truer statement has never been made. Raising A Family On A Budget has been a 4 year work in progress.
I started out “raising the bar, without raising your budget” but the reality was I was leaving a lot of myself out of the equation. When our family found out we were expecting our third child, our priorities changed, and I figured that was a good time to change the direction of this site – Home Economics for Real Life seems a lot more fitting these days.
Amongst the deals and coupons that have been a cornerstone of Raising A Family On A Budget, I am now (slowly) sharing more review & giveaways, personal anecdotes, gardening projects, recipes, and DIY projects. In the upcoming year, I will also be sharing our family’s adventure as we begin home schooling/cyber schooling our children.
For those of you who have been with me since the beginning – Thank you for sticking by Raising A Family On A Budget as it grows and continues to evolve. For those who are new readers – Welcome! I hope you find this site helpful, informative, and a great resource for helping your family save money.
Let’s stay connected! I love connecting with my readers and look forward to taking this journey with you. You can find Raising A Family On A Budget on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.. You can find my more personal side on Instagram, Pinterest, and through my personal Google+ account.
Thanks to all of you for the last four years!
