2nd Blogiversary! +Starbucks Giveaway

Sharing is caring!

I can’t believe it! Two years ago today I took the plunge and started this blog as a way to help others with their grocery budget. This blog and I have changed quite a bit in the last two years and I want to celebrate with a giveaway at the bottom of this post!

I’m still in shock I’ve made it this far. I have a bad habit of starting things with big ideas, and never seeing it through to the end. But this time is different; I’ve seen the way my posts change people and encourage them wherever they are in life, and it brings me such joy to see you say things like “I never knew I could do that!” or even offer up your own life story. Without you, I’d pretty much be shouting at a wall, so from the bottom of my heart, thank you. Thank you for diligently reading every day, for putting up with changes, and for offering your own advice. I’ve learned so much just from reading your comments!

As of today, I have 700 blog posts written. WHAT. I didn’t think I had that much to say, but apparently I was wrong! A small handful have been super popular, whether being spread across Pinterest or shared via Facebook, and I want to highlight my best ones, especially if you’re new here.

What’s next?

I have some great ideas and I can’t wait to get it all on paper and start sharing it with you! I want to do more with freezer meals, posting meal plans and tips and tricks to make it easier. Sometime soon I also want to share more healthy eating/fitness tips; not as an expert, but as someone who lost weight and has kept it off for over a year and wants to encourage you if you’re in the same boat I was. Part of my blog name, No Getting Off This Train, was because I committed myself to losing my baby weight, and once I jumped on, there was no getting off. I’m not saying I never slipped up, but knowing that I was now accountable here really helped. I miss posting stuff like that, so if you’re open and willing, I may start to add some more health posts!

And now it’s time for the giveaway! Like last year, I’m giving away a $25 Starbucks E-Gift Card, which will be sent to your email if you win. The giveaway ends Sunday, March 12th. Good luck, and once again, thank you so much for being a loyal reader!

I am from Canada (but hubby is American from Washington state) so some things don't apply up here. We do love a journey to grocery outlet!! I am so inspired by your blog though! Living in one of the most expensive areas (Vancouver BC just outside) and being on mat leave with my second child, I'm always looking for ways to trim the grocery budget! Love the recipes and ideas!!! Newer to your reading list but loving it! Thank you!!!
