Happy New Year to you!

I want to say thanks to all of you for supporting this blog by reading the posts and for posting your comments and questions all year long!  I also want to say a special thanks to Nancy for her willingness to help everyone both on the blog and in person at swaps! And one more thanks to everyone for keeping the blog civil. I know we get some unwelcome and negative comments every once in a while, but you all do a great job of turning things around and not stooping to their level. I love that we keep this blog positive and helpful without the bashing that you see on some other forums.

I have great news about the year ahead! WRAL has renewed my contract for another year so we get to keep on saving together throughout 2012!  I offer my great thanks to WRAL for giving us another year to help each other and share those great deals! My thanks to John, Jodi, Anne, Lisa and everyone at WRAL who helps out with the blog!

Happy 2012!

    That is wonderful news! I told a friend about your blog this past weekend! Happy New Year!

    A BIG thanks to Faye and WRAL for helping all of us save money and share with others during such tight times!

    How wonderful! I'm still a newbie to couponing and don't know what I would do without your blog!

    Like rwsmith1112, I hadn't even thought about not having you around next year - so glad WRAL made the right choice! Your blog has saved me a great deal of money and made a very tight budget work. Your tips, ideas, and blog have been shared with local friends and family members as well as those across the country. Thanks for everything, looking forward to another great year!

    I check out the SmartShopper blog more than 1/day! And I recommend your blog and classes (took your 8/6/11 class)to anyone who will listen.
    May your 2012 be as wonderful as you are, Faye.

    Mercy! What would we all do without your helping hand in couponing? I'd be totally lost. I am totally thankful that WRAl decided to keep you and the wonderful job you do Faye to help all of us who know the importance of using any resource that helps our families save. Keep it coming and I do send so many to your site to see why I do what I do. Happy New Year to you, your family, and all the coupon families like me. May the year of 2012 be the year we all save millions in food cost. Elizabeth

    AWESOME!! Don't know what we would do without you. Thanks for everything you do for us! I also read your blog several times further the day.

    I love this blog though I have less and less time it seems to come here. Faye, thank YOU so much for all you do and thanks to Nancy and everyone else who contributes here.

    Wow - thank you so much for your generous comments. I am really touched. Sometimes I struggle with the balance of keeping up with the blog and classes and taking care of my family and very active kiddos. I wish there were enough hours in the day to post everything I want and still get meals, laundry, dishes, grocery shopping, soccer practice, band practive, homework, etc done. That is probably the struggle many of you have with work and family. Reading your comments is kind of like my annual review and I really appreciate your feedback.

    If you have suggestions for the coming year of things you would like to see on the blog, feel free to post them here or send me an e-mail at

    In the next couple weeks,I'll be posting information on finances including tracking your savings, creating a budget, etc.

    Thanks again to all of you!

    Woo Hoo! I can't imagine this being anything but a "no brainer" for them. I know tons of folks that follow you and I tell everyone I know about you. You, your blog and the sunday paper are just about all I need (and my notebook)! OK, the swaps are great, too!
