FrugaLouis- St Louis Coupons, Discounts, Events and Fun!

Archive for the ‘Uncategorized’ Category

I’ve been waiting for this weekend to come! A graphic designer and blog designer have been hard at work, and soon you will be able to see the fruits of their labor.

The new site has an interactive Events Calendar with links to Google Maps and many other new features, along with a completely redesigned look! When we’re up and running, you’ll definitely want to poke around and see what’s new!

Here’s some important information about the new site launch:

  • Tomorrow, Friday, I plan to post “Daily Deals” only. If all goes well, I will be back to regular posting on Monday, January 17.
  • It is likely that we will lose our email subscribers in the transition process. If you are an email subscriber who would like to continue receiving email updates, please re-subscribe when the new site goes live. New email subscribers are always welcome, too! 🙂
  • How will you know the new site is live? When you go to http://www.wordpress.frugalouis.com or http://www.frugalouis.com, you will definitely see the difference and know when the change has been made!
  • There might be some glitches during the transition process. If they are major, I will try to inform you of what we’re doing. If you happen to discover a glitch, please don’t hesitate to email me at frugalouis (at) gmail (dot) com.
  • Please give us your feedback after the new site is up! We value both encouragement and constructive criticism, so please leave a comment or shoot off an email. There will be a “contact” link on the new home page making it easier to contact me.

Woo-hoo! It’s like Christmas!

Perhaps you’ve noticed that things have been a little slow around FrugaLouis lately…

So I must confess that while you are freezing in St. Louis, I am in a land of sunshine and warm weather. I don’t want to rub it in, but it really is lovely having family in a beautiful place! 🙂

Though I’m away for a few more days, there is plenty going on behind the scenes around here! A blog designer is working on a complete redesign of the site, including a new logo by a local graphic designer. I am so excited about this redesign; it’s hard for me not to leak some of the fantastic changes! Let’s just say, however, that our goal is to have a much more user-friendly experience for you at FrugaLouis by the start of the new year.

I think you’re really going to like it and be excited to share the site with your St. Louis friends. Hee-hee…fun, fun!

In the meantime, I’ll aim to post Daily Deals for the next couple of days and then resume regular posting when we return to the land of cold and snow.

Carie has been hard at work getting the Schnucks ad highlights and coupon match-ups ready!

Thanks, Carie!

Happy Thanksgiving to each of you! I hope that you have plans to spend the day (or weekend!) with those you love. Our family will be at the semi-annual reunion with my mom’s side: over fifty people together at a hotel with lots of kids and craziness!

Tomorrow, Thanksgiving Day, at noon, the first in an on-going series will go up. I’ve titled this series Chat with Mom, and I’m really pumped about learning from older women. I think you’ll enjoy it too! The first post in our series is an interview with my very own mother, Ruth B. Anyone who knows her know she is a hoot and a wealth of wisdom on many fronts. I’m blessed to have her as my mom. 🙂 She’s also sharing a family favorite recipe with you all. It’s not low-fat – one of those meals we had on rare occasions – but it sure is unusual and yummy! All of that coming tomorrow at noon.

While you’re here, be sure to enter the giveaway for a $15 certificate to Maven. Maven is a wonderful little boutique in Maplewood that specializes in handmade soaps, candles and beauty products, as well as jewelry. Whoever wins this certificate will have fun figuring out how to use it!

There’s much more going on behind the scenes here at FrugaLouis. Stay tuned and I’ll fill you in over the coming weeks and months. For now, have a wonderful weekend! If you’re interested in Black Friday deals, check out MoneySavingMom, Clippin’ With Carie, or STLMommy for the scoop.

God bless! I’ll be back with you on Monday…

This Saturday, November 13, head to a local Borders bookstore for a Build-a-Bear stories, crafts and more!

Festivities begin at 11AM, and children under 14 must have a legal guardian with them.

Consider calling your local store to find out details before you go.

Hey, Gang! I just wanted to alert you that I’m in the process of making some changes to this site. As I work through the process, there might be glitches (such as the double posts at the moment. Argh!). Please stick with me; I think you’ll be pleased with the result when it comes! 🙂

Thanks!
