Chicago- Here I Come

When this post goes up, hopefully I will be on my flight heading to Chicago for the Savings.com Deal Pro Conference.   A big THANK YOU again to all who voted for me, I promise to work very hard to learn how to make this blog even more valuable!

My mom and I are going a day early so I can see Chicago (I have only ever been in the airport!)  I am looking forward to pizza,  the Museum of Science and Industry, and bargain shopping at Feline’s Basement

Then starting Thursday night I will be with some of the best savings bloggers in the country picking their brains and learning from their experience. 

So my posts may be a bit thin until Sunday but I will do my best to keep the deals coming in between seminars.  Thank you again for this amazing opportunity!

I Am A Savings.com Deal Pro!

So you guys helped me to get to Chicago for the Save Up conference, but I haven’t had much time to talk about who is sending me!  So I wanted to take a moment and give them some love today!

Savings.com is the company sponsoring the Save Up 2010 Conference.  While their website has many cool features I wanted to show you what I think is the coolest one today.

When you get to their site, click on the Get Advice tab.  In it, people post questions about certain items and let us Deal Pros go scouring around for the best answer!

So let’s say you want a copy of the newest Halo video game and want to know the best price.  Just post the question and sit back to watch the answers roll in!  What could be easier than that?

Go ahead and give it a shot!  You may be surprised at the answers you get!

Happy Birthday A Frugal Chick.com!

I can’t believe it, but today is the 1st birthday of A Frugal Chick.com!

A year ago with trembling hands I hit the “publish” button and wondered if anyone would even care. I wondered if I could keep at it- somewhere on the internet I have a personal blog which I am horrible at remembering to update. I wondered if I would ever figure out how to use WordPress.

I pulled up my blog’s statistics tonight to see where it has been: the blog has been read in all 50 states, and 59 countries. Almost 20,000 different people have visited atleast once. So to all of you who have ever told someone, thank you.

If you had told me the immense blessings that would have come from connecting with all of you, I never would have believed it. I am completely humbled by all who visit my blog- thank you for joining me on this frugal journey! I still have so much to learn. And as long as you are willing to travel with me, I will continue to try to learn as much as I can about “Living Well Without Going Broke.”

To celebrate, please remember to register to win a free massage (if you are in Hampton Roads).

Here is hoping for many more years of learning and growing together!
