So long… and thanks for all the food!

Thanks for all of your support over the years, everyone. Mashup Mom is going on indefinite hiatus as of January 1, 2024. This isn’t goodbye, though: It’s so long (for now!).

mashup mom is on hiatus in 2024

Happy New Year, everyone! As we move into 2024, I need to let you know that Mashup Mom is going on indefinite hiatus. We’ll likely be back with new ideas and new content in some form, some day — but as of January 1, 2024, there will be no new posts here until further notice.

Please enjoy browsing, and it’s been a genuine pleasure to connect with so many of you over the years — from our beginnings in 2009 as a humble coupons and deals site, through all of the later ALDI, meal planning, & recipes years, and now — on to whatever new adventures may await.

Thank you so much for your years of helpful material. You really saved our budget for a few years and made meal planning less stressful (since you did all the hard work - cooking is the fun part).

Just wanted to let you know that I looked forward to receiving your newsletter every Wednesday. My family of 5 has enjoyed so many of your recipes - the best being One Pot Pasta. It's become one of weekly staples. Thank you for inspiring me to love my kitchen and to cook healthy meals on a dime! Good luck on your next chapter!
