Good-bye Green Bay

Dear Green Bay Savers,

It has been extra quiet over here at GB Savers for well over a month. I have been enjoying my new baby girl. Little ones really do grow so very fast! During my month "off" we had another new development in our family. My husband got a promotion that will require us to move to Arizona the end of this month.

We moved from Arizona to Green Bay in 2000 and still have family and friends there so it will be kind of like going "home". I thought about running GB Savers from afar, but decided against it. This seems like a good time to back away and concentrate on my family.

If you are looking for a local blogger I highly recommend the Green Bay Consumer site. Jennifer will take good care of you! You can get great local deals without a bunch of fluff and spam. She doesn't re-post all the same deals you can find on big national blogs and she won't tell you every deal is "HOT". You can follow the Green Bay Consumer all the same ways you follow GB Savers: daily email, full RRS feed, Facebook, Twitter, and even Google+!! If you're just starting out Jennifer will even be offering some free coupon classes in the months ahead so be sure to take advantage of those.

While I won't be posting anything new or updating posts I will leave the site up. That way if you want you can read or re-read my how-to type posts. Here are a few of my favorites:
I will really miss blogging here and sharing deals with all of you. I definitely won't be giving up my money saving ways... I'll just be adapting them to my new location!

Thanks for being some of the best readers a blogger could ask for!

Keep saving!

Free Fun: De Pere Fire Station Open House

The De Pere Fire Station Open House is this Saturday, October 8th from 10am - 1pm. Tour the fire station, check out all the emergency vehicles, fire safety demos, freebies, prizes, and snacks! With five little boys we have made this event an annual tradition. Some years we need winter coats and freeze, other years we are wearing shorts and sunscreen. Looks like it will be shorts again this year! Hope to see you there!
