So many of you have sent me emails and left comments wondering if I’m OK. I absolutely am alive and well and I really appreciate you guy reaching-out to me! I took a week off from blogging to visit extended family out-of-town and decided to extend the break from blogging a little longer to focus on some projects that we’ve got going on here at the house and to reevaluate the future of the blog.
Over the past few years it’s become very challenging to sustain a coupon blog and it gets very disheartening at times, to spend countless hours everyday and not be able to make it financially successful, so I just needed to take a break. I’ve spent the last nine years posting Meijer deals so it’s become a very big part of my life and I know I would miss it, if I were to completely quit.
There has been a gradual shift to digital coupons (so less people are printing them at home these days) and the economy is doing great (don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love that it is) so we don’t have quite as many people wanting to save at the stores (although they totally should and bank the cash saved…duh!). I realize that so many of you, my amazing followers, are smart enough to realize that there’s never a time to stop saving and I really want to be able to keep bringing you ways to do that at Meijer, but I also have to make sure that there’s enough revenue to cover the expenses of running this website. That’s where you come in!
Revenue is generated from this website when you print coupons and/or interact with the offers or advertisements (but only when it’s something you’re generally interested in) and not enough of that has been happening lately so I can barely cover the basic running-of-the-website expenses these days. I’m going to keep posting deals over the Summer (when I’m not on vacation…like over July 4th…Happy Birthday America!) but I will not be doing the humongous weekly ad match-up lists – it takes a minimum of four hours per week to do the weekly sale list and I just can’t justify dedicating that kind of time, on top of posting deals, right now. Please keep following, liking, commenting and sharing this website with friends and I’ll keep rolling out the best of the Meijer deals!
