From the beginning this site was for my close friends and family to share my great finds and coupon knowledge. When I started the site, I was the only local blogger who had "worked" Publix and knew exactly what to share to make others get the savings I was getting. I ran across Michelle's I Heart Publix blog long before the Fairhope Publix opened. As some of you know, I trekked down to Orange Beach(from Mobile) regularly before the Fairhope store opened. I knew the savings were too good not to share! So I took a leap of faith, gut instinct and a push for a complete stranger(Aubrey, Eastern Shore Mom) and started the website. I figured a few people would get into it--but never thousands. Still shocked.
My original vision--to put all the information out there. To put out in the open the tools, tricks, tips. I told myself from the get go--I would not be a "deal" site. I would not type everyday. (You would be shocked how much time deal bloggers spend on their sites). Well, it seems that was the inevitable road for the site--a daily blog of frugal deals.
But I want to remind you of the core of this site--the basics of it all. Use The Bargain Buggy as a tool to teach yourself how to do the daily deals. I have everything here for free if you will take the time and explore the site. Read the Getting Started tab. Check out the Local Store Policies. It's all here. I have spent countless hours typing it here to help not only my "old" friends--but my "new" ones too. I feel blessed to share what I know. Blessed because by taking that leap, I have met some GREAT people from across the US...all the while saving my family money! So thank you. You all have made a huge impact on my life. You have encouraged me and have changed me forever.
