I originally intended for GoodStewardess.com to be a blog about frugal living and faithful stewardship, with some information about coupon shopping thrown in.
It has become a site about coupon shopping, and not much else, which makes me a little sad. I’m spending so much time posting grocery deals and new coupons, it doesn’t leave much time to write about other topics.
I really feel like I need to make some changes, so here’s where I plan to start:
Continue with coupon match-ups for Chief and Rays. Of course!
Eliminate coupon match-ups for other stores. I may post a summary of the “best deals around town” or something like that. Or maybe I’ll do more “show and tell” of my own shopping trips. I don’t have all that figured out yet.
Link to sites who specialize in other stores. I’ve found several bloggers who are experts in a single store, which makes them more likely to find plenty of unadvertised deals in addition to items from their store’s weekly ad.
Provide a summary list of new coupons, rather than individual posts for every new coupon released in a day. You shouldn’t be checking for new coupons more than once a day, anyway! (If a coupon is likely to be time-sensitive, I’ll post those as soon as I find them.)
I hope this will free up time so that I can provide information and tools to my readers that are different from what you find at other sites, rather than just posting a lot of duplicate information.
You (my readers) probably won’t notice a big difference right away, except that the number of posts in a day will be less than it has been. Which is not a bad thing, right?
The “new information and tools” that I talked about will probably not gain a whole lot of momentum until summer is over and our kids are back in school. But I’ll work on them as I’m able!
I welcome your comments and suggestions! And if you have other favorite blogs related to coupons, frugal living, homemaking, or similar topics, feel free to link to them below so I can check them out. Thanks!
