I have a confession. I’ve had a lot of life changes in the past few months.. and for some reason I felt guilty about them. There are just a few but they are kind of big.. considering I am supposed to be the frugal diva you all know and love.
I started using Essential Oils (this has been several months now.. but some of you might now know this)
We rarely eat processed foods
We raised our food budget to $500 a month
Don’t really shop the drugstores anymore.
I’ve become a online shopping addict. (seriously, I LOVE A deal in my pj’s!!)
Why do I feel guilty? Mostly because I started this blog as the MOST.FRUGAL. person you knew. I saved money in different ways to help stretch our small, small budget. Don’t get me wrong.. I am still frugal however, I’m saving in different ways and in different areas of life.
I’ve always wanted to talk about these things with you– but I still felt as though this stigma of being a frugal diva was something I had to live up to.. because why else would you visit the blog? For the past year, I’ve been struggling with some of these things. I’ve slowly introduced my essential oil experiences but I got such a bad wrap for talking about them on the blog that I decided to stop.
I stopped posting my grocery store shopping trips because I would get responses like “that is too much money to spend” then I would feel guilty about posting it because it was something that people didn’t want to see.
Maybe I care too much? probably.
The reality is; I’ve run this blog for over SIX years. I think I deserve to change– and so do you. 🙂
My message to you is basically this– Don’t stop growing. You owe it to yourself. It’s okay to make life changes and be proud of them.
