Update on CICT

Hello everyone!  It has been a long time!  I hope all of you are well and enjoying the beauty of the Christmas season. 

Thank you so much for your kind emails, comments and words that you’ve shared with me about my blogging hiatus.  I have enjoyed a little break with some time to recharge.  At this point I’ve decided to post as I’m inspired, whether it be about a tip, deal, craft, or some other idea that fits the theme of the blog.  The title of the blog, Couponing in Critical Times, came from the very first coupon workshop I ever held.  The blog became an amalgamation of all things frugal—reducing energy use and consumption, meal planning and cooking, shopping with a budget, couponing deals, gardening and preserving foods at home, and, of course, tips on how to streamline and save.  Hubby brought up the idea of changing the name of the blog to better fit with what I will be writing about in the future—less about deals and more about the how and why of living a frugal life—but at least at this point I’m going to keep it as is.  I’ll be interested to hear if any of you have any thoughts about the title of the blog, as you read future posts. 

In the next few days you’ll see a few posts that will give you some ideas about what I’ve been doing with my spare time during the blogging hiatus.  Until then, I thank each of you for reading!


  1. Great article! I've been couponing for years now and I'm always trying to get my friends into it as well. You can experience so much saving and really cut down on your household expenses.
