An Important Letter to My Readers – Coupon Geek Website is Changing!

To All My Fabulous Coupon Geek Readers:

Back in 2008 when I created “Coupon Geek,” I was working on finding ways to save money and help my family get closer to a debt-free life. I began sharing those ways with the few friends and family members that were following at the time. I was hoping that we all might benefit from sharing our stories. The majority of my posts were things we were doing to save a buck here and there that added up to quite a bit at the end of the month. Things such as frugal family outings, fun craft ideas, freezer cooking finds, ways to reuse/re-purpose items, sharing grocery store savings pictures (and how I accomplished those savings) and just ways to save on various areas of our budget. And a big part of those savings did come in the form of coupons and catching a hot deal.

Over the course of the last four years, I’ve been incredibly blessed to have watched Coupon Geek grow–far beyond my wildest dreams. I am so very thankful for each one of you that comes and shares a part of your day with me. But somehow I have slowly drifted from being a savings blog writer to one that focuses mainly on posting coupons and deals–with so many of them being “hurry before it’s gone” type scenarios. Sadly, a lot of what I get time to post is missed by a lot of you that only get a chance to jump online once a day or even less.

My writing and sharing the ways I’ve personally found savings each week only gets to pop-up “when I have time,” which always seems limited these days. I spend so much time finding “hot” coupons that I don’t get to share real-life ways to save. And while coupons are a huge part of my monthly savings, it’s just that–just a part of it. I’ve watched over the last year or two how coupon values are declining, store coupon policies are becoming stricter, shelves are being cleared and a lot of coupons are becoming rarer. It’s becoming a little harder for all of us to save, hasn’t it?

And while all this has been going on, I’ve also changed my own lifestyle. I’m taking more time to become knowledgeable in where my food comes from and how it affects my family’s health, short-term and long-term. I’m doing all I can to find ways to bring healthier options to our table and not break our budget (such a tough task!) Slowly, very slowly, I’m learning. And yet, I don’t seem to have time to share much of this with you.

So today is the day I end what some may classify me as right now–a “deal-blogger.” And instead, I am going back to my roots–to where I started–of a “savings blog writer.” Oh, there will still be coupons and deals–and even some freebies–to be found here on Coupon Geek. The website will still be quite similar. But they won’t be on a “as it happens” type basis. You may have even noticed recently that I’ve cut back on the time spent on that already. Overall folks, several of the things I post are still around at the end of the day or even days later. I am going to take the focus of my time off of trying to post things close to when they happen and instead use it to share ways to change your lifestyles as a whole–and help you to save money long-term. I hope to learn right along with you as we find ways to save on our own without always being so dependent on what the coupons and sales dictate for us.

I know this means I will no longer be the type of blog that some of you choose to follow. And while I never want to lose a reader, my heart truly wants my readers to be happy and you should only follow blogs that are a good fit for YOU. Time is precious. Stay connected with only those that bring you what you need from a blog. There are hundreds of new “deal-bloggers” popping up weekly and you’ll have no problems finding another one if you want those coupons and deals faster. Just please choose only those that have your best interest at heart.

I thank all of you that will continue to follow me. For those of you that have been following me from the beginning, you know the path I’m heading back to. I’m not “re-branding” but just working on getting back to who I once was. I’m a writer at heart, you guys. I may not always be the best at grammatically expressing everything but I’m just me–just trying to keep it real and have some fun while saving you a buck or two in the process, if I can.

I am going to take a couple days of vacation and then I’ll be back. I won’t be able to turn things around overnight. It will take a while to find what I feel works for good postings. But I’ll still be here if you are interested in hearing what I have to share. And when I pop back on in a couple days, I’ll not only have postings on ways to save money, but I’ll have some more of those giveaways that you love from my generous sponsors. Keep your eyes open on the Coupon Geek Facebook Page as I’ll probably be popping on every now and then to chat while “on vacation.”

Thank you for taking time to read this incredibly long posting! See you all very soon!

    Thank you so much! You are exactly right–that’s what I am doing–following my heart. Thank you so much for sticking around! I am very thankful for that!

    Blessings to you and your family!

    Couponista,

    Thank you so much! I’ve definitely felt a need to change for awhile. Thank you so much for continuing to read. I hope I can provide you with even more savings this way!

    Blessings to you and your family,
    Jaycie

  11. Joanne Jones says

    Enjoy your few days of vacation and just be aware that I am looking forward to reading your new ways to save without the use of coupons! Going back to your roots can be very rewarding! Good Luck!

  12. coupongeek says

    Thank you, Joanne! My kids are so excited at the thought of me not working for a few days. I told them we can do whatever their heart desires since I’m doing what mine desires. :)

    Thank you for continuing to be a reader! That means so much to me!

    Blessings to you and your family,
    Jaycie

  13. cassandra says

    Thank you so much for your time and money saying deals. Im very new to couponing and as a mother of 4 it has helped tremendously. Thank you

  14. coupongeek says

    Hi Cassandra,

    Thank you so much for your kind words! I’m hoping that I’ll be able to find time to do even more posts to help the new couponers. It’s hard to figure it all out in the beginning but so much fun once you get the hang of it.

    Thank you for being a reader!

    Blessings to you and your family,
    Jaycie

  15. Jennifer says

    I will certainly be sticking around! I look forward to seeing your new posts! Thank you for what you do!

  16. Jami Lynn says

    I look forward to the changes on the blog! We too are (slowly) switching our lifestyle. We’re expanding our garden this year, and taking more notice of where our food comes. We plan on exploring the outdoors more. We’re lucky to have a State Forest and a large State Park within 20 minutes – and both are free! I think the changes you and your family are making fall in line nicely with the changes my family has in store so it’ll be nice to follow along and get some inspiration :)

  17. Christy says

    Jaycie!

    I know you will be wonderful at whatever you do because you have a lot of heart! I’ve always thought so much of you and you have helped me grow not only as a blogger, but as a person. Your gardening, fun recipes, and cute activities for the kids are always what I have loved about your blog and can’t wait to see what you have up your sleeve! I wish you the best and will always, always, always be here to read, follow and be a friend (even though we both know I’m not always great at that these days). I love you and wish you all the happiness and love that your heart can hold with your new endeavor! XOXO.

    Christy

  18. Gail216 says

    I am a foodie like you and enjoy reading everything that you post whether it is coupons or food related. I WILL NOT be leaving. Please keep up your great work! We love you!!

  19. coupongeek says

    Thank you so much, Jennifer! I hope I can keep finding ways for us all to save money. I’m always keeping my ears open and mind open to new things. We’ll see what happens! :)

    Blessings to you and your family,
    Jaycie

  20. coupongeek says

    Thank you so much, Jami Lynn! I’m hoping that as I share things you’ll share what you find, too. We are along the same lines–getting more into the outdoors and just slowing life down some to enjoy it more.

    Blessings to you and your family,
    Jaycie

  21. Alona says

    So many other coupon sites do the “here’s the deal hurry over now” type blog. I think your blogging will be a much needed change not just for you, but everyone else. Enjoy the time off with your family.

  22. coupongeek says

    Christy,

    We have always learned from each other and found such great inspiration from sharing what is in our hearts. You’ve been a great support to me over the years and you know I haven’t forgotten that. Some of my best ideas came from those 2AM phone calls, LOL. (Seriously wish you were in the same timezone) We’ll continue to grow together as bloggers, friends and just as people.

    And you know I expect to see some more writing from you, too, right? ;)

    Jaycie

  23. coupongeek says

    Thank you so much, Gail! I’m glad you are a foodie because I have quite a few new postings in my head that are food related. I need to post them so I don’t have to keep bugging my hubby with listening to them all (though he’s such a good sport!) LOL.

    Blessings to you and your family,
    Jaycie

  24. coupongeek says

    Thank you so much, Alona! It’s part of the reason I felt comfortable getting away from the “hurry up” side of blogging because I know it’s still out there if my readers need it. Hoping I can live up to finding other ways to save so that everyone can save twice as much!

    Blessings to you and your family,
    Jaycie

  25. Megan says

    Thank you! In my own adventure in evaluating spending, one of the things that gets me in trouble is a quick offer. Oftentimes I don’t weigh those purchases the same as I would an item on my shopping list. So many are things we don’t need. I’ve followed you for a long time and appreciate your “back to your roots” announcement.

  26. Kathy says

    Thank you for all the wonderful info, advice and savings ideas you have passed on. My family has benefited many times over because of your research and passion. Looking forward to keeping up with you when you return from some much needed time off. :)

  27. says

    Hi Jaycie,

    I just wanted to let you know that I won’t be going anywhere. :-) I’m a long-time reader, and I love the fact that you are in the Chicagoland area. (We went to the Sears aka “Willis” Tower today! But I digress…..) It’s always fun to know that the some of the blogs I follow are somewhat local.

    Anyway, if you ever need help with the design of your site as you move in a new direction, I am a blog designer, too. :-)

    I hope you have a great vacation!

  28. Lisa Higdon says

    Change and growth are always a good thing! Remember the old adage of “teach a man to fish…” and stop stressing over posting deals that may or may not be available nationwide. I look forward to the new content.

  29. says

    Those minute-by-minute coupon deals have their place, but so does simple lifestyle changes that can save much more in the long run than a quick free item at CVS.

    I, for one, look forward to a fresh new approach to saving & living. I will be here when you get back. Unplug, unwind & enjoy the present.

    Rhonda

  30. Jen says

    I liked following you before.. but I think now I am going to LOVE it! Your new style seems to be where my heart is now.. I want to become a healthy, purposeful, frugal family. Can’t wait to see what happens with your blog! :)

  31. says

    I just started following recently {last couple of months} but I totally get where you are coming from! I started my site but I realized that I didn’t want it to *just* be deals and coupons. I needed something more me, so I changed it up a little. Congrats on following your heart! I’ll still continue be a reader! :)

  32. says

    I’ll still be here! I admire your willingness to make your blog what you feel it should be even if it means losing some readers. It can be hard sometimes to keep a blog true to your life, but I think it’s a great thing. I am very excited to see the new direction. It’s great to catch a quickie deal once in a while, but I think it’s nice you’re moving away from that and I think it’ll be even better. I too jumped on the couponing/saving every penny bandwagon for a while, but now I’m more concerned with the quality of food and were it comes from. I don’t always have the money to buy what I’d like to, but I’m working on it. Good luck!

  33. Emily says

    Your blog reignited my passion for couponing since I started reading it almost three years ago. It was my first blog subscription of this type. Best of luck with your future blog-endeavors.

  34. Percilla says

    Will be staying on as a reader! The way your blog was before is what brought me here in the first place. The hurry up deals are good but there are many of those. We need a place to help us with saving money while using healthier foods. Keep up the good work and I will see you on FB!

  35. Brenda says

    I have been reading your blog of about a year and love it. I am looking forward to the ‘new’ website. Enjoy your few days off! Thanks for everything you do.

  36. coupongeek says

    Thank you, Megan! That’s always been my fear in posting a lot of the “hurry now deals” is that they don’t give my readers time to evaluate the purchase and can lead to impulse buys and actually a loss in savings. It’s hit or miss on those types of deals if they truly help overall.

    Feels good to be going back to my roots! :)

    Blessings to you and your family,
    Jaycie

  37. coupongeek says

    Thank you, Kathy! I love that you used the word passion as it truly is what I feel for helping other save money.

    Thank you so much for being a continued reader!

    Blessings to you and your family,
    Jaycie

  38. mary says

    Thanks for all the time and effort you have put into this site…I hope doing the new site brings a smile to your face …and I cant wait to read about your adventures in saving:-)

  39. coupongeek says

    Hi Sandra,

    LOL, yeah I think I’ll always call it the Sears Tower, too. And someday I’ll get brave enough to walk out on that lookout ledge they just added.

    Thank you so much for design work offer!

    Glad to have a fellow Chicago-an following! :)

    Blessings to you and your family,
    Jaycie

  40. Lori says

    Thank you for taking the time to let us know why you are changing and I fully support what you are doing. Couponing is just a small part of living and I feel as you do, that this should be a long term project, not just a quick save a buck here or there. I wish you the best and I will keep following you. Thank you for all that you have done!

  41. coupongeek says

    Hi Lisa,

    That is the perfect adage for this situation. I love it! Definitely done stressing over deals! :) I’m looking forward to the new content, too!

    Blessings to you and your family,
    Jaycie

  42. coupongeek says

    Thank you so much, Rhonda! I agree, a free item at CVS is great but making a lifestyle change that can save you twice as much or more is definitely better.

    I’m so excited about a few vacation days. I’ve never really unplugged and disappeared for several days!

    Blessings to you and your family,
    Jaycie

  43. coupongeek says

    Thank you, Corrie! It was so much fun to see you again in Nashville. Every time when I get home, I always wish we had more time to chat.

    It feels good to be going back “home” when it comes to the blog. I’ve missed the old days!

    Hugs to you,
    Jaycie

  44. coupongeek says

    Thank you, Jen! Those are definitely my overall goals for the blog–healthier, purposeful and more frugal. It was much easier for me to keep on that path before when I was sharing it with everyone.

    Thank you for continuing to be a reader!

    Blessings to you and your family,
    Jaycie

  45. coupongeek says

    Thank you so much, Kayla! I love the deals and hot coupons just like everyone but they definitely can be time-consuming. It’s just me (and sometimes my techie friend for all that technical coding) running the site so I had to choose one path. Hoping it turns out for more savings for everyone this way.

    Thank you for continuing to be a reader!

    Blessings to you and your family (and good luck with your site!),
    Jaycie

  46. coupongeek says

    Thank you, Sarah! It is hard to lose readers but I owe it to all my readers to be true to me. I’m so glad there are so many “deal bloggers” now so I don’t have to worry about them losing out. When I first started blogging, there really wasn’t too many of us.

    I’m definitely all for quality of food. It’s hard to afford a lot of it, but we do the best we can, too. You keep up the good work on that path, too–it’s so worth it in the long-run!

    Blessings to you and your family,
    Jaycie

  47. coupongeek says

    Thank you so much, Emily! I am so glad that I helped you find your passion for couponing again!! I’m hoping to be able to do that again for others by helping them see real-life scenarios of how I saved money using my coupons.

    Thank you for following me for so long–I’m deeply appreciative of that!

    Blessings to you and your family,
    Jaycie

  48. coupongeek says

    Thank you so much, Percilla! I’m so glad that you were able to see how the blog was before. It felt so much better to me back in the old days. It may not show the savings so quickly as higher-value coupons but changing a lifestyle will save so much more long-term.

    Thank you for continuing to be a reader. I’m so happy to have you here!

    Blessings to you and your family,
    Jaycie

  49. coupongeek says

    Thank you, Brenda! I am definitely looking forward to a few days off. I’m sure it will result in several days of playing Candyland, visiting a few nearby parks and stacking blocks as high as they’ll go but extra time with my kids is the best vacation possible! :)

    Thank you for continuing to be a reader!

    Blessings to you and your family,
    Jaycie

  50. coupongeek says

    Thank you, Samantha!

    I am looking forward to saving my readers more money beyond coupons and a hot deal.

    Thank you for continuing to be a reader!

    Blessings to you and your family,
    Jaycie

  51. coupongeek says

    Thank you, Mary! Just reading your comment has brought a smile to my face–thank you for saying that to me, as it’s what I needed!

    I thank you for continuing to be a reader–and am looking forward to sharing my savings adventures with you!

    Blessings to you and your family,
    Jaycie

  52. coupongeek says

    Thank you, Lori! It was so important to me to let my readers know what was going on. The posting is about as long as an ebook but I didn’t know how to sum it up in just a few words. I guess when you share from the heart, it flows and flows. I was afraid to just flip the switch to the newer stuff and have my readers wondering where all the instant coupons went. LOL.

    Thank you for continuing to be a reader–I truly appreciate your support!

    Blessings to you and your family,
    Jaycie

  53. Danielle says

    Thank you! I’m so excited to see what’s ahead. I’m the kind of person you’re talking about that only checks once daily…I don’t have anything on my phone that updates me or check FB all day long. I get so frustrated by all the “hurry, first 10,000 only” and it’s 12 hours later. I used to go and order all the “freebies” and samples and found by the time I got them, I wasn’t as interested anymore.

    I appreciate what you are going back to and I can’t wait to see the makeover! After all, I like getting my adrenaline high when I watch the total going down at the grocery store and see how much I can save :). Thanks for all your posts!

  54. coupongeek says

    Thank you, Danielle! Yeah, I figured there were quite a few readers that it was happening to and it made me feel bad when I’d see some of the newsletters somedays with some of the items already being gone. I know how frustrating it can be missing out on a great offer, as it’s happened to me in the past. Hoping the site and newsletters will be full of valuable info now.

    Anxious to go back to how things were and hoping to share more savings stories!

    Thank you for continuing to be a reader!

    Blessings to you and your family,
    Jaycie

  55. says

    Awesome! Sounds like you are doing the right thing for you & your family. I’ve been following your site for years, as I think we started Engineer a Debt Free Life (EADFL) around the same time Coupon Geek started….. Of course as time went on, we also discovered we needed to change things up on our site too as our lives changed, and thus EADFL became Coupons & Freebies Mom. It’s been a great change, and I think yours will be great too! Remember – It’s always good to follow your heart. Best wishes on this exciting change!

  56. says

    I’ve been following your blog for about 1 1/2 years and I’m so happy you’ve decided to “return to your roots”! I’m looking forward to seeing the new format! Good luck!

  57. Rose clark says

    I totally agree with you coupons are changing and now health experts are saying don’t buy anything with a bar code. Cook and use fresh ingredients. One of me favorites is frugal girls she does savings plus great crafts which I’m an artist and art teacher. It’s not hard to find coupons at coupons.comm or write a letter to your favorites. I think it’s great what your doing.

  58. Heather H says

    I really am looking foward to your change. Over the last year I have been trying to live a more simple life. While I still love coupons, I am trying to save money other ways. Thank you for all you have done and whats yet to come!

  59. VJ says

    I’m sticking with you! This post has put a lot of things into perspective, and I look forward to reading what you have to share.

  60. coupongeek says

    Thanks, Charlene! I’m still sorting out the format. We’ll see how it goes.

    Blessings!
    Jaycie

  61. coupongeek says

    Hi Jaime,

    Yes, we didn’t start too far off from each other time-wise. I still remember when you were EADFL. I guess over time, we all learn what’s truly in our hearts and try to gear more towards that direction. Life’s far too short to not do what makes us happy–especially if can keep helping others.

    Thanks for the kind words!

    Blessings,
    Jaycie

  62. coupongeek says

    Thanks, Elisa! Feels good to go back to my roots. I’m hoping it all works out to save everyone more money in the long-run.

    Thank you for being such a long-time reader!!

    Blessings to you and your family,
    Jaycie

  63. coupongeek says

    Hi Rose,

    I like that idea of trying not to buy anything with a barcode. It’s definitely a good challenge, isn’t it? Yes, Frugal Girls is a good one to follow. They’ve been around for a long time, too. I love when the blogs mix savings and crafts! Everyone is so creative and that always helps me try to find more of my creativity, too.

    Good luck on your journey, too, to cook and use fresh ingredients!

    Blessings to you and your family,
    Jaycie

  64. coupongeek says

    Hi Heather,

    I’m on the same kind of path. I still use coupons on several things but have really been dialing it back to make sure things are kept simple, too.

    Thank you for continuing to be a reader!

    Blessings to you and your family,
    Jaycie

  65. coupongeek says

    Hi VJ,

    I’m so glad that I was able to bring some perspective to you, too. It’s so easy to get caught up in the instantaneousness of deals and coupons and I’m finding more savings by making lifestyle changes. Can’t wait to share them with everyone.

    Thank you so much for continuing to be a reader! I truly appreciate it!

    Blessings to you and your family,
    Jaycie

  66. says

    I will be looking forward to your new posts as I have gone the same direction you are heading in and know that the healthier choices are harder to find. Have a lovely few days off.
    Shalom,
    Joanne

  67. coupongeek says

    Hi Joanne,

    It’s so good to hear so many of my readers going down the same path as us and wanting to choose healthier choices, too. Thank you for your kind words and vacation wishes.

    Thank you for continuing to be a reader! I’m hoping to find healthier savings for all of us!

    Blessings to you and your family,
    Jaycie

  68. says

    I totally agree that coupons are not what they used to be! I used to be able to really stock up on items and it just isn’t happening anymore. I can’t help ut feel that TV killed it. I am looking forward to the new things you will post. I have been a follower for a long time now. :)

  69. Cynthia says

    I have been with you since 2009 and I will continue to be a reader. You have to do what your heart tells you and I respect that. I am always excited to start a new journey and see where this will take us. Thanks for the great website and blog!

  70. Mary in Minnesota says

    When any of us turn back to our former selves, we wonder why it took so long to go back. I am looking forward to your NEW newsletter! I am sure you will share your knowledge and your excitment of life with us, and I am looking forward to your NEW newsletter.

    RE: the get the coupon before it’s gone! I am so so so tired of doing that myself, and not getting the coupon, that I’ve just quit 6 coupon newsletters. I got so tired of not getting my “wonderful” coupon, or going to a post numerous times to print the I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter $.75 coupon, to find out it’s at it’s print limit.

    Don’t leave us completely! Wishing you and yours, love and laughter till the end of time! With gratitude for your work helping all of us, Mary

  71. Jacqueline says

    Jaycie, Thank you for vocalizing what I have been experiencing with the ‘mad rush’ to grab a quick deal to save money. It is very time consuming, and, after all, we can’t put a price tag on the value of our time. I think you have made a smart choice for the future of your blog. As you said, it will not be an instantaneous evolution. Enjoy the time off, you deserve it! I’ll still be a loyal reader, for sure! All the best, Jackie

  72. twyla says

    I’m excited for your new direction. Good job doing what is best for you! Thanks for the update. For me, it’s a good change and I’m happy about it.

  73. Nicole says

    I appreciate all that you do for us budget concious people. I have loved to save and find new ways to do so. I look forward to reading all that you have to offer. I agree that couponing has changed. I am all about saving money for my family and that is what I will continue to do and I will always be a coupon geeker LOL.

    I don’t subscribe to your blog, but I check in whenever time permits. Just want to thank you for everything you’ve done and shared to all of us. Will continue to be a reader/visitor!

    That sounds awesome! I coupon, but due to my daughter’s health problems we have had to really watch what we bring into our house. Unfortunately, there is not many coupons for fresh foods so I have been spending more on our grocery bill. I would love to find ways to save on fresh veggies and fruits and other things that are healthy. Good Luck!

    I agree. That show did not help coupons too much. A lot of things have changed since it aired. I just hope that somehow it got people into coupons and that they are saving money somehow.

    Thank you for continuing to be a reader and for following for so long. I appreciate it!

    Blessings to you and your family,

    Mary, that is so very true! I probably should have turned and headed back to my roots over a year ago. Just hard to make a switch when you get into a routine, I guess. Feels good to be back on the right path. Hoping everyone likes the new format.

    I don’t think I could ever leave you guys, unless I had some family or medical issues–and I’d probably bounce back online as soon as I could! I love blogging and helping others and it’s so much fun for me.

    Thank you so much for continuing to be a reader. I am thankful that you are here and I look forward to sharing a hopefully better newsletter with you.

    Blessings to you and your family,

    Thank you so much, Jackie! I’ve been enjoying time away from the computer the last few days. My daughter and I just took our time shopping today and it was relaxing for once. I’ve felt so hurried in the past. I guess sometimes we just have to slow things down a bit to enjoy them a little more.

    The “mad rush” of couponing has been getting to me. I’m moving more towards keeping things simple. Or that’s my all-time goal. Eventually I’ll get there. :)

    Thank you for your kind words and for continuing to be a reader.

    Blessings to you and your family,

    LOL, I love that “coupon geeker” comment. Thank you for the laugh and your kind words, Nicole. I’m hoping that we’ll all learn how to change our lifestyles to save long-term. It will be fun to share what I find and to hear what everyone else is finding, too.

    Thank you for continuing to be a reader. I appreciate it! :)

    Thank you, Debbie! I appreciate you stopping by when you can. Sometimes the daily newsletter can become overwhelming in an inbox if we don’t get to check it often. I usually go straight to my favorite sites, too.

    Thank you, Iliass! I’m soaking in every moment of time offline that I can. Needed a little break from the view of my computer monitor. LOL.

    It’s my pleasure to be able to help my readers. I’m so glad I’ve been able to help you!

    Thank you for continuing to be a reader!

    Thank you, Mandy! I agree, it can become costly sometimes to eat healthier. I just have to keep reminding myself that long-term it’s better. And I usually feel better eating that way, too. My biggest goal with the website is to keep finding ways to get all of us some healthier food options without breaking our budgets. Tough task but it’s what I hope to be able to do. I’ll keep looking for those fresh food coupons that sometimes pop-up.

    Thank you for continuing to be a reader!
