Sorry for the shouting- I’m just so excited about this! Last week I had the privilege of meeting Brooke Wagner from CBS Denver and her Assistant, Eddie. The interview we did will be broadcast on CBS Denver channel 4 at 5 and 6 am and after the US Open (around 10 am) *Friday, September 9th. Most of you that have read this blog for very long know that I am a behind-the-scenes type of gal so I can’t say I wasn’t a little nervous (hopefully it doesn’t show!). The idea of being able to help others was what finally convinced me to embrace the challenge. What I am hoping to convey is that using coupons does not have to be “Extreme” and that saving money for your family can be accomplished in many ways that don’t necessarily include spending an enormous amount of time or climbing into dumpsters . What I learned from meeting Brooke is that she is extremely down to earth and uses her resources wisely, which is a better goal than to just collect a whole bunch of items that you don’t need. She definitely makes ‘couponing” a lot more glamorous. Be sure to check out Brooke’s Bargains to get some expert advice about saving in every area of your budget, not just at the grocery store.
To celebrate the premier of Denver Metro Moms on CBS Denver I’d like to do a giveaway. I have a $25 gift card to King Sooper to give to the winner, chosen by random.org. The drawing will start on 9/8 and run through 9/18 at midnight. To enter you will need to leave a comment below mentioning if you saw the interview and if so, what you learned. You may even get a glimpse of my super-couponing secret, more powerful than any double coupon. Enter once per day, per person or email address. Also, stop by and “Like” Denver Metro Moms on Facebook for an additional entry, then leave another comment. Facebook is great about protecting your privacy but that means I can’t reliably track your identifying information so that is why I ask for the comment. If you don’t happen to see your comment right away it is because the site has a security program that has me manually approve comments. That keeps us from having anything offensive show up on the site.
If we get 100 more “Likes” on Facebook I will add a second prize of another $25 gift card for a second winner. If you are a winner and are not in the area or are not a King Sooper shopper I will gladly exchange the gift card for a store of your preference.
Thanks for all your support and good luck!
