Can I ask you two quick questions?

Ok, well, it’s really three questions, counting the one in the title!

As I’ve been thinking through future blog post plans, I’ve found myself wanting to know exactly why it is that you read my blog.

I mean, obviously you are here because you have some interest in saving money! But there are a lot of places on the web where you can get money advice, so that is probably not the whole reason you read this blog.


If you tell me specifically why it is that you like reading my blog, that would really help me know how to best serve you in the future.

There are only two questions, and you can type the answers right here on the form; no need to click anywhere else.

And just FYI, your feedback is anonymous.

Of course, if you want to answer the questions in a regular blog comment below, that is totally fine too.

Thank you in advance!

I love that you provide examples of doable frugal or sustainable swaps that I can go immediately implement in my life after reading your post. You also show that being frugal doesn't mean a life of sacrifice and suffering. I don't have a ton of friends who are concerned about being frugal so your site also provides a community of like-minded people for me, as well as inspiration and encouragement that my small frugal steps do matter!

For future posts, I love, love, love when you do the freezer clean-out challenges, so maybe you could do more recipes or posts where you show how you use up items about to go bad in your fridge or pantry. I would also love to see posts about frugal swaps for each room of the house (what are things that I can change in the kitchen, in the bathroom, etc. to be more frugal). I also would love to see more posts about how you tie being frugal into also being sustainable.

What strikes me is all the different ages of your readers who can all relate to you.

I have read your blog on and off for 8 years but during the pandemic I started reading you everyday for a little bit of normalcy. I think you have calmed a lot of people.

As far as what I want to see in future blog posts since you have a diverse group of people you should probably stick to what you are doing. Everyone likes the frugal and cooking entries. And the occasional blogs, for example, homeschooling does not interest me but I can just skip it. But some readers would find it helpful.

Thanks for all you do, just continue!!!

I love the age range too! There are college students and grandparents (I know I've heard from multiple readers in their 80s) and everything in between.

It is beautiful to be among kind and respectful people.

I am interested in frugality so I read your blog and learn from you and this community. I love the five frugal things and what everyone is doing. There is a lot of good thinking, resourcefulness and ingenuity going on here. I love the Stitch Fix good and the fails.

I am a person of faith and appreciate how your faith is part of your blog without being imposing or pushy. My demographic is work full time in engineering (nerd), daughter is in college, married, in my 50s, living in a very expensive area, cook because I have to. ... bake because I want to.

That is so relatable. Why is baking so much more fun than cooking??

(probably because baked good are more fun to eat than other foods. Ha.)

I filled out the survey but forgot to say that another thing I like about your blog is that you are a few years ahead of me kids-wise, and I really appreciate the glimpses into the future that I get from reading. I'll also echo what I said in the survey and what I see in the comments-- your kindness really shines through and I respect and admire that and aspire to be that sort of person in my own life.

I love your blog for the same reasons others have mentioned. Because you're thoughtful and kind and respectful. And because the comments section is not a dumpster fire.
