Bargain is the New Black: Where I have been!

Happy Happy New Year to you all! I am looking forward to lots of new challenges and changes in 2012! You might have been wondering where I have been and why I haven't been blogging.

To be honest I have been burnt out on the coupon thing. I had been couponing religiously since 2006 and after 5 years of going full force chasing deals, I just kind of got tired. You may or may not have known that I was also a "blinkie girl" part time and I also stopped doing that as well. I just got so overwhelmed with all the "stuff" in my home, coupons piled on my desk and having to visit multiple stores with kids in tow.

Another reason which you may be experiencing too - deals are harder to find with the changes to coupon policies, coupon expiration dates and store restrictions. That being said I haven't given up on coupons all together, just kind of dropped it on the priority list of things in my life.

I've also started a new business venture by becoming a Thirty-One Consultant. I'm really excited about this new opportunity and I hope that I can grow this part-time business into a profitable income source.

I will be using this blog space to share deals that are too good to pass up when they come around that I actually plan on doing, sharing giveaways and reviews that are still coming my way as well as hopefully use this as a space feature a new post - Monday Menu that will be menu planning for the week (which is one of my 2012 resolutions and will help keep me accountable to menu plan).

I won't be blogging everyday - maybe a just a few days a week. I hope that you will continue to follow my blog so at the very least you'll have a chance to win some great giveaways!

Best wishes to you in 2012!
