The Time Has Come....

Well, my friends I am posting to let you all know that the time has come for me to stop posting here on The Thrifty Mommy. My sister and I started this blog almost 3 years ago, yes she begged me to start the blog, then decided it was not her thing. I stuck with it though, at the time Little Man was just a toddler, and Little Miss was just a few months old. It was an outlet for me, to share something I absolutely love to do..... finding sales, deals, and couponing, with all of you to help you too save a bit of cash along the way!! What can I say, saving money and finding a deal gives me a rush of happiness!!!

Over the years the kiddies have gotten a bit older, started to participate in various activities, began napping less ans less, or in little Man's case not napping at all, (Which I must admit I love the one on one time together with him)! Plus, I have been focusing on exercising daily, and the time for blogging has gotten to be less and less.

I have had a great time sharing deals with all of you, it has been so much fun!! I know that this in the end for now....but who knows what the future holds. Perhaps next fall when the kiddies are in school I may be back? We shall see!!

Thanks so much to all the loyal readers for the support, nice comments, and emails along the way!! They meant so very much to me!! Here's hoping you all have a wonderful summer!!
