Good Bye...

Those of you who have followed the blog for a while have probably noticed I've been slowing way down on posting.  For a long time, Christina and I shared the blogging duties.  Around the time I started questioning whether I wanted to continue with the blog, Christina decided that she was done.  I wasn't ready to make the decision yet, and continued. 

I could tell you how busy life is - I've got three kids, I do all the business accounting/office work for my husband's businesses, cooking, cleaning - blah, blah, blah. We all lead busy lives!  The reality is that we are all able to fit in what we prioritize, and honestly, I've just lost my love of blogging.  At least on a savings level.

I enjoyed it for a long time, and hope that I've inspired some of you to save money while going organic.  Thanks to all of you who have commented, emailed and made me feel like I wasn't posting into the wind!

I will continue to be a drop site for Azure Standard, use coupons, and find creative ways to feed my family as Natural and Organic as possible on a budget.

Thanks again, everyone.....good bye

Erika, thanks for all the time and energy you've put into the site. It's been such a great resource! I think you're awesome and your priorities are in the right place!

Hopefully I'll see you this week for an Azure p/u!

Aww :( and I only just found your blog a couple weeks ago. You have inspired me to go more Organic! Thanks for all that you have done. I hope you won't delete your blog for awhile because I would like to still be able to look back at some of your older posts. I actually just stopped writing my blog a couple weeks ago as well. I wish you the best! Thank you for the information and inspiration!

I have been following your blog for what seems like a few years now. I am from Oregon originally, we had been living near Chicago for 4 years and just moved back. I was excited to be able to follow your local grocery shopping tips. I understand life gets busy. Do you have any Oregon blogs you recommend that we follow now instead? Good luck with everything, both of you!

I will continue with the Azure orders. My drop site number is 619367.

Honestly, I don't know of any other local blog that was posting organic/natural deals. One great site for living organic and natural is passionatehomemaking.com. She's from Vancouver, and is a great resource.

Anyone else have any ideas?

Somehow I missed this post until tonight! Your blog will be missed. I totally hear you on slowing down on posting, though. I find it's much harder to find the time these days... The best to you both!!

frugallivingnw.com is local. She doesn't focus as much on organic but does post whole foods deals. She has definitely helped me save a ton of money!

I haven't had a chance to check in on your blog for awhile...so sad to see you guys go, but DEFINITELY understand! Family comes first! Thank you so much for all of your posts! You'll be missed!

Heather said...

So sad! However, family comes first & we all know that.

My blog isn't entirely organic, but since my family eats almost exclusively organic & we use as many green products as possible, I do highlight eco friendly & organic products.

Saving while eating organic is a challenge & your blog was a great resource!
