Happy One Year Anniversary!!!

Can you believe that on this day a year ago, I started this blog??  Sometimes I can't believe it has already been a year and other times it seems like much longer.  I started it as a way to let my mother in law see my great deals after she went back home because it is always super fun to share your successes with a couponing buddy. 

During the year, I buckled down and started doing research on what other blogs do as well as worked on posting lots of recipes, frugal facts, and regular posts like Weekly Goals Sunday, Menu Plan Monday, and Thrifty Thursday.  I have made every effort to do one post a day (sometimes more) which has allowed me the freedom to share lots of new things that I hadn't expected when I first started.

Fun facts about NOVA Frugal Family's First Year:

-over 500 posts
-over 10,000 page views

I am working to try to take this blog to the next level but I know that I needed a little experience under my belt.  I feel like it is only going to get better.  I really appreciate all my followers and comments!!  Look forward to all that I am going to learn in the coming year about being an even better blogger :)  Any advice from you experienced bloggers would be greatly appreciated, as well as readers on what you would like to read!!! 

Thanks for a great first year and I hope many more!!


  1. Well, Happy Birthday, NOVA Frugal Family! :)

    I've really enjoyed reading your blog and getting to read about your deals. That is my favorite part about your blog, as well as reading about your adventures with your little man. I can SO relate! I'll bet my youngest and yours are very close in age. Have a great day!

    1. My little guy is 3 1/2 :) I never know what to expect when I leave the house and he continues to surprise me everyday. He is learning the important things like we can't buy that without a coupon. The one lady in the store the other day said he was really cute! Then, she stopped to watch him. He was working on spelling Tide and picking the correct color bottle! Even the grocery store is an education process :) Glad you enjoy the deals (including the humor of a three year old)!!!

    1. Thanks for letting everyone know. That is a great deal. I didn't get to take advantage of it because I had a playdate all morning and then company!! Wish I had taken a second to take a look. Hope you got something great!
