My Great New Years Resolution for 2020

New Years Resolution Frugal Wizards

Do you have a New Years Resolution for 2020? I have one, but first a story. Once upon a time, there was this couponing blog called The Coupon Wizards that was started by a group of 4 people, one of which was David that some of you know, and quickly, this “little blog” grew to 10+ admins, plus the original 4, that was bringing you all the top couponing deals around the nation. We had about 15 stores we covered, along with live webinars, online daily deal site deals, freebies & more. Everything couponing.

Enter the year 2020 and this is the state of the union. Everyone is gone except me, Michele. David has the insert & clipping services, separate to this site, but everyone else that used to be here? Gone! David passed on the blog to me and here we are. I’ve been keeping it afloat, but things had to change. I’m only one person and the site as it was, was overwhelming me. Plus, there are lots of ways to be frugal, right? So why concentrate on just one? This is what I did.

Making The Coupon Wizards “Frugal”

I got rid of all stores except the ones I have. I got rid of the matchups, which were costing too much money (I’m all about frugality, right?), the coupon database, that was going up in price by another $100 this year. The gardening section (although I kept the old posts); I have a brown thumb. The travel section; I don’t travel around the US every year so how can I keep up a “section?” The military tab. I’m not in the military like one of our past admins so how could I know what’s important to those who are? You get the idea. My New Years Resolution? Re-vamping the blog. To what, you ask? Read on.



The Coupon Wizards got its start as a couponing blog, and because it’s a great way to save money, the deals will live on. Along with couponing though, there are A LOT of ways to save money and live the frugal lifestyle so that’s where I’m going here. Of course, there are some straight up methods as well, like investing bits of your savings in an IRA (Individual Retirement Account) or something similar over a span of some years, but at the end of the day how many iras can you have? It might help to live the frugal lifestyle along with any savings plan you have, which is why I am going to slowly turn this blog to The Frugal Wizards. If you look around the site, you’ll see some minor changes. I’ve been working on this “re-vamping” since about last April, in case you’ve been wondering where I’ve been. It’s a work in progress and there’s still much to do, but I think it’s going to be great! I don’t normally have a New Years Resolution. I believe that if you want to make a change, do it when you decide. Not wait until some special day. This year I’m making an exception though. Well sort of. It’s more of an ongoing resolution, but being shared with you today. Now my feet will really be held to the fire!

My Frugal New Years Resolution

Couponing blogs are a dime a dozen today. They’re important to the couponing lifestyle, but I felt like you all needed more. As mentioned, there are a ton of ways to be frugal and my hope is to share them with you over the coming years. Also, let’s be honest. Couponing is getting harder every year because they’re catching on to the ways we save a ton. Whether it be restrictions on coupons or lack of good coupons overall, we need to start focusing on additional ways to save money.

I’ll keep some of the favorites. The Publix deals, the printable coupons, the Amazon deals and the like. I’m adding, however, others ways to save our hard-earned money. I love organization & time management so there will be more tips on that. I’ve been looking into homemade products instead of the store-bought expensive ones, so I’ll be posting those that worked. My Instant Pot is pretty new so I’ll post recipes I’ve enjoyed, plus lots more to keep you occupied, and saving that coin, throughout the year.

Here’s to a Great 2020

As always, I love your comments and suggestions so keep them coming when there’s something you want to share. If you prefer to email me, it’s Michele@coupon-wizards.com. Once my New Years Resolution to change the blog over to The Frugal Wizards is complete, I’ll be sure to let you know. Here’s hoping you all have a great 2020 and that you enjoy the changes I’ll be continuing with. Happy New Year!
