We have been working behind the scenes here at Madame Deals for the last few weeks on some new features. I have actually wanted these changes for a long time and I am so excited to see things coming along! From now on, all of the Grocery Store Deals will be posted on a separate page of Madame Deals. That means that the front page will not be cluttered up with all of the grocery store deals. It became apparent that many of the coupons, hot offers and general posts were getting missed with all of … [Read more...]

It has been awhile since I have given you a garden update. We had one of the best garden's we have ever had! Unfortunately with the heat we had many of the plants are dead now.

My basil and rosemary are doing well too. The problem is I have a tomato thief! I think the squirrels are coming and taking the tomatoes as they … [Read more...]

New Features on Madame Deals

I have been working on Madame Deals a bit this weekend and having fun adding new features! It is still a work in progress but I wanted to update you on a few things. My goal is to keep Madame Deals easy to use. We have had the store logo feature on our sidebar for over a year now. Basically you can click on a store logo in the sidebar and it will display the current deals for that store. The big box we had made the site load slowly and it took up a HUGE space. I finally found a tabbed widget … [Read more...]

  I thought I would share our how we met story.... My Alpha Xi Delta sisters met some "Navy guys" at Pleasure Island. This is a Disney owned club so don't get any funny ideas.

Amy decided that wasn't going to happen so when she found out these "Navy guys" were coming to Gainesville to hang  … [Read more...]
