why I blog

Have you ever wondered why bloggers blog? Well, I can’t speak for the rest of the bloggers around the internet, but I’m going to share with you why I blog.

In the beginning

When I first started blogging I wanted to share all of the fabulous deals and steals I found at the grocery store. Friends would ask me how I could get a cart full of groceries for just a few dollars and I was happy to share so they could snag those same deals too. (If you’ve been here from the beginning you remember that I used to load my grocery finds onto my kitchen table, snap a picture, and share details of my shops.)

Growing and changing

Thrifty T’s Treasures has grown and changed over the years…and I have too! Through the years the Lord taught has me that I have more to share with the world than just the fabulous deals that I found at the grocery or drug stores. He’s pushed me out of my comfort zone and asked me to be vulnerable and truly share with you from my heart. He’s taught me that no matter what circumstances life has thrown my way, it is possible to live an abundant life.

So why do I write here? I write for you, my readers. In this little corner of the internet you’ll find easy recipes, fun DIY projects, financial encouragement and tips and tricks to help you save money and encourage you as you walk through motherhood and marriage.

But part of the reason I write in this space is for me. The heart gushes that you’ll see on the pages of Thrifty T’s Treasures may not be read by thousands upon thousands of people, and I’m okay with that. Why? Because most of the time I write them just for myself. There’s something healing and freeing to my heart to open up and share what I’m learning on this journey of life. (And that’s crazy scary for this introverted girl to say.)

So, I write for both you and me. I write because it is my mission to help you live an abundant life. Yes, my friend, it is possible!

Whether this is your first or thousandth time here, I’m truly glad you’ve stopped by. If you’re new, my name is Tshanina…you can learn more about me here. I’d love for you to join the fun and hang out with us here.
