20 Best Happy Money Saver posts of 2013!

Looking back this year I am amazed at all the changes that have happened here on Happy Money Saver.  I feel like I have actually been able to live some of my dreams and take this blog in a totally new direction.  This is the year that I realized homesteading and making things homemade can be really fun and something I find a lot of joy in. I have raised chickens, made bars of soap, sewed an apron and more. And you have all been right there listening in and joining in my excitement in all these adventures. Thanks to everyone who has left a kind comment, sent me  a nice email with your compliments and advice – I read every single one of them and they mean a lot to me.

2014 will also be full of new adventures and recipes. I have many great posts all written down to get to work on.

So to celebrate this year I thought I would share with you the top 20 posts that people loved reading on my blog for 2013. Hope you enjoy. Oh and Happy New Year!!
