I'd like a regular posting of the best price of certain things. I'm starting a price book and would love some help with knowing when something is a good deal!

wickmilm

Follower horray!

Love your tips on food and saving money. I cant think of any thing that needs to be updated on the posting schedule.

Audrey

More comparisons of making things from scratch (like sauces) and how much it will save you over buying the sauces.

Oakley

I have been following you since late October!

Can't think of much you could improve on. I always wish that there were posts about our local grocery store (we have no Kroger, Publix, Albertsons, etc..). All we have is HEB and they don't double or have loyalty cards so any tips on them would help!

Maybe you could incorporate a Freebie Friday, where you list free deals or ask others to post things they have been able to pick up for free. Other than that, I think this blog is doing great!

Nikki

I have been following you for about 6 months now!

Nikki

I wouldn't mind seeing a monthly summary of your savings - like your shopping recap posts, but rolled into 1 monthly sumamry. But thats a loot of extra work if its not already something you track - so in that case, just keep doing what you are doing!

I've been a follower since September - thanks for the great tips & ideas!

I also posted a link on my blog. Thanks so much for these fun giveaways!

stacey

I don't know that I have any brilliant suggestions for your site, I think you are doing a great job covering a lot of areas. One idea for giveaways would be for newcomers to win a chance to be in a coupon class of yours.

Laura, I think you have a unique blog in a world FULL of money-saving blogs. Instead of posting every little deal you find, you spend more time teaching and demonstrating frugality! (Honestly, sometimes I think those every-deal-in-the-world blogs cause me to spend more money!) Add to that your upbeat, uplifting tone, and you have quite a successful blog! If you wanted to add something, I agree with the previous poster who suggested doing more price comparisons between store-bought items and made-from-scratch items (like the spaghetti sauce). Keep up the GREAT work!

Hmm, I think your blog is perfect! I can say that I do not want to see retail deals and updates for every single fantastic coupon that is out there. I have to blogs in my reader that about to go because I can't handle the updates 20 times a day.

I'm sure whatever new idea you come up with will be great. I really do like your scheduled posts like "though provoking thursdays" and such. Keep up the good work!

Maybe we could see a review of the week-- how much you spent total, how much you saved total, what you used, etc. Also, maybe once in a while we could see what you didn't use that you got with coupons-- although I'm not sure this ever happens with you!! :)

Rachel

I sent out a Tweet informing people of this great giveaway!! @rnoelhaney

Love your blog. Especially the recipes and money saving tips. Can't think of anything I'd add or change.

I agree with some of the other posters, in that I read your blog more for your tips on frugality. Don't get me wrong, I rely on your deal posts and coupon match ups, but I love your blog's balance!

I'd love it if you'd be able to offer an online version of your coupon class. I know you'd have to charge a fee, but I'm sure the savings would off-set it.

Only change I would make is MORE PICTURES!!!!! I know you've streamlined your shopping in the last few months, but I miss the pictures of all your awesome shopping adventures (especially your Grandma's Target gift card challenge!!!). That is the fun stuff :) Thanks for everything this year!

In addition to the things you're already doing, which are all really helpful for me, I would enjoy seeing what you spend each week, total. For example, you've mentioned that you only use a particular brand of Tide detergent, but I'm pretty sure you don't always have a coupon for it. Do you buy things like this from CVS, rolling over your ECBs, or do you sometimes have to pay full price?

I have to buy certain items each week, and sometimes I've stockpiled them and sometimes I haven't, so I have to pay more for them than I want to. Does this happen to you, and if so, how do you fit it into your budget?

Just an idea... Thanks, Laura!

I'm a follower! Thank you for such an awesome giveaway! I *love* Target!

Leesa

I'd love it if you'd post more of the deals that you score. The other day you were posting how you haven't paid for toilet paper in years. I'd like you to post when you buy things like toilet paper, toothpaste and things of that sort and how much you paid for them and which coupons you used. I'm still having trouble in this area.

I posted about your giveaway on my Facebook!

I'd also like to see more coupon tips,websites, or deals for organic food. I know they are hard to find, but I don't buy regular eggs and milk because of the hormones. I'd like to see more healthy deals!

For something I'd like to see incorporated I'd have to say maybe links to printable coupons!

I like everything you are currently doing! Over the past week I have stockpiled maxi pads, tampons, dishsoap,cookie dough, potatoes and bar soap. I have spent less than $5.00 out of pocket.
You rock!
