And it just so happens that I wrote my very first post for the blog today, so go sneak a peak if you have a second! Check us out and follow along on all of our budget-friendly adventures!

On a personal note, I’m SO excited that this new blog has come together! I had the idea a few weeks ago and was able to get some awesome ladies to be regular contributors. Team. Work. YEAH! (Pretty sure that’s a quote from a Disney Channel movie or something like that. I’m not even ashamed.)

Have an idea for BGGO or want to become a contributor? Don’t hesitate to contact us!

Isn’t it so fun when your ideas actually come to life?
