Weekend links: Tell me what you want to read here, edition

I didn’t get around to working on my blog last weekend, and consequently I didn’t have posts up this week! Whoops. It seems the only time I can really sit down and research and write blog posts these days is over the weekend when my husband is home. Better luck this weekend!

In the meantime, won’t you share some comments on what you’d like me to write about here? I’ve noticed that I’ve lost some subscribers, and readers aren’t commenting here like you used to. So I want to make sure I’m not just typing to myself n’at.

Are there any topics you’d like me to hit on, or questions you have for me? kthx.

And now a roundup:

  1. I liked when you talked about daily finances (your savings goals, how much you are spending on groceries, your day to day fight to save here and there, the meals that you served etc.)

  2. I agree with Ann. I like reading the topics you blog about now, but I also miss some of the more day to day savings stuff that you focused on before.
    Mary @ Tips & Treasures´s last post ..New Pampers Gifts to Grow code

  3. I, too, am a goal setting person. I definitely noticed when your house savings graph disappeared.
    Oh, and I would definitely eat the egg.

  4. Hey, thanks for the feedback. I’ve been blogging so long part of me feels like I’ve run out of those little tips and tricks to share, but there’s gotta be stuff still! I’ll keep thinking about those types of things.

    I haven’t blogged about meals much lately and I should again soon since I’ll be back to cooking. We’ve been very blessed to have people bring over meals, and I’ve also had lots from the freezer to cook. We got some restaurant gift cards for Christmas and we’ve been able to use those for to-go meals.

    Karen — the graph plugin thing that I used for my savings goals…yeah something went funky with it. I was trying to tweak it and it corrupted and now I can’t get it back. I ought to find another one! I like seeing the graph move.

  5. I don’t know if you know much about this living in Pittsburgh, but I would like reading about how to save money and eat healthy when you live in a small town where things are crazy expensive. There aren’t any CSAs here and we do have a small famer’s market that I need to take more advantage of but any tips you might have up your sleeve would be great to read about.

    Love your blog but not much of a commenter. I need to get better about that in general.

  6. I loved when you would feature your thrift store finds. I just find it inspiring! :-)
    Tiffany´s last post ..Bite Me- One Seriously Funny Cookbook GIVEAWAY!!!

  7. Great tips Kacie. Agree with the above, pls post more tips on day to day savings.

  8. I hope i can get to a thrift store soon! It’s been a LONG time.

  9. Since your grocery shopping habits have changed (and look a lot like mine) any tips to save on your revamped shopping list would be great. At this point my strategy is just ignoring the total at the cashier! Whatever happened to your friend who was paying down her debt? I liked the little graph, too!

  10. I like to hear any tips you can think of to save money with two small children. Couponing is difficult with young’uns and so is thrift-store shopping. I know people do it but I have different priorities. I love to hear any advice you have and I like the other people’s suggestions. Maybe you could also go back in your old posts and re-post them with edits and updates.

Sorry, comments for this entry are closed at this time.

Hey! I'm Kacie, wife to Shane and mother to Jonathan (7), Vivienne (5) and Amelia (2) . I write about my family's finance: how we save money, improve our spending, and plan for the future.

I hope I can inspire and encourage you to improve your situation. See disclosure.

I'm adopting a much slower-paced posting schedule, and treating this as a hobby blog now.

Keep in Touch!
