Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!! :)

The winner of our contest was Angela R!!

Thanks for a great couple of months guys:) I will miss blogging...but might be back some day:)

This is Goodbye..... :(

After a lot of prayer and thought...I sadly have decided to close my Katie the Frugal Lady blog. This was a hard decision for me, because I LOVE to blog, and I love sharing how to save money with you all. I however have started to notice over the last few months how time consuming it has become, and what it has taken away from my school work, family, and home making! I really think that someday I will start it back up again, but for now, I need to concentrate on what needs to be #1 in my life: my family. I try hard to only blog or post when they are sleeping, but as Ryan's naps get shorter and my classes get harder, I am finding that it is too much. I have SOOO loved the last 2 1/2 months of blogging! And I thank you all for your constant support and spreading the word for me! (Don't worry...I am still going to have the give away drawing this evening!)

Tonight will be my last post for a while...but in the mean time, here are some other GREAT money saving blogs to follow that give just about the same information that I do:

The Krazy Coupon Lady
Maven of Savin' (One of my favorites!!)
The Frugal Girls
Kingdom First Moms

Thanks for all the fun and support! I am sorry to go out so suddenly!! Hopefully I have you on your feet well enough that you can do this on your own now:) "LIKE" the other sites I just posted....they do a fantastic job!

Take care! And hopefully when I am in a different season of life, I can start this back up again! God Bless!!

Mystery Box Deal???

Sorry! All sold out~
I have never done one of these...but I am VERY tempted! Graveyardmall is a website that sells anything from baby toys to furniture and dishes. How the deal works is you pay $19.99 + shipping. You tell them about yourself: age, kids ages, hobbies, likes, pets, etc....and they will put together a dream package for you! You will not know what you are getting...but you are guaranteed to like it! If you do not like what you received, you can send it back for a full refund AND they will pay for the shipping back! Its sooo tempting just for the effect of the surprise!! What do you think? And let me know if you decide to participate! I am anxious to hear what people get! I also have heard these deals do not last long as they are pretty popular!

Go here to check it out!
