Pushing myself past my fears and trying new things

tammilee EMP Scream Booth lbldIt is hard to believe that it is 2013! I can’t believe how fast this past year went and that I have been blogging for over three years. The past three years have been filled with so many ups and downs it is amazing. As I look forward to 2013 I am setting new goals and planning to push myself and try new things. The past three years the blog has been mainly focused on coupons and deals. I have not put a lot of me or how we live frugally in the blog. I am not sure why this has not been in the blog except that I was scared. Scared to show our lives and put myself out there to everyone, scared to show that we are not always perfect and we make mistakes, scared that readers will not like my writing or my voice. Well I am going to push myself and tackle these fears this year. I am putting it in writing and telling all of you! This year you will see more of me in my blog posts, more about our travels, how we live frugally day to day, more recipes, and more life not just deals. Don’t worry there will still be deals and coupons but I want to show a real life perspective on living frugally. I want to share how we stretch our dollar as far as we possibly can, what we are doing to pay off our bills, how we are traveling on a small budget and so much more. I really hope you will embrace this change and my voice. I want to hear from you! What do you want to learn about living frugally? What goals do you have for the new year? This blog is meant to be a place we can all learn from each other and grow and save! I look forward to talking with all of you this year and sharing me!
