In 5 Weeks...

We'll be living in New York City.

Hence the complete absence from my blogging.

Our house finally sold, PRAISE THE LORD!  Nearly three years on the market, lowering the price more times than I can count....ahhh, it's been a long road.

We at first were going to stay in Hutchinson....
Then we thought we'd move to Minneapolis....
All the while knowing NYC was where we would eventually end up and be our "landing spot".

Time has disappeared on us and we are just going to make that giant leap from small-town, MN to NYC.  Queens to be exact.  I am ecstatic to be moving back there!

It's a given we have just a few things going on.  We have sold much of our furniture in a recent garage sale (made over $1,000!), and have been downsizing drastically.  I've been focused on the move, attempting to still do coupons and deals, but not nearly to the capacity I once was.

I haven't decided what to do with this blog yet.  I may continue blogging about deals I find once I am in NYC, but I know life will be different...the nearest Target is just miles away; however, it's a hefty subway ride (we will not have a car)-so it won't be on my "daily errands" list anymore! :)  Plus, there are oodles of deal type sites out there already for NYC that I have stumbled across.

Maybe I'll just simply blog about using our money wisely, yet as richly, as we can in NYC.  I'm just not sure yet.

So perhaps, I will be back soon.  Perhaps it will be 5 weeks (or more) until you hear from me!  Thank you for reading.

PS. Currently at Cash Wise the Lunchables are $1.00 and if you buy a certain amount you get a $1.00 off your next shopping order Catalina.  I bought 5 Lunchables and that was enough to trigger the coupon.  Easy on the go toddler food.  Love it.



  1. Congratulations on the sell of your home! It sounds like you guys have a great adventure ahead!! Best wishes and many blessings!

  2. You are the only blog I know about that did Cashwise matchups which I will miss!!! Best of luck to you and your family!

  3. Wow! So glad to hear from you Brook! Congrats on the selling of your house. That is awesome that you are just going with your dream!

    I think a blog about living richly with your money in NYC would be a fun one to read ;). Can't wait to hear more from you. You surely are missed!

  4. Thank you so much! :) Kristin, there is one other CW blogger, but I believe she only does online coupon match-ups. I can post a link if you are interested, I just gotta find it again in my plethora of blog subscriptions! lol

    Shanan, I am liking the idea of blogging about stretching a buck in NYC...! I was on the DIS today, TRYING to catch up somewhat. I miss you guys!

  5. Hey, good luck with your move! I hope everything goes well for you. We are currently moving also, but only an hour and a half from where we are now. I wish you the best. I also do the Cash Wise match-ups - I use to do just online coupons, but now do them all!!! My blog is:

    Again, good luck, Brook!!! We will keep an eye out for your postings!

  6. Thank you Tonia for posting your blog!!!
