Happy New Year, frugal friends!
I missed talking to you guys last week, but it was definitely a smart choice to take the week off.
I thought I might get a bit of down time, but it ended up being a very busy week, with lots of social plans (mostly for my girls! Sonia and Zoe had 4 sleepovers in 5 days.)
So, I’m not sure I’d have found time to blog even if I’d planned to.
Anyway, to get me back into the blogging groove, here are the top five posts I wrote in 2017.
1. Stitch Fix. And also Stitch Fix. Plus: Stitch Fix.
My October Stitch Fix post is the most viewed post I wrote in 2017.
My September Stitch Fix Post is number three.
And my November Stitch Fix (the one with the flying squirrel sweater!) is the fifth most popular post of 2017.
Some readers really dislike my Stitch Fix posts, but one thing is for certain: an awful lot of people do read them.
Which I completely understand…seeing non-models try on clothes is so much fun. I will almost always click on over to read a Stitch Fix review on someone else’s blog!
I wrote a review post about this more budget-friendly dinner box service, and lots of people read it. It’s the second most popular post of 2017!
When life gets temporarily busy, you have to drop something from your life. There are three things I focus on at times like these, and I let the other stuff go.
(Technically, a Stitch Fix post was #3 and #5, but it’d be very boring if 3/5 in this list were Stitch Fix! So I just picked the next most viewed posts.)
Popular because: it’s always fun to read about someone else’s dumb mistakes.
I wrote this post in January of last year, sharing some kind of big things I learned.
Aaand, that makes five.
(well, 8, because of the Stitch Fix posts. Bonus 3!)
I made my Stitch Fix deliveries a little less frequent, which is why I didn’t have one in December. But I do believe one is headed my way in January.
I feel like this is going to call for some freezing cold outdoor modeling.
Or some shots in poor indoor lighting.
This is a hard choice: personal comfort, or good lighting?
I’m pretty sure I’m going to come down on the side of good lighting.
