Dear Readers,

This will be our last Small Change post, and we are sad to have to leave you to work on other projects. But we’ve really enjoyed coming up with ways for you — and us — to slog through this recession. I hope we have helped — or at least provided some entertaining company along the way! We also appreciated all of your comments. You gave us many great ideas as well.

We’ve covered everything from credit cards to cheap eats together, and our posts will still be archived here in case you want to revisit your favorites. Now we will be waiting, hoping and watching for signs of the recovery.

We hope you will still keep in touch and share your stories of how the economy is affecting your lives. Ylan will continue to write about consumers and retail, and Nancy will keep covering personal finance.

You can still find Ylan on Facebook , Twitter or plain old e-mail at muiy[at]

You can find Nancy on Facebook, Twitter or e-mail at trejosn[at]

And remember that dime Ylan wrote about a few months back, sitting on her desk as a reminder of the importance of Small Change.

It’s still there.

Nancy and Ylan

It's too bad this blog only lasted a few months :-(

All my favorite Post blogs are going away. I really enjoyed this one. I hope the Post think about bringing something similar back.

The money-saving tips are not new to people who have grown up with frugal parents. Both my parents grew up during the real Depression and WWII. Packing your own lunch, buying store brands, making our own clothes, re-tread, re-cycle, re-use is nothing new. Only 1 TV in the house; turn lights off when you leave a room; mow lawns to earn extra money; drive your car until it dies. We had our own vegetable garden and Mom canned and preserved so we'd have vegetables and fruits through the winter. "Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without" was standard operating procedure. You spoiled, pampered Yuppies have no idea.

I feel Small Change didn't fair well is because it didn't really provide new money savings tips or information. It seemed to be recycled from other sites and blogs. People are searching for new ways to save money since they have very little to spend. I would love to see Michelle Singletary write a daily blog about how to spend smartly on a tight budget.
