Ask the Readers: Could You Learn More about Frugality? (Chance to Win!)
***Congrats to our winners! ***
- $20 GC Comment winner: Carmen #18 - We've come a long way in becoming frugal, but there are still more steps we could take. I'd love to figure out how to connect our computer to the tv so we could drop satellite. I need to convince my husband that either meal planning or OAMC (once a month cooking) would be a good idea.
- Conference tickets winner: Karen #1 - I am in the Atlanta area (Decatur) and I would love to go to the Coupon workshop. I have picky eaters and no spare time. I have been trying to coupon but can't prepare well enough and then I don't save that much.
- $20 GC Twitter winner: oshkoshbgosh123 I'd like to learn how to motivate others into being more money conscious (specifically my fiance!)
- $20 Facebook winner: Courtney Kline Humphreys
Are you a know-it-all? Or do you feel that you still have something to learn about frugality? Some of our readers come here to find out how to live better on less. Others come here to share their knowledge with the community. Even others come to make fun of us and leave comments on how they know more than us (just kidding!). Whether you're a seasoned frugalist or a newbie trying to make ends meet, we at Wise Bread want to know what you want to know! You could even win an Amazon GC or event tickets just for sharing your answer.
Here's more info on the Atlanta-based workshop that you could win two tickets to:
550 Trackside presents The Coupon Workshop for Atlanta area residents, and we've got two tickets for a lucky winner! The Budget Author is thrilled to partner with some amazing, local sponsors to provide you with an outstanding event! A few of the perks? You’ll get to tour an incredible facility, and taste amazing food from McCray's Tavern on the Square, Aristeacrats, Costco, Rita's Italian Ice, and Truffleluscious! Have kids? No worries. Their friends at College Nannies & Tutors will take care of them for you, for free. The Coupon Workshop is the opportunity for you to learn how to reduce your grocery budget by 50-70%, without spending more than 30 minutes per week. The tickets are valued at $35 each, and Atlanta-based readers can win them by including that you'd like to win them in your comment. (You'll still be entered to win the Amazon GC, too!)
Due to the workshop being held so soon, we'll be closing the giveaway a few days early — so get your entries in! Just tell us what you'd like to learn about frugality (if anything) and be sure that if you live in Atlanta you comment that you'd like to be entered for the workshop prize, as well.
