I’ve been trying to find a way to articulate my vision & goals for Inexpensively and our network. Then, I stumbled on this Mamavation thing. I had no idea what it was until our gal Katie was using the #mamavation hashtag on Twitter. Of course, even then, I really didn’t understand what it was about. Then, she shared her intentions with us and asked for our support as she aims to be the next Mamavation Mom. I am very excited to support her in her fitness goals, thrilled she has found a support team and wish her all the best. That was as far as it went, until I started following more of the Mamavation “sistahood” on Twitter.
These girls support one another, encourage fitness goals and inspire the rest of us! While I’m not ready to sign up, I have noticed myself paying a little more attention to what I eat. I’m also looking for something active to replace the dance class I can no longer attend. However, I’m inspired by the whole idea of it! Leah at Bookie Boo amazes me, not just with her incredible weight loss journey, but with her ability to create such a tight-knit team of women who lovingly cheer one another on! It’s what I envision for Team Inexpensively.
I want a group of gals who support one another’s blogs, encourage each other in their frugal lives and inspire the world to spend less. I think we’re on the right track. Earlier this week, the gals and I enjoyed a planned 30-minute chat that lasted more than 90 minutes! We talked about our personal blogging goals, next steps for Inexpensively, how we can better work together plus children, travel and Harry Connick Jr. (Swoon!) Last night, I came home from a long day to find an impromptu chat had started on Skype. I love that we’re coming together, bonding and working towards the same vision.
We all arrive at Inexpensively with the same, ultimate goal—to help you lower your budget without lowering your standards. If you have questions, specific money-saving needs or find a deal we haven’t shared, please let us know! We’re going to be working even more closely to bring you the deals, coupon offers and even more frugal living advice. We’ve recently added Holly Syx to the team and are excited to have Kristi Reddell joining us soon. If you are interested in contributing, writing or seeking deals for inexpensively, please contact us.
We are looking forward to a great year, and I can’t wait to get to know the team even better!
